Holidays/ Pies, Tarts and Crumbles

In Honor of Pi Day…

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting weekly lately. I’ve been stressed out with term papers, tests, after school commitments, etc. But hopefully the bulk of that will be behind me soon and I’ll be able to blog to my heart’s content!

As Saturday just happens to be Pi Day (3/14/15!), I thought I’d share a list of all of the pie recipes I’ve posted to date.

We might as well start with the foundation: the crust! This All-Butter Crust is probably the only pie crust recipe I’ll use. Ever. It’s flaky as can be, with plenty of flavor (from that butter, of course!) And here’s a bonus: It freezes beautifully. You wouldn’t believe how much pie crust I currently have in my freezer.photo 3Now on to the pies! If we’re going in chronological order here, we’ll have to start with this Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie. Picture your favorite crust, filled first with a dark chocolate ganache, then with a pecan pie-esque oatmeal filling. I’m getting hungry.

Or, if you don’t try the Salty Honey pie, give this Nectarine Blueberry beauty a go!

Spiced apple slices drizzled in homemade caramel sauce, sprinkled with sea salt and wrapped in a flaky, buttery blanket of crust. The ultimate crowd-pleaser.

Well, that’s it for now! But I may have a new pie recipe up for you sometime this weekend, schoolwork permitting. Sure, it’ll be after Pi Day, but to me, it’s always Pie Day. Here’s a hint: it involves graham crackers and marshmallows…

Have a great Pi Day, and happy nibbling!

    […] Snickerdoodles recipe I posted so long ago. But, because life is crazy right now (still working on that term paper I mentioned a few weeks back!) and because I am way too forgetful a person to remember such things, I decided to just stick with […]
