Welcome to our blog!
Hi, my name is Katie and I am excited you came to Tippin’s blog. I started working for Tippin’s about a year ago. You might have heard of Tippin’s from its restaurant days. There are no longer any restaurants, but Tippin’s still bakes premium, hand-crafted pies in a small bakery in Kansas City, Kansas. Even though we are known for our pies, we make other recipes from our restaurants such as, quiches, soups, pot pies, tea breads, corn bread and pot pies. We take pride in our recipes that have been passed down for years and hold ourselves to high standards; only selling what is as good as or better than before. When I started working at Tippin’s I honestly didn’t know much about pies and didn’t eat them very often. Now I have tried so many and enjoy a piece weekly. However, because I work at Tippin’s I don’t bake, I just eat Tippin’s delicious baked goods. However, our bakers here have encouraged me to start baking. They create with their hands every day; placing the crust in the tin, putting the pie in the oven, topping the pie with real whipped cream, filling the pumpkin and pecan pies in the oven. As I walk the bakery floor I get a little jealous of their amazing skills. So, I decided to try and be as good as our bakers. Here I will blog about my findings of new trends in the bakery space, along with baking pies that fit in those trends. (I might even try to compete with our bakers to see who can make a better pie. Beating them will be a challenge, because they make their pies from scratch and have been making them for longer than I have been alive.) I will blog about my experience, introduce you to some of our bakers, lend you some Tippin’s baking tips, teach you about our products and post pictures and recipes as I learn along the way.
