Southern Baked Pies began in 2012 in Amanda Wilbanks’ home kitchen, where the UGA grad started tinkering with some of her grandmother’s recipes and baking pies for her friends and family members. Eventually, Wilbanks started selling her homemade pies at festivals, where she gained enough traction to turn the venture into a full-time business. Four years later, Southern Baked Pies has three brick and mortar locations in Gainesville, Alpharetta, and Buckhead, where traditional southern cooking is served directly into people’s homes every day in the form of fresh baked sweet and savory pies.
Southern Baked Pies’ culinary philosophy is rooted in tradition. This means that each of their signature butter crusts is hand-rolled and baked fresh every day, and then filled with only the freshest ingredients from local farms and producers like Dickey Farms, South Georgia Pecan Company, Jaemor Farms, and Stripling Sausage. Tradition is also a very personal thing for Amanda. Many of Southern Baked Pies signature menu items are derived directly from her grandmother’s original recipes, and others are rooted deeply in historical southern baking methods. The result is pies that not only taste delicious but pay tribute to both family and region.
With mother’s day around the corner, what better gift for the woman in your life who so often fills family gatherings with the homemade flavor than with a little taste of home cooking for her to enjoy herself? Choose any of Southern Baked Pies signature sweet whole pies and the bakery will gift wrap it in beautiful pink and purple packaging and have it ready for you to pick up, cutting out all the work on your end and leaving you free to celebrate the special mother in your life. You can’t go wrong with the best-selling Caramel Pecan Pie, which won UGA’s Flavor of Georgia Competition last year and is made with caramelized and roasted whole Georgia pecans. But depending on you mother’s tastes, you can choose anything from established classics like Buttermilk, Apple, and Cheery, to more distinct and seasonal flavors like French Coconut or Lemon Chess. Either way, the gift of good eatin’ will make this year’s Mothers Day a memorable one.
