A pop up pie shop? Could anything sound more whimsical and inviting? On the contrary, this pop up owes its now fully functioning bakery to the practical, and even mathematical scribbles on a paper napkin that read: Pie + Conversation = Ideas. Ideas + Design = Positive Change. Pie Lab in Greensboro, Alabama is clearly interested in serving up something more than pies (though they are delicious). Pie Lab is a small business created by non-profit Hale Empowerment Revitalization Organization (H.E.R.O.) that provides community resources and empowerment to the citizens of Greensboro.

Now, to the pie! Managers Kelley and Seaborn Whatley have taken over the reins in conjunction with H.E.R.O. to bake scrumptious pies for tasting. Here is Chef Kelley’s recipe for Pie Lab lovers’ favorite Butterscotch Pecan, one of twelve pecan pies alone that Pie Lab offers.
