For more than two decades, thousands of cream pies with “mile-high” meringue, and fruit and pecan pies with tender pastry crusts, have been created in a tiny shop on Woodland Avenue. Missy’s Pie Shop has now moved across the street to 502 East High Street so there’s more elbow room for rolling and crimping dough.
With modern equipment, we can’t imagine how much more delightful the pies will taste. The new location has seating for customers and is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. You’ll want to place your Thanksgiving order soon because even with the additional space, the bakers are still limited on time. They make pies for all of the Ramsey’s Diners.
