Classic Coconut Custard Pie

Coconut Custard Pie

As a fan of coconut, I like it in most types of desserts and baked goods. This includes cakes, cookies, muffins and pies. 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 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 Apple Pie, innards

Nifty Pie Baking Combo Rack

Nifty Pie Baking Combo Rack

A freshly baked fruit pie, full of tender apples or juicy berries, is one of the most delicious things that you can pull out of your oven. Unfortunately, when you are baking a fruit pie, you are often left with drips and splatters of fruit juice and filling that have bubbled over the edges of your pie pastry. My solution to this is to place ... Read More »

Chicago Metallic Individual Pie Mold Pan

Chicago Metallic Pie Mold Pan

As much as I like Breville’s Personal Pie Maker, I’m not yet sure that I need another appliance in my kitchen – even if it is an appliance that specializes in pies. I can certainly make room for a new pan, however, and Chicago Metallic’s Pie Mold Pan is a good middle ground. This pan has cavities for four individual pies, and while they’re larger ...
