Pear Cranberry Eggnog Pie

I’m not much of a pie person at Christmastime. You will find me squarely in the cookie camp. I’ve never met a Christmas cookie I didn’t like… except those peanut butter ones with the Hershey’s Kisses in them. We have a huge debate in my house right now about those because I don’t understand why […]

Pumpkin Pie 2020 Edition

My boys are wondering why I am still practicing pumpkin pie. They are of the opinion that there must be a ceiling here – a moment when it’s perfect and I no longer have to get out my notebook, review my notes from past years and reach out for advice. It’s quite possible that they […]

Crumble Topping

We all have our pie preferences, but anyone who reads this blog will know that I am a crumble topping loyalist. Christie is your girl for a pie with a beautiful top crust, and each time she posts one of her creations, I vow to make a top crust the next time I make a […]

Peach Sour Plum Cardamom Pie

This pie has a long name. I couldn’t bring myself to discount any of these ingredients because they are all what makes this pie so good. I thought I had made the holy grail of summer pies with the peach blueberry, but this one was an accidental show stopper. Summer pies are so special not […]

Peach Blueberry Pie

12. That’s the number of times I have made this pie since July when blueberries came into season. It’s been my most requested pie of the summer and people can’t get enough of it. So naturally, I decided it’s time to share it! The recipe itself is not particularly special, though I do think adding […]

Pear Cranberry Holiday Pie Cups

Every so often, I open my inbox to a message that says, “Do you sell your pies?”  My answer is always the same – no.  In every response, I go on to explain that I will gladly make pie for anyone,  I just don’t accept money. This inevitably leads to an uncomfortable exchange, with the […]

Traditional Pumpkin Pie

Let’s face it.  Traditional pumpkin pie is in the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” category. Every Thanksgiving I embark on yet another futile effort to find THE pumpkin pie.  You know where it is?  On the back on the Libby’s pumpkin can.  Sure, go ahead and roast your own pumpkin or get all […]

Spiced Blueberry Citrus Pie

My host son is a pie fanatic. He would eat a pie everyday if I let him.  In fact, twice now he has taken a whole pie to school for lunch.  If he appreciates one thing about America during his year here, at least I know that pie will be towards the top of the […]

Nectarine Raspberry Pie Recipe

Pie Crust Rolling Hack My pie crust recipe has remained unchanged since forgoing shortening several years ago, so I think of my pie-making as unchanged. Sagi (my fiancé and the man behind all things tech at Pie Eyed) found and edited a pie video that we shot last year revealing that growth (or at the […]

Plum Sour Cherry Handpies

“Expect Miracles”.  That’s been the theme of my last few months.  It’s also the tag line of some soap I just purchased. Recently, the rational, grounded me has been replaced with a version of myself that has become interested in quick fixes, silver bullets and magical solutions to all of my problems. On the surface, […]

Peach Berry Almond Crumble Pie

Sweet Surrender If the sweetest bit of surrender is inherent in pie baking, Sunday’s peach pie required downright capitulation. My plan was to make a lattice crust peach pie. I’m a huge fan of multi-fruit pies (or mashups as Emily calls them), but am so thrilled with the new bounty of local peaches in my […]

Summer Shortcut: Strawberry Yogurt Pie

Things were heating up this past weekend – figuratively and literally. We came upon our first hot and humid day which also meant the first hot day in our new house without air conditioning.  It all sounded so manageable when we were buying the house in the crisp October air! The heat deterred me from […]
