Winston Pies will offer their PieBite for just $3.14. The PieBite is 3.14-inch large and come in a variety of flavors, including Harvest Apple, Blue Ridge Blueberry, Dixie Classic Cherry and Chocolate Cowgirl.

The croissant flavors include key lime pie filled with key lime curd and topped with a toasted vanilla meringue; apple pie featuring a baked-apple filling with cinnamon caramel and a pie crust crumble topping; and banana cream pie topped Nilla wafers and dried banana pieces.

At Alta Adams chef Keith Corbin is serving up some delectable slices of sweet potato pie for dessert. Topped with vanilla-bourbon whipped cream and grated candied pecans, the pie is a blend of sweet potatoes and the restaurant’s custom sugar and spice blend.

Salt & Straw celebrates by bringing back their Wild-Foraged Berry Slab Pie, as part of their March “Flavor Vault” series.
