Teeny Pies is a pie company that specializes in handmade, seasonal and occasionally whimsical pies. Teeny Lamothe, owner and baker, grew up baking pies alongside her mom and has spent the last few years turning her passion for all things pie into a successful small business. In the fall of 2011 Teeny started a self-created apprenticing tour (affectionately dubbed The Tour of Pie) around the country to learn anything and everything about the business of pie. Travelling to nine different bakeries over the course of a year, Teeny spent her time in borrowed kitchens learning the art of pie baking and small business owning from pie mentors all over the country. Stopping at High 5 Pie in Seattle, Emmy’s Organics in Ithaca, Petsi Pies in Cambridge, Sweet Sensations in Chicago, Pie Lab in Greensboro, Terry’s Famous Key Lime Pies in Davie, Pie Shop in Atlanta, I Heart Pies in L.A. and then a quick trip back home to Littleton to take a few lessons from the lady who taught her to make her very first pie, Teeny honed her craft and began to form a business plan.
Midway through the trip she caught the eye of a publishing house in New York City with her endlessly witty and delightful blog, teenypies.tumblr.com, and after lots of pie taste testing convinced them to let her write a cookbook! After finally settling down in D.C. Teeny spent a year creating and revising recipes and writing down her adventurous stories of being a pie-baking-vagabond. She finished the manuscript in a flurry of pie parties and new friends-in-pie and spent the next few months figuring out how and when to begin her newest venture of being a small business owner.

Teeny’s Tour of Pie: A Cookbook is a love letter to a celebrated dessert (arguably America’s favorite… what’s more American than apple pie?) from a young woman determined to take her education into her own hands, and learn more about baking than pastry school could offer. In one year, blogger and would-be baker Teeny Lamothe sent herself on a traveling apprenticeship throughout the United States, baking under the guidance of regional experts and in this debut book she shares the invaluable real-world know-how, and the recipes, these mentors taught her along the way.
