Pie(s) are squared

Pies in progress

I know, I know, pies are meant to be round. But this Thanksgiving, pies are squared (or at least rectangular). In the past, I've carefully carried pies out across our floodplain...only to find specks of mud atop my perfect crust or meringue once we reached our destination. Not this year! Instead, I've upgraded to lidded casserole dishes...which have the added benefit of making a very deep-dish pie.

I hope your pies are similarly mud-free! Happy Thanksgiving!

Being that I'm not a fan of the crust, I raise my hand to claim the center piece! What a great idea to make deep dish square pies. I like it.

The pies were and are both being immensely enjoyed. The chocolate crust on the butternut squash pie was a perfect conbination. The berry pie almost doens't even need ice cream or whipping cream. Good by itself but great with a dairy supplement. Thanks for bringing them.
