Berry Delicious Fruit Pies

This class is being offered virtually and in-person. 

In this hands-on class, we’ll put the best of the season’s bounty to use in two fruit-laden, flaky pies. We’ll teach you how to make an all-butter double crust the Zingerman’s Bakehouse way (get ready to get your schmear on!). We’ll also cover lots of pie crust tips along the way, from how to successfully roll it out to how to crimp the edges for a beautiful pie. 

Jumbleberry Pie

This pie gets filled to the brim with a jumble of juicy berries—raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and cranberries—for a not too sweet, not too tart filling.

Simply Rhubarb Pie

We’ll stick with a simple filling of fresh rhubarb and a bit of sugar, using as little as possible so the tart-sweet flavor of the rhubarb really sings! (It’s true that we call this class Berry Delicious Fruit Pies, even though, botanically speaking, rhubarb is a vegetable. However, in our defense, in 1947, the U.S. Customs Court in Buffalo, NY ruled that rhubarb should be considered a fruit since it's used typically as a fruit would be!)

For some more rhubarb history, head to the Bakehouse's website and read:  "Simply Rhubarb Pie" and "Some 'Pie Plant' history."

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the two "berry delicious" fruit pies you made in class.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale

$60.00

A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
