Black Jet Baking Co.'s Pop-Up Pie Shop

Today, 7x7's Jessica Battilana posted a useful directory of foodie-approved Thanksgiving pies, including Mission Beach's huckleberry, Mission Pie's walnut, and Tartine's cranberry frangipane (and for those who fear the crust, a couple sources for bake-your-own dough). This weekend, SFoodie snapped a pic of another pie maker's poster.

Black Jet Baking Co.'s Gillian Shaw learned her crust craft baking pies at Liberty Cafe. Now she sells cookies and pop tarts ― handheld pies with feathery butter crusts ― at Ritual, Matching Half, Farm:Table, and a few other local cafes. For Thanksgiving, she's selling five varieties of pies (all $20), flavors listed above, as well as smaller pies in a jar ($5) and her pop tarts in Thanksgiving flavors ($3). Shaw uses a half-butter, half-shortening crust (SFoodie approves), and she happily makes her pecan pie with corn syrup.

Shaw's a regular instructor at the Workshop,

and so on the day before the holiday, she'll be taking over the DIY

shop in NOPA and turning it into a pop-up shop where customers can pick

up the pies they've pre-ordered (you're going to pre-order, right?) or

possibly score a dessert on the spot. All orders should be in

by next Monday, Nov. 22. For the extra-straggly stragglers, Black Jet Baking will be selling dinner rolls and pies in a jar at

Ritual Coffee on Thanksgiving Day ― contact Shaw for prices and pickup
