What a delightful post. I felt like I was on the trip with you! While I'm sorry you got that speeding ticket, it sounds like you made the best of the situation. Can't wait to see some bumbleberry pie on your blog!


Delightful! Enjoy life and immortilize a terrific day and trip with Officer Bumbleberry Pie. I can't wait for the pie; the trip was a joy. Glad I could come along.


Hi Julie - I was just up that way too - we visited King Arthur and the Blue Benn on Thursday! We were too full for pie, but we were eyeing them before dinner. Maybe next time!


Ivonne and Tanna, I'm feverishly looking for the perfect bumbleberry pie recipe. I had a consultation last night with the peerless Bakerina, and I know she'll come through with some good information.

Cathy -- What did you get at King Arthur? I do hope you loved the Blue Benn -- it's such a favorite of ours. The best things are their homemade soups and the macaroni and cheese made with Vt. cheddar. And I'm always too full for pie, so I never fail to get a slice to go...


You can call it "Officer Pie" for short, and many years and generations down the road, when it has become a traditional classic, folks can speculate on how it got it's name. Some researcher will stumble upon a reference to your blog...


Hi Julie,
I just picked up the latest issue of "Fine Cooking" magazine at Penn Station for my LIRR trip back to the island yesterday, and , behold, a recipe for the very pie you are lusting after!
Pick one up post haste and let me know how is comes out!

Excuse me LOL'ing: neheh, we're not the only ones getting tickets, neheh!;-D (See this one: http://zarahogmartiniusa.blogspot.com/2006/05/den-skulle-i-ikke-snydes-for.html)


"Officer Pie" -- I like that, Lindy! It reminds me of Luisa's post on the mysteriously named "Hypocrite Pie": http://wednesdaychef.typepad.com/the_wednesday_chef/2006/06/john_t_edges_hy.html

Heather, I'm now on a search for a copy of Fine Cooking -- thanks for the tip! Great to see you here too -- I've been thinking of you.

Zarah, sad but true -- it's all too easy to be caught by those overzealous officers, hiding in the bushes and just waiting for innocent, happy travelers like ourselves who happen to be going a teeny bit too fast...


Hi Julie, me again... I had the pot roast, which was a little disappointing. I was tempted by the macaroni and cheese, so I'll have to remember that for next time. I'd only had breakfast there before. I didn't buy much at King Arthur, just some maple sugar candy and one of those funny-shaped whisks, but I really enjoyed the visit.

Speeding Ticket

That was a sweet post. I've been doing some boring marketing work on speeding tickets and your post came up - it was a delightful read - bumbleberry! Ok, back to work....
