Pies. They are one of the stars of Thanksgiving. I say that Thanksgiving is the Super Bowl of food..... pie is the halftime show. EVERYONE loves pie. Right??? Okay, so I've mentioned before that I have had some weird/unnatural/dumb/unusual food pickiness. Pie falls into that category. Not necessarily PIE.... but pie crust. I've just never been a huge fan. But everyone loves pie... I am a food blogger... I am a recipe book author... I have to like pie.
So I made some pies. I seriously spent a whole entire day making pie. All with homemade pie crust, except one that had an Oreo crust. And the verdict is.... I like pie now! I've heard that your tastebuds change with age, so maybe since I'm maturing (couldn't bring myself to say "getting older"), I like pie crust now.
I have to give a huge thank you to my husband for taking time out of his work day to go get me a rolling pin. I somehow lost my rolling pin and tried very unsuccessfully to roll out the pie crusts with a jar and I was covered from head to toe in pie ingredients.
If anyone is wondering what I did with all of these pies, after tasting every single one, I divided them up and gave them all to my husband's running friends. I knew if I kept them they would ALL get eaten mostly by me.
Here are the pictures...... plus the recipes for the pies and the pie crusts below. Click the recipe for a printable version. Also note that I didn't say my pie crust LOOKS good..but it tastes very good!
All of these pie recipes are in the 2017 edition of my Thanksgiving Recipe book! Please check it out here!
