We want you to cook with confidence. And we know just how daunting homemade pie can be. This class will help you conquer those fears. Just in time for the holiday season!
This hands-on class will teach you how to transform flour, butter, water, and a pinch of sugar and salt into a two simple and versatile doughs that can be used for sweet and savory pies and quiches. You will learn how to "read" your dough and know that it is the perfect consistency; not too dry, too wet, too short or overworked.
Perfect Pie Dough: Traditional
Perfect Pie Dough: Pate Sucree
(You will leave with your own doughs, wrapped and ready for future pies!)
Pumpkin Pie with Homemade Puree
Every guest will leave with their own perfect pie dough!
Please plan to have your evening meal before of after class, as our menu consists wholly of pie!
