Baking Pies a Plenty

Every baker should know how to make a pie crust. You never stood on a chair to help Grandma bake a pie? You don’t get many second chances in life, but here’s your opportunity to learn how she did it.

In this class, we’ll deliver the techniques of how to make a pie crust the Zingerman's way—creating a flaky crust with butter, and another crust using lard and butter (no shortening allowed!).  We'll teach you how to make the dough by hand, successfully roll it out, show you what par-baking a crust is, and how to crimp the edges to make your pies look beautiful. Pie flavors for this class vary by season (Apr-Sept: cherry and seasonal fruit, Oct-Mar: apple and pecan). Roll up your sleeves and join in the fun so you can tell all your friends you learned how to make a pie crust.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to make pie crust at home, two 10-inch pies, and great coupons.

*We're sorry. Our repeat class discount does not apply to November Thanksgiving pie classes. 

What our guests have to say about this class:

I thought I knew plenty about pie crust and was hoping for more confidence and consistency. I learned more than I could've ever imagined. Encouraging, no-judgment environment, knowledgable teachers, great value. —Josh B.

I am so much more confident and I can't wait to try these crusts at home. First time in 100 years that I made a crust that fit the pan, was delicious, and didn't come from a box. —Lee Anne S.

Have long feared the pie, even though I made okay ones. Techniques=confidence=more pies. My friends will thank you. —Susan L.
