A Bit of Homemade Goodness

[dropcap]Though[/dropcap] Sharon Woodson only launched her boutique business Honey Pies last fall, word has gotten around: her pies are deliciously endearing.
This Northwest Arkansas native started her company, calling on know-how she gained while helping her grandmother — “a true Southern lady” — in the matriarch’s kitchen. And while Woodson said she’s developed her recipes through research and trial-and-error, the use of fresh, traditional ingredients shine through.
Real butter and in-season fruits, such as pears and apples in the winter, make the difference with Honey Pies. “I also get great feedback from my customers,” Woodson said. “I’m very fortunate to have loyal customers who keep coming back.”
This month, Honey Pies’ seasonal flavor is a shaker lemon pie. The fragrant pie features a double crust, thinly sliced organic lemons and sugar sprinkles. Honey Pies are baked-to-order and sold whole for $24. Order by noon and you could enjoy your pie that same day. Woodson also sets up shop at food-truck meets and special events, where her mini-pies are available for $4 each.
