The Winter Festival of Pie 2008

Every year, The Winter Festival of Pie (TWFoP) gets bigger and better! For me, the holiday spirit manifests most in sharing, especially food, with friends, family, and strangers, spreading good cheer and making new memories. It's all of the festivities with none of the religion (unless you worship pie, and as Nikki says, she has more faith in pie than she does in Jesus--thus, the holiday she made for it!). For a pictorial archive of this year's pies, browse on through and enjoy!

I made a candy apple cream pie.
