For the Love of Crust

Stack of pie crust

Forgive my sub-par photography for a moment and let’s talk about that stack o’ deliciousness, shall we?

I have a pie-related confession to make, though I don’t think anyone will be shocked by this one: I love pie crust. I think we’ve established that a good crust is the foundation of a good pie, and a good crust starts with good dough. And you know that little bit of dough that always seems to be left over, after you’ve trimmed and sealed your crust, and made a cute little apple or whatever for your top? That’s the thing I love. While I like to make a little mini-tartlet with it, usually I just finish and bake it along with the pie, making a filling-less crust treat. It feels a little silly, but I’m serious. I love my crust so much that I don’t even need filling in it to make me happy.

What you see up there, dear pie lovers, is the foundation for three fantastic pies. Pies that will have filling in them! One of those pies already has a home! I wanted to call it a Forever Home, like a pet adoption, but let’s be honest: while that pie is going to be loved and cherished, it has a very short life expectancy, and that’s the way it should be.

But what about the other two? They’re in the lottery, of course! Both of them! Are you feeling lucky? You know what to do:


And of course, if you’d like to take luck out of the equation, I’m happy to make a pie especially for you. Email me and let’s talk pie!
