Lauretta Jean Pies

19 Nov

Dear friend and former mistress of pie at Random Order Kate McMillan has the cure-all for your Thanksgiving pie needs:

Lauretta Jean Pies.

Out of the Tastebud kitchen she is baking up a storm and these are pies like no other. If your looking for an out of body experience (which I think we may all be after feast time), than look no further, Lauretta Jean has got it. Crispy, flaky, buttery crust and 4 to die for flavors, you may even want a little private time for you and your pie. Pies are $30, including the glass dish. Pre-order by Sunday, Nov. 20 (503-890-6172 or Pick up by Wednesday at Tastebud.

Lauretta’s menu:

Heirloom Apple – with dark rum and vanilla bean. I use heirloom apples from Old World Apples. She has a little booth at the (farmer’s) market and her farm is in southwest Washington. This pie is the quintessential apple pie. I use several types of apples it is an amazing combination of tart and sweet. Of course, housed inside a double all butter pastry crust.

Ellis Bros. Pecan – gingery pecans baked with bourbon and brown butter and finished with fluer de sel. Sweet and salty how could you go wrong? The pecans are from a farm in Georgia, Ellis Bros, they are this years crop of nuts. They are huge and buttery unlike any pecan i’ve seen at the grocery store.

Pumpkin – spicy pumpkin custard over a ginger pecan layer all inside a flakey butter pastry crust. Serve this one with whip cream and it’s good night Irene!

And finally chocolate cream – I use three types of chocolate from Vintage Plantations (a sustainable harvest chocolate purveyor) topped with fresh whipped cream and chocolate curls.
