Pie 3: Oct. 28

I’m posting thoughts about pie from Oct. 26 to Thanksgiving.
The murky and multi-faceted origins of this great thing we call pie means that no History of Pie will ever be definitive. However, you can find a good one at:

It reminded me that our founding dad, George Washington, was a fan of pie and that first mom Martha had a great recipe for Sweetbreads Pie. Heck, how can you not love a recipe that includes this sentence:
“Add two tablespoons of butter creamed with one tablespoon of flour, one cup cream and the yolks of three eggs well beaten.”
