For National Baking Month I asked on Instagram for your baking questions. When I got hundreds of responses, I decided to make this a series of posts on my site. So far we’ve discussed Pies + Pie Crust, Cakes + Decorating, Meringue, Bread Baking, vegan desserts and now Baking Equipment. If you have any questions I haven’t answered, please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to get to every comment that I can!Read More

‘Tis the baking season and time to give gifts to your loved ones who bake pie, cake, bread, cookies and so much more. I’ve had lots of questions about my favorite baking equipment and what to get the bakers in your life. You can always find the list of what I am using in my kitchen in my “Shop” tab at the top of my website. I only post the products that I actually use and love. You’ll find a link my beloved torch below.
I’m also including some gift ideas from small businesses I love. Enjoy!

I made this Apple Pie with Lacy Whole Wheat Lattice Crust to celebrate the milestone of having 200k amazing followers on Instagram. It’s not just any pie, but a lacy lattice pie. It looks super fancy, but really it’s simple to make with the right tools.
The tools I used to make this Apple Pie with Lacy Whole Wheat Lattice Crust:
- A JK Adams Ultimate Pastry Board to make rolling your dough even easier (from JK Adams)
- A Stenciled Rolling Pin to make the dough lacy and extra festive (Mood Wood from JK Adams)
- An Emile Henry Pie Dish which is as beautiful as it is functional (from Emile Henry)
- A Vermont Marble Pie Server, so getting it to the plate is just as spectacular (from JK Adams)
