Tasty Pies to Try

I love pie. There's something so homey and happy about homemade pie and I always lobby to contribute pies for Thanksgiving potluck. However, pie is awesome all year round and tomorrow (January 23) is National Pie Day. I don't need a holiday to eat pie, but hey, I'll take the inspiration! Here’s a roundup of tasty pies to try, tomorrow or any day! Click through the links below for full recipes, additional images, and further culinary inspiration from these amazing pie-loving bloggers!

1. Brownie pie

Laurel recently introduced me to brownie pie (a true stroke of baking brilliance) and this brownie pie recipe looks similar in composition.

This French coconut pie (yes, I meant it when I said I adore coconut) looks like a macaroon in pie format. Sign. me. up.

5. Chocolate tofu pie

Got lactose issues? Not a problem with this chocolate tofu pie. I tried this at a friend’s house and was surprised by how good it was...I was a little skeptical at first, despite being pro tofu!

6. Lemon meringue pie

This lemon meringue pie is a major favorite in our house; Laurel mastered it for Thanksgiving! The photo below is of her final product -- impressive, no?
