There's nothing quite as comforting as a warm piece of pie after dinner (or heck, for breakfast) and few people can resist chasing around every flaky morsel with their fork until the plate is crumb-free. Tradition is fine, but experiment with the filling when it comes to cherry, peach, plum and berry pies. Or even try adding a bit of rosemary or thyme to the crust as well as to the filling. shop now
