You make it fresh and delicious!
When I developed Elizabeth Jean's homemade pie kits, I knew people had better things to do with their time than spend hours in the kitchen. I came up with a quick, easy way to turn the chore of pie-making into a rewarding, time-saving experience.
Planting the Seed
When the idea first came to me, it was not about starting a business – it was about "how in the world am I going to make dinner – and apple pies for dessert?"
My nephew was being deployed to Iraq and I was hosting his farewell dinner. At the last minute my husband suggested I bake apple pies for dessert. I had dinner under control but the pies took me by surprise. I was desperate! I rushed out to the market for ingredients, and on the way home I found myself wishing the preparation was already done.
That idea grew into a hobby – making "pie kits" for friends and family – that grew into a passion – as I experimented with proportions, spices and baking times to create the perfect pie – that grew into believing this product should be on every grocery store shelf in the country.
All the Taste – Without the Work!
I love pies, and have been making them for over 25 years, but I don't love the time it used to take to prepare them. That's where Elizabeth Jean's Pie Kits come in: I start with my own time-tested recipes and include the same high-quality ingredients I use in my homemade pies.
I have also included a pop-up timer that lets you know the exact moment the apples are tender and the crust is crisp – for perfect pies every time that win raves over frozen or bakery pies. And I put it all together in one easy-to-assemble package so you can enjoy mouth-watering, home-baked apple pies without all the fuss.
