Happy National Pie Day (Plus a Giveaway from Marie Callender's)

Happy National Pie Day (Plus a Giveaway from Marie Callender’s)

National Pie Day

What do you think of when you hear the word pie? I think of boiling down pumpkins with my kiddos in the fall, my grandma’s perfectly flaky pie crust, or eating mini pot pies with my mom as a child. Pies are delicious, usually easier to make than cakes, and they always seem to gather a crowd, or at least a cartoon bear who plots to whisk them away. Ah, the delight that is a pie. Pies are so wonderful that they even have their own day. Today, January 23, 2013 is National Pie Day and I absolutely plan to eat some pie to celebrate.

My kiddos and I got a head start on National Pie Day by sampling Marie Callender’s Chocolate Satin Mini Pies. These little pies are perfect as a single serving or as a shared treat. This pie is ready to eat in no time flat. In fact, we ate ours right out of the freezer because we could not wait. So much for self-control! This creamy pie even has a cookie crumb crust. Oh yes, it was delicious! There were two other things that I loved about this pie. One, I did not have to make it, and two, it is small so I had to stop at one serving. What a perfect way to slow down, relax, and savor the deliciousness that is Marie Callender’s.

National Pie Day

Today’s pie will likely be the mini peach pie (peach is one of my favorites). Marie Callender’s has several tasty mini pie flavors in addition to their famous full-sized pies. I recently reviewed Marie Callender’s Lattice Apple Pie and it was amazing. Have you tried it? You can leave a review and rating at MarieCallendersMeals.com for this or any other Marie Callender’s products you’ve tried. You can also head over to the Marie Callender’s Blog to share what kind of pie you plan to celebrate National Pie Day with.

Enjoy your pie today and don’t forget to enter the giveaway located below the picture of my daughter trying to sneak some pie during my photo shoot. Good luck!
