Best Pie to Try: Apple Mountain Berry

Gold once brought folks to the small mountain town of Julian in San Diego County. Now apples are the main draw—and Julian Pie Co. your requisite first stop. Founder Liz Smothers purchased an apple farm in 1989 and has built a family business out of its bounty. The Apple Mountain Berry combines raspberries, strawberries, and boysenberries under a crumb top, while the Natural sticks to apples and apple cider (no preservatives, sugar, or artificial flavors added). You can request your slice with cinnamon ice cream, but that may not cut it. Don’t be surprised if you leave with a frozen whole pie and a bag of piecrust cookies for the road.
