NATIONAL PIE DAY- help me win!

phuh3 Jan 24, 2014 09:36 AM

My friend has an annual National Pie day party http://nationaldaycalendar.com/2014/0... Everyone brings a pie, sweet or savory and we all sample and judge. I want to win this year!

The last time I went, I made a "holy Mole" pot pie with chicken mole. I want something creative, fun, and savory (i'm not a huge sweet pie fan


Any good ideas? thanks!

    Spanakopita - Spinach Pie, Greek Style.

    here is a non-Greek recipe that fits the "pie" description nicely:

      Here's a link to 60 recipes from Martha Stewart. Some of them sound really good. There are a few tarts, empanadas, and hand pie recipes if you want to go that route.


      I don't know if you want a traditional round pie with crust, but there are plenty of those as well.

      Good luck! Hope you win.

          Let us know what you made and if you won. Is there a prize or just bragging rights?

              Many people celebrate pi day with pies.

              Makes sense.
              We celebrated here at work yesterday; I made a peanut butter and chocolate pie. It was quite a hit.

            What about a french canadian tourtiere?? I saw a few threads here on chow about them around the holidays.... And there are a few different traditional chutneys or sauces that you could choose from to go with it.

              3.14159...with a little juggling of the time order, should be The Ides of March, at 9:00 A.M.
              A good time for pie!

                Would a torta rustica (Italian rustic pie) be acceptable? I love layering different fillings so it's pretty when cut. Something like this:
