Friday Favorites–Easy as Pie

Maybe it’s the “American as apple pie” thing, but the 4th of July always makes me think of pie.  And not necessarily apple, although there are few pies I would rule out.  In my perfect world, sugar is good for you and butter gives you a six-pack.  On the front.

I have a couple of hazelnut trees by my house, and the day I’m faster than the hungry squirrels I might actually get to harvest some to make this Chocolate Pudding Pie with Hazelnut Crust from Everyday Maven.

This Crème de Mint Pie from What’s Cooking with Ruthie might seem like more of a winter option, except I have a big patch of mint growing out front right now that’s just begging to become garnish.

I have fond memories of eating blackberry pies and cobblers when I was a kid.  I just need some adorable little cast irons skillets and to convince my husband to let a few of the vines grow and I’ll be making these Blackberry Pot Pies from The Pioneer Woman on Food Network.

This Caramel Coconut Cream Pie from I Want Crazy is definitely happening.  My son just discovered he likes to bake, and I watched him take a coconut from whole, in the shell, to grated last week.  I’m recruiting him to make this for me.

This Strawberry Pie from Lemon Tree Dwelling is almost too pretty to eat.  I’m sure I could force myself to do it anyway.

My husband loves Red Velvet.  I told him it’s only chocolate dyed red, but according to him it tastes different.  I should probably stop trying to burst that bubble and just make him this Red Velvet Fudge Pie from Pizzazzerie.

Have a happy and safe celebration tonight!
