Pie Camp July 2012!

Four days of non-stop Pie Making! What could be better?

Well, maybe you can think of a few things but for this pie maker, the 1st Art of the Pie Camp, held July 27-30 in Port Angeles, WA, was a dream come true.

Imagine seven people passionate about pie coming together to make, bake, eat, walk, talk, laugh and cry. We did it all.

Even though it has been not quite a week since our last pies “sizzle-whumped” their way out of my oven, still lingering in Pie Cottage is the anticipation and exhilaration each time we rolled out a dough, constructed a pie, baked it off and then ooh’d and ah’d  as we bowed down to open the oven door and let them take center stage.

Here are just a few photos from our days together.
