When Molly first told me about Bang Bang, for some reason the first thing that came to mind was the song in the movie Kill Bill.
When Molly told me that Bang Bang was a pie and biscuit shop, I was skeptical. I had heard that pies were the next sweets trend, but I didn’t get it and told her that the trend never hit Minneapolis.
But then I walked into Bang Bang and I instantly thought “Why doesn’t Minneapolis have one of these?”
I’m a huge fan of pie, but I’m always a little suspect when the pie crust is too darn perfect. Real homemade pie should look imperfect…just like the imperfect people who make them.
As far as I’m concerned this apple pie is pretty darn pretty and delicious!
And this pumpkin pie was definitely the most delicious pumpkin pie I’ve ever had. I believe pumpkin pie is one of the most difficult types of pie, because most of the time the pumpkin tastes processed. The pumpkin in this pie tasted as God intended!
What made me giggle were the Pie Fries. I call them Bang Bang Fries. The availability is limited as they are made from the crust scraps after the pies are made.
And although the butter and jellies are for the biscuits Bang Bang sells, I used the Cherry Chai jelly and the Peach Butter on my Pie Fries (although they are just as good plain).
Bang Bang is located in Logan Square in Chicago. It is just a handful of blocks off of the Blue Line.
