Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is a staple in my home not only during Thanksgiving, but all throughout the fall season. The warm flavors of pumpkin pie spice and the creamy texture of squash-enriched pie are practically synonymous with autumn. As much as I enjoy a classic pumpkin pie, I also enjoy the many forms that it can take, from Maple Pumpkin Pie┬áto my Two-Layer Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake. ... Read More »

White Chocolate Cream Pie

Vanilla Bean White Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate cream pie is an indulgent choice for dessert any time of the year. Made with plenty of chocolate, the filling can range from milk chocolate to dark chocolate to suit the preferences of the chef.

Chocolate-Striped Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie and make several every year throughout the holiday baking season. The creamy texture of a good pumpkin pie coupled with the warm spices of fall makes for the perfect seasonal dessert. But I don’t always make the same recipe every time I bake a pie using pumpkin. After all, a traditional pumpkin pie can get a little boring after a while ... Read More »

Other versions don’t use enough vanilla, producing a pie that is creamy, but bland. This pie, of course, doesn’t have any of these failings and that is what makes it my Ultimate Vanilla Banana Cream ... Read More »

Strawberry Hand Pies

Strawberry Hand Pies

Strawberries are in season and the ones I’ve had this year taste better than ever. I’ve been eating them on my cereal and churning them into ice cream, as well as making classics like strawberry shortcake. Strawberries are often incorporated into dishes where they don’t have to be cooked, since the juicy berries give off a lot of liquid and tend to lose their shape ... Read More »

Vanilla Cream Pie with Vanilla Meringue

Vanilla Custard Pie

Cream pies come in all flavors – from chocolate to coconut – but there is one flavor that you don’t see all that often: vanilla. While I will take a slice of cream pie in just about any flavor you would like to serve me, there is something simple and satisfying about a Vanilla Cream Pie that you just don’t get with other flavors. This ... Read More »
