National Pie Day G!veaway Jan 23, 2013 #MarieCallenders

MarieCallenders_newlarge

Pie, it’s such a sweet word. One that makes my taste buds stand at attention! I would have to say I love pretty much every kind of pie; berry, fruit, cream, you name it, I eat it!

I also love Marie Callender’s…everything and have for years! Truly they’re my favorite pie’s if I buy them from the store. Now, my blog post isn’t going to be about their full size pies, but on a side note, their Razzleberry Pie, hands down my favorite out of any selection from any frozen dessert company. And yes, you may quote me on that.

Marie Callender's Mini Pies

So, today is National Pie Day. Yes, “pie” not “pi”. National Pi Day actually happens on 3/14/13. Today is the “unofficial math holiday” from the American Pie Council! A tribute to my favorite baked good! Works for me!

In celebration of this day, I grabbed a few of the new Marie Callender’s Mini Pie Desserts. (shhhh I actually grabbed quite a few) I figured, my youngest and I absolutely love their full size Chocolate Satin Pie, may as well go for the Mini Chocolate Satin one as well! I’ve never had Key Lime or Coconut Cream, but unfortunately, they were out of the Coconut Cream.

My oldest is a fruit pie fan and I wasn’t sure what my parents would like so I grabbed a Small Apple and Small Cherry Berry Pie. I certainly didn’t want anyone to feel left out in the celebration!

I decide to try a little experiment with the cream pies. I left one of each (you get two per box) on the counter to defrost and I microwaved the other two. I actually liked the one sitting out more because it stayed colder longer. You also have the option of letting it defrost in the fridge.

The apple and cherry berry pies I stuck in the microwave for the recommended amount of time while my boys kept asking me how much longer it would be. They were ready to eat pies! The pies came out with a nice golden and crispy crust and it reminded me of what it looks and tastes like right out of the oven!

I put all of them out on the table and divvied them up between the three of us. I had wanted to wait until my parents got home, but since they don’t get home until 7:30-8 I need to get my boys heading towards bedtime. I figured we’d be kind and leave a few bites for them.

We liked all 4 of the pies. Buddy’s only comment was, “They should have a pumpkin one.” I think the boy could live off of pumpkin pie. He pretty much ate the entire apple one!

My parents in the meantime, came home as we were half way through our celebration. My mom decided to have a “before dinner” treat. She ate the other half of the key lime pie and loved it. lol She’d never had it before and she said a number of times how good it was. I was also surprised that Doodle offered to try it since he doesn’t do that very often and this was the response it got:

Well, actually the first thumbs up was a real one in response to trying it. He did it so fast I asked him to recreate it. Not quite as “in the moment” though. lol
