Sweet and Savory Series: Hand Pies
May 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Does making a whole pie seem daunting? These small, imperfect hand pies make everyone feel like a professional baker. In this class we’ll learn how to make a delectable, flaky crust along with two delicious pie fillings: Blueberry, Lemon-Thyme; and Spinach and Feta. This is a hands-on class: you’ll make the fillings and get your hands in the dough. And you’ll take home two hand pies too!
