PARK CITY, Utah. — The founder and namesake of Auntie Em’s, Emily Burney, re-introduced herself to town last week on Facebook. For those not yet acquainted, Auntie Em’s is a bakery that’s long been a familiar and favorite stop at Park City Farmers Markets. The bakery is now permanently located inside The Market at Park City (1500 Snow Creek Drive). Burney and her staff make delicious cookies, Rice Krispie treats, scones, and quick breads.
But Auntie Em’s is best known for pie. Ironically, growing up Burney hated pie. That is definitely not the case now; she loves both pie and pi. March 14th, known as Pi Day, has recently become an homage to the mathematical constant of π or pi. Engineers and mathematicians have long celebrated it; now bakeries have joined the fun. Auntie Em’s had a successful Pi Day and they’re looking forward to a fun St. Patrick’s day (there’ll be some special menu items for tomorrow’s green day).
Emily is beyond grateful for her beloved Park City community for embracing her entrepreneurial and baking endeavors.
“There’s one thing I do know: I wouldn’t be here without the support of so many people like you or without the help of my incredible co-workers turned friends,” she said. “I am humbled and grateful to everyone for joining me on this journey. Thanks for supporting this childhood dream!”
