Appreciation Pie Recipe: Baking Gratitude for the Holidays

Appreciation Pie Recipe: Baking Gratitude for the Holidays

It’s the season of homemade pies and cookies, my friends. Admittedly I’m not a baker, but I absolutely love to indulge in sweet treats. And what’s sweeter than gratitude?

Gratitude isn’t just about being polite—it’s the secret ingredient to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. There are many studies that say keeping a gratitude journal, expressing your thanks to others, and meditating on positive experiences has the power to improve your mental and physical health as well as foster deeper connections with others.

Grab your apron and your favorite pen because today we're whipping up Appreciation Pie and serving it to your loved ones via handwritten greeting cards. Let's mix up some love, nostalgia, and thanks-giving and enjoy the sweet aroma of gratitude. 

Appreciation Pie Recipe


  • Bundle of Blank Greeting Cards (the flaky, golden pie crust)

  • 1 Cup of Love (the rich and sweet filling)

  • 1 Cup of Appreciation (sugary goodness)

  • Spoonful of Memories (wholesome nostalgia)

  • Sprinkle of Warmth and Kindness (the finishing touch)


  1. Begin by taking a moment to prep and reflect. Think about the people, experiences, and moments that have had a positive impact on you. Make a list of all the people you want to send a note of gratitude to this holiday season.

  1. Preheat your heart by gathering your thoughts about each recipient. Are you grateful for their kindness, unwavering support, sense of humor, or simply the joy they bring to your life?

  1. Prepare the crust by grabbing a stack of your favorite blank greeting cards. Consider cards designed specifically for gratitude, kindness, and thanksgiving. Start writing!

  1. Mix together the cups of love and appreciation until they’re perfectly blended. Just hearing from you will make your loved one smile, but how can you make this sweet treat even more memorable?

  1. Stir in a spoonful of memories like you would a dash of cinnamon. This will be the wholesome nostalgia that they savor with every bite.

  1. Sprinkle on some warm wishes and kindness like a comforting hug. Enjoy the sweet aroma of gratitude baked to perfection.

  1. Seal each card like you would the edges of a pie, keeping all the goodness inside. Hand-deliver or mail your card with a smile, knowing how much this sweet treat will brighten their day.

Just like a delicious homemade pie, your gratitude and appreciation will leave everyone wanting to know where they can get the recipe to share with their family and friends. Bon appétit!
