Bridgeport Edition: Bridgeport Farmers Market - Magpie's Bakery
I went to the Bridgeport Farmers Market in the fall and saw Magpie's Bakery, which had a cute little set-up flocked with flowers.
Then I recalled this name before: They competed in a pepperoni roll competition. And the crust was phenomenal. Typically, they create desserts and hand pies but stretched their culinary wings for that competition. So, when I saw them, I wanted to try their specialty this time: sweets.
I love this piece on this bakery, where it goes on to define "magpie."
– any of various birds (especially Pica pica) related to the jays but having a long graduated tail and black-and-white or brightly colored plumage
– a person who chatters noisily
– one who collects indiscriminately
And, it talks about how the crust recipe is what makes these desserts unique (agree!) - it's a recipe that has been passed down from her grandmother.
I tried a strawberry rhubarb hand pie with this cute little floral design. And, wow, that crust.
