Pies & Tarts
I’ve been having such fun the past few months playing with pies and crusts that I just can’t seem to stop myself. Not that I actually want to, because they’ve seemed to have struck a chord with people, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have several more ideas in mind for decorated pies and crusts, so I hope you’ll stay tuned. But first up is this one for Festive Coconut Banana Custard Pie with a Holly Berry Crust.
When it’s time for dessert, and you want to impress but not spend hours in the kitchen preparing, then these […]
Our lives are so much busier during the holiday season. With cooking, baking, shopping, and entertaining, who’s got time to whip up a fancy pie?!?! YOU do! Since this beauty takes advantage of store-bought pie dough and takes virtually no painting or artistic ability (honest), anyone will be successful at making this Delightfully Colorful Autumn Leaves Crusted Apple Pie.
I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.
The recipe I’m sharing today for Chocolate Pecan Pies Bars is from fellow food blogger friend, Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More, who sadly died unexpectedly only a few short months ago. To say that the food blogging world was knocked off its axis into a world of shock and disbelief, is an understatement.
Beyond the flavor of these bars, what you’re really going to love is how fast and easy they are to assemble, and bake. There is no electric mixer required and the ingredients are basic refrigerator and pantry staples such as flour, sugar, butter, eggs, strawberry jam and a handful of fresh strawberries. These bars are so easy to make that even a novice baker can turn these out like a pro, and then stand back and take a big bow because you’ll be hearing some applause.
The recipe I’m sharing with you today uses homemade lemon curd (but as I stated earlier, store bought will also work) which is a combination of eggs, sugar, freshly squeezed lemon juice and butter. It’s very simple to make as long as you use a double boiler and heat the mixture slowly on the stovetop.
My parents were coming for dinner, so I wanted to make something simple for dessert with ingredients I already had on hand in my pantry and fridge. I took out the package of frozen pie dough and let it thaw on the counter as I pondered in my head what I would do with it.
This pumpkin pie is traditional…with a twist. Graham crackers and cornflake crumbs combine together to make an out of this […]
