Ted’s Bakery, Haleiwa HI
Mom had read from a magazine that a popular bakery existed on the north shore – Ted’s Bakery. We dropped by and it was small but with many visitors, all purchasing coffee and pies. Despite their famous pie being the Chocolate Haupia Cream Pie, I knew Mom was not into chocolate or haupia cream.
Therefore, we got a slice of the Pineapple Pie. The pineapple preserve-like filling was sweet, a little tart, and very delicious. The chunks of pineapple were fresh and really good. The piecrust was thin and crumbly, which I was glad of. Nothing is worse in a dessert than a thick, bland piecrust. The sugar on top was also a nice addition but the freshness of the pineapples was what made the pie great.
