From Auntie Anne Beiler, best known as the founder of Auntie Anne's® Pretzels, comes a delicious collection of recipes from her Amish upbringing in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and some favorite dishes from friends and family.
When Anne was just a young girl, she spent countless nights baking pies and goodies in her Amish home in preparation for selling during the upcoming weekend at her daddie's farmers market stand. She would regularly bake 60-plus pies at one time. Anne also had to stay indoors because of allergies as a kid, but this allowed her to study alongside her mom in the kitchen as they prepared breakfast, lunch, and dinner for her family of nine. Years later, Anne would start Auntie Anne's Pretzels and grow it into the world's largest mall-based pretzel franchise.
