"The lightest, flakiest crust imaginable!"
Do you remember when almost everyone's mom or grandma baked pies? Picture a homemade apple pie cooling on the window sill, makes you feel good doesn't it? I'll bet you can almost smell it.
My mom's specialty was peach pie, and with 5 kids in the family she made a lot of them! Funny, we rarely had a traditional round pie. My mom always used a lasagna pan piled high with fruit and a single layer of crust on top. She brushed the tops with milk and tossed on a sprinkle of sugar. I still use mom's recipe and my pies turn out fabulous and flaky every time.
Starting out in a cozy farmhouse kitchen in Richmond, The Little Fruit Pie Company has grown to include custom orders, frozen pies, event catering and now wedding pies but fresh fruit pies are still the specialty.
I bake mostly when fruit is in season; as soon as you can pick BC strawberries in June thru to Thanksgiving. Custom orders are available in the winter when the seasonal markets are closed. A wide variety of pies are available fresh baked every weekend in the market at Richmond Country Farms, Steveston Highway at #99, or in the freezer from April till December. Also fresh baked pies are available at the Backroads Country market in Tsawwassen on weekends starting in July.
I've been baking pies for more than 30 years and I'm still thrilled when I hear how much people enjoy them.
