Chocolate Lavender and Orange Buttercream

Happy New Year, y'all!!

Yes, it is your long lost Cutie Pie maker, only so because we've been up to our
elbows in work over here and are now getting the email/blog postings back up.

That said, let's get to the pies of the week! This week I'm serving up an
exciting pie, a flavor so old it is new again, Chocolate Lavender! Yes, not only
can you eat lavender, but it is down right good. This stuff isn't just for soap,

We start off with a rich, dark chocolate and meld it with the most beautiful
organic, culinary quality lavender. The result is something that is sweet and
chocolaty on the front end with only a hint of that warm fragrant lavender, but
builds into a heady taste that almost overwhelms, but not quite. Cooking with
lavender has been a long time favorite of mine, and I thought y'all would
appreciate something completely different and unexpected.

Our other flavor this week is one I've done before, but keep getting requests
for. I can't hold back when there's so many requests, so I've brought back the
Orange Buttercream Dream. For those of y'all that haven't had it yet, think a
Creamsicle in a pie. This lovely little custard will warm you up from the inside
on a cold winter day, thoughts of the tropics float through your head and
suddenly it doesn't feel like snow at all.

Both these pies can be done gluten free, but neither are lactose intolerant,
sugar free or vegan. I'm sorry.

If you have a special request for any pie, just give a shout or email and we'll
get whatever you like to you. All orders for delivery must be in by Wednesday
the 14th and delivery is at your convenience.

You can also come to the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket for the Winter
Market. That is every Saturday (tomorrow) between 11-2. Lots of great vendors
and excellent products. And pie! Check out the website for directions and

Finally, let me say, my hope is everyone had an excellent holiday a great New
Year and wish for an even better year to come. That has been my own personal
holiday wish for everyone and the only thing I wanted this year. And also to
thank all y'all for making this a great holiday season for Cutie Pies. I'm
truly, completely grateful.
