Croshaw's Gourmet Pies

On our latest trip to Utah, we decided to stop off at Croshaw's Gourmet Pies in St. George. It’s located right off the 15 freeway at Bluff St. It’s a cute, small store tucked into a strip mall. The pies were extremely reasonably priced ($8-$10) which made me want to buy several, but I limited myself to three. I bought a blueberry doublecrust, a cherry doublecrust and a custard pie. 



First off, the crust was disappointing. The texture and taste were no better than a frozen pie out of the grocery store. The cherry and blueberry fillings could easily have come from a can which means they didn’t taste bad, but weren’t impressive either. The custard pie had very little going for it. It had a better homemade flavor and some tasty spices sprinkled on top that were attractive.  


On the other hand, we also bought a slice of German Chocolate pie (no picture) and it was to die for.  There were chocolate chips and nuts in the filling and a delicious, light meringue on top.  I would definitely go back for another try just because the chocolate pie was so yummy. I’ve heard the Black Bottom Pie is the store favorite.

Do you have a favorite place to get pie? Do tell us about it.

  3. I don't eat pies that are not homemade. They are always inferior!
