Jane’s Christmas Pies & Stories

At Christmastime, most people think of baking Christmas cookies—I always do. But I also bake pies. What better gift to those you love?

My pie recipes include many that are great for Christmas, made from ingredients that are easy to find. And, as always, I urge you not to be afraid of making a pie crust. It’s simple, quick and easy! Just click here:

You won’t find every pie ever invented here, but you will find dozens of my favorites, along with tips on how to become a pie chef yourself. Start with my Easy Pie Crust. In no time you’ll be making my Pie of the Month.

I have a lot of pie recipes, many handed down from relatives, and I’ll share the stories that go along with them. For the most part they are simple pies that use fresh ingredients, not complicated concoctions that will send you off to the gourmet market.

Why not start by reading some pie stories? You’ll learn why my blueberry pie is “celestial.” How they make a pumpkin pie “Down Under.” Even how to make a delicious vegan chocolate pie out of…tofu?!

Each pie story leads to a pie recipe. That’s the way it works on PieChef.com!

Of course, everything doesn’t always go right. But pie bloopers can be as much fun as pie successes!

I really, really love pie! I’ve been known to bake eight pies at a time to serve 30 hungry circus performers!

Our whole family understands intuitively that fruit pie makes an excellent breakfast (if we’re lucky enough to have any left from dinner the night before).

My husband, Tom, shares my love of pies. His birthday cake of choice is a strawberry rhubarb pie.
