Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie

Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie

There isn’t really anything that signals summer’s beginning more than Rhubarb. I’m just crazy about it ever since I was a kid and we’d sit under the honeysuckle bushes dipping stalks of rhubarb into our blue melamine sugar bowl. And I’m even crazier about this Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie.

Banoffee Pie - such caramelly deliciousness - and super easy, too!

I remember hearing about Banoffee Pie decades ago – but what I didn’t know then was just how EASY this is to make. And it’s soooo Caramelly Toffee Banana goodness. A shortbread crust, a good thick layer of Dulce de Leche, bananas and whipping cream touched with coffee. All those wasted years…

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie. A bit of work but this is HEAVEN!!

Tomato Pie’s been on my bucket list for a while! I know – strange, right? Well, maybe not if you have a ton of tomatoes, and maybe not if you’re from the South. Or maybe not if you watch Paula Dean. But this isn’t quite that tomato pie. This is a Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie, and you’ll want to serve it for lunch or dinner, maybe with a simple green salad.

My Grandmother’s Pie Crust

This is an easy pie crust - has vinegar AND an egg! So old, it originally calls for lard, but butter or shortening both work fine.

I might have to clarify on this recipe: This is just ONE of my Grandmother’s pie crusts. She was a great baker of pies. People fought over her pies. Seriously. I chose this very old-fashioned crust for my Sour Cream Raisin Pie because I believe both to be from around the same era. It’s delish, a bit like a shortbread and quite a bit different from the recipes I’ve seen or used.
