Why, Pie!

This is a slice of decadent and lovely butterscotch pie from Butter Lovins in Cabot.  It is one of the finest examples I have found of  this sort of pie, and the first I've had in ages that included meringue.  Not too butterscotchy-y... more like... well, honestly, first thing I thought of was how pound cake batter tastes.  Good stuff.  And the crust is flaky and not sweet.

The little restaurant is a nice example of the local lunch joint -- cheerily clean and bright, small, a few bar stools for counter service and several country-style tables.  They have lunch specials (today it's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, tomorrow Ham & White Beans, Wednesday Chicken & Dumplings) for $4.25 and a mean Chef's Salad, too.  But what people have kept telling me all about is the pie -- chocolate, coconut, whatever happens to be the flavor du jour, $2.79 a slice.

Just another great little place for lunch in Cabot.  You'll find it on the west side of North Second Street a few blocks north of the Dancing Baby sign.  Worth a drop-in.
