Using the hashtag #piesofoverlook I made 12 pies

  • Vegetarian Shepards Pie
  • Grasshopper Ice Cream pie
  • Key Lime Pie
  • Boston Cream Pie
  • Coconut Cream Pie
  • Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
  • Cheesecake with blueberry syrup
  • Peach Pie
  • Salted Caramel Apple Pie
  • Pear Pie
  • Carrot Pie
  • Strawberry Meringue

It was a great combination of elements for a goal. Not overly ambitious(one pie a month isn’t hard) fun, and everybody loves pie! I walked away with a handful of thoughts

  • Custards are hard. I never felt satisfied with any custards I made
  • Perfecting a crust is crucial. Once you have a crust recipe you like, keep that on repeat.
  • Custards 👎
  • Get a crust guard or foil to prevent burning from happening on pies with a wet filling
  • For multi-pie gatherings(Thanksgiving etc) make sure to have several types of pies. Mix fruit pies with cream pies or sweet potato pies adds a little variety to the pie loving
