In preparation of pi(e) day (March 14….3.14 in case you haven’t heard of it!), I thought I’d do a little round-up of all the pies I’ve made here on the blog! Pie is one of my favourite desserts to make, and is so much simpler than people think.
There’s a lot of talk of butter vs lard vs shortening in the pie world, but we aren’t going to talk about that today. Honestly they’re all delicious, and I find a lot of preference comes from what you grew up on. What did your family use? Mine always uses lard, so while I often do use butter, a lard crust tastes like home. I hope there’s a pie here that catches your fancy, and always remember that they are one of the easiest desserts to customize to your own taste!
