12 Italian Pies

Did you all know that Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) – in commemoration of the mathematical constant  π (pi)?  To celebrate, FOODIE by Glam asked me to curate a pie recipe collection, and I knew that I wanted my compilation to reflect my family’s Italian heritage.  My husband is Italian (I’m half-Italian), and I’ve always admired the Italian-mother love that goes into preparing meals and serving them.

When my mother-in-law comes to visit I typically receive a message informing me that she’s bringing a few (a few!) chicken cutlets and other home-made Italian delicacies.  In her love-language, a few equals a ton, resulting in the most amazing leftovers.  Although I strive to replicate, my meals will never taste (or look) as delicious as her culinary creations.  I admire her memorized-dedication to the old recipes, and everyone loves her Ricotta pie.

I think that there’s something in the above collection for every pie-enthusiast.  Some recipes are representative of the “old country” and a few have a bit of an American interpretation.

Buon Apetito!
