I Don’t Love Pie

Submitted by

pie e1321709744406 I Dont Love PieThanksgiving is here & I will tell you I don’t love pie.  I love cake, cupcakes, pudding, cookies, croissants, but NOT pie.  I’m just not a huge fan of pie dough (unless it’s the graham cracker or cookie crust variety and it’s still not my favorite)

That being said, I have had (so people tell me) the best pie dough around- my grandmothers, my Moms, fancy restaurants etc.  I have given pie dough a fair shake.  BUT I will still only eat the pumpkin or the lemon &  meringue leaving the crust for the dog.

I wish pie was served in a bowl without the crust or like creme brullee in a cute ramiken slightly toasted and crispy on top.  Hmm….maybe I’ll have to experiment with that.

Today we are headed to my in laws’ Thanksgiving dinner.

“What Can We bring?” I asked a couple weeks ago.

“How about an Apple Pie?”

“Sure, not a problem!” I replied.

The thought of not bringing something homemade made me cringe.  The thought of finding a recipe & making a pie was a worse option- fussing with pie dough (that I don’t even like) and spending an hour or so chopping up fruit.  And no bowl to lick…the horror.

So here is the skinny on how I resolved my bring the pie dilemma  and a little grocery gossip: COSTCO to the rescue!

I bought this gorgeous and HUGE pie for $9.99 for those pie lovers in our family.   And I’m making my homemade gingersnap cookies so solve my NEED to bake!  Costco had a variety of flavors for those of you who don’t bake and are not homemade pie snobs.  And according to my Mom (pie lover in the family) their pies are delicious!  I must say it is a gorgeous looking dessert!

Happy Early Thanksgiving!

NOTE: I will also add I love spending time with my husband’s family and was flattered that I was asked to bring a Pie vs. a salad or bread!  Fun Day ahead….
