Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

I’m Thankful for Pie!

What is it about Thanksgiving and pies?  Sure, pies are great for any holiday, but I can’t think any other day has to have pie on the menu, except for Thanksgiving.  Pumpkin, apple, pecan, pear, you name it – chances are your Thanksgiving dessert table will feature at least one pie.

Pie baking used to scare me, until I discovered premade piecrusts that you just roll out and fill (yes, guilty).  I’ve seen them OK’d on many gourmet cooking sites, so I think they’ve gotten the stamp of approval from most bakers.  And they make pie baking so much easier! From the totally traditional, to the deliciously different, here are some of my pinned favorites from around the web.

Personally, I like my pies with some fruit in them and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  How about you?

Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and eat well!
