The Art of Pies
For the past few years during the holiday season, I've gotten the opportunity to help out in the bakery. Although the ladies back there work quite a bit faster than I'm able to, they never forget to thank me for helping and always make me feel like part of their little family. I am continually astounded at how quickly they can whip out huge numbers of beautiful desserts. My specialty is cream pies - chocolate, banana and even coconut cream. Although assembling 50 or 60 of the same pie may seem like a bore, I get so lost in my creative groove that the hours end up flying by. It's almost like each pie is a little work of art for me.
