Spending the day at The Coffee Pot Bakery and Cafe was fun, but also a huge temptation. Not only do they make fantastic treats for all (they have a huge selection of gluten-free items for people like me!), but they use the pottery that is made on site as they make all those treats!
Look at those Easter Cookies, they make my mouth water! And it only gets better from there!
Pies get whipped cream – fresh made whipped cream!
Topped with chocolate shavings!
All the while Rocky Road Bars fill the room with delicious smells as the marshmallows puff up and soften on the bars only to be smothered in creamy chocolate icing.
And then there are the chocolate cookies!
Just in case you think they only make sweets, lets take a look at the Chicken Pot Pie – absolutely inspiring. After watching this I went home and made my own, but you could just call them up and order one (hint: it is a lot less work that way).
It starts with hand-made crust, carefully rolled out to just the right shape and thickness.
Then scoop in an overflowing amount of delicious chicken and veggie filling! Yum!
I believe it was two big scoops of that filling, making a mountain in the pie plate.
Then roll the top crust and cut it for extra beauty.
Carefully lay it on the top of your mountain of deliciousness and carefully pinch the edges together.
Bake, cut pieces and serve. Or just go on down to The Coffee Pot and order a slice. Believe me, it is better than you can imagine.
Pair that pot pie with a fresh made dinner roll and you’ll think you are in heaven!
Now back to those sweets: let’s try some fruit tarts.
Of course there is more crust to roll, just not quite so big.
Add a generous helping of fruit filling – here it is blackberry!
Fold the dough over, and seal with care!
Aren’t they beautiful!
How about frosting some cinnamon rolls? Pretty good, huh?
Okay, enough! I’m going to gain 10 pounds just thinking about all this deliciousness. Between Mountain Arts Pottery and The Coffee Pot Bakery and Cafe, these Montana Producers will blow you away with goodness and beauty.
Thank you to Dave and Jennie Lockie for letting me photograph the goings on of their businesses! It really was a lot of fun!
