November 20

 

Come join the team from Granny's Pie Factory for a demo to learn how to make an apple pie!  Apple pie is the quintessential American classic, perfect for fall, and the standard by which to judge a pie maker. 
We will take you through the entire process from start to finish, from making the dough, to preparing the filling, to rolling the dough, assembling the pie and baking it to a golden-brown finish.  

At Granny's we have over 30 years of experience making pies, let us share that our expertise with you!

Seating is limited, so sign up early! 11:30-12:30
