Pi Day 2015 Pie Roundup

Who needs an excuse to eat more pie? I’m not making a new pie for Pi Day this year (I’m making some truffles for this month’s Supper Club dinner instead), but I can’t let the day go without celebration.

So grab a fork and jump in to my 10 favorite (sweet and savory) pie recipes from the past year.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Grandma Ople’s Apple Pie – this classic apple pie showcases a lattice crust that’s covered in a thickened brown sugar and butter mixture before being baked until golden. It’s majorly swoon-worthy.

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie – this silky smooth pie is perfect for any holiday table. Plus, it’s basically like eating a serving of vegetables, right? 😉

Triple-Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Triple-Chocolate Pumpkin Pie – this indulgent, chocolatey pie is almost too pretty to eat. ALMOST.

Spinach, Green Onion, and Smoked Gouda Quiche

Spinach, Green Onion, and Smoked Gouda Quiche – prefer a savory pie option? Smoked gouda gives this light and creamy quiche an almost bacon-y flavor. Sooooo good!

Peanut Butter Brownie Pie with a Pretzel Crust

Peanut Butter Brownie Pie with a Pretzel Crust – because peanut butter and chocolate are BFFs that invited pretzels to the party, and you don’t wanna miss it!

Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie with a Whole Wheat Crust

Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie with a Whole Wheat Crust – this rich, decadent combo is a total showstopper!

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie – a comfort food classic that’s always a hit.

Blueberry-Rhubarb Pie

Blueberry-Rhubarb Pie – sweet, tart and delicious. Also my first really successful attempt at lattice work!

Chocolate Cream Pie with Orange Zested Whipped Cream

Chocolate Cream Pie with Orange Zested Whipped Cream – this pie made an appearance at last year’s Thanksgiving table, and it was gorgeous! It packs a ton of flavor and my family loved it.

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Piecoconut cream pie always reminds me of my Grandpa. This one was a hit with my Supper Club!
