It’s Pi(e) Day. It also happens to be my daughter’s birthday. Eight years ago we were in the hospital while my wife was in labor with our second daughter. My wife remarked that she was giving birth on Pie Day and for going through labor on this day, she said I should have to make her a pie every year on Ella’s Birthday. Well, there is an unwritten rule that when a wife makes a request of her husband while in labor, their only viable response is, “yes, dear”. So, here we are, eight years later and eight different pies later. This one a Lemon Chess Pie from the testkitchen book, ‘The Perfect Pie’. I’ll be utilizing this new cookbook quite a bit as it’s a great resource!
