Finally! I just now managed to get these pie pics uploaded to the website (after some technical difficulties). All fillings and crust are from scratch – no sugary canned fillings or frozen dough here 🙂
All pies can be made vegan or gluten free.
Beautiful anniversary cake I did this weekend in Elgin. I absolutely love the orchids the customer bought.
It’s been a busy week baking and decorating over 6 dozen holiday cookies! I will be making cookies every week this month and will keep everyone updated on the new designs as I complete them.
Whew! After working a full day at my normal job I managed to come home and bake cookies, brownies, and a peach pie. I even made dinner, if you call cooking Chicken Helper making dinner.
Working with gluten-free items can be a difficult task, and chosing the correct flour substitute makes all the difference. Recently I found out that gluten-free flour blends with pea or legume flour can be quite gritty. They tend to be cheaper, but I do not recommend using them.
#KingArthurFlour makes a gluten-free flour blend that is a bit more pricy, but it’s texture and taste are extremely close to wheat flour. Also makes wonderful, flaky pie dough. #PecanPie #GlutenFree #BastianBakedGoods
