Pie Day!

Picture 004Last Saturday’s National Pie Day was a success. The goal for the day was to make as many pies as possible, and also to make some pies I’ve never attempted before.┬áIn order to make the most out of the time I had, I decided to make miniature pies. Twelve pies were made in all.

The pies were: (3) Apple Pie; (1) Caramel Chocolate Swirl Pie; (2) Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie; (2) Chocolate Coconut Caramel Pie; (2) Key Lime Pie; and (2) Mango Pie.

The Mango Pie was completely new to me, and the only reason I considered it was because I happened to have some mangoes in the fridge. While I was putting together the ingredients, I thought that the pie itself might end up being too sweet, but once it was baked, the Mango Pie tasted similar to an Apple Pie, only with a richer flavor.

Out of all the pies, my favorite was the Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie, which had a layer of baked marshmallows on top. In a lot of ways, it tasted like an amped up Moon Pie. And even then, that doesn’t quite do it justice. It was, safe to say, extremely awesome.

I had a lot of fun doing this, and my wife and her friends really enjoyed the results. Next year, I think I’ll kick it up a level or two and try some crazier recipes.
