Amanda and her mom Kit have been baking together forever. And together they are the talents behind Tiny Pies, based in Austin. Their tiny pies are made from treasured family recipes with the highest quality natural ingredients, sourced from local farms whenever possible. They come in sweet (flavors like bourbon-buttermilk, cherry, pear-ginger, coconut cream and more) and savory (spinach-ricotta, potato-leek, etc.), they are made to be eaten without utensils, and they taste amazing hot or cold. We served ’em up in our I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags. You can serve ’em up on your dessert display table, as take-home favors, at your bridal shower, as part of your hotel-room amenity basket for visiting guests, or whenever you want a satisfying, wholesome, tastebud-tickling mouthful o’ yumminess, handcrafted right here in the great state of Texas. Order online or pop into Revival Market in the Heights, or Central Market on Westheimer, for a (tiny) taste of heaven.
