Using the same ingredients and recipe that her mother and grandmother used, Kara Romanik took a family favorite and turned it into a fully baked business plan, bringing handheld, pocket-size pies to home kitchens throughout the country. Mamie’s Pies even won the stamp of approval from Oprah! These are the perfect freezer staple to have on hand when your sweet tooth hits you — just bake or air fry for a hot, perfectly crisp pie in minutes. Flash-frozen at peak freshness and free of preservatives, Mamie’s Pies bring the delicious flavors of wild Maine blueberries, crisp McIntosh apples or tart Michigan cherries to the forefront of your palate. No forks are needed here — the extra flaky, 7-layer crust keeps everything together in these tasty desserts.
Pro-tip: Brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon for a little something extra, or try using a milk wash to give it a rustic, golden-brown crust.
New England Beginnings
It all started with a school fundraiser. In 2013, Kara’s daughter’s school dance was on the verge of being canceled from a lack of funding, so Kara put on her PTA baker’s cap and jumped into action, selling her family’s favorite full-size pies to raise money. It’s safe to say that the pies were a hit; they not only saved a school formal but launched the start of Mamie Pie’s as a business. Kara quickly adjusted her recipe to create a better year-round dessert in smaller portion sizes, using fruit molds to shape her pies with a fun twist. Made with love and simple, sustainably sourced ingredients, it didn’t take long for Mamie’s Pies to create buzz. Today, Kara continues to grow and expand her business, with the ultimate goal of bringing the homemade taste of New England to an even greater audience.
