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

Today, 7×7'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.
