Class Experience

Students will: 
• Learn to make homemade pie crusts and four different homemade pies. 
• Share experiences with one another through the classroom. 
• Build recipe files and increase confidence in cooking and baking. 
Cooking and baking are some of my favorite hobbies and I enjoy spending time making a variety of foods for my family. During the fall and winter seasons, I usually make 20-30 pies for friends and family. I have been cooking and baking for my family for over 25 years. However, my hobby truly began when I was a young girl and I wanted to make and create different foods and dishes in the kitchen. I am excited to share this wonderful hobby with young chefs and create an excitement in them as well. 
Our class has the best kind of homework! Make the pies and then enjoy them!  :)

A flex class is fun and convenient because learners can make the pies, as well as complete the assignments on their own time, but these classes are more fun when learners also interact with one another. Each week I want the learners to think about the recipe and the ingredients we are using. Why are these ingredients an essential part of that particular recipe? What ingredients could you add to change the recipe? 

I will ask questions about the pies, recipes, or pie-making process at the end of each week. Students should be prepared to share successes, as well things that might have been a struggle as they learned something new. Students will also be expected to share a photo with the class of at least 3 of their pies.

In the last couple weeks of the class, I would like everyone to share a favorite recipe with the class. This can be a recipe that you have created or one you have found from somewhere/someone else. This gives the students a chance to think about their recipes and find one they would like to share. 
The supply lists and ingredients will change each week, depending on the pies and crusts we are making, and will be sent out on Saturdays so learners can plan and prepare for the upcoming week. As with all of my cooking and baking classes, I will include photos of the supplies and ingredients we will be using to make it easier for students to see and gather what they need for class. Most of the classes will require these supplies: Pastry Cutter/Blender 2 Medium-Large Mixing Bowls 9" Pie Dish (Other sizes are okay, but the filling we will make will typically fill a 9" pie dish. If you are using a larger pie dish, please let me know and I may be able to adjust the recipe for you.) Rubber spatula Wooden spoon Measuring spoons and cups Regular/butter knife Floured counter or board
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents are strongly encouraged to assist the learner in the kitchen. Learners will be using the stove and/or the oven each week. Students will also be using a knife during different lessons to cut fruit and pie crust.  

Please check ingredients for possible allergies and be aware that some of these recipes use nuts, gluten, chocolate and milk products. If you have an allergy concern, please message me regarding possible ingredients that may be a concern for your learner. 

Parental supervision is encouraged.
