This Mount Baker man has been making pies for almost 50 years

Bill Hart owns Baked from the Hart, a Mount Baker pie shop that specializes in favorites like bean and sweet potato pie.

SEATTLE — EDITOR'S NOTE: This segment of KING 5's Evening was shot prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a stately Mount Baker house, Bill Hart bakes pies -- and he's been doing it for a long time.

"I've been doing this now...whew, It's hard for me to believe sometimes," Bill says. "Almost 50 years."

If you're looking for expertly-baked pies, Baked from the Hart is the place to go. Bill started baking pies when he was quite young- and after years of perfecting recipes, selling pies out of cars, in parking lots, and in hair salons, Bill has his very own pie palace -- deservedly so.

Bill specializes in his sweet bean supreme pies. They're similar to sweet potato pies, but made with small white beans instead of sweet potato.

"To give you a little better history, sweet potato pie came out of the church. Sweet bean supreme pies came out of the mosque," Bill says.

Bill sells pies in three sizes: regular, which is a full-sized pie; medium, which is a pie for two (or a personal pie, no judgement); and tart, which is a few bites of pie baked into an adorable tart.

From blackberry cobbler to sweet bean supreme- Bill Hart has you covered.
