Happy Birthday Pie #1

If my family was asked to vote on a favorite dessert, apple pie would win hands down! I'd been kicking around the idea for a Happy Birthday Pie and thought this one turned out cute.
Simply roll pie dough between your fingers and the counter into a thin "rope",
shape it into letters and arrange them on the upper crust. 
Who says Birthdays are all about the cake?

  2. I love apple pie but rarely have it since Hubby does not care for it and I would have to eat the whole thing myself... which isn't really a problem of course... LOL

  3. Your blog needs a disclaimer warning people to wear a bib to control all the drooling your recipes and pics cause. Pie. MMMmmmmm.

  11. I'm thinking this feels very patriotic with the star too Lynn. Remember your letter cutters you bought, I like your rolled letters here even better. I'm pinning it to my cooking tips board. Thanks!

  13. Well, I would always rather have pie than cake, so this is a fine idea. :) In the Midwest we used to say "happier than a dead pig in the sunshine" - but I never understood that one. Yours makes sense. :)

  15. I used to decorate my pies with leaves and such ( with the leftover dough ) and then...where I worked, we always had pies versus cakes for our birthday office celebrations, so you and I are on the same page! :)

  18. That looks so good! Love how you made the letters too! I have those little abc cutters and they are a nuisance to use!
