You know that you are supposed to eat your dinner first. But why not have pie twice? Let’s start with some delicious savory pies to warm you inside & out.
Let’s Start with a Flaky, Buttery Crust
Reformation Acres give you a recipe that tastes like Great Grandma’s–she shows you how to use lard and to decrease the sugar so that it is truly wholesome and delicious.
Let Pantry Paratus make a few recommendations for a perfect crust, too: Pie Weights will give you an evenly baked and flat bottom crust. The ceramic pie bird dates back to Victorian times. It releases steam so that your pie will not bubble over, but will cook evenly instead.
Chicken Pot Pie
If you are looking for a flaky crust and even the ability to make this traditional comfort food gluten-free, then check out this recipe by Laurie from Common Sense Homesteading. She nailed it!
Beef & Bok Choy
Chunky meat and vitamin-packed greens from the local CSA are the main features of this wholesome dinner by FarmFreshFeasts! Sure, you can use a store-bought crust but I recommend marrying this recipe for the filling with Laurie’s above for the crust–and you’ll have everyone requesting this to make regular appearances on the table.
Pasties–Handheld Meat Pies
FarmFreshFeasts delighted us with this traditional recipe that will take you back to your childhood–if you happened to grow up in the North. I did not grow up with these but have come to adore them since living in Montana, of all places. Wrap your hands around this farm fresh favorite; you can even freeze them for later.
(Gluten-Free) Tamale Pie with Hatch Chiles
Spice it up with this beef, veggie, and cheese pie in a cornbread crust! This is another winner by FarmFreshFeasts.
Now that our tummies are satisfied, time to take a bite of something sweet!
Chocolate Silk Pie
This recipe, by Reformation Acres, makes an elegant pie in only about 15 minutes! Just put in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight, and you’ll have a cool, refreshing chocolate pie on a hot day. Actually, Reformation Acres has so many mouth-watering pies, you will want to browse their entire pie section.
Baking in a Dutch Oven
At Pantry Paratus, we appreciate the time-tested kitchen skills of self-sufficiency, and so this dutch oven apple pie is definitely something we plan on trying! Doesn’t that pie from Montana Homesteader look just amazing?
Raspberry Cream Pie
