Morgan’s Banana Nutella Cream Pie earned her a second place ribbon in the cream category at the Third Annual Good Food Pie Contest.  Keep reading for her story and her recipe…

My name is Morgan Simons. I’m a chef and baker, and have owned a catering company since I was 21 years old. I have always loved pie, and as far back as I can remember I wanted to open a pie shop. I recently launched a baking business called Pi bake shop, which mainly focuses on pies, both sweet and savory. We are currently only available as a delivery service, but hope to be in many local farmers markets very soon!
