Rustic Berry Hand Pies for the Pie Party


Today is the all new International holiday, Pie Party!  Okay it’s not actually an International holiday, it’s an idea dreamed up by some friends of mine on Twitter.  We all love pie, and want to help people get over their fear of making pie.  So it was decided that July 5 should be a Pie Party, where everyone posts a photo of a pie they’ve made.  I’ve been working on a rustic healthy pie recipe using fresh ground whole wheat and organic sucanat.  It took a few attempts, but I’ve finally created an easy pie recipe that is good for you, tasty, and looks good messy!
