Let Them Eat Pie!

I just heard that today is National Pie Day! Well, what do you know. Dash by the grocery on your way home so you can whip up your own delicious celebration tonight. Here are some fine pie accessories (and a couple of the basics) to help carry out your perfect pie project:

1. Wire and Ceramic 5-Tier Plate Stand, at ChefsCatalog. You don't need one of these to make good pies but it sure would make them look pretty in the end.

2. Sevilla Pie Server, at Casa 21 Limited. This online store is packed with beautiful flatware. A pie server really adds a touch of grace to your dessert experience.

3. Emile Henry Pie Plate, at Sur La Table. So sweet, with the ruffly edge.

4. Butter. Prettywar-stl's flickr pic reminds us that butter is most definitely a main ingredient for any decent baked good.

5. And, of course, the PIE. Smitten Kitchen loves a lattice crust and shows us, step-by-step, how we can learn to love it too.

Bamboo & I are (right this minute) making Artichoke Pie, in honor of the day!

Agh, I missed it! They should really announce these things like a week ahead of time so I can prepare.

I hope your pies were awesome!
