Bluffton, South Carolina

Artist in Residence | Southern Baked Pie Company

Amanda Dalton Wilbanks hosts a week of workshops at Palmetto Bluff

Raised in the kitchens of her mother and grandmothers in rural Georgia, Amanda Dalton Wilbanks’ fondest childhood memories involve baking. In her early twenties, one recipe changed the trajectory of her life. After learning how to make her mother-in-law’s buttermilk pie with its buttery pâte brisée crust, Wilbanks dove deeper into the family recipe box and began selling her pies at farmers’ markets. In 2012, Wilbanks founded Southern Baked Pie Company using family recipes and a signature all-butter crust. She opened her first pie shop in Gainesville, Georgia, followed by two more locations in Alpharetta and Buckhead. Today, her e-commerce site is also thriving, shipping pies to patrons all over the country. The pies, still made by hand in Georgia, are now carried by the likes of Williams-Sonoma, Garden & Gun Fieldshop, and Dean & Deluca.
