COST: $10.00

The difference between baking a pumpkin pie with canned pumpkin vs baking a pumpkin pie from scratch with REAL pumpkin is life changing! It’s super easy, too! Join NYSN Founder Dave Cervini for a fun online pie making class where you can just watch or bake along with us. The best part about it is that there are only 7 ingredients!
While we are waiting for the pie to cook you can stay on the zoom and chat or log back in after 50 minutes to see the final product. The whole experience start to finish will be about 90 minutes.

How it works:
Register and we will send you a code for our Zoom meeting.
You will need to get a few things if you are planning to make the pie that night. (see below)
Dave will show you step by step how to do everything.

What you will need for the pie filling:
1 sugar pumpkin
honey (enough for 2 cups)
3 eggs
cinnamon & nutmeg spice
1 pie tin
A blender or hand mixer
a pot to boil the pumpkin
a knife to cut the pumpkin

What you’ll need for the crust:
graham crackers (one box)
1 stick of butter
sugar

or

1 premade pie crust. You can get the refrigerated kind (usually found near the dairy section) or the ones in the baking section that already come in a pie tin.

Dave served 5 years in the food service industry prior to his radio career. He studied culinary arts at the New School and Peter Kump in NYC as well as serving as sous-chef for hundreds of cooking classes.
