We all know that I love pie. & trust me, there is a type of pie for every season. Above is a Apple Pear Gruyere Pie I improved a few years ago. Remember the show “Pushing Daisies” about Ned the Pie Maker? Not surprisingly… I really liked that show. & the pie. So here are a few pie links as we drift into autumn.
- Bon Appetit has a slideshow of 25 Autumnal Pies to inspire you.
- I don’t usually transport my pies too far away from their home oven – but check out this Pie Carrier! It looks like a polka dot hatbox, but it could really house your favorite pie or quiche for sharing (the interior has a non-skid bottom).
- Mark Bittman seems to think that crust doesn’t pull its weight in pie – that the filling earns top billing: ” It’s that pie crust adds little to a fruit dessert apart from heft and calories.” While I don’t completely disagree (his recipes look quite yummy & friendly for the gluten-free) – I don’t think the crust is to be discounted. & the point of pie should never be how many calories it has. NEVER. I am quite adamant on the subject.
