Learn the Secrets of Making Delectable Pies at Nibblin’s “Day in the Kitchen: Pies” Classes

Pies came to America with the first English settlers and over the last two centuries, we’ve adopted this versatile dish as a centerpiece of American cuisine. With endless varieties and flavors, we can enjoy pies at any meal and for any occasion, but most of us couldn’t imagine the holidays without our favorite pie.

If you’re planning to bake some pumpkin, apple or pecan delicacies this year, come join us for a day-long pie-making class in the Nibblin’s kitchen.

Day in the Kitchen: Pies

Date: Wednesday, November 27

Start time: 10 am

Length: about 5 hours

Unlike shorter class formats, the “Day in the Kitchen” classes give you time to see the pie process from beginning to end, including making dough from scratch, learning new, inventive filling recipes and adding that special touch with traditional and decorative crust toppings.

You’ll leave class with three full-size pies for your Thanksgiving feast!

Because this is an intensive, hands-on class, it’s limited to only 6 students.

Bring 3 pie plates or tart tins to make your pies in. We’ll be learning how to make

  • Easy, flaky, butter pie crust

  • Quiche

  • Pumpkin pie

  • Sweet potato pie

  • Bourbon pecan pie

  • Coconut cream pie

  • Banana cream pie

  • Baked chocolate tart

All students also receive a 10% discount on Nibblin’s in-store purchases on class day.

If you love hearing friends and family rave about your desserts, come join our class and learn the pie-making secrets that will make you a holiday legend.

Did you know?

  • The ancient Egyptians and Romans made pies. But the crust was made of inedible reeds, which served to keep the filling together.

  • Around the 12th century, English folk called the pie crust “coffyn,” and they often make pies out of fowl, such as chicken or duck. They would bake the bird whole inside the pie, leaving the legs poking out as convenient handles.

  • Queen Elizabeth I is credited with making the first cherry pie.

  • During the American Revolution, colonists dropped the term “coffyn” and adopted the term “crust,” which we still use today.

  • The first Thanksgiving probably didn’t include any pies, and colonists ate mainly pies with meat fillings. Sweet pies become popular in the 19th century.

  • The first pumpkin pie recipe is from 1675, but the dish didn’t become a favorite until the early 1800s.
