Cheat Day Recipes for National Pie Day

Cindy | January 23, 2020

If there's one day of the week that you look forward to outside of the weekend, it's a food cheat day! Some prefer these to be on the weekend, while others want it to fall during a dreaded day at the office. (Hello, Uber Eats!) In honor of National Pie Day today, January 23rd, we're sharing with you the ultimate cheat day recipes that involve a big ol' slice of pie. 

Bacon Blueberry Mini Pies

Yes, you read that right - BACON blueberry is the flavor combination that your sweet treats have been missing! No fancy pie crust here, all you need is pre-made pie crust from the grocery store and a muffin pan to make these adorable bite-sized treats. Pro tip: add blueberry juice on top for an extra drizzle of flavor!

Easy Strawberry Pie

Have a little fun in the kitchen with the pie crust - try one half fully covered and the other with ribbon slices. The possibilities are endless, so why not make it a fun family competition? Post the winners on social media and tag Cal Giant! 

Blueberry Basil Lemon Meringue Mini Pies

For those oh-so-cute Saturday brunches, this dessert is a must! You can swap out the blueberries for any of our California Giant berries for a personalized mini pie for each of your guests. Each bite is a different texture, from the crushed cookies to creamy lemon meringue... cheat day can't come fast enough!

A lot of people ask about "the person behind the posts" on The Buzz. Who is THAT knowledgeable about all things berry-related?
