pies

"Easy as pie" is the biggest misnomer in the baking world. You understand this if you've ever attempted to make a pie.  There are so many variables and ways for it to go wrong. Fat temperature and texture, water temperature and amount, amount of handling, sweetness of fruit, amounts of starch. With pies, it's all about the feel. When made correctly, a pie is the most delightful dessert. 

Gluten-Free diets have been hugely popular for the past several years. Is this a trend or is it here to stay?   It's hard to say just yet, but the demand for gluten-free everything seems to be growing.  We were ready for the gluten-free rush, thanks to our customers who have been asking for it for years.  Eugenians are usually ahead of the curve for restricted diets. We're talking raw, vegan, locavores and fruitarians. We live in a city where, long before mainstream caught on, it has been verboten to eat corn syrup, GMO's and anything from China.
