I had to think twice about writing about this, because I normally like to keep things to myself. This, however, is one of those things that you must absolutely share with everyone. It’s too good not to. I’m talking about calamansi pie. specifically, the calamansi pie from Earnest Bakes.
If you like tart desserts, this will blow you out of the water. The filling is creamy, supported by a thin, sweetish crust. Its got the right ratio of sweet to sour, meaning that if you take a spoonful, your face will immediately scrunch up in tart-induced delight. How can you not want something like that, especially after a rich meal?
No, I didn’t get the pie for free, just in case you think this is an endorsement. I had to pay for my pie, then made the mistake of taking it home for Christmas, where my family all but demolished it. My mom, who is not fond of pastries, still thinks about it, and will every now and then ask if I can buy another one for her. I keep telling her that I will, but am secretly making plans to eat most of it myself. I can’t help it. It’s that good.
Check out her Facebook page for other pastries. A recommendation would be the chunky chocolate chip cookies, which are absolutely divine. I know this because I got some, at a time when I was feeling low. They are great things to cover the hole in your heart with.
