While pie is commonly recognized as one, if not the quintessential American dessert, historically it was not. In fact, pies or "pyes" were traditionally savory. The crust was used as an encasing for its contents. The approach was meant to mirror the effect of a clay pot. Thus the crust was essentially inedible—tragic!
It wasn't until the 1500s that sweet pies entered the arena. Nowadays, 'pie' is a term that's used rather loosely—fruit, meat, custard with a pastry base, sometimes a top. Regardless of your pie parameters, we invite you to Pie & Puff: an introductory class to flaky dough with Pastry Chef Michal Shelkowitz.
