National Pie Day

Today is National Pie Day, not to be confused with National Pi Day (3.14) on March 14, but the delicious dessert that I’m sure many of us enjoy.

I don’t remember when I first had pie, but I’ve been vegan for many years, so any pie I do eat has to be, well, vegan.  That just means that ingredients such as milk, butter, and eggs which are used to make non vegan pies are replaced with vegan substitutes.

I would say that pie is probably my favorite dessert.  So much so that for one year on my birthday, I chose to have pie instead of cake.

My favorite type of pie is apple pie.  Apple pie hits perfectly, satisfying my taste buds tremendously.  If I allowed myself to, I could probably eat a whole apple pie in one sitting.  That of course would not be a healthy thing to do, so when I do have pie, which is at most twice a year, I take one piece at a time so that it lasts longer.

My least favorite type of pie would have to be pumpkin pie.  That may be controversial, I’m not sure, but it just doesn’t hit the same as apple pie.  I had pumpkin pie a few weeks ago, and I struggled to finish it.  I ate every last bite though so that the money spent purchasing it was not wasted.

What is your favorite type of pie?  If you haven’t yet today, treat yourself to your favorite type for dessert!
