Pie Day 2021

That one day of the year when the kitchen turns into a bakery is here! This year I made nine pies, and I even tried a new recipe! I also worked a bit at making my crusts look prettier, with some mixed results…pie crust is just not something I’m good at.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Cranberry custard
  • Nutella
  • Blueberry
  • Butterscotch
  • Pumpkin
  • Pecan
  • Caramel apple
  • S’mores
  • Apple crumb

It’s going to be hard to wait until tomorrow to dig in!

Pie Day 2020

Happy Pie Day!

We baked eight pies today. Not a record, but still a lot of pies, and our house smells like a bakery!

Caramel-apple (Bunny made this one, and it’s definitely the prettiest of the bunch!):

Lemon meringue:

Cranberry-apple:

Peanut butter:

Pecan (Someday I’ll make a pecan pie that actually looks pretty, but until then, at least it tastes good!):

S’mores:

Butterscotch:

Pumpkin:

Now we just have to wait until tomorrow to dig in!

Piestravaganza 2017!!!

After the record NINE pies I made last year on the day before Thanksgiving, this year’s seven pies didn’t seem like quite as much work!

We’re having our standard lineup, as follows:

This day is a lot of work, but it also makes the house smell like a bakery, so I can’t complain too much!

Pie Day 2016

It took me about seven hours to make the nine pies we need for Thanksgiving this year. We’ll be enjoying caramel apple, cranberry-apple, chocolate hazelnut, pecan, s’mores, butterscotch, pumpkin, apple, and vanilla cream pie…but definitely not all at once!

Pies for One and All!

As I always do the day before Thanksgiving, I spent the better part of today making pies. One for each member of the family, as is our tradition:

This year’s pie lineup:

  • Ryan–Caramel apple
  • Me–Spiced cranberry apple
  • Turkey–Peanut butter cup
  • Bunny–Pecan
  • Ladybug–Butterscotch
  • Moose–S’mores
  • Chickadee–Pumpkin

Chickadee did actually pick her pie this year, but I think pumpkin pie is the only one she really knows by name…I hope she’s happy with her choice!

Pie Day!

As is our tradition, I made seven pies today…one for each member of the family:

Here’s the pie lineup:

  • Ryan–Peanut butter cup
  • Me–Wassail (cranberry apple)
  • Turkey–Pecan
  • Bunny–Butterscotch
  • Moose–S’mores
  • Ladybug–Caramel apple
  • Chickadee–Pumpkin

Technically, Chickadee still can’t choose her pie flavor, since she doesn’t really have a favorite yet, so she was assigned pumpkin. Maybe next year she’ll pick her own!
