“Pies, pies, glorious pies! From sweet to savory, in a pan and even in a can, Lisa’s has the pie for you.” -Yelper Megan B.
If you’re traveling on US-31 through the northern part of Hamilton County, there’s a business worth a pit stop during your travels. Keep an eye out, because you might miss Lisa’s Pie Shop, located on the border of Hamilton and Tipton counties at 296th Street.
Since 1986, owner and head pie maker Lisa Sparks has been cooking up award-winning homemade pies, winning her countless national awards and enough blue ribbons to wallpaper her kitchen. Ironically, Lisa doesn’t care for pie and doesn’t eat her own creations. But trust us: these pies live up to the hype and accolades.
Lisa makes a signature Indiana pie, the sugar cream pie. This was originally made by Indiana settlers who used custard as a filling when fruit wasn’t available. Lisa makes all the classic fruit pies, but also specialties like butterscotch cream pie, gooseberry pie and caramel apple walnut. Fun fact: Lisa’s Pie Shop made a 2016 list of USA Today’s top destination pie shops in America, so she’s worth the drive.
Take your pie to go with the unique pie-in-a-jar. It’s exactly what it sounds like - crust and all, stuffed in a 4, 8 or 16 oz mason jar. Choose from black raspberry, apple, blueberry, cherry, peach or strawberry rhubarb. These are perfect if you want to sample a few different flavors without committing to a whole pie. Plus, they make great gifts and stocking stuffers.
Lisa’s bread and butter is pie, but she makes other baked goods, too. On her menu you’ll find cookies, quiches, pumpkin rolls and breads like pineapple zucchini.
