Here is my best explanation:

'from the bakery?' is the definition.

I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'torte from potteries' is the subsidiary indication.

'from' indicates named letters should be taken away.

'potteries' with 'torte' taken out is 'pies'.

'or' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for pies that I've seen before include "tarts", "Tarts", "Pastry snacks", "See 1 Across", "Dishes baked in pastry-lining", "Pastry-topped puddings", "Pastry dishes", "Pastry crusts with fillings", "food" and "Pastries".)
