I am a coffee person, drink it often, late at night(not a problem,) and prefer mine black. Like many, I enjoy a cup with my pie, and I do enjoy pie! The quest for a coffee pie to add to the menu began a while ago. Most coffee pies are based on super sweet liquor, wafer crusts, and are cream varieties. I wanted to offer pure coffee in a simple form without all the sugar, liquor, and heavy cream, thus the Cafe Crust was created. We incorporate fresh roasted Turkish ground(the finest) directly in our dough adding a bit of...

There is some things we enjoy now and then when we have a craving for a specific flavor. Not the case with our Fudge Pie. I always enjoy this taste(unadulterated chocolate,) this texture(gooey goodness,) this aroma(pure chocolate,) and while IT does not make a sound,after the first bite is taken a hum of enjoyment is the sound you'll hear, (something like mmmm.) Yes, I really do like chocolate and I suppose i am a purist when it comes down to it. We offer many variations on the Fudge Pie such as the Mint Melt-away, Rocky Road, Peppermint Fudge, and we...

Popping up through the blanket of snow outside my front door I can see the crocus and daffodils, there are robins all around, and the sun is out a bit longer every day. These signs of good things to come caused me to start on Spring baking and I am so happy to have a few Spring pies to post! The flavors for Spring are predominately fruit. Lemon Sponge is a soft texture that reminds me of a baked lemon pudding I enjoyed as a child. The zest and juice of fresh lemons is balanced by a moderate amount of...

Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word meaning Spring. During these forty days leading to the celebration of Easter many abstain from meat. We are happy to bring you pies that put a delicious new spin on the meatless meal. The Irish Catch, Shrimp Etouffe, and Jambalya pies bring exciting new flavors to your Lenten table. Spring is on the way so toss a light mixed green salad and enjoy a slice of these savory meatless entrees.
