Easy As Pie
It’s time for this humble comfort food to make a comeback. Few desserts showcase seasonal fruits as lovingly as pie. At its best, pie brings together buttery, flaky crust and sweet, juicy filling in each bite. The basic fruit pie formula – ripe fruit barely enhanced, perhaps, by a hint of spice or a squeeze of lemon – varies only slightly, so once you’ve mastered the technique, improvise with other fruits. These recipes highlight seasonal Florida favorites. Roll up your sleeves, get out your rolling pin and pick out a pie to make today.
