Because I don't use preservatives in my cookies, they are best eaten within a few days of baking. Ask me about those that have a longer shelf life.

Cookies are are PIES!

This holiday season, All About A Cookie is selling PREMIUM PIES!

What better way to spoil friends and family (and yourself!) than with homemade pies.  Let me do the work for you.  Each pie is made from fresh ingredients, not canned or processed.  These pies are lovingly made to be the best!

Choose from the following list:

Dutch Apple Pie:  Made with 3 pounds of apples picked from orchards in the Virginia mountains, this pie is loaded tight with apples.  Topped with a crunchy streusel topping, it’s definitely an exquisite classic.

Pumpkin:  Pure pumpkin puree, brown sugar, heritage spice blend and real cream go into this seasonal classic.  No canned milk or corn syrup like the store-made pies.  This is sure to be your new holiday favorite!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie:  Looking to take it up a notch?  Let’s take a gingersnap crust, fill it with creamy cheesecake and top it with a pumpkin pie filling.  This very rich pie is lusciously sinful.

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie:  The perfect blend of two classics!  A whole pound of pecans goes into this sweet concoction.  Made with fresh roasted sweet potatoes, fragrant cinnamon and vanilla, your taste buds will beg for more!

All pies are approximately 9” in diameter. 

Dutch Apple Pie:                     $22

Apple of my eye

Last apples of the season.  I spent Saturday filling my bag with a variety from the trees at a nearby orchard.  I've got big plans for these.  I hope they make it to the holidays; I say that because it's hard to not just munch them out of hand.  I've been up to the orchard three times this season.  I tried to pick every type available:  honeycrisp, fuji, cameo, shizuka, mutsu crispin, jonagold, idared, braeburn, pink lady, gold rush, golden russet, reinette zabergau, fireside.  So many different flavors and textures!  I just couldn't pick a favorite.

My latest haul
Aside from just eating them, I've made some goodies.  Apple spice cake, sauteed apples, apple cobbler, fresh apple scones, apple pie... yum yum YUM!  The kitchen definitely has the lingering cinnamon spice smell that I've come to associate with the Autumn season.
