Key Lime Pie Slice

Could this be the best Key lime pie in America? I don’t know, but it might just be a contender. Our family loved it (it kind of reminded me of Fleming’s Steak House Key Lime Pie), and the American Pie Council awarded the recipe 1st place in the Citrus category of the National Pie Championships. […]

Vienna Pie Slice

It’s nice when a new kitchen gadget actually does what it’s supposed to do, which is why I am dedicating this post to the Slice Solutions 9-Inch Sectioned Pie Pan Set. It’s a 9 inch pie pan with a top and bottom that separate in springform fashion, and has a divider insert that you put […]

Raspberry Cream Pie

Today’s recipe is from Nick Malgieri’s Pastry: Foolproof Recipes for the Home Cook. From top to bottom, it has a layer of vanilla flavored whipped cream, cooked raspberries, a simple (and very good) vanilla pastry cream and an interesting pie crust made with flour, salt, baking powder, butter and eggs – no water. In fact, […]

Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is one of our favorites and I think I’ve made at least 20 different variations.  The one I’ve been making most often is a version that uses sour cream and doesn’t have eggs, so I was really curious to see how a pie made with 6 (!) eggs would compare. The eggs […]

Chocolate Cream Pie

Having grown up in Texas, I’ve eaten at Luby’s Cafeteria more times than I can count. They’ve updated the menu to include healthier fare such as salads and grilled meat, but one thing that hasn’t changed much is their dessert section. Part of the fun of going through the line is and always has …

Peach Pie

In the mood for some peach pie? If that’s a yes, here’s the perfect recipe. The original version was on Taste of Home, and what was interesting was that it called for rendering the juice from the peaches, boiling the juice with cornstarch to make a gel, then folding it back in with the peaches […]

Millionaire Pie

This pie is a family favorite, yet there are so many variations I’m not sure I’ve ever made it the same way twice. This version, our special Labor Day Weekend dessert, calls for cream cheese, pineapple and whipped cream. It’s also a little different in that it uses a baked pastry crust instead of graham. […]
