Homey new bakery tenders traditional Southern pies in Mansfield
Pie has arrived, pie is here: Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop has opened a new shop in Mansfield, at 3150 East Broad St. #110.
According to a release, the bakery is owned by the Sheriff family, who have lived in the Mansfield community for more than a decade.
Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop is a chain founded in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 2012. It made its local debut in 2016 with a branch in Colleyville.
They offer scratch-made pies in four- and nine-inch sizes. Traditional pies like buttermilk, chocolate cream, coconut cream, Key lime, apple pie, and pecan are served year-round.
Seasonal pies include lemon icebox and strawberry pie. Specials might include a buttermilk pie with blackberries, or a chocolate-mint brownie pie. They also do thumbprint cookies with creamy fillings.
They also have a homey atmosphere, from the white-washed walls to the merchandise for sale in a cupboard, designed to create a nostalgic experience.
Founders Scott and Meredith Layton own and operate the original Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop in Knoxville. There currently are 11 Buttermilk Sky Pie Shops, located in Texas and the Southeast.
In addition to Mansfield, Texas locations already open include Colleyville, Allen, Frisco, and Midland, and there are two more coming soon, in Arlington and Plano. Pie for everyone.
