Magpies On Pink Street is powered by Maggie McDowell the sole owner/operator of Magpies. She has a strong commitment to fresh local ingredients for her pies and is dedicated to perfecting the art of pie crust making. “All-butter, all-flaky, all-delicious. It’s the backbone of any good pie, and they take great pride in the art of crust-making.”
A transplant from NYC, Maggie fell in love with the Catskill Mountains and the abundance of local ingredients for her pies. One of Magpies mantras is that “the season dictates the menu”. “I like to get creative each week, and I choose a handful of pie flavors based around what I can get my hands on locally that week!”
What’s Baking At Magpies On Pink Street:
Bursting with ripeness, these pies show off seasonal ingredients at their peak. Ginger-y Rhubarb Crumble in late May, Strawberry-Rhubarb in June, Blueberry-Lemon and Hot Honey Peach in August, Caramel-Apple in Fall, and Pear-Cranberry in winter…..
Custards, creams, and ganaches galore! Meyer Lemon with Local Honey & Lavender, Tipsy Key Lime, Caramel-and Coconut Custard, Mexican Chocolate, Diner-Style Peanut Butter, and Derby Pie are a few favorites that I feature throughout the year.
Whether it’s Christmastime, 4th of July, or Thanksgiving (the greatest pie holiday), special offerings abound to deck your family tables.
