Chocolate Cream Pie

Over the past few years I’ve made a lot of chocolate cream pies, and one thing I discovered was that I really like the ones made with evaporated milk. It gives the filling a slick, smooth texture, plus it doesn’t taste overly rich. Not that there’s anything wrong with cream pies made with heavy cream […]

Chocolate Mallow Malt Pie

A few years ago a friend sent me a vintage copy of Best of the Bake-Off Collection, a book with 1,000 Bake-Off recipes dating back to the fifties. It’s a fun little cookbook, and was the inspiration for this pie. The book doesn’t give the year, but the original recipe is credited to Ruth Lasky […]

Chocolate Irish Cream Pie

Thanks to Pinterest, picking a St. Patrick’s Day dessert is completely overwhelming! It used to be you could Google up something cute, tasty and green and then head to the kitchen. Now there are about a gazillion different variations on Irish Cream, green colored thingies, MINT, Guinness, etc. etc. etc. I finally got tired of […]

New and Improved Earl’s Chocolate Pie

Earl's Chocolate Pie

My old photo of Earl’s Chocolate Pie was in desperate need of a makeover, and in some ways so was the recipe even though it’s become one of my favorite pies. I’ve made the filling multiple times and it gets five stars for convenience, texture and affordability. I also appreciate that it calls for evaporated […]

Chocolate and Kahlua Cream Pie

‘Tis the season for boozy coffee drinks and desserts, so here’s a pie I made yesterday using Kahlua. I was kind of lucky in that the Kahlua and all of the other ingredients were things I had on hand, but the pie was so good I wouldn’t hesitate to go out and buy all the […]

Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Chocolate Cream Pie

Our oven is still out of commission. We’ve replaced a sensor, a broil element and had the control board examined by control board specialists, but it’s still taking an unacceptable amount of time to preheat. The new theory is that the bake element is broken, so I have to wait until Friday to have that […]

Chocolate Cream Pie

Have you started thinking about pie crust yet? I use to obsess over it this time of year trying to remember which of my gazillion recipes is the best, but I guess I’m mellowing  with age because these days I’m happy with one. Okay, two. The two recipes that have garnered the most compliments are […]

It’s here! It’s Happy National Pie Day! And if you still haven’t chosen a pie for this evening, here’s another suggestion. It’s based on an old Bake-Off recipe and goes by the name “Vienna Pie” because it has the flavors of coffee and cinnamon. The beauty of this pie is that you mix everything together, […]
