I have been receiving SO many lovely e-mails and letters from people who have read PIE and then felt a burning desire to bake one. I’ve already posted some photos of pie-bakers on previous BLOGS, but I’d like to collect some new ones. If you’ve baked a pie that you’re particularly proud of and would like to share a photo of it with the world, please send it my way, along with your FIRST name and the city and state you live in.
May, 2013. (Below, left)Faith from Kansas City, MO celebrated Mother’s Day by baking a lemon chess pie. (below right) A teacher and two fifth graders at Cold Spring Elementary in Doylestown, PA made three beautiful pies which they presented to me at the end of the day. Thank you Mrs. P, Kim and Lindsey!
Thanks to Michele Eng, Media Specialist extraordinaire, Hawes School in Ridgewood, NJ. had a MAJOR pie bake-off prior to my visit. Check out the winning pies–a Caramel Apple pie made by Michael and an Ultimate Oreo Pie made by Aidan and Nico! Who says guys can’t bake? Way to go! Thank you one and all for a terrific (and delicious!) day at Hawes.
This peach pie was baked by a mom whose daughter had just read PIE. She made some adjustments to the recipe which you might find interesting. Check out her BLOG: meagenrice.wordpress.com
Meet Aiden from Mahopec, New York. He and his mom listened to the audio version of PIE together and then decided to try out the buttermilk pie recipe. Not everyone is willing to take a chance on a pie that has buttermilk in it –but believe me when I tell you, it tastes WAY better than it sounds. Right Aiden?
These two sisters from Farmington, Arkansas are planning to bake all 14 pies in the book! Check out their BLOG. Abby and Molly have made nine pies so far, and they are rating each one on a scale of one to twenty. So far the peach pie is in first place. http://www.littlehomeschoolontheprairie.com/kids-corner.html
This beautiful peach pie with a delicious cobbler topping was made by Jasmine and Gaby, from San Francisco, California. That’s Jasmine peeking over the counter at us. Nice work girls!
Look at these cool little apple pies MacKenzie made! Instead of using a pie crust on the bottom, she cored the apples, and put pie filling inside, then covered the tops with a lattice crust. Pretty clever, huh? Oh, and by the way – she picked those apples in her own backyard in North Carolina. I don’t know baout you, but I’m impressed!
Meet Hannah. She’s from North Kingstown, Rhode Island and she and her mom baked this gorgeous blueberry pie together in honor of the Blueberry Award. She says that she is planning to bake ALL the pies in the book too. Next in line…..sour cherry! Aunt Polly would be proud.
