What's this? Pies?

Forget the chase, let's cut to the filling.

If you already had pie for dinner, go ahead and have this savory Chicken, Leek, and Mushroom Cobbler for dessert. The recipe calls for dry cider and dry sherry, and while cooking turns all that fun into flavor, we won't tell if you sample the ingredients.

Shelley mixes things up with the Haw Berry Kumquat Pie, using Beijing Haw berries and, you guessed it, kumquats. The result is a "tart, sweet, and citrus-y" pie with a "fragrant almond crust." Check out the full recipe and learn more about the significance of these fruits.

Donna Currie works eight digits of Pi into her recipe, calling for "3 kinds of fruit, 1 basic pie crust recipe, 4 ingredients in the crumb topping, 1 nutty ingredient," etc. The resulting 3.1415926 Pie looks very colorful and well-rounded.
