What is the power of pie? Well, pie is just a pastry. Pie is just a dessert. Right?
You know those are trick questions coming from me, right? I have spent the last 3 years waxing sentimental about how pie is sacred amongst desserts, not because of any one ingredient or any one quality, but for the feelings that a pie evokes in those who gaze upon it.
Pie is comfort.
Pie is home.
Pie is love.
Pie is warmth.
Pie is everything we want Thanksgiving to embody. Thanksgiving is the day we give thanks that we are comfortable, at home, surrounded by love, and warm. No wonder Thanksgiving and pie are rarely without one another.
