YOU GUYS. Today is National Pie Day, a.k.a the best and only food holiday worth celebrating. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m a huge pie fan. In any form, basically. I joke (not actually joking) about having pie for my future wedding dessert. So I thought I’d peruse some of my favorite blogs and find the best pies for you to help your celebrating!
I’ve had this Crack Pie from Averie Cooks for a while now and every time I see it can’t wait to try it out! With an oatmeal cookie crust and so much butter, this pie is perfect for an intense sweet tooth!
This summer, I dedicated a whole post to the amazingness that is s’mores desserts. Sally’s Baking Addiction brings in the big guns with this crazy-delicious S’mores Brownie Pie. Yum-o.
Key Lime Pie always reminds me of my dad (one of his faves)! Your Homebased Mom‘s version of The Perfect Key Lime Pie looks absolutely incredible!
Why is it that anything in miniature always tastes better? I cannot wait to try Krafted Koch‘s Mini Blueberry & Meyer Lemon Cream Pies! Adorable and delicious!
Bakerita has brought us the mother of all desserts in this Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. This treat could work at Christmastime, but did anyone else think Valentine’s Day when they saw it? I would love to share this treat with my Valentine!
Have the best pie day ever, Delish Dish! Let me know how you’re celebrating in the comments!
With love and pie,
You know what’s better than a double-crusted blueberry pie? One with a streusel topping. I couldn’t help it, so I had to try it to see if it would be overkill or a great add-on. The verdict, the streusel and crust in every bite–killer. I’m pretty sure you are going to love this as much as I did, especially, since it’s not only simple in design, but also in preparation.
Of course I made my blueberry pie as mini pies, but feel free to stick to the recipe by making it one large one. Sure, it’s a little more work to make a few minis, but the payoff is definitely there.
I love the way minis lend themselves to a great presentation and there’s just something about small desserts that always seems to elicit a few extra oohs and aahs.
Aside from that, if you have a family like mine—there better be enough crust to go around or else you’ll end up with a pie pan full of filling. I’m serious, they will pick through the crust like it’s their own personal pie. See how I solved that problem—mini pies.
