Pie for Pi Day

Heather says:

Happy Pi Day! In honor of the date, I thought I would round up all the pie posts I’ve done over the last few years.

To kick things off, here’s a Pie Crust Tutorial. By the fourth or fifth time I made pie, I felt like a pro. Hang in there for those first few tries.

For those with a sweet tooth we have:

Caramel Apple Pie – brown sugar ensures this one will be a hit.

Butterscotch Pie – a meringue pie with a surprise inside. It’s a very sweet pie without the usual citrus tang.

Lemon Lime Meringue – a twist on the classic. If you’re a fan of key lime pie, this should be right up your alley.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie – It’s always good to have a few gluten free recipes in the arsenal.

For those who are fans of savory pies, don’t worry, I have your number:

Chicken Pot Pie – No kitty, that’s my pot pie. /Cartman

Fisherman’s Pie – this falls into the same category as shepherd’s and cottager’s pie. It has a white sauce and is fairly simple.

Gardener’s Pie? – I still haven’t settled a good name on this vegetarian alternative to the beef or lamb classic shepherd’s pie.

Two Bean Tamale Pie – a little vegetarian Tex Mex twist on the shepherd’s pie theme

Of course I saved the best for last, it wouldn’t be Home Ec 101 without mentioning Tomato Pie. Google wouldn’t lie to me, would it? This is the most printed recipe on the site. Promise me, you’ll just bookmark it to try when tomatoes come into season. Hot house tomatoes just aren’t the same as their in-season counterparts.

    Just an Idea for your "Gardener's Pie" title. I have tried a recipe for a vegetarian shepherd's pie that was called "Unemployed Shepherd's Pie." Thought it was cute for two reasons- obviously no lamb, but also it is a frugal pie with all the beans!
