In 1985, Broadway actor Arnold Wilkerson started a side business from his love of baking, which stems from vivid memories of his grandmother cutting up freshly fallen apples from their backyard trees for homemade pies of her own. After first opening a pie shop in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, Wilkerson’s homespun baked goods were soon recognized as some of the best in New York City. Decades later, the accolades continue to roll in for the Little Pie Company’s scratch-made desserts. The Three Berry Pie features strawberries, blueberries and raspberries tucked under a handmade lattice crust, which gets baked until golden brown perfection.
