Pie making is a skill every cook should master, especially with the Pie Social coming up. A perfect pie is something that just about every baker wants to be able to put together. Pie is a great dish with an unbeatable combination of flaky dough and rich filling – whether you’re making luscious fruit pies or hearty savory pies.

Sign up for Pie Camp, Saturday, May 13, from 1 to 3pm, and leave with the know-how to make Pies for your family and friends all year long.

Two-hour session includes hands-on instruction from the Pie Lady, Phyllis Skalko, recipe with tips, pre- measured ingredients with all the tools you will need, and a glass Pie Pan. There is time for personal discussion, and at the end of class we will enjoy a slice of cherry pie made by two of our finest Dunsmuir Pie Makers; Vonnie Carr and Irene Wilson.

We will demystify the art of making dough, help you become a whiz at rolling out the crusts, and you will leave with your confidence so buoyed you will never, ever buy that pre-made stuff from the store again!   Remember, pie is not about perfection!  Pie should look homemade. So let’s just go for it and have fun.

There will be another pie class on April 29, making apple pies. Each class is limited to 10 students so that you will get lots of personal instruction from our Pie Camp Team.  

Class fee is $40 and includes all pie making materials, including a vintage glass pie plate for you to keep and you will go home with your very own CHERRY PIE ready to bake.  

Call the “Pie Lady”, Phyllis Skalko at 530-235-0839 to register – with only 10 places, class will fill quickly! You can send your check for the Registration Fee of $40 made out to Phyllis Skalko.  Mail to Phyllis Skalko, 406 S 2nd Street, Dunsmuir, CA 96025.   Please include your name, address and phone number and which date you are requesting.  A registration confirmation card will be mailed to you by return mail.
