The Pie Society, is an Austin, Texas based pie bakery that offers complimentary delivery of the freshly baked pastries within a defined delivery area. Although, if your address doesn’t end with one of the designated zip codes, you could always ask nicely, and the bakers just might make an exception.

After all, nobody should have to go without pie.

Lindsay Leslie,  a.k.a. Pie Momma, is a co-founder of The Pie Society with Emily Kealey, a.k.a. Pie Maid. In addition to a selection of sweet pies, the duo offers savory pastries, too.

Lindsay agreed to share one of her favorite savory recipes with us for National Pie Month. She said, “Our savory recipe is one of my favorites… my kids LOVE it; plus, it sneaks in those vegetables!

I say when vegetables taste this good, who needs to sneak.
