Honey Roasted Carrot Pie | Indianapolis Food Blogger


When the weather turns cool and the leaves change, my desire to bake is increased. There is just something about the flavors of Fall. Whether it be Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cider, Roasted Vegetables, the warmth of my favorite sweater, all of these things are in abundance in my home. I simply can’t get enough. And thanks to Indiana weather, I started a bit early this year. Fall baking has been going down in my house since early September and it is getting me ready for one of my favorite Holidays-Thanksgiving. It’s the love of food and family that fuels this holiday for me.

Family is one of the reasons I love being in the kitchen. A few weeks ago, while chatting with my grandfather, I learned of a family recipe for Carrot Pie. Carrot Pie? What? This literally never crossed my mind, and I’m a lover of carrots. I sneak them into almost everything at home. After hearing that my great-grandmother made this for our family often, I had to try it out. To the kitchen I went. I came up with Honey Roasted Carrot Pie, and let me tell you: it’s delightful! Rustic, sweet, yet savory. This pie is sure to become a Fall favorite.
