Today, January 23, is national pie day.
The first pies were created by the Egyptians who wrapped honey inside oats. Later the Romans realized that pies were perfect for travel. Some of the pies they took with them on journeys were goat-cheese, and honey. The original fruit pie appeared around 1500, during the time of Queen Elizabeth I. Thanks to the Pilgrims who brought their recipies with them to America, berrie, pumpkin, and other dessert pies have become an all American favorite.
What better way of celebrating national pie day, then by eating some mini apple pies, or any pie for that matter.
We had the privileged to launch thirteen at Warner Avenue's Holiday Boutique yesterday November 29! We had success beyond what we ever could have thought! We arrived and set up around 7am and were up and runing by 7:30am. The kids had recess from 10-10:30 and in those quick 30 minutes we completely sold out, and the boutique lasted untill 4! After the recess rush, I ran back home and decided to start baking again, while I had someone man my station. I came back to the school at 1:15 and sold out once again very quickly! It was a fun, exciting, an all around great day! Thank you to all of those who came out and supported us. You can see some of the photos from the boutique under the "PHOTOS" tab under "LAUNCH."
Looking foward to baking for you soon!
