White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has a big surprise in store for those in the media who accused her of not making her pie on Thanksgiving.
Sanders was challenged by some media members last Thursday when she shared a photo on Twitter of a pie she had baked for Thanksgiving.
Despite saying she made the pie at her family farm, some members of the media challenged the authenticity of the picture.

April Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and CNN political analyst, generated a lot of attention on Twitter when she questioned Sanders’ pie-making skills.
“Show it to us on a table,” Ryan wrote.
Ryan called on Sanders to prove that the pie was real, telling her to “show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it.”
In good fun, Sanders responded to Ryan’s criticisms and said she would bake a pie for the reporter and bring it to her.
Sanders included the hashtags “RealPie” and “FakeNews” in her tweet, a subtle dig at Ryan and those questioning her pie.
On Wednesday, Sanders said she plans to put her pie-making skills to work and will be baking pies for some members of the White House press pool.
“Being from the south, I think one of the most offensive things that you can accuse somebody of is (serving) a store-bought pie,” Sanders said, according to Fox News Insider.
“I absolutely made the pie and I have, since this week, purchased the ingredients to make many more,” she added.
Sanders poked fun at those who have questioned her pie-making abilities.
“I will be making sure I get those to some of my friends in the White House briefing room,” Sanders said.
She said she used to make pies “for all of my neighbors on the street, so if you don’t believe me, you can go back to ask people in Arkansas.”
