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.
