I grew up in a family of tremendous home bakers, but I’ll tell you what- there’s nothing you could tell 8 year old Joy to sway her from the indisputable fact that the best pies came dangerously hot, in a precisely folded paper container, filled with apple flavoring in a delightfully crisp crust from McDonald’s. The golden arches, where the cheeseburgers taste like candy in the most perplexing way. The pies, though! The pies were delicious and if I was lucky enough to have one, it meant that I likely also had french fries in my life so… clearly it was the best of days.
I’ll tell you what’s so great about McDonad’s pies.
