The result of her total-pie-immersion is a completely fresh take on the classics. Complete with regional specialties (the Derby, the Shoofly, the Key lime) and lore, personal musings and revelations, gorgeous food photography and intimate Instagram-style snapshots, TEENY’S TOUR OF PIE has more than 55 recipes for traditional and original pies and more than 10 crusts.
Now, an official Lady Pie Baker, Teeny runs her Washington, D.C. based wholesale and custom pie-baking business, with the motto “Eat pie. Be happy. Eat more pie.” Among the clever tricks up her sleeves, Teeny makes cookies from her crust! Pies have long held North Americans in their thrall. Pies are traditional, homespun, and speak of a simpler time—of blue-ribbon bake-offs and country fairs, of hot pies cooling on a breezy windowsill. These nostalgic, comforting desserts—and their savory kin—never go out of style.
Teeny Lamothe has written about pie for—and been featured in—the Huffington Post, Relish, CakeSpy, Refinery29, The Kitchn, and other print and online publications. She lives in Washington, D.C., where she runs her wholesale and custom pie-baking business, Teeny Pies, with the motto "eat pie. be happy. eat more pie."
