Acadian Slice - Lafayette

Could this be the most perfect hand pie in Louisiana?  It could!
 -- We're calling this the King Cake Hand Pie (because King Pie doesn't sound right) but they call it it The Krewe.  If you're looking for a fun and delicious alternative to the traditional King Cake approach then this is the way to go.  Frankly, this is just a great way to go . . . . . Obviously a hand pie is all about the crust and this is one of the best you can find.  Crisp, flaky, buttery, flavorful, yum! The icing is just right and the filling is a wonderful mix of cream cheese and cinnamon with a light but not creamy texture.  There are other King Cake alternative approaches out there like cookies and cupcakes, but this hand pie takes a lot more expert craftsmanship and the results are really delicious.  Put a baby in it and call it a day.

You can get these at the Acadian Slice booth at the Market at the Horse Farm on Saturday mornings in Lafayette where they're $5, or you can contact them directly through their FB page: 

Perfect butter crust, just right frosting, wonderful cream cheese and cinnamon filling.
