House of Nash Eats


I LOVE pie. It’s my favorite. No really, it is. I love all desserts, but I’ll take pie over any other choice any day of the year.

Whether you are looking for easy pie recipes for Thanksgiving dessert or heading to a Pi Day pie party (we throw one every March 14th with as many friends as we can get!), there is a pie for every occasion!

I’m a huge fan of flaky, buttery pie crust and fruit pies. I have even won a contest or two with my strawberry rhubarb pie, peach pie, and homemade blackberry pie. I always start with my perfect pie crust recipe, which is the best of both worlds using butter for flavor and shortening for the flakiest pastry ever.

And sometimes I think my husband asked me to marry him just because of my banana cream pie.

What tools do you need to make a pie?

  • 9″ Pie Plates: Pie plates can vary in size and depth, but all of the pie recipes on my site are made with 9″ pie plates unless otherwise noted.
  • Pastry Cutter: For cutting butter and shortening into flour to make a perfectly flaky pie crust.
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pie Shield: This helps protect the edges of the crust from getting too brown while the pie bakes.
  • Pie Weights: For blind-baking a pie crust.

If you don’t find what you are looking for or have baking questions, email me at and tell me what pie recipes YOU want to see on here. I’ll see if I can add the recipe to my collection! There is a good chance that I have one and just haven’t gotten around to posting it yet!
