From my own memories, if there is something that my Dad still cannot pass up, it is a good piece of apple pie, particularly if there is any ice cream around the house. When he would walk in from a long day’s work, Dad would just brighten up if he smelled a homemade pie baking in the oven. He knew that soon he was going to be diving in to it and it made him happy. It was his comfort food. Dad liked apple the best, but any homemade pie was a wonderful treat.
Serve pie for dessert after a great holiday meal or offer to a guest with a cup of coffee anytime. Pie is still a true dessert and your friends and family will remember you for homemade pies with a little bit of love added for good measure.
