2 Moms & A Mixer

 

hand piesBack in July, I posted on hand pies, those little pillows of dough folded over a sweet filling. (Of course, you could make a savory version instead.)  These were the ones I made, with a little dark chocolate and orange marmalade inside. Heaven on earth.

Well, I guess hand pies are having their moment because I notice two of our local pastry queens, Nicole Bergman of Simply Nic’s Artisanal Shortbread and Jen Carson of Jen’s Cakes and Pastries, who together comprise 2 Moms & A Mixer, are including hand pies in their October 21 class at the West Windsor Adult School:

“Pies! Celebrating NJ’s Autumn Bounty” Class with ‘2 Moms & A Mixer’ – West Windsor Adult School, Cafeteria, High School North, 90 Grovers Mill Road, West Windsor, October 21, 7-9pm, $45

Make a simple homemade all-butter pie crust and use it 3 ways: in a traditional 9-inch fruit pie, a rustic free form tart and hand pies. Students will prepare the 3 types of pies and bring home a piping hot, delicious homemade treat with locally-sourced fruit. For more info, download the WW Adult School PDF Catalog here or call: 609-716-5030 x5034.

Check out their website for all the other great classes they have coming up; most of them are taught at The Cooperative Kitchen up on Route 206 just north of downtown Princeton, and you will be in good shape for holiday baking projects!
