2 month old Windowsill Pies was started by 2 brothers who wanted to fill up the “pie” gap in the local market. The duo of brothers are pretty young, but still, who says young chefs can’t produce great food? We took the leap of faith and went ahead to try 2 of their creations.

Banana Cognac Almond Brittle Pie ($6) – The cream-like top layer of the pie tasted somewhat like banana flavoured yoghurt. It wasn’t as cloyingly sweet nor creamy as whipped cream but there was a tinge of sourness which made it refreshing. However, unlike what was suggested in the name, the cognac was very faint and barely detectable. There were bits of fresh banana embedded within the tart, which provided a burst of sweetness every time we bit into it. We particularly enjoyed the almond brittles! They were solid, crunchy and fragrant. They possessed a charred toffee sweetness with a slight saltiness. It was unfortunate that the tart crust had a slightly raw egg stench. This was not really to our liking but we deemed it a small flaw. On the whole, we very much enjoyed the Banana Cognac Almond Brittle Pie with its combination of different textures and tastes.

Morello Cherry Pie ($6.50) – The Morello Cherry Pie  was more refreshing due to the juicy and sour morello cherries. We were unsure if the pie fillings came from off-the-shelf jam, but it gave the feeling that it was home-made. The sourness of the morello cherry pie fillings overpowered any form of sweetness which it may have possessed. The sugar grains atop was a nice complement to the sourness of the morello cherry. The sugar laced crust also tasted more charred, eliminating the raw egg stench which we felt in the Banana Cognac Almond Brittle Pie.

The pie shop used to be located in Jalan Besar area. A few months ago, it relocated to Upper Thomson area. Currently it is located at the end of a row of shophouses. One would not be able to find it from the main road, as it is behind a row of shophouses and also blocked by the ongoing MRT construction.

Pistachio & Pear (Festive) ($7.50/slice)
Pistachio frangipane, apricot chunks, poached pear flan and cinnamon streusel.
The pistachio frangipane is moist with hint of pistachio in it. The poached pear is not bad although I would perfer it to be softer with a melt in the mouth texture. The cinnamon flavour here is barely there.

Camp Symmetry ($8/slice, $68/whole pie)
Crafted exclusively for Camp Symmetry 2013, this pie is filled with white chocolate ganache, topped with white truffle infused cookie streusel and finished with candied thyme and a meringue mushroom!
The mushroom is so cute but does not taste too sweet. The thyme is a candy to me. It is a very rich pie without been too sweet. I like the truffle infused cookie streusel which really has the truffle taste and one usually assoicate it with savoury food.

Hot Chocolate ($5/small)
The small cup of hot chocolate comes with latte art on top. It is rich and thick.

Overall the pies are great. Selection is limited but great. The staffs are friendly and great with their recommendation. Water is available on the tables. Only cash and NETS are accepted here.

Pies

 

1. Strawberry Lemon (S$7)

Bombed with sourness. It's pretty much suitable for those of you who prefer to eat sour things instead of sweets.

2. Banana Slice (S$7)

A little sweet compared with the previous one but not overly. The cream on top was so smooth and light. Tasty!
