plum crumb pie (with cardamom)

Let’s first acknowledge the fact that it is no longer italian plum season. I know this, okay? I made this pie a couple months ago, and it got lost in the chaotic-ness that is my life during the Fall harvest season on our farm. But guess what? If you have frozen plums (kudos to you for thinking ahead!), they work perfectly! And you could also swap in red plums, which I’ve been seeing all over the grocery store in the past couple of weeks. Yay! Pluots would work well with this recipe as well. So many options!

peach blackberry pie

Say hello to your new favourite Summer pie!  Peaches and blackberries are a match made in heaven.  Sweet peaches are made even better by the pop of flavour that tart blackberries bring (I'm a huge fan of tart things!), and be sure to add a scoop of ice cream on top to really take this pie to the next level.

Now, social media is sometimes the worst....but sometimes it's the absolute best.  I had followed Kristie from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen on instagram for a while now, and a couple weeks ago she messaged me asking to have a baking date!  It was reminiscent of my very first insta-friend meet-up with my now good friend Amy, minus the sleepover that Amy and I had. Ha!

rhubarb galette

Here we go with another rhubarb recipe!  This one involves the easiest pastry dough ever, and is perfect for when you don't quite feel like committing to an entire pie.  It's quick, it's easy, and it's delicious.

We're talking about a rhubarb galette!  Simply make the dough, chill for an hour while you get the rhubarb filling ready and preheat the oven, and then put it all together.  I chose to make a fancy pattern on top, but it tastes the same whether you do that, or simply dice the rhubarb.  Galettes are so perfect for those long, warm summer nights, and I look forward to eating many while sitting on my patio!

Oh hey there!  I'm so excited to be part of a pie party collab again with a bunch of my blogger/instagram friends.  There are soooo many incredible pies being posted today....and I can't wait to try out some of their recipes myself!

I just love connecting with like-minded foodies, and this bunch is gold.  So much creativity and inspiration here.  Also, I know my American friends have Thanksgiving coming up, which is perfect for pies!  And everyone else...who really needs an excuse to make pie.  Treat yo self.

apple cranberry braided lattice pie

Happy pi/pie/3.14 day everyone!

While I truly believe that every day is pie day....I won't say no to celebrating it a little extra today.  I'm pretty bummed that our rhubarb is only two inches tall at the moment, so I wasn't able to make my favourite rhubarb pie, but that'll come yet!  Other options include: classic apple pie, or the incredibly cute apple hand pies.  Or pecan pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, or even cherry pie!  And if you're craving something savoury...these mini chicken pot pies should do the trick!

apple caramel crumble pie

You'll also notice that this pie has a crumb topping.  I love the double crust just like any other sane person, but sometimes I just want those crumbs!  I feel like this pie is the perfect marriage of your classic apple pie and apple crisp.  Also, it's less work than rolling out a top and obsessing about getting your crimps/braids/cut outs just right.  That's a win win in my book!
