5 Savory Pies and Tarts

Soul-warming dishes for fall


Savory pies, tarts and turnovers are delicious warm-me-up dishes as we enter the chillier fall season. Their flaky, crispy crusts and warm, herbed fillings provide perfect refuge from a crisp fall day.

As the days grow shorter, there just doesn't seem to be much better than a warm piece of a savory pie. Fitting for brunches, lunches and dinners alike, these tasty tartlets will leave your taste buds happy and your tummy warmed.

And don't worry about excess pie crust. A good smear of butter, light sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar and a quick bake in the oven make for an easy and delicious after dinner treat.
