Helping You Fake it for Thanksgiving

Butterscotch Pecan Pie

I’m just trying to do my part, here. I would hate for any of my Charlottesville community members to have to eat store-bought or refrigerated, pre-made pie crust (gasp!) for Thanksgiving.

I think I have it in me to make four extra pies between now and Turkey Day. I need to recoup the costs and make up for the time so I’m going to sell all four pies to the first interested party/parties. I need this to be a Charlottesville-only offer (I can deliver  a couple – short distances, but would love for pies to be picked up, too.)

I made this offer on my Facebook page and then via Twitter where my friend John Feminella said this:

Isn’t that just the coolest?

I’m offering to bake you a wonderful pie (pumpkin, butterscotch pecan, pecan, cran-raspberry or any special request you might have) and sell it to you for a bargain price in a glass dish so NO ONE WILL KNOW YOU DIDN’T MAKE IT YOURSELF and John will donate half — HALF — of the amount sold to charity.

Pie. Charity. Faking it.

Let’s hear it for John! And Pie!

So let me know  in the comments if you want a pie (seriously — I’m asking for $30 each). And if this offer gets taken up quite quickly, I may be convinced to make more than four (especially because the more I sell, the more John gives to charity.)

Now.

Who wants pie?

    Are you kidding? I don’t see any takers yet! I will take 2 if the offer still stands. Name your price, you pick the 2 types, and I’ll pick up at your house whenever is convenient that week!

    Let me know,

    SOLD — thank you Barb! (Yes, I’m surprised they haven’t sold out yet, too) I’ll make sure John knows he’ll be making a donation!

    Hmmm. Wonder if I can move my family to Charlottesville in time for Thanksgiving…

    By the way, love this idea, especially with the charity angle. An awesome example of a simple way of putting others first.
