Mom’s Spinach & Swiss Cheese Pie

28 Nov

Imagine a buttery piecrust with chewy ivory ribbons and a leafy forest green filling. This

unusual childhood treat carries a delicious aroma that still lures us to the dining table. In the fall of the 80s, as neighborhood friends visited our home with transforming dolls and ice cream truck treats, my mother baked our favorite pie.
As she pulled the pie from the oven, the edible perfume filled our house with a scent so savory you could taste the air. And when the fragrance found our noses, we trailed the scent of garlic and butter. As if under a spell, the pie guided us to the heart of our home – the kitchen. Our little feet stood on their toes as we got a glimpse of what is known as a culinary legend in our family – spinach pie.
