Autumn sets the ideal aperture for pie making, allowing the sweetening fall produce to assist in the bittersweet transformation of the seasons. This class ensures that every sort of potential pie ingredient is put to the best use! And in this class everything taste like pie, even the drinks! There is a wide range of knowledge to obtain when it comes to preparing ideal autumn pies! From amplifying apple pies with pure cinnamon and bubbling Italian Prosecco to obtaining the background knowledge for preparing a traditional apple pie using the cross stitch top method, you will see the various designs of producing the highest quality of apple pies. You’ll discover how to draw upon fall sage’s greatest culinary virtues mingled with freshly prepared whipped cream and fall spices to further prepare fall desserts and then… use similar fall crust designs to cleverly assemble pockets, bars and tartlets that make you fall for fall! Fortifying pecans with bourbon in a fall bar, ensuring the flavor of ricotta with vanilla in a tartlet, you will be the reason for the warming of many an autumn!
