New Haven / Eat / Sixpence Pie Company

Sixpence Pie, Southington and West Haven

While every region in America wants to take credit for pie (really, is there anyone who doesn’t like PIE?), I, of course, consider it a New England invention. And Sixpence Pie Company has taken it upon themselves to make Connecticut the pie epicenter. I discovered Sixpence at Coventry Farmer’s Market, selling warm, miniature versions of their famous fruit pies. I started with a tiny strawberry rhubarb, the perfect blend of sweet and tart flavors with a buttery, flaky crust. I had to have more! I circled back for a savory one: a Shepherd’s hand-pie, stuffed with seasoned beef, silky potato and bits of carrot. The potato varieties are no-brainer yum, a Yankee take on a Brooklyn knish, but it’s the meat hand pies (oh, the Little Piggy: cider-braised pulled pork and caramelized onion!) and fruit varieties that stand out here. And you can always grab a mac and cheese pie and make pretend it’s for the kids! Catering available, too. Pie for everyone! Locations in Southington, CT and West Haven (and home delivery through Red House Gifts).
