PIE-A-DAY #33

apple pie -edited

Today’s pie comes with a story.

All recipes have histories, but we found Lisa McNamara’s Apple Pie alongside her essay in the beautiful collection The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage: True Tales of Marriage, Family, and How We Learn to Eat.

McNamara describes learning how boys’ hearts can be won with baked goods, but that a well-cooked meal does not always mean a successful relationship. You can read the story here.

Find McNamara’s pie recipe below (cook it for someone you’re trying to woo?) and click here to enter YOUR delicious pie (or pies) in the 5th Annual Good Food Pie Contest on Saturday, September 7th at LACMA.
