Ditch The Macs Queue For Chocolate Pie And Go For Legit Ones At Windowsill Pies

Singaporeans appear to have a sweet tooth. Or sweet teeth, in this case. The point is, with so many dessert franchises available in Singapore, we have so many options to choose from should a craving hit us at any time.

However, one particular type of dessert that doesn’t get enough love from us (in our opinion) is Pie. The dessert is traditionally more popular in Western culture but it offers so much versatility in the filling that goes into it.

Enter Windowsill Pies. These lovely pie-makers are making pie “hip” again with their interesting flavour combinations, using classic pie flavours as the base.

Pie, Anyone?

Windowsill Pies has 2 branches, though they recently closed the Suntec City branch and moved to Haji Lane.

Even if you’re not a fan of pie, you have to admit that these pies look gosh-darn delicious.

Diving in, a must-try is their Grasshopper Pie ($7.50 per slice). Rich dark chocolate ganache filling embedded with flourless chocolate cake is slathered with a thick layer of fresh mint cream and topped with large salted chocolate cookie crumbs.

Since you’re already here, why stop at 1 slice? Go for the incredibly photogenic Strawberry Lemon Pie ($7.50 per slice) next.

This pie is perfect for those who love their Lemon Meringue Pie. Made with tangy and refreshing lemon curd, pockets of strawberry jam and sweet meringue, this Strawberry Lemon Pie is surprisingly easy on the palate, without being too jelak.

There are 3 flavours that contain alcohol. The Banana Cognac Pie ($7 per slice), Rum And Apple Pie ($7.50 per slice), and the Coconut Lime Vodka Pie ($8 per slice).

The Banana Cognac Pie is inspired by the classic Banoffee Pie, made with banana parfait, almond brittle, and cognac cream. No coffee here.

No prizes for guessing what the Rum And Apple Pie is based on. A Christmas special that ended up being a permanent menu item, this Apple pie is made with poached apples, rum-soaked raisins and baked almond custard.

And finally, the tropical Coconut Lime Vodka. Lime curd, cubes of vodka jelly (OMG????) and coconut cream makes this pie. The only thing that’s missing is pineapple, else it’ll be a Pina Colada Pie.

If these don’t make you want to eat pie, feel free to live a pie-less existence, in gloom and misery. We’ll be here eating our pies, living life with clear skin and full 8 hours of rest.

Just kidding, we just really love pies okay?
