One of my favorite pies (although honestly, they’re all my favorites) can now be found on my pie table! I am currently making a Strawberry Rhubarb pie that uses Amber Oaks Orchards Organic rhubarb and locally sourced pesticide free strawberries. I add orange zest and pure vanilla to wrap this pie up into a bouquet of summer sweetness. A little tangy, a little tart, a little sweet and totally delicious! And before you tell me that you don’t like rhubarb, try a slice. I promise you will change your opinion of this underrated fruit! *Fun Fact* Rhubarb is considered a vegetable in other countries but in 1947 the United States decided to classify it as a fruit because vegetables have a higher tariff. The things you can learn from wikipedia!
Have you ever tried making peach pie? Its such a hassle! The blanching, shocking, peeling, slicing and dressing the peaches can exhaust even the most ambitious baker, which is why you are in luck! Little Ladybug Bakery is doing all that work for you! I’m sourcing my peaches through different farms found at the Marin Civic Center famers market to bring you the tastiest peach pies in town, maybe the world! To highlighting the delicate, sweet peach flavor I toss the fruit with cinnamon, nutmeg and just a little bit of sugar. Tasting this pie is going to make you feel that summer is already here. Buy a whole pie and impress your friends forever. (p.s. aren’t my red clogs just the cutest?!)
