Shannon's Apple Pi
"This is my submission for Pi Day 2012. It begins with the digits of Pi circling the top crust and ends with a number-shaped apples swirling around on the inside. You can make it too! All you need is a few cookie cutters and a little patience."—Shannon N.
Linda's Apple Cream Pie
"My boy and I went crazy decorating the crust with a mini cookie cutter I rediscovered in my kitchen drawer. It came in one of those stocking stuffer gift sets from Barnes and Noble. It took forever to cut them all out but it was so worth it!"—Linda S.
Michelle's Banoffee Pie
"An unlikely combo makes for a delicious pie. Bananas and toffee come together to create Banoffee Pie. This is an individual portion but it's just as easy to make a large pie for a crowd."—Michelle C.
Gayle's Tarte Tatin aux Poires et Vin
"This is actually a tarte tatin: an upside-down French tart with pears and red wine caramel. If you want to be fancy, you can call it a "tarte tatin aux poires et vin." You cook the pears down in a red wine caramel, cover the pan with rolled out sweet pie dough (pâte sucrée), and bake the pie right in the pan. Once it's baked, you hold your breath (hoping not to spill hot caramel over yourself) and flip it over onto a plate so the crust is on the bottom."—Gayle S.
Carolyn's Quick Berry Pie
"I am so excited for Spring to finally be here so I can make my Quick Berry Pie. This blueberry pie is so quick because you blind bake the crust and pour in the delicious berry filling. This is definitely an easy pie for beginning bakers!"—Carolyn S.
