With a food truck emblazoned with the logo and moniker The Pie Hole, it’s pretty clear that owner Lauren Harrison is a purveyor of pies. And that’s just what she wants.

[dropcap]Harrison[/dropcap] has always loved to bake, and when she expressed a desire to do something fulfilling in her work, her mother suggested she pursue this long-time love. She attended pastry school in Bentonville, Ark., and the rest is history, as they say.
“I chose pie because it’s so versatile. For instance, today we’re serving Boston cream pie, which is technically cake. It’s not trendy and it’s a classic dessert,” Harrison said.
She normally sets up three times weekly and serves up to four or five varieties. In the fall and winter, the menu includes savory offerings such as quiche, shepherds pie and chicken potpie. All slices are $4 each, and entire pies are each sold for $27. Flavors include banana split, chocolate chip pecan, chocolate coconut cream, peanut butter Oreo, strawberry Nutella pretzel and many more. The Pie Hole serves gluten- and dairy-free slices based on demand or entire specialty pies by order.
