Angus Barn's Chocolate Chess Pie

Hayes Barton Cafe and Dessertery's Peanut Butter Mousse Pie
Go big or go home! That's certainly the philosophy at Hayes Barton Cafe. This Raleigh institution is serving up pies more than five-and-a-half inches high. A slice of peanut butter mousse pie can easily be shared, but don't hold back if you want to devour it solo. The cafe starts with a graham cracker crust and then adds a thin layer of chocolate. A creamy peanut butter mousse serves as the filling and, of course, is covered in more chocolate and topped with whipped cream.
Beasley's Chicken + Honey's Sweet Potato Pie
Bittersweet's Derby Pie
Cozy up with an evening coffee and a slice of Bittersweet's derby pie. You'll love the salted caramel on top of this chocolate-bourbon pecan pie. And yes, evening coffee certainly means you can add a shot of Frangelico to your latte. Bittersweet also serves up delicious cocktails to pair with your pie.
Driftwood Southern Kitchen’s Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
