We're counting down the days to Pie Social 2011 -- 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 12 at 408 E. Roosevelt in downtown Phoenix. Don't forget, you can get in on the action yourself. Here are details for community bakers. And don't forget about our celebrity bakers -- every day we'll introduce you to a different one.
Today: Joan & Tim O'Connor of Honey Moon Sweets
The O'Connors met at the Culinary Institute of America in New York and have been working the dough together ever since. Their bakery has been a part of the Phoenix baking scene for 15 years and their ovens turn out everything from cookies to breakfast pastries.
Pie is the new flashback because few things remind you of Grandma better than pie.
Why does Tim want to donate pie to Sheriff Joe?
The hardest part about baking a pie is not overworking the dough. You think you need to work it more because it looks like it won't hold together, but it will.
The Phoenix food scene needs more genuine good guys and ladies, and less "celeb" chefs.

SHOW ME HOW
When I'm not in the kitchen, you can find me chillin' with my kids and the dog.
I'd like to throw a pie at Sheriff Joe. Did I say that out loud?
