Banoffee Pie

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…

Two Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie

Another pie? Why not!? Because I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie extravaganza. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese & the top, a more sedate pumpkin pie layer. The Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream? It stole the show.

Our Favorite Pumpkin Pie – the correct Pam Anderson’s recipe

In honor of Thanksgiving, I’m reposting with new photos! Years ago, my son & I were in a pretty severe accident – my then 14 year old daughter made a good portion of the Thanksgiving dinner on her own, while I talked her through – from my bed. She’s always had a great talent for cooking.

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie

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.

Frozen Lemonade Pie – 4 Ingredient

I found this little oddity of a recipe in my Mom’s recipe box, credited to my Aunt Mary. I think I have some very vague memories of this Frozen Lemonade Pie when we used to share a cabin at “The Lakes.”

My Grandmother’s Pie Crust

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.
