Participants will learn techniques for making 3 different kinds of pie crust: classic flaky butter crust, a light vegetable shortening crust (vegan) and a rich French-style sucré dessert crust. Marchelle will lead the class through her unique variations of the following classic pies: apple, pecan and lemon meringue. Participants will each get to take home a 6″ pie of their choice, recipes as well as enjoy a slice of the delicious pies made in class.
