Pies. They are so beautiful, so practical, so representative of our collective dessert experience as a nation.There is a book, I love called Pie Everyday with tons of all sorts of pie recipes in it and crusts. I wish I had it. Not that I don't own dozens of cookbooks with great pie recipes! I need to have a visit to my kitchen library and get a nice "pie list" going. Here are some that I want to try as I ponder the cooler weather and all the festivities to come:

Apple Cheddar
Spicy Pumpkin in a cornmeal crust with candied pepita garnish
Butterscotch Pie
Bourbon Buttermilk
Cranberry Pecan
Chocolate Tart with Marshmallow topping
Caramel Apple
and of course concord grape if I can find any down here~

In years past me and my wonderful friend Molly threw annual cookie parties. They were a sight to behold
This year as I no longer live in NYC with all of my buddies, I decided to start a new tradition. PIE PARTY.
What do ya think?
