It’s a real downer when summer promptly abandons us in September. It’s a cruel time of year, but keeping our spirits warm as the cold weather returns is Petsi Pies. From their Beacon Street bakery just beyond Inman Square, founder Renee “Petsi” McLeod and crew will soon be bring back the seasonal apple pear cranberry pie made with candied walnut topping. And that hardens our crust. It’s due out on October 1. (If you’ve got a nut allergy, the pumpkin is going to be your designated savior.) This pie contains a hearty mix of tart and crunch that will stop us from writing gloom and doom long-form poetry.
