I'm part of a Recipe Club/ Cooking Club through church.
Each month, we choose a different theme, then meet on a specific evening to share our dishes and to visit. For August, the theme was "Pie", and we met at my house! This was good for a number of reasons. First, I love pie (really, who doesn't?). Second, I am an introvert, but I like the idea of people gathering at my house.
Because it was an insanely busy week, I had to plan carefully to get everything done. I started the pie crust the night before, but didn't *quite* understand how long it would take to get everything done (the freezing and blind baking add tons of time to the process, but were WELL worth it). I woke up at 5am the day of the party so I could get it all done before school, work, house cleaning, and soccer practice. I made Peach Hand Pies (on the oval platter above), Chocolate Pudding Pie (on the cake stand), and a Leek, Mushroom, Bacon quiche (not pictured).
Everything was so good! We had Taco Pie, 3 kinds of quiche, Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, Apple Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping and Caramel Sauce, Chocolate Pudding Pie, Peach Hand Pies, and a Gluten-Free Coconut Cream Pie.
Have you ever had a Pie Party?
