Bourbon Chocolate Pecan

Delicious Temptations. The bourbon is the star in this rich pie. 11200 N. Rodney Parham. 225-6893. 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m daily.

Dutch Apple

Diane's Gourmet Luxuries. One of the best apple pies you'll encounter in Central Arkansas. The apples always come out a little crispy. Only whole pies available. 11121 N. Rodney Parham. 224-2639. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sat.

Hershey, Lemon Pecan

E's Bistro. A customer gave Elizabeth McMullen the recipe for her restaurant's elegant flour-crust Lemon Pecan pie, a layer of pecans over a mild lemon custard that's delightfully hearty. The Hershey pie plays up the best of that signature Hershey-chocolate flavor with the perfect creamy texture. 3812 John F. Kennedy Blvd., North Little Rock. 771-6900. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tue.-Sun

Cherry

Ed's Custom Bakery. Pungently tart and sweet at the same time, this sugar-cookie crusted pie was meant to be paired with whipped cream. 256 Oak St., Conway. 501-327-2996. Mon.-Fri. 6 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat. 6 a.m.-4 p.m. CC, no alcohol.

PCP

Ed & Kay's Restaurant. A perfect balance of pecans, coconut and pineapple make up this heartier pie that's often overlooked in favor of Kay Diemer's famed Mile High meringues on the menu. 15228 Interstate 30, Benton. 501-315-3663. 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wed.-Sat., 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sun.

Cinnamon Cream

Franke's Cafeteria. Layers of graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon-infused cream and whipped cream are blended together in this most memorable pie at the state's longest continually operating restaurant. 11121 N. Rodney Parham, 225-4487; Regions Building, 400 Broadway, 372-1919. 10:45 a.m.-2 p.m. daily.

Chocolate Cream Meringue

Gimme Some Sugar Bakeshop. Worth a drive to Greenbrier, Xandra Sharpe's creation comes in traditional or personal sizes, with the creamiest meringue you'll find and an excellent rich custard. 294 S. Broadview, Greenbrier. 501-679-5137. 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tue.-Fri., 9 a.m.-noon. Sat.

Banana Cream

Holly's Country Cooking. Holly's makes a mean peanut butter pie, but the banana cream pie is everything that makes banana pudding delecious in a pie crust. Made fresh daily. 120 Harkrider, Conway. 501-328-9738. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Mon.-Fri.

Key Lime

The House. It's no joke: the Key Lime Pie at The House is one of the smoothest, freshest Key Lime pies you'll find in the state. 722 N. Palm. 663-4500. 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Mon.-Thu., 11 a.m.-11:30 p.m. Fri., 10 a.m. - 11:30 p.m. Sat., 10 a.m.- 11 p.m. Sun.

Velvet Lips Chocolate Cream,

Hunka Pie. Chris Monroe offers many noteworthy pies, from a French blackberry to a Chocolate Peanut Butter, but this one is arguably the best — a smooth and mellow imported chocolate in a silky mousse under real whipped cream. 250 Military Drive, North Little Rock. 612-4754. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tue.-Sat.

Pecan

Gibb's Grocery. The custard on this traditional pecan pie is so thick you could glue photos to the wall with it. 7781 Hwy. 167 S, Sheridan. 870-942-5284. 7 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

Pineapple Cream Pie

Just Like Mom's. A cream pie that's really a thick custard pie, with a smooth vanilla custard base mixed with pineapple chunks and juice. 3140 E. Kiehl, Sherwood. 833-0402. 6:30 a.m.-9 a.m., 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m., 5 p.m.-8 p.m Mon.-Fri.

Sweet Potato

Lindsey's Hospitality House. A hearty sweet potato pie made with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. It's an autumn pie that's almost savory. 207 Curtis Sykes Drive, North Little Rock. 374-5707. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Mon., 11 a.m.-7 p.m Tue.-Thu. and Sat., 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Fri.

Blueberry

Luigi's. The flattest pie on the list, with rich blueberry filling on a thin pizza crust. Different and substantial. 22000 Interstate 30 N, Bryant. 501-847-1110. 11 a.m. -9 p.m. Mon.-Sat

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
