Girl Scout Cookie season is nearing an end, but they will live on in my heart forever. So forever, that I made a pie you can make year-round with those babies. Thin Mint Chocolate Pie. It's rich, it's cool, it's what I want from Girl Scouts. I'll tell you a secret: these aren't even Thin Mints! They're Grasshopper cookies by Keebler. Sold at your local grocery store all year long. I think these taste better than Thin Mints and are a heckofalot cheaper too! I keep them in the refrigerator . . .
Tis the season for pie!!!! With the holidays right around the corner I wanted to offer up an easy alternative to your traditional pie. A slab pie has all of the components of a regular pie, except it feeds a crowd. A slab pie is perfect for a big family gathering or a friends-giving. I created this recipe from start to finish with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. My kitchenAid mixer is a staple in my kitchen. Besides cakes and cookies, I love to shred chicken and make dips and frostings in . . .
Well this dessert is going to rock your socks! Simple enough to whip up the morning before your barbecue, yet delicious enough to make everyone go back for seconds. I recently made this fresh strawberry pie for some neighbors we had over for dessert. Their cute little boy ate it up and kept asking for more. Licking his lips he said, "Oh this is good! Mom will you please get the recipe?" I was flattered of course, but then again I knew it would be good! And if your wondering if this is the . . .
It's time to serve the best pie of the year. I'm on a toasted marshmallow kick, and for a good reason. It's a flavor that you really can't get anywhere else. It's insta-nostalgia, and who can argue with nostalgia? Give me burnt chicken with toasted marshmallow and I'll call it the dreamiest chicken I ever did have (mostly because I've shared burnt chicken over a campfire and washed down with some toasted 'mallow s'mores many a time--and that was only because my climbing and biking and . . .
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is famous for it's creamy, tart and sweet filling. Pair it with Grandma's flakey crust and you have a winner. This is the perfect for any occasion- especially on Thanksgiving when you have a pumpkin pie hater in the crowd. This recipe is my Sister-in-law family's recipe. It's been handed down, tried and tested- and is hand down the best! You can serve this pie when rhubarb and strawberries are fresh in season. Rhubarb is grown in green house and can be found all year . . .
EVERY Thankgiving my husband asks for Pecan pie. He comes from southern roots and loves ( LOVES) a good Peeee-can Pie. Or is it Pe-con Pie? Well either way, he loves it. I've tried making them all, the chocolate, the "light karo-syrup" versions, the "dark karo-syrup" versions, the grocery store versions (wink wink) in the end he has decided that he loves the ol' fashion (nothing crazy added in) Pecan Pie's. So here it goes. I like to make my own pie crusts. Why? Because they are easy . . .
Apple pie is one of those pies that even pie haters love. Its always good to have a nice, classic (but amazing) apple pie recipe in your recipe box. This is one I have been making for years. It's my kids favorite kind of pie. WELL scratch that, they really like chocolate pie. I'd say apple and chocolate pie tie in the running for very favorite pie. The ingredients are for one pie, and same with the instructions in the recipe card. But if you have mini pie plates, or mini pie liners like I . . .
I don't like pie. I just don't! I do love fruit, but if you're going to splurge on dessert, make it count with chocolate, caramel, and/or peanut butter. But my Grandma Moon makes one the only pies I look forward to. Cherry. This isn't your grab-a-can-of-cherry-pie-filling-and-slop-it-in-a-pan cherry pie, this is the next level. She made this every Thanksgiving and it's insta-nostalgia for me. Every time I make this, people ask for the recipe. The ingredients list is so simple, but . . .
I LOVE my Grandma Harding's pies. I love her Cherry Pie. But I've never really had to make it- cause she has always made it. This year I am not privileged to be visiting my Grandma Harding and eating her amazing pies. In past years I've watched her pie crust be made, but now is the time to do it myself. It so yummy and surprisingly easy. I think I just expected something that good to be so hard. With that being said, I know I could use practice on these things. Love Thanksgiving and pie. . . .
