About Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea - that's me!

I grew up making pies and cookies with my grandmas.  Grandma Matthews gave me the nickname, "Sweet Pea", while Grandma Peterson gave me her rhubarb custard recipe.  My baby book tells the story, "loves cake".  I guess I was born with a thing for sweets that are worth the calories and that's never changed.

After closing Glorious Beans, our coffee shop cafe in the Outlets in Albertville, I decided to bring a pie to our local meat market to see if they would sell them.  Fast forward all these years and pies are still our thing.

Here's what makes our treats seriously craveable:

Licensed & insured - got it

Customer satisfaction - check

Treats that are worth the calories - yep

Heirloom and original recipes - of course

Small batch from scratch baking - we do that

Support local non-profit with every purchase - absolutely

We think pie builds community and makes the world a better place.  The world could use more smiles, so we'll keep making pie.

"I've never seen someone eating pie that didn't smile!"

Yours in all things sweet,
