After learning from the best, founder and baker Kara Romanik built on the delicious pie recipes from her grandmother, creating delicious, single-serving hand pies made from scratch with old-fashioned quality ingredients. These pocket-style pies arrive unbaked and ready to pop in the oven for a warm, fresh, hand-held treat! And with a variety of fabulous fruit flavors, these personal hand pies are a convenient everyday indulgence—from freezer to oven to table (or straight to your mouth ;). When you’re craving that fresh baked pie taste but don’t have the time to make your own, Mamie’s Pies are your go-to! As Kara proudly says, “My customers have the satisfaction of a freshly baked pie, the wonderful aroma while it’s baking, and the praise of everyone who enjoys them.”

About The Food

Mamie’s Pies come ready to go from freezer to oven to table. Every filling of these New England-style pies are surrounded by a deliciously flaky crust and made from scratch for a perfect taste and quality every time. Since these pies are unbaked and frozen, they don’t contain any preservatives, so you get to enjoy the aroma and taste of freshly-baked pie right in the comfort of your home. Mamie’s apple-shaped pocket pies are chock-full of delicious McIntosh apples, and the classic pumpkin pie bodes that familiar molasses and brown sugar flavor. And don’t forget the berries! The strawberry and cherry fillings both have big, berry tastes with the perfect blend of sweet and tart.

Meet The Owner

Growing up in New Hampshire, Kara Romanik had never tried a commercially-baked pie. Her mother and grandmother were such good bakers that Kara grew up eating pies made from scratch. Kara assumed that all pies tasted as good as her mom’s and grandma’s…until the day she tasted her first store-bought pie. That’s when she realized just how special her grandmother’s pies were. Following her grandmother’s tradition, Kara adapted her family’s pie recipes and baked the same pies for her own children. After relocating to the Bay Area, Kara and her three children had an opportunity to help raise funds for a dance at her daughter’s school. When people couldn’t get enough of her ready-to bake pies, Kara knew she had something really special. Inspired by Kara’s mom Mamie, Mamie’s Pies was born and launched to the local community in 2012. Kara’s 3 school age children all help with the business. They’re brand ambassadors, sharing Mamie’s Pies during tasting demos at local grocery stores and wherever they go!
