You will have your choice of making either the Art of the Pie all butter dough, or a butter and leaf lard dough. Then we’ll make a delicious fruit filling. Finally we’ll roll out the doughs and make and bake our free form crostatas, and enjoy some tasty treats, too. You’ll go home with four freshly baked crostatas and enough dough to make four more at home.
NEW! Pie Cottage Retreat Just for Us: A Special Women’s Weekend
Friday October 20 through Sunday October 22
Come join me for a special women’s weekend. Unwind from busy days and experience life in the slow lane at Pie Cottage. Each morning you’ll join me at Pie Cottage and enjoy a homemade breakfast. Then the day will unfold before us. We’ll talk, share, laugh, and cook together. If you feel like taking a walk, knitting, or cuddling up in front of the wood stove with a book, that’s just fine, too.
This special women’s retreat has room for just four.
Retreat begins on Friday morning and concludes on Sunday afternoon after brunch.
All meals are included.
Lodging is on your own. Here are some suggestions.

To start things off, we’ll gather on Friday evening to meet other pie makers from across the country and enjoy a freshly baked pie made by Kate.
Meet Sweet Gretapie and Mr Fez, too!
On Saturday morning we will make dough and a savory chicken pot pie filling for our lunch. Your afternoon is free to see the sites and enjoy the events on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, take a walk, or knit for a spell, or maybe even a nap, or have another baking session on whatever you would like to learn! Tarte Tatin, hand pies? The kitchen is open for creative endeavors! After supper on your own, you’ll return to Pie Cottage for pie stories, laughter and a “Saturday Night at the Movies” viewing of Waitress or A Few Good Pie Places with popcorn and cocoa.
Sunday morning we’ll make and bake fresh fruit pies to take home.
Also included is a signed copy of ART OF THE PIE: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO HOMEMADE CRUSTS, FILLINGS, AND LIFE
