Of all the things I love about fall, pumpkin is definitely at the top of the list. From pumpkin spice creamer and flavored coffees to pumpkin muffins and pies, everything tastes better when pumpkin is involved!
To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, a treasured treat has returned to Frisch’s Big Boy…..their famous pumpkin pie! And it’s no wonder that their pumpkin pie is a household favorite throughout the region; after all, they’ve been baking their renowned pumpkin pie from the same secret recipe and highest-quality ingredients for over 50 years now.
From their flaky, handmade pastry crust to their creamy pumpkin filling, Frisch’s pumpkin pies are a delicious treat for the fall season. They’re baked fresh each day to ensure the highest quality pie experience for every customer at local Frisch’s restaurants.
Last week, I had the privilege of visiting the Frisch’s Bakery to see their pie-baking process in action. While I consider myself an avid baker leading up to holiday season, I was completely floored by the enormity of the baking production at Frisch’s.
I could not believe how ridiculously huge the bowl was that contained the pumpkin filling. It really put my KitchenAid mixer to shame!
And don’t even get me started on the racks upon racks of pie crusts! Each crust was beautifully scalloped with perfectly even edges. It would take nothing short of a miracle for my pie crust to have any semblance of a scalloped edge such as these!
Hands down, my favorite part of the tour was watching all the pies being accurately filled to exact same level. With an average of 2,000 pies being baked per day, Frisch’s certainly not only has an amazing recipe, but an extremely efficient system to create them as well.
We also had the opportunity to meet the Director of Research and Development for Frisch’s. While I knew that Frisch’s was famous for their burgers, pies, and tartar sauce, he gave us a great deal of insight into the painstaking efforts that are undertaken to cook and serve high quality foods for their restaurants.
Well, in case I’ve whet you’re appetite, you might be happy to know that Frisch’s Big Boy would like to reward people with one of their FREE award-winning pumpkin pies! Do you know someone who went the extra mile to help you at the grocery store or a teacher who spent extra time to help out your child with a tough subject?
Who do you know that deserves a special recognition? You can nominate that person to win a pumpkin pie on the Frisch’s Facebook Page for their “Nom Nom Nominate” contest. From October 19th through November 21st, five lucky winners will be selected to win a free pie each week! So, be sure to nominate someone for this delicious reward!
