Loving Lately: Pie Crusts

They are delicious, buttery, flaky, crisp… Pie crusts are the essential avenue to basically all fantastic pie and tart fillings. But as if that weren’t enough, here is what I am loving about them lately: They are works of art! (Featured Image from Luna & Hazel)

I really wish I had talent. Here is “The prettiest apple pie we ever did see” from monicahibbs.com, I can’t disagree.

Or how about a simple polk-a-dot? I love a classic stripe or polk-a-dot, me andΒ Kate Spade. From Linda_Lomelino via Instagram:

Of course you could let the fruit do all of the talking- like the Pear Almond Tart from pastryaffair.com, no one could fault you for that.

But I am just fascinated by these intricate weaves. Thank you hintofvanillablogΒ πŸ™‚

I love this next one, similar to the plaid woven and braided apple pie pictured above. <3 Although I haven’t been able to track down the original, the link from Pinterest will take you to more amazing pies and crust ideas at feedfeed.com.

I’ve featured this adorable heart pie before, doesn’t it just shout love from home? It’s the Strawberry Sweetheart Slab Pie from Jillian Harris:

I’m not going to lie, this crunchy streusel topping over a creamy blueberry pie from The Girl Who Ate Everything looks outstanding even without the intricate fuss.

Okay, just one last shot of fabulous from TheKitchenMcCabe, and then I’m off to make a pie.

  1. Wow, these are beautiful pies. They really make me feel like trying some pretty crusts. I know… You make the crust and filling(because your pies are so good) and I’ll play with the artsy designs? Unless that takes the fun out of it for you, in that case I’ll just eat them! Truly, your pies are always beautiful and delicious, you don’t need to change anything!

  2. We are totally on the same page! I ❀️ Fall and pies, so as soon as the weather starts getting cooler, it gets me achin’ for some bakin’ πŸ€—These pies are inspiring!

  3. Oh Lordy how I LOVE pie …. I’d like to say these are too pretty to eat but unfortunately my latent pie-thievery would find it pretty easy to break in and guzzle them all!

  4. Wow, stunning! That’s very inspiring to look at, get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately, my pies don’t seem to ever look anywhere near as nice as these! But, I do believe I will attempt to make something nicer now in my next pie project! πŸ™‚ Thanks!
