Mom’s menu features two dozen recipes, with everything from the traditional apple and cherry to less common flavors like pineapple or raisin.
“If we’ve got a good recipe for it, we’ll make it,” Puckett said.
A favorite so far, Puckett said, was one that was a top selection at Puckett’s Pie Shop, sugar cream pie.
About 30 pies come out of Mom’s kitchen every day. They sell for $9.50 each and $6 for miniature ones. A few options with more expensive ingredients, such as pecan or black raspberry pies, cost $12.50.
Once Mom’s has “perfected” the pastries, the Pucketts plan to serve “everything dessert.”
In the cases and on the shelves, they plan to have cookies, candies and fudge, along with other treats.
Savory food selections are also a possibility, the Pucketts said. Customers have begun inquiring about chicken pot pies, they said.
Some side selections are already available at Mom’s, including homemade preserves and a Russian tea that Alyona Puckett chose. The owners said they selected the tea because its has a bolder flavor than what American grocery stores typically offer.
