It’s the end of the world as we know it and we want pie!


Pie is one of the best things in the world. I wanted to have this Thanksgiving be an entire weekend of pie. Pot pie, veggie pie, sweet pies, fun pies… All pies. Maybe even a breakfast pie! Instead I have to be happy with a few dessert pies.

Going gluten free made pies more complicated. Thankfully there are more options than there were when I started five years ago. I was sure after how hard this last week was that none of our planned pies would happen. It made me sad.

Today I woke up to the smell of already cooked pumpkin pies. I had to duck back into my room as the pecan pie I wanted so much was carried past me by my oldest daughter. (our upstairs oven is broken. This rental has two kitchens. Even if the basement one is small it made all this possible.) Then the pumpkin pies hurried up the stairs on a tray carried by my beloved husband. I woke up to pie!

In college my friends and I changed the words to a beloved song when times were rough. If it was the end of the world as we know it what kind of pie would you want?

Happy Thanksgiving!

    An idea for a gluten free pie crust: finely chop walnuts and pecans, mix with a small amount of butter or margarine and press into a pie pan (like you would a graham cracker crust). This crust works well with nut pies like pecan as well as pumpkin pies. (I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but my hubby is also on a gluten free diet. As you mentioned, finding alternatives can be a battle.)

    Ah! I forgot. You’ll also need an egg or 2 as a binder.
