You know how people love talking about their “Love Languages”? Like, the specific way you most feel loved in a relationship, such as words of affirmation, gifts, service, etc.? Well, apparently there are 5 of them, but I’m here to tell those love experts that they missed a BIG one: PIE. Pie is mostly assuredly my love language, and y’all, Iove it all. Make it creamy, nutty, fruity, chocolaty, frozen or hot out of the oven, it doesn’t matter, if it’s pie, it’s for me.
Since pie is my love language, I love sending people home with their own slice of the goodness. So today, I am sharing my easy tutorial for making pie slice boxes so you can share the love! I mean, in this house, fall is the beginning of pie season and I love having one to take to the get-togethers and parties that come around the holidays, or pulling one from the oven or freezer when we have people over. That is why I am a BIG fan of Edwards Desserts. You can find their indulgent, thaw-and-serve crème pies in the frozen desserts aisle all over the country and when you taste a slice of these babies, you won’t know what hit you. SO delish.
Let’s get to the good stuff:
Pie Box Template
Glue Gun + Glue Sticks
- Print off two of the pie templates (one for the bottom and one for the lid) on the solid cardstock. Cut on the solid lines.
2. Fold along the dotted lines, then glue the three small folded flaps and press them to the inside of the box.
3. Cut a circle that is a little bit larger than the box out of the patterned paper. Glue it to the top of the lid of the box.
4. Line the bottom of the box with wax paper, place in a piece of pie, then cover with the lid. Then, wrap with baker’s twine and secure on the bottom with a dot of glue.
That’s it! Aren’t they cute? Now you’re ready to spread some pie love! (Only the truest kind of love.)
I love filling my boxes with slices of Edwards Turtle Pie! This baby has a smooth caramel filling infused with rich caramel, and it’s topped with chocolate, pecans, and whipped crème rosettes on a fresh-from-the-oven chocolate cookie crumb crust. It is one of the sweetest, creamiest, crunchiest, most delightful things in a crust. You look at that gorgeous pie! Mouth. Watering.
These pie boxes are so fun for sending home leftovers for your guests, or as favors at a party, or for delivering holiday treats to your people! Fill them with one of Edwards Desserts delicious pie slices and you’ve made their pie season for sure.
