Lemon Chess Pie

Lemon Chess Pie

A chess pie is a classic southern recipe. The basic pie has a simple filling of eggs, sugar, butter and flour or cornmeal, and it is often flavored with a little lemon or vanilla. The origin of the name is a bit muddled, and the most cited story is that “chess” is derived from “cheese” because this pie has a texture similar to cheesecake – ... Read More »

Baking Bites’ Pie Week 2012

Pie Week Image

As far as I’m concerned, there is no bad time for pie. There are so many variations of pie – sweet and savory, baked and chilled, fruit and chocolate – that you can find one for every season and every occasion. That said, it is very clear that fall is pie season and even people who don’t eat pie any other time of the year ... Read More »

Split Decision Pie Pan

Split Decision Pie

There are times when a whole pie is just too much. Pie is always delicious, of course, but when there are only two people to eat that pie, it can be tough to get through a whole 9-inch pie without the crust getting soggy and it loosing some of its deliciousness. There are also times when you might not want to bake a whole pie ... Read More »

Coconut cream pie is probably the most common type of coconut pie you’ll find. It is made with a pudding-like filling that is packed with shredded coconut and poured into a prebaked pie shell, very similar to a chocolate cream pie. Coconut ... Read More »

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 »

Nordic Ware Covered Pie Pan

Covered Pie Pan

When you bake a pie to bring to a family dinner or a potluck, how to you carry it with you? I’ve done everything from covering the top of the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil to sticking the pie plate into a cake carrier. My favorite way to transport a pie is to leave it uncovered and hold it myself, or have someone ... 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 »
