Not that anyone really needs an excuse for a warm slice of pie luxuriating in a slowly melting scoop of ice cream, but Magpie Artisan Boutique has just found a whole new way to sweeten the deal.
On Wednesday, June 18, the South Street pie shop will be serving up slices with free scoops of Bassetts Ice Cream — usually available for an additional $2.
The no-charge lily-gilding applies to the whole menu of sweet pies, including the two latest seasonal additions, strawberry crumb and sour cherry lattice.
Just purchase a slice of pie, with prices from $5.25 to $6 a slice, and score a free scoop.
Magpie has also released its menu of pies to look forward to this season, including July’s blackberry lattice, blueberry polenta crumb and honey apricot blackberry.
Come August, look for peach bourbon, peach raspberry orange blossom and plum cherry almond crumb.
And if stuffing it all onto a fork seems like too much work, the bakery’s pie milkshakes are always a viable option.
