Beltane, a Gaelic festival, celebrates the coming of summer. The name derives from the Gaelic word for May. The holiday is celebrated on May 1 in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Foods eaten represent the fertility of the Earth–eggs, creme and berries are prevalent. Sugar pie is a “summer” pie and reminiscent of pecan pie filling, minus the nuts. It was a huge hit with my children! It would be fabulous with some macerated berries alongside.
Ingredients:
1 8-inch pie crust, uncooked
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients (other than pie shell) and stir until smooth. Pour into pastry shell.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 45 minutes longer.

Lauren Capitani was an early foodie. While her friends were busy watching Family Ties , she was tuned into Graham Kerr and Yan Can Cook, and served her friends and family dishes such as beef wellington and baked alaska while still a teen. After college, Lauren received Masters' degrees in both journalism and business and worked in both subsequent fields. At 29, she decided to rewrite her life and became an assistant teacher. For the first time, her vocation became her avocation. She now has certification in both both elementary and early childhood education and has taught at seven schools on both coasts (and in between). Lauren has lived summers in France, England, Spain, Japan, and Thailand, and has visited more than a dozen other countries. When her own children start limiting their food choices, Lauren turned it into a teaching moment and created One World Whisk, a global cooking initiative for children. The project garnered more than 200 followers before its one-month charter was complete.
