Auntie M’s Pie Co.

Owner Trudy Cottone has thirty years experience in the restaurant business. In the pie business since 2007, Trudy finds she enjoys baking the most, finding the rhythm of a bakery relaxing. Her hand-made pies have an all-butter crust and use only fresh ingredients, never frozen, and are made with free-range local eggs.  The natural juices of the fruit are used to help flavor the fruit pies, resulting in a pie that is not as sweet as most bakery pies, and which allows the taste of the fruit to really shine. Auntie M’s also offers savory pies (quiches), crustless pies, cobblers, and gluten- and sugar-free pies (by special order).
