Gifts for the Pie Lover from Food52

The challenge, thrown down by Food52er AntoniaJames: Pair Food52 recipes with products from Provisions for extra-thoughtful holiday gift giving this year. We whittled down 5 favorites and are announcing them every day this week, to help inspire your own.

Today, we present our fourth winner, Beth Carroll. Beth, inspired by the canceled-too-soon pie-centered TV show Pushing Daisies, created an edible gift that centers around pie -- just as all of life should. Beth is gifting our PieBox, wrapped in a Café Apron, with a Brown Butter and Cheddar Apple Pie. "The characters deliver their pies in a boxes tied up with twine that remind me very much of the PieBox in the Provisions shop, and the Café Apron reminds me just of the apron the piemaker wears in his kitchen," Beth told us.

We love this idea, and have a new favorite TV show in the making. First, make this:

Brown Butter and Cheddar Apple Pie by Midge

Then, wrap it up in style.
