|A Slice of Jefferson Davis Pie|
This year we took the chance on Piefest to try out a few new pies.
Here was our Piefest Menu for 2013 (in alphabetical order):
- Apple Pie
- Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
- Chocolate Peppermint Brownie Pie
- Chocolate Pudding Pie
- Jefferson Davis Pie
- Key Lime Pie
- Nantucket Cranberry Pie
- Pumpkin Pie
- Raspberry Linzertorte
- Sprinkle Pie
To be honest, the pie that was the most fun to make and I was most proud of us was my Jefferson Davis Pie (an old-school southern pie with dates and raisins), although the lack of people eating it at Piefest this year means it probably won't get repeated in 2014.
Big hits this year were some of our new pies, particular the Cheddar topped Pear Pie and Nantucket Cranberry Pie.

Going in the Oven
There's something special about pies this time of year...and while there are the classics, there are so many worthwhile variations to try as well.
