Friday is National Pie Day


I got this gene from my Mom that makes you want to celebrate anything and everything you possibly can, so when we found out that there was such a thing as "National Pie Day" three years ago, it became an instant family tradition. On Pie Day you are supposed to bake your favorite pies and are encouraged to try out some new recipes. We are getting together with friends tomorrow to celebrate. Sam will be making a Southern Classic, Buttermilk Pie. I am making one of my favorites "Mystery Pecan Pie", which is pecan pie with a cream cheese layer at the bottom. For my "new" recipe, I'm thinking of trying a Pear-Apple Pie (above), or a Sour Cream Apple Pie. If anyone has any amazing pie recipes you think I should try, LET ME KNOW!!!
