Cherry Haze Mini Pie
There are a few things we really don’t like making from scratch: tennis shoes, a BMW X6 and pies. Whether it's creating the perfect, flaky crust or getting the filling just right, pies are better left to the pros, especially the medicated minis you’ll find from the Better Baked edible company. Adorable as they are potent, you can tell that each pie was made from scratch by its seasoned veterans, each slightly imperfect in a very perfect way. And since Better Baked is well known for its Cherry Haze Mini Pie, we opted to give it a try and were not disappointed. The ingredients are natural and fresh, giving them a home-cooked feel without tons of preservatives. That also means they won’t keep long sitting out, so Better Baked recommends you freeze them if you’re not planning on consuming it within seven days. Don’t worry, though, as the back of the package gives detailed instructions on how to reheat them in the oven—a novel and tasty concept. With a buttery crust that is firm and flaky and cherries that aren’t too cloyingly sweet, it’s a great after-dinner treat that will knock you out as effects set in quickly. Just split it with another patient, as the 175mg in each pie means the dosage recommendation is one-quarter of the pie. And don’t tell mom. She’d be jealous.
