It’s National Coconut Cream Pie Day

posted by on May 8 at 10:02 AM

For real. (National Apple Pie Day is coming up: May 13). My favorite version is the Triple Coconut Cream Pie at Etta’s on Western near the market. The recipe (I’ve not attempted it since a slice is so easy to procure) is available in Tom Douglas’ Seattle Kitchen cookbook (an all-around great resource for locals; the crab-cake recipe is a foolproof). But back to the pie… the Dahlia Bakery (Fourth and Virginia) makes the masterpiece and sells it in four sizes: a nine-inch pie (serves 6-8, $32), four-inch baby pie (serves 2-4, $15), by the slice ($4.40), and a bite-sized mini pie ($2).

Anyone who works near there and is coming to Slog Happy tonight should bring me a slice! I will repay you and buy you a drink for your trouble.

I may be the answer to your dreams, depending on my 4 oclock meeting. :)

You are an evil, evil human being. It is almost lunch time, I am starving, and you tempt me with that. I used to work near Dahlia's but I'm up in the U district now. Pout.

Please, bring pie.

Bribing judges is a long and honorable tradition ...

$32 for a 9-inch pie? Never!

Oh, bauhaus, you say that, but you must never have had a piece of it...

...we just burned through one this past weekend. the shit is good.

...and it's actually $5 more because you have to pay the deposit on the pie plate.'s still well worth it.

I've had some mighty righteous coconut cream pies in my day, but never have I had one worth $32. I'd rather make one myself - and for $32 I could make three.

And for chrissake - for $32 couldn't they throw in the fucking pie plate?

I think I have to make a coconut cream pie now.

Why don't they do Apple Pie Day in the fall?
