Berry Delicious Fruit Pies

An overhead shot of a slice of Rhubarb Pie on a white plate.
In this hands-on class, we’ll put the best of the season’s bounty to use in two fruit-laden, flaky pies. We’ll teach you how to make an all-butter double crust the Zingerman’s Bakehouse way (get ready to get your schmear on!). We’ll also cover lots of pie crust tips along the way, from how to successfully roll it out to how to crimp the edges for a beautiful pie. 

Jumbleberry Pie

This pie gets filled to the brim with a jumble of juicy berries—raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and cranberries—for a not too sweet, not too tart filling.

Simply Rhubarb Pie

We’ll stick with a simple filling of fresh rhubarb and a bit of sugar, using as little as possible so the tart-sweet flavor of the rhubarb really sings! (It’s true that we call this class Berry Delicious Fruit Pies, even though, botanically speaking, rhubarb is a vegetable. However, in our defense, in 1947, the U.S. Customs Court in Buffalo, NY ruled that rhubarb should be considered a fruit since it's used typically as a fruit would be!)

For some more rhubarb history, head to the Bakehouse's website and read:  "The Bakehouse's Simply Rhubarb Pie".

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the two "berry delicious" fruit pies you made in class. 

In-Person: We'll end the in-person class with a pie tasting and you'll go home with some great coupons.
