Favorite pie recipes near and dear to my heart …and tastebuds

I know, I know; it’s national Pi day, not Pie day.  And while I feign to understand the mystery of 3.14159265359 and its importance to the world in which we live, I have no trouble understanding the importance of P-I-E to the world in which I live.  Pie is simply my favorite dessert, especially when crowned with a dollop of ice cream (where applicable).

So in honor of the Pi most of us don’t understand, I will offer up a tribute to the pie we do understand: my favorite crust filled recipes–both pie and pie-like.  Oh and my apologies for posting two days after Pi day, but warm, dry weather waits for no one in the Pacific Northwest so I was outside working in the orchard and on my latest project, a high tunnel hoophouse.

Bon Apetit, pie-lovin’ friends! I hope one of my favorite pie recipes becomes one of yours. It’s all about trial and error, so keep up the good fight for crisp crust and thick filling and happiness by the slice.

Now back to my outdoor project: my new greenhouse. And since my greenhouse isn’t going to build itself, I’m headed out to the garden.  Here are a couple fine links to acquaint you with high tunnels and their function in extending the growing season. (I’ll post photos and laments of achy body parts and bad backs, later.)
