Impossible Coconut Custard Pie Cupcakes

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie

During the fall, one of my favorite recipes to make is for my Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes. They’re pumpkin pie in a unique single-serving format that is perfect for pumpkin lovers who don’t want to make a traditional pie every single time they want a pumpkin dessert. The cupcakes also don’t need a crust, so they’re quicker and easier to make than that traditional pie. ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

The only thing better than a freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookie is a freshly baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie. This may be called a “pie,” but I am using that term loosely because this is really a giant cookie that is baked in a pie plate. Baking the cookie in this unusual – unusual for a cookie, anyway – pan gives it a ... Read More »

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

This is a recipe that I found on a hand-typed recipe card (as in, it was typed on a typewriter) tucked inside of one of my grandmother’s cookbooks. I definitely don’t recall my grandmother ever making it, but clearly she liked it enough to take the time to type out the recipe to preserve it, instead of simply jotting down the ingredients on the back ...

Bite Size Salted Caramel Pecan Pies

Bite Size Salted Caramel Pecan Pies

Most pecan pies have a gooey, syrupy center that lacks flavor because they are made with corn syrup. This syrup gives the pies a smooth texture, but I prefer to use things like maple syrup and honey because they give the finished pie a lot more flavor than corn syrup would and they showcase the pecans wonderfully. I’m a big salted caramel fna and it ... Read More »

Crustless Ginger Pear Custard Pie

Pear Custard Pie

The pie crust can be the best part of a pie, with a light and flaky texture that adds crunch to a pie filling and helps hold everything together. Pie crust is also the bane of many pie-bakers’ existences and there are many people out there who simply avoid baking pies to avoid having to make a pie crust. This Crustless Ginger Pear Custard Pie ... Read More »

Brûléed Pumpkin Pie

Brulee Pumpkin Pie

Creme brûlées are a dessert that never goes out of style. The silky custard is rich and satisfying, but it is that crackly, caramelized top that keeps people ordering it again and again. Creme brûlées aren’t the only dessert where you can brûlée the top and that same caramel layer can instantly elevate other desserts as well. This Brûléed Pumpkin Pie is the perfect example, ...

Cherry Pie Pops

_DSC2708-001

Pie pops are the pie version of cake pops: one or two bite pies that are on top of a stick. Pie pops are very cute to look at and they’re not difficult to make, so they are a great choice when you’re looking to do something a little bit less traditional with your pies – or simply want to put a bite-sized treat out ...

Plum and Black Grape Hand Pies

Plum and Grape Hand Pies

Grapes are in season during the fall, but don’t get used as much in baking as some other end of summer and fall fruits. Grapes can actually be a fantastic fruit to bake with because they have a lot of natural sugar, so they become very tender and especially sweet when they are cooked. In these Plum and Black Grape Hand Pies, I combined fresh ... Read More »
