What can you do to celebrate National Pie Day?

Created by the American Pie Council, National Pie Day is dedicated to the celebration of pie. As part of our American heritage, this day is a perfect opportunity to pass on the love and enjoyment of pie eating and pie making to future generations. The American Pie Council® is encouraging pie lovers across the nation to throw a pie party in celebration of National Pie Day. Hosting a pie baking - and pie tasting - party for friends or coworkers, or to raise money for a favorite charity, are all delicious ways to celebrate on Monday, Jan. 23, 2012. Why is National Pie Day celebrated on Jan. 23 or 1/23? Because celebrating the wholesome goodness of pie is as easy as 1-2-3.

rkosully Pie is wonderful and I love pumpkin pie too! If you have the right recipe there is no need to be intimidated. I have been making this pie crust for a couple of years now that I found in the Pioneer Woman's cookbook. I'll never use another pie crust again. It turns out perfect each time. http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/12/p-p-p-pie_crust_and_its_p-p-p-perfect/

Pie is wonderful...though I am intimidated by crust-making...I have an easier time with graham-based crusts than other kinds. Pumpkin pie is my favorite!
