    I see that a lot of the commentary has happened around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday’s but I wanted to express how beautiful and creative the cut out designs are on each of the delishous looking pies you have shown here on your site! I enjoy baking and get quite creative myself and am looking forward to trying out some of the designs here. I have several fondant cutters of various shapes and designs and want to see how well they do at cutting pie crusts. I will send you a picture and information as to how it turns out!
    Truly,

    Hi there! I see that you’ve used one of my pie snaps (I’m super happy that you like it!), but you’ve credited it to LiveInternet, rather than me (Jojoromancer – I’m on Instagram as @jojoromancer). Would you be able to change the credit, please? Thanks! Jo

    I cannot fathom putting that much effort into a pie crust. My mother used to make a rhubarb pie with a lattice crust (straight edges on the lattice strips), and I would not have the skills or desire to go beyond that. They are beautiful but, for me, are not worth the effort. I do my artistry elsewhere.

    Such a lovely collection of designs Sue, such a great job. There are so many ideas and lots of artistry in some of them. I also clicked to certain of your links and certain were really interesting. I have to say, though, you are the best! Enjoy the evening!

    I agree with the comments about how pretty the unbaked pies look….I appreciate the artistry and imagine cooking changes the crispness/definition of the design.
    My take away from all the beauty is to get creative with cookie cutters and not waste a scrap of pie crust dough!
    Speaking of beautiful pictures – your new blog picture is wonderful!

    So many of these pies have clearly not been baked yet. I’m wondering what they look like once they’ve come out the oven. I suspect many of them won’t look quite so pretty. Readers, don’t despair if your pies never look that pretty – theirs don’t either.

    All that said, the baked pies pictured here are gorgeous. Those people are your true pie artists!

    OH my gosh! These pie crusts are so beautiful. I don’t think I could cut into any of these masterpieces, eventhough I like most of the fillings. I do have to say however, I did copy a leaf design from Pinterest last year for the edge crust on my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. My family was amazed! They said it was too pretty to eat. But it got devoured eventually!

      I think the leaf designs work pretty well, and the cutters are relatively easy to find. Now you have to top last year and try one of the other designs, Nancie ;)

    These are all so beautiful! I’m especially drawn to the Black Bottom Chocolate Pie Crust! I admit, I’m pretty lazy about pie crust and usually buy it. There’s a frozen one I like that doesn’t have lard or trans fats in it, so it’s ok. One day, I must try these crusts! All of them!

      I’m pretty hopeless when it comes to pie crusts, but I’m inspired by some of the cut out designs, I think I could do that!
