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.

  • 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.
