Do you love custards and puddings?Love buttery pie crusts? Eat whipped cream by the spoonful?Yes! Yes! and Yes! Then this class is for you.

Join us to make two of our Bakehouse's best: chocolate cream pie and coconut cream pie. We’ll also demonstrate our popular key lime pie. Since it’s baked it’s not really a “cream” pie, but it’s definitely creamy and delicious.

In this class, you'll learn how to make a buttery and flaky pie crust from scratch (no shortening allowed!), how to roll and bake the crust, and how to make the chocolate cream pie filling and coconut cream pie filling from scratch. For the key lime pie demonstration, we'll show you how to make a buttery graham cracker crust, and the rich, tart filling. We'll also demonstrate fresh whipped cream to top the pies.
