Now it can be told: President Obama says one of the best-kept secrets at the White House is the pastry chef's to-die-for pie.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, Obama was asked to reveal a White House secret, and he dished about the pie.

Obama says the pastry chef makes "the best pie I have ever tasted, and that has caused big problems with Michelle and I."

"Whatever pie you like, he will make it and it will be the best pie you have ever eaten," Obama said. "And so, we are having to figure out how to resist ordering pie every night."

That's not the only confession from the president. He also acknowledged something that actually intimidates him: a bunch of tween girls.

Camp David sleepover The president talked about his family's plans for the July Fourth holiday and revealed that Camp David had been invaded by about 20 girls there to celebrate daughter Malia's 11th birthday on Saturday. "There are 24 double-X chromosomes up in Camp David as we speak," Obama said. "It's a little intimidating."

Obama also came clean about one of his pet peeves — the "shine police." The president says that before his interviews, aides "constantly want to powder my nose and forehead, and it's never enough."

He finds that — in his words — "quite irritating."
