Years ago, Derek Kaplan was slinging personal-size key lime pies outside Coconut Grove's now-shuttered pizzeria Slice N Ice. Fast-forward to today, and he has become Miami's foremost sultan of sweets, with a Wynwood storefront. He now slings Panther Coffee alongside pecan pies, fresh-baked cookies, and ice-cream sandwiches filled with frozen treats from Calle Ocho's Azucar. Kaplan's pièce de résistance is his crack pie, dusted with a thick layer of powdered sugar. The heart of the addictive treat is a thick, sticky layer of sweet salted caramel. But the magic lies in the space where the crust and filling come together in a gooey, savory, otherworldly concoction that sticks to your teeth and melts in your mouth at the same time.
