Date: Sunday, June 12, 2022

Time: 10am - 2pm

Cost: $200 per ticket (includes entry for two individuals), includes mill tour and exclusive product discount for shopping during class


Grab your friend, lover, neighbor, secret crush, mama, papa... and come make pastry with us!
In this class with Ashley, you’ll dive into what makes our flours unique through a fun pastry experience! Ashley will teach you how to make your own choux pastry from scratch, and guide you through how to choose the right flour for this delectable pastry. Choux is made using a unique pastry technique involving a cooking process (among other things) that yields a supremely tender and delectable dough. You will learn how to make and utilize choux pastry in both sweet and savory applications - after this class, you'll be ready to make sweet èclairs & profiteroles for your honey, or cheesy, herby, savory gougères as the ultimate party snack. 

This class is recommended for those with moderate baking and/or pastry experience - beginners are welcome, but expect to learn a LOT and don't be afraid to ask questions! This class is BYOB for participants 21+, so bring your favorite beverage (might we suggest a brunchy mimosa? We'll supply the OJ!) We ask that all class participants are 13 and up. 

Things to look forward to:

  • Learn the difference between stone-milled and store-bought flours
  • Have an opportunity to work with our own fresh flours, stone-milled right here at Barton Springs Mill
  • Savory & Sweet Choux pastry confections! Cheese gougères, decadent èclairs, and fruity profiteroles!
  • Brunchy Juices (a.k.a. mimosa accoutrement)
  • Tour the mill
  • Leave a more confident baker ready to experiment in your home kitchen
  • Purchase BSM products at a special one-time discount

Whole Berry Bundle
April Soncrant

I am a new owner of a mill and am milling my own flour for the first time. This is so much fun, and the Barton Springs grains are just wonderful. Everything about my order was great, from the customer service, quick shipping, excellent notifications, right to the product itself. Fresh and flavorful. I am very pleased.

Sonora Wheat Berries
Amy Oldham
Beautiful and Delicious

I use the Sonora Wheat Berries for all my non-yeast baking. Muffins, pancakes and more. I love the golden color and flavor of this wheat. My order was packaged well and the wheat is very clean and ready to mill.

Einkorn Flour

Einkorn Flour

Made Einkorn Flour and White Cornmeal pancakes. Great taste. To hot to bake anything this time of year. Trying some grits for evening meal, topped with eggs. Thank you for service and answering questions about grind on corn.


I love spelt, especially Barton Springs’ spelt. It is very clean, and they ship it so fast. I made banana bread recently, and knowing that spelt is a complete protein, along with fruit, nuts, butter and eggs, you’ve got all the food groups in a delicious slice.

Emmer Flour
