this is awesome for two reasons.
first of all, thanksgiving is next week. (i know… how in heaven’s name is it already here?!) so ’tis the season to make pie. just in time, there’s a list of delicious, creative pies to choose from for next thursday. i am sure there will be a multitude of gluten-filled pies included. if you see one you can’t resist and it’s just a matter of needing a gluten-free crust (ie. the filling has no gluten in it), use my pâte brisée recipe below. it will make enough for a double crust pie. or cut the recipe in half for a single crust.
also, if you join the pie party, you’ll be eligible to win some good stuff. you can even write a quick pie recipe in the comment section of her page… here’s a little message from cheryl, “come join love the pie with tidymom sponsored by cherokee USA, le creuset, wilton, bags by bloom and harvard common press.”
see, awesome, right!?
(i do have to add a special note: the heritage apple pie being given away from cherokee USA is the very same, very heavenly [though very gluten-filled] apple pie made by a bakery owned by the family of one of my dearest friends… it honestly may be the most delicious pie i ate in my gluten-eating life. we even served it at our texas wedding with bluebell ice cream in place of a groom’s cake. if you or friends are not required to eat gluten-free, it ships beautifully, makes a wonderful gift and will make your house smell divine as it bakes. i promise, i have no financial relationship with these folks, other than that i did style and photograph some pie shots, including the ice cream-topped slice you’ll see on the site 10 years ago. even then, i think i was paid in pie… and it was so worth it.)
