Let’s call her Spicy Apple. Last night I went to a pie making class at A la Mode pies (I guess I’m very into pie lately) and oh it was so much fun:) We learned to make three pies: a marionberry, a spiced apple pie, and a peach. Chris, the owner taught the class and it was obvious that he is totally passionate about pies. I learned so many things from him, like: did you know that Washington has the best peaches in the world? Or that if the apple’s name has delicious in it, it’s an eating apple and not a pie apple. And a little egg-wash and some scraps make perfect pie band-aids. These are life lessons one can only learn in a cooking/baking class and he made it so humorous and fun. And although my pie was not the prettiest, (there’s a little flair on the bottom that I would like to eliminate in my next one) I was oh so proud. I totally recommend this class if you think you’ll make a pie in the next couple months: hello holiday season! This would be a perfect activity for a moms’ night:) And yes, we also sampled nearly every pie in the case.
(PS if you don’t think you want to make pies, this place DELIVERS. Cue swooning now.)
