Double Lemon Pie, The Stockholm Pie Company
Stockholm, Wisconsin

A four-year-old corner store on the Great River Road along the upper Mississippi, the Stockholm Pie Company has quickly become a magnet for Roadfood pilgrims with a sweet tooth. The pie inventory varies day to day; pray that double lemon is on the menu when you visit. It is a velvet-soft lemon chess pie crowned with an exhilarating sweet-tart ribbon of lemon curd freckled with little bits of citrus. All this in a fragile crust that breaks into savory smithereens when hit with the tines of a fork. On a paper plate, of course.
