Individual Cranberry Apple Pies

Individual Cranberry Apple Pie, sliced

You can’t go wrong with apple pie for any occasion and this is especially true when it comes to miniature pies. Mini pies give you the option of having a whole pie (that you can actually eat in one sitting!) all to yourself, and a stockpile of other little pies that you can either share or pop into the freezer for later. These Individual Cranberry ... Read More »

Impossible Pecan Pie Cupcakes are the perfect dessert for anyone who loves pecan pie, whether you’re looking for an easier version of your favorite dessert or simply want to try a new twist on it.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

A great pumpkin pie should have a creamy, rich texture, a great pumpkin flavor and a good balance of spices to it. It shouldn’t be overly dense, heavy or coarsely textured. I am a big fan of pumpkin pie – especially during fall or close to Thanksgiving – and I love making it at home. This is my Perfect Pumpkin Pie, one that I’ve tweaked ... Read More »

Also like pumpkin pie, many sweet potato pies tend ... Read More »

Mini Apple Pies

Mini Apple Pie, innards

The only thing better than a slice of freshly baked apple pie is having a whole pie all to yourself. That said, it can be a little daunting (and probably a little unfair to everyone else who wants a slice of pie!) to tuck into an entire 9-inch apple pie with no one to share it with. The solution is to bake a half dozen ... Read More »

Buttermilk Lime Pie

Buttermilk Lime Pie

Buttermilk pie is a favorite of mine around fall and in the winter. The pie is something of a Southern classic, and although I am not from the South, it is definitely a well-liked comfort food dessert to have when the weather starts to cool down. Buttermilk pie is essentially a custard pie made with tangy, buttery buttermilk as the primary dairy component. They’re often ... Read More »

Peach Crumble Pie

Peaches and Cream Pie

Peaches and cream is a great flavor combination, no matter what type of cream you’re using. My grandmother was fond of serving peaches and ricotta or cottage cheese with a little sugar on top. I like peaches and ice cream or cream anglaise. I also quite like this Peach Crumble Pie, where the peaches are suspended in a lightly sweetened custard made with sour cream. ... Read More »

Classic Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate cream pie is a pie for chocolate lovers. Most chocolate cream pies have a pudding-like chocolate filling that is made on the stovetop and poured into a prebaked pie crust. The pies are easy to make, but are subject to a huge amount of variation. Some actually are filled with pudding, rendering them very difficult to slice and making the crusts soggy. Some are ...
