The Nine Days Of Pie is a special holiday celebrating Shane’s Birthday and a love for pie. It is an open house of sorts too, our way to bring people together and as Shane says, “have great conversations and pie”.
As I look back to last year, I see that several recipes are still missing. I will work to resolve this as I locate a few cookbooks that appear to be hiding. This year I will make sure to be disciplined about posting the recipes right away, and even beforehand if I can.
As always we welcome and encourage satellite celebrations wherever you are – for one day or all of them – let us know. Let’s celebrate together from far away! Send or post pictures and I’ll share them.
This year we are planning a retrospective of favorites from the last FIVE years. Shane and I have gone through this entire blog all the way back to the very first post in 2010(?) and we each jotted down our favorites. Ironically, when I counted them up we both had Nine!!!
Also, as we’ve all begun to rot in our own special ways in this modern world, thanks to all of the pollution and toxins all around us, I will do my best to offer a raw, vegan, paleo, OR gluten free pie each day to accommodate special dietary requirements from guests. (Please RSVP the day(s) you are coming by if you have ANY dietary requirements. I want everyone to enjoy the celebration!)
I recall that during the very first year of the Nine Days Of Pie, all of the crusts were gluten free. In fact, I enjoyed trying the different flavored grains and nuts so much that I have incorporated some them into nearly all of my baking. This is a long study for me, and I have learned a lot about making pie from this annual celebration.
Shane and I are super excited about this year’s Nine Days of Pie, I have some exciting pies up my sleeve, and we can’t wait to see you!
