LOVE




  On Jan. 23, 
NATIONAL PIE DAY
happened.

PIE is one of my favorites of all desserts...
just about ANY kind of pie suits me to a T.


I had been sick a few days before this momentous occasion and
SURE didn't feel like MAKING a pie...
but, I have had pie on NAT. PIE DAY
forever .....
SOOOO
out of the freezer came THESE....
CHERRY TURNOVERS..
the best little store-bought pies you've ever tasted....
puff pastry with fruit filling....
I always brush mine with butter and
sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on the tops.
 ...coupled with coffee ice cream...
O  HONEY


The craft stores have so many cute VALENTINE
things to make....from really elaborate to
VERY simple crafts.

Next time, DEEDS comes over, she and I can
get our craft on. I even saved her a
CHERRY PIE.....Grandmothers do that, ya know.:)




....like these adorable little stick-on letters....

Being a non-crafter, I am not sure just what you use these cuties for but there's bound to be a lot of things these would work on.
Probably things like scrapbooking.....


I think they look pretty cute on a plain, white dish, too.....




I sure do love
NATIONAL PIE DAY....
I sure do love .......PIE and YOU !

Pie is on my list of favorite foods too. The turnovers look yummy and I can just taste the cinnamon and sugar on my tongue. Thanks for sharing.

BJ, this is so clever! Pie is a favorite here for certain, and I'm really wishing I had a piece right now. ~ Sarah

PEA said...

Oh yes, pie...I love it as well, all kinds and all flavours:-) I made an apple pie last week and now I'm wondering if I made it on National Pie Day and I didn't even know! lol I've had those puff pastry turnovers and I agree with you, they're simply scrumptious.

Those letter stickers are so cute and what a great idea to use them on a plate:-) I'm sure you and Deeds will have fun making Valentine crafts! xoxo

The best part of a turn over is that it is just the right size. I always love visiting your blog. It is a welcoming to home visit every time.

There is nothing like warm pie with ice cream! I love those little stickers.

Your rant has me in stitches...

Okay, I have always loved those little turnovers because they are perfect to have around when you need something for company. An easy dessert that's almost out of mind when they're at the bottom of the freezer. I love the blueberry ones best.

Glad that you are feeling better. I was sorry to learn at Auntie's that you weren't feeling so great, but you soldiered on!

I enjoy Pie far better than cake.
You set such an adorable table. Love those letter stickers.

Debbie said...

Looks not only delicious put like a crowd pleaser here. Two's a crowd, of course, and the other half calls cherry cakes and pies his favorites.

And I'm having a whale of a time with blogger or google too!

You know, if they would stop trying to make things better they might stop making them worse!

Darn! I always miss Pie Day.
I love pie and I must say I bake a chocolate pie
that can make the angels sing. No humble pie for me today. ;-)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, my that looks good. Coffee ice cream is a favorite of mine. Never tried it with pie.
I was having the same trouble with my blog last week and it finally stopped. I got so sick of it jumping down to comments.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I do love those little turnovers! Yummy! I think I missed pie day but will make it up this weekend! hugs, Linda

Paula said...

Oh my goodness~ Pie has it's own special day? I'm in heaven!! *haha*
Hope you saved me a slice or two, BJ... it looks sooo yummy!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

You're making my mouth water with these photos! Enjoy! ♥♥♥

Sounds good. I love pie too, almost any kind. Hugs, Marty

CAS said...

Not fair, BJ, this looks so good! I haven't had any breads, pastas or tortillas, & no sugar for almost 3 weeks. I'll be looking forward to having something yummy in a few more weeks.

Now that's my kind of cherry pie! It looks scrumptious!

My sister Leslie worked for Pepperidge Farm for 35 years and brought home a lot of discounted goodies for us. If a turnover or pie was just slightly over browned or under, it was sold in the employee discount shop for pennies!! I really grew to love those little turnovers!!

Happy National Pie Day to you and I hope you feel better soon.

XO,
Jane

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

National Pie day? I want one of those!! I love pies - for a main course or desert - or preferably both!!

Sarah

Rettabug said...

I didn't even know that Pepperidge Farms MADE such a thing...~~writing it down on my shopping list this very minute~~ Thanks BJ

Richard Cottrell said...

Ms. BJ. Now I loves me some pie. My Mother, rest her sole was the best pie maker in the world. I'm sure everybody thanks the same of there mother. I would turn down cake every day, but never pie. I had a Valentines party many years ago and I served 14 kinds of pie. It was a slice of heaven. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Sharon said...

Mmmm! I love pie ! Coconut cream is my favorite , but there are not many that I don't like.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Pie is my very favorite dessert and always has been! National Pie day? Really? Boy, am I out of the loop! :)
That Deeds is one lucky little girl to have such a sweet grandma.

YUM

oh so yummy come see what I shared at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

puffpie (puff and pie) said...

I make a very good puff & pie crust that uses butter. The dough is only combined until all the flour has been hydrated. It resembles a very coarse meal padded together. It makes the best pies, very flaky.

French chocolate silk pie--is there anything better!! Always love your "fun" posts. Mickie :)

Theresa said...

Oh how yummy! Makes my stomach growl! You seem to always make me hungry:) I have been to the craft store several times lately and there are lots of sweet craft ideas! Enjoy your day my friend and hope you feel ALL better! HUGS!

Pie used to be one of my favorites but now all I can do is look at your wonderful photos and dream about having a slice of pie. Have a blessed evening. Madeline
