What is it about pie that conjures up images of home and warmth and grandma’s kitchen table?pie quote

Pies are so comforting. Whether classic apple, tart cherry or smooth pumpkin, pies are perfect for any occasion and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Instead of a whole pie, I’ve created heart topped hand pies as a special treat to share with the ones you love.

They are also a great way to celebrate National Pie Day here in America, which just happens to be today!

Did you know there was a National Pie Day? I can’t think of a better treat to pay homage to than the tried and true pie.  Pies are truly as American as well…apple pie!
