Prep Work Details

Pre-prep for hand pie class Hello! There are a few things that will help the class move along seamlessly: Making the filling up ahead is incredibly helpful. Cooled fillings work best with the dough. If you decide to just make one filling, that is perfectly fine. Also, feel free to make ANY FILLING you want. The recipes supplied are mere suggestions. If you do not have time to make a filling, then purchasing a jam or a premade compote works just as well. The making of the dough, rolling it out, cutting and baking are truly the "learning" moments of the class. Have all your ingredients measured out to make the dough. It is also extremely helpful to have the butter at room temperature before we boil it. If you are using vegetable shortening (aka Crisco), then you will need ~ ¾-1 cup of water. I look forward to baking with you. I will be on 10 minutes prior to class to answer any questions. Cheers, Lisa

I did not expect these pies to be so easy, practical, or delicious! And Chef Lisa did a superb job. She kept the class lively, informative, and fun.

I took Lisa's macarons class a few weeks ago and loved her teaching and cooking style so much that I signed up for the hand pies class. What a great experience, and now I have a go-to short crusty recipe that I'll use again and again.
