Here's a novel gift idea: send a pie. Two Fat Cats, the American-style bakery at 47 India St. in Portland, is now shipping its famous pies within the United States. Orders must be placed online.
Pies currently available for shipping in either the 7-inch or 9-inch size are: blueberry, bourbon pecan, mixed berry and sour cherry. Seasonal pies, including apple, can be shipped through February, 2014. The pies may be purchased as unbaked frozen or baked frozen and all shipments are either overnight or two-day to retain freshness.
