Get ready. January 23 is not only my oldest son’s 25 birthday but it is National Pie Day! This year the American Pie Council is encouraging people to not only bake pies in celebration but to bake pies for the heroes in their lives.
This is from the email I was sent:
The American Pie Council (APC) is excited to roll out National Pie Day this Jan. 23.
This year, the APC is encouraging pie lovers to show their “pie-triotism” by sharing a pie with a hero in their life. Whether it’s baking or buying a pie for a member of the military or their family, the local fireman, teacher or your parent, the gift of pie is a sincere gesture of kindness. APC members are also offering coupons on to make buying or making a pie more affordable, as well as offering their own special pie day activities.
You can get recipes and find out more information at the National Pie Council website.
I think it is a great idea. You can bless someone, somewhere, whether it is in the police department, fire department, or anyone who you appreciate. Appreciation is always a nice thing!
Need some ideas? I have done a few pies on the blog. Some of the images aren’t great but the recipes are spectacular. Check out these pies:
- French Silk
- Pumpkin Pie Noir
- Rhubarb Strawberry White Chocolate Tart

And..as soon as I can get images to load properly I will add them! GRRR! I hate technical glitches.
