Chocolate Dream

Paula Lynn's Really Homemade Sandwich & Sweet Shop. This pie is a fantastic chocolate mousse on top of a cloud of delightfully light cream cheese in a double-layered blind-baked flour crust. It's marvelous. 304 N. Reynolds Road, Bryant. 501-847-2066. 6 a.m.-2 p.m. Mon.-Sat.

Sweet Potato

Say's. There's an easy explanation to why people have been ordering Say McIntosh's sweet potato pies for decades: The orange-flavored flour-crusted pies are addictive. 2801 W. Seventh St. 664-6656. 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Thu., 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri.-Sat. noon-5 p.m. Sun.

Chocolate Caramel Mousse Torte

Kroger, 1900 Polk St. 661-9699. 6 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Sun.

Peanut Butter

Three Sams BBQ. A slice of this thick, tall pie might weigh a pound.

It's the best peanut butter pie in the state. 10508 Mann Road, Mabelvale. 407-0325. 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Mon.-Tue., 10:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Wed.-Sat.

Raspberry Cream Cheese

Pecan

Your Mama's Good Food. How many pecans can you pack into a pie? The Stocktons may be trying for a record. There are pecans on top, pecans in the custard and touches of maple and vanilla throughout. 221 W. Second St. 372-1811. Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

NORTHEAST ARKANSAS

Apple

Betty's Steak & Chicken. The flaky layered-flour crust of this creation is light compared to the thick, syrupy filling packed with apple bits inside. 1203 N. Illinois, Harrisburg. 870-578-2855. 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Mon.-Sat.

Raisin

Chef's In. Old fashioned and creamy, this is a light custard and whipped cream pie with swollen raisins. 105 Burke Ave., Jonesboro 870-934-8962. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. daily. Cash only.

Peanut Butter

Gina's Place. Thick and rich, this cream-topped peanut butter pie, nuts and chocolate chips in a graham cracker crust is just about a meal in itself. 2005 E. Highland Suite 109, Jonesboro. 870-910-3900. 6:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Mon.-Fri.

Peanut Butter Meringue

Southside Grill. A peanut butter-flavored custard topped by a fantastic toasted meringue, this pie has a flavor of the old Chick-O-Stick candy. 2121 Batesville Road, Batesville. 870-251-2229. 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Mon.-Fri. Sun.

Half-and-Half

Ms. Lena's. The best of both worlds — a creamy chocolate custard with traditional meringue on one side, a thick coconut custard under coconut meringue on the other. Highway 33 N, DeValls Bluff. 870-998-1393. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Thu.-Sat. Cash only.

NORTH ARKANSAS

Fresh Apple

Sodie's. Crunchy apple slices from local orchards star in this simple Dutch crusted delight. Hwy 178 at Hwy 62-412, Flippin. 870-453-2218. Closed until spring.

Coconut Cream

Viola Stampede. Coconut everywhere, from the coconut flavor in the whipped cream to the crushed coconut cookie crust. A cloud of joy. 9740 Highway 62 W., Viola. 870-458-2112. 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Tue.-Fri. 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat.-Mon.

  • Cotton's muddy record

    The best thing we have to look forward to is the certainty that we will have someone other than Tom Cotton to represent us in the 4th Congressional District. His voting record has been an embarrassment to humanity. When his record was brought up as an issue after he announced his candidacy for the Senate, he accused his opposition of slinging mud. At least we know that Tom Cotton is honest: He acknowledged what his voting record looks like.
  • Roommates

    The Observer is a few months from 30 and still has a roommate. Just to be clear, this is a share-the-rent deal, not a share-the-bed deal. I'm not gay, and therein lies the problem.
