At OJ’s Midtown in friendly little Gillett, the bakers are pie artists who fill homemade crusts with every imaginable flavor of creamy custard — banana, coconut, peanut butter, sour cream raisin, chocolate and more — and smother the pies with whipped cream or meringue. Related to cream pies, and just as iconic as a Dairyland diner dessert, are tortes, which are not the fancy cakes of European fame, but chilled confections that typically start with a nut or cookie crust that’s layered first with cream cheese; pudding, gelatin, fruit or ice cream, then with whipped cream and finally with nuts or crushed cookies or candy. Yowza.
