Pie is as American as the Fourth of July. Through those first lean and hungry years in New England, daring pioneer mothers contrived “pyes” out of a few simple foods at hand often experimenting as they went. The old expression “easy as pie” is now true. Over time, pastry chefs and cooks alike have worked out simplified methods. No guessing as to the amount of water, no chilling of the pastry, no long, laborious preparations for fillings. Today, there are pies for special occasions, pies from famous eating locations, and pies for special holidays.

On Tuesday, January 28, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., CSSC staff will share and demonstrate how to make their favorite pie recipes. Attendees will be able to sample from a variety of different pies made.

The class will take place at King Thiel Senior Community, 17 Elks Lane, with a $5 fee for members of THE CENTER at CSSC and $7 for not-yet-members and will include a light lunch. Space is limited and prepayment for the class is required. To make a reservation, please call Sharon Herald at 518-459-2857 ext. 302.
