The head baker shares her secrets for making the most scrumptious dessert on the planet.

Valeri Lucks, managing partner of Honeypie (2643 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.), has had a lot of practice in the pie-making department. That will be apparent when you see the Bay View restaurant’s chief executive pie maker whip together some blueberry PieGrams — from-scratch pastries that can be shipped from the restaurant kitchen to the home of a special someone — in this video.

Lucks talks about the special happiness-inducing power of pie. Is it possible to be sad while eating pie? Doubtful. You can read more in our Q&A with Lucks, “Eyes on the Pies,” in the May 2015 issue of Milwaukee Magazine.
