Today is National Pie Day in the United States, but that doesn’t mean we cannot celebrate this special recognition day just north of the border. Pie has always been a favourite of mine…and a lot of you out there. There is something about the sweet filling, the buttery crust or the fact that it is soft on the inside and well-baked on the outside. No matter what your reason is for loving pie, it is just plain good!
Pie definitely deserves its own special day like this. I crave pie regularly, so I thought I would share some of my favourites that are delish and would make a great dessert… or a yummy indulgence when you need it:
Classic and All-American, so to speak. Apple Pie is a traditional mix of sweet and tart – the sweet taste of the crust goes well with the crisp, tart flavour of apples, complete with a spicy dash of cinnamon.
BANANA CREAM PIE
You thought chocolate was the primary sweet… think again! Banana Cream Pie is creamy, sweet and offers a slice of heaven to those looking to serve and enjoy a more rich dessert.
Obviously, this is The Domestic Peach’s top favourite. Peach Pie is just delicious, with the great taste of peaches and cream baked into a pie, which goes well with a side of vanilla ice cream.
PEANUT BUTTER PIE
Think of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, just in pie form. Peanut Butter Pie is a decadent dessert and is a huge favourite of peanut lovers who also have a soft spot for chocolate.
KEY LIME PIE
The pure taste of citrus fruit, mixed with sugar and cream, packaged in crumble crust. Key Lime Pie is sometimes the last dessert choice from the pie family, but don’t knock it ’til you try it. It is delicious!
