About Us

Laura in the kitchen at Scotty's Country Kitchen and Scotty's Pies

1987 Once upon a time in a small town in the heart of New York's Hudson Valley, Scotty's Country Kitchen was born. Based out of our family's apple orchard, Soons Orchards (est. 1910), our bakery soon became famous for its classic homemade desserts – starring, of course, our fabulous apple pies!!  

We created our own flaky pie crust which we still hand-roll for every single pie. We invented our delightful cinnamon-y crumb and our unique apple-cider syrup, made from Soons fresh cider, and we combined all these delicious ingredients together with our wonderful Soons apples to create our scrumptious apple pies. A half-million pies and 22 years later – we re still going strong!

Hmmmmmm, now what can we put in these pies?

We’ve since branched out from our humble Apple Pie beginnings into other fruit pies - Blueberry, Cherry and Peach varieties - along with seasonal favorites like Pumpkin, Strawberry-Rhubarb and Pecan Pies. We also bake other goodies for the orchard and farmers markets - Irish Tea scones and soda bread (from an authentic recipe garnered during our Irish honeymoon!), chewy cookies, loaf cakes, brownies and our much-loved apple turnovers.  After so many years, we still bake the right way - from scratch, with real ingredients and no additives, preservatives or things you can t pronounce! We hope you'll savor the old-fashioned quality and taste of our baked goods even as we send them to you using modern internet communication and next day delivery.


Please Enjoy and Remember... Life's is Good when you Eat Pie!!
