It’s that time of the year when we bond with our loved ones over pie. So we thought we’d give you a pie round-up of some of our favorite pies from throughout the year.
Why pie? Oh, it’s just the best way to feature all kinds of deliciousness. It’s like putting a pretty circular frame around your favorite things.
Plus, to quote the Gilmore Girls, “An education is the most important thing in the world, next to family.” “And pie.”
So since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, let’s start with Mince Fruit Pie – it’s one of our family’s favorites and it’s perfectly fall-themed. Yes, it has the word “mince” in it, but there’s no meat in there – it’s actually chock-full of fruit.
Looking for something cold? How about a slice of Blueberry Ginger Ice Cream Pie? Even though the temperatures are dipping, a colorful ginger-y pie is always in season. (And remember, pie tastes good. But you should really share it with at least one other person.)
If you’re looking for a quick fix, you can always try this Easy-As-Pie Strawberry Pie that you can pull together with ingredients you most likely have in your cupboard and fridge. (Surprise! It’s got a super-secret layer of chocolate on top of the crust!).
Speaking of pie, er, pi… How about an Avocado-Key Lime Pie? We made this one for Pi Day, but it’s truly delicious all year round.
And of course, don’t miss an opportunity to try some delicious rhubarb with this Rhubarb Custard Pie.
Want to get the kids involved? Make a lattice-top pie crust with them – it’s easy and fun; and it’s well-suited for just about any kind of fruit pie.
What’s that? Too many sweets in this pie round-up? OK, try this fun purple-and-white potato pie made with all of your favorite Thanksgiving leftovers. You’ve got turkey, veggies, and gravy on the bottom, and alternating mashed white potatoes and sweet potatoes on top.
We hope you’ll enjoy one or more of these pies. Maybe this pie round-up will even inspire you to start a new family tradition. The more pies, the merrier.
Pie pie pie. And Gilmore Girls. That’s all I need.
Ha! Thanks, Dorothy!
