3rd annual Love the Pie Party! Link Up & Giveaways #LovethePie


PIE:  it’s simple, it’s American and come Thanksgiving…….. everybody saves room for it!


This History of Pie…….

The purpose of a pastry shell was mainly to serve as a baking dish, storage container, and serving vessel, and these are often too hard to actually eat. For hundreds of years, it was the only form of baking container used, meaning everything was a pie.

read the rest at What’s Cooking America

There are few things as American as apple pie, as the saying goes, but like much of America’s pie tradition, the original apple pie recipes came from England.  Pies today are treats made around the world,  filled with everything from sweet apples to savory chicken.

Today we are celebrating PIE!

  48. Well, I’m an idiot. Put my name instead of the recipe name in the link, so I had to delete and re-post. I’m now #55 instead of #53, as stated in my previous comment. Live and learn, right? Now, back to the pies!

    I tweeted about #LovethePie and linked to this post at @HeyNanaBread.
