Every winter, bakerbiker and I, along with our good friends L and G, host a pie party. The idea's pretty straightforward: everyone brings a pie of their choice and we gorge ourselves. bakerbiker and I made a blueberry crostada, using organic Maine blueberries we picked one summer and have been saving just for winter treats like this.
This year's pie selections were, in our humble opinion, out of this world. Highlights included a buttermilk pie - sweet, but not too sweet and very light tasting - and a cranberry cherry pie - an amazing combination of sweet and tart which was a perfect endnote to the key lime, lemon merengue, pumpkin, pecan, and nutmeg maple cream pies in between. What's your favorite kind of pie?
