Sweet as Pie
The first day of fall means we’re gearing up for all things pumpkin! You won’t hear a complaint about that around here. At Stoltzfus Meats, we love our pumpkin treats: pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie… you get the picture! We especially love them when they’re freshly made from our bakery.
This week, we wanted to let the star of the season be the star of the blog and highlight our pumpkin pies, as well as our incredible bakery department in Intercourse, PA!
While pumpkin pie is delicious, I think we can admit that not all pumpkin pies are created equal. There is just nothing quite like a homemade pumpkin pie, especially in comparison to store bought products, but pies can be temperamental and sometimes tricky to make. Enter, Stoltzfus Meats!
We can offer you the best of both worlds when it comes to pie: homemade taste to serve your family and friends, but no time spent stressing over making the perfect pie.
Our pumpkin pie filling is made in small batches that will make somewhere between eleven to fourteen pies. The pies are baked three to five at a time, depending on customer demand. What this means for you is pies that are fresh and have that homemade quality.
Here's a sneak peek into the pie-making process from first pour to finished product:
First, the filling is poured into the pie crusts until they’re filled to the top so that you get the most yumminess out of each bite.
After the filling is poured into the crust, each pie is individually dusted with cinnamon by one of our bakers to add a nice little touch. Isn’t that just sweet as pie?! 😉
Next, the pies are baked in small batches until the crusts are perfectly browned and the filling has set.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret… Honestly, I’m not much of a pumpkin pie person. If I was given a few options of pie flavors, I would not pick pumpkin pie first. With that being said, I felt the need to do a taste test and all I can say is: yum! Stoltzfus Meats pumpkin pies truly have the perfect balance of sweetness and spice. It’s just a perfect little (or big) slice of autumn!
Our pumpkin pies won’t be on the shelves until October, but we’re so excited about them that we couldn’t wait to talk about them. So, when you visit the store in Intercourse next month, be sure to check our selection of pies! Our pumpkin pies are sold whole, but can also be conveniently purchased as half of a pie or in individual slices. These are perfect options for smaller households or if you just want a nice snack, but don’t worry, we won’t judge if you just want to eat the whole pie!
