Frequently Asked Questions


1Do you bake every day?
Every day during our store hours, come by and see us!
2What is the shelf-life of your pies?
We use no preservatives in our pies. Typically, our fruit pies and rich and gooey pies can easily stay at room temp for two days before being cut into. We suggest that you store leftover pie in the refrigerator once it’s been sliced and eaten. All of our cream pies are refrigerated and have a shelf-life for up to one week.
3What is the difference between your Apple Pie flavors?
We have three Apple Pie variations. Ol’ Fashioned Apple is the most traditional and includes a mix of sweet and tart apples; a ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg spice blend;and lattice top. Apple Crumb uses mostly sweet apples coated with cinnamon and topped with a delicious crumble. Auntie Nae’s Apple starts with tart apples, a dusting of cinnamon, lattice top, and features a homemade caramel sauce that is poured over the pie which bakes into the apples and candy-coats the crust.
4What is a Chess Pie?
Truly a favorite in the South. Chess Pie is made with an egg, butter and sugar base. We make three variations: Lemon (lemon juice and lemon zest for a sweet-tart finish), Coconut (flaked coconut and moist filling sure to please any coconut lover), and Chocolate (intensely decadent – a rich Dutch chocolate melted into a smooth filling).
5How do I heat my pie?
Our pies are fully baked so reheating your pie can be tricky as any additional baking can further break down the fully baked filling. The best way to heat your pie is to microwave a slice for a few seconds until warm. This will heat your pie without cooking it additionally.
6Why do you sell out?
We are a small batch bakery with a passion for creating pies that are handmade and from scratch. We would love to have a pie for every customer who walks into our shop, but some days are not long enough to make this happen. We are happy to take orders in advance which is the best way to get exactly what you want when you’d like it.
7Do you ship your pies?
We do not. Of course, we’d love to see our pies being shipped all over the country at some point in time, but we are focusing on local right now.
