Piesignment #2

Greetings pie lovers!  Another week, another piesignment.  We're approaching one of my favorite holidays, the 4th of July, and I'm all about tradition on the 4th.  When I was a kid, we spent every summer in my Aunt Janet and Uncle Bub's pool, evading the brutal Missouri heat until the sun went down and we could light our own fireworks in the street.  It was the Midwest, so you know the food was legit.  Deviled eggs, ham sandwiches, all forms of mayo-based salads, and an American flag cake would all make their way into my little kid tummy.

Now that I'm a big kid, there's a new 4th of July tradition.  We spend the weekend with John's brother Dan and his amazing Gwyneth-look-alike wife (and my BFF) Nicole.  The food is always amazing, and there are no shortage of these...

I'll share my thoughts on the perfect margarita at another time, but just know that we'll enjoy plenty of them on Sunday in honor of the good ole' US of A.  The day will be a success if I'm still awake to watch fireworks that night.

So here's the deal with the piesignment:  Since we're all about tradition, why mess with yours?  Bake the pie you were planning on baking for the 4th, and share it with us!  If you don't have a pie tradition, don't worry... it's never too late to start one!  

Send us a link to your 4th of July pie by Wednesday, July 7, 2010 and we'll share them with our readers!  Not a blogger?  Not to worry!  Take a photo of your pie and describe it, and we'll put it on the blog!  Happy baking!


  1. Hahaha that first pie picture was the exact pie I made last year for Fourth of July! It's like our brains are connected... :)

  2. I will make and photograph an American pie for my 4th of July celebration in London (United Kingdom) if you can tell me how to make a pretty crust! I have started using tarte pans because I can't get those beautiful scalloped edges that I am sure you are an expert at! I love your blog!
