There was a time, when I was a youngster, I didn’t like cherry pie. Or pretty much cherry anything. I couldn’t really “get it” because I love cherries. If you’ve noticed the same thing, this is going to rock your world.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.”
