America's Best Pies: Mission Pie's Plum Frangipane Tart

Travis E. Smith

Mission Pie, San Francisco

Best Pie to Try: Plum Frangipane Tart

Named for the district in which it resides, this three-and-a-half-year-old pie shop uses only seasonal ingredients, which are locally sourced whenever possible. (This is San Francisco, after all.) The must-try pie is actually a tart prepared with plum and frangipane, a sweet paste made from almonds. The sweet nuttiness of the almonds comes through with impressive clarity, as does the fleeting flavor of the ripe fruit. (missionpie.com) —Charlotte Druckman
