A Case of Bake and Switch

Washington area scandals hit the food industry at High Hill Country Store.

With the scent of fresh-baked apples hanging heavily in the air, customers can just imagine the scene in the kitchen: Mom, wearing a flour-covered, red-gingham apron, rolling out ingredients. Dough hitting the counter. Flour poofing into the air. Freshly diced apples being expertly laid in rows. One pie after homemade pie.

Except it's really like this: A bunch of factory-frozen pies are dropped off outside the back door, and then workers, including a brawny, bearded guy with tattoos, stick them in the oven.

So where do the pies actually come from?

"We get them from four or five different vendors," said David Heimburger, another owner. - WaPo

If you want great tasting pies...why not make them yourself? They really aren't as hard to prepare as you may think. And great crust? Why it's a snap if you follow Penny's advise!
