šŸ° Picnic-Perfect Pie Pairings: Elevate Your Outdoor Feast šŸ°

Summer is synonymous with picnics ā€“ a time to gather with loved ones, enjoy the sunshine, and savor delicious food in the great outdoors. But what's a picnic without a sweet treat? Tootie Pie has you covered with our irresistible selection of pies and cheesecakes, perfectly paired with refreshing beverages and other picnic favorites to elevate your outdoor feast.

šŸ‹ Lemon Icebox Pie:

  • Pair with: Sparkling lemonade, fresh berries, or a simple cheese and cracker plate.
  • Why it works: The tangy sweetness of the lemon pie is balanced by the bubbly lemonade or the natural sugars of the fruit. The cheese and crackers provide a savory contrast.

šŸ’š Key Lime Pie:

  • Pair with: Iced tea (with a sprig of mint!), grilled pineapple, or a tropical fruit salad.
  • Why it works: The tartness of the Key lime pie is enhanced by the herbal notes of the tea and the sweetness of the fruit. Grilled pineapple adds a smoky, caramelized dimension.

šŸ„„ Coconut Supreme Pie:

  • Pair with: Cold brew coffee, dark chocolate squares, or a mango salsa with chips.
  • Why it works: The rich, creamy coconut pie pairs well with the bold flavor of cold brew or dark chocolate. The mango salsa offers a surprising, tangy twist.

šŸ° Mango Cheesecake:

  • Pair with: Tropical fruit punch, coconut water, or a spicy shrimp salad.
  • Why it works: The sweetness of the mango cheesecake complements the fruity punch or the subtle sweetness of coconut water. The spicy shrimp salad creates a delightful sweet-and-savory contrast.

Additional Tips for a Perfect Picnic:

  • Variety is key: Offer a selection of pies and pairings to satisfy everyone's taste buds.
  • Don't forget the savory: Balance your sweet treats with savory snacks like sandwiches, salads, or charcuterie boards.
  • Pack it up right: Use reusable containers and insulated bags to keep your food fresh and at the right temperature.
  • Choose the right location: Find a scenic spot with ample shade and a comfortable place to spread out your blanket.

No matter what you choose to pair with your Tootie Pie desserts, remember to relax, enjoy the company of your loved ones, and savor the simple pleasures of a summer picnic!
