Grandma’s Mincemeat

My paternal grandma’s mincemeat pie was a much sought after item by relatives close and far on my dad’s side of the family.  It was not turned down on my mom’s side of the family either 🙂  It was a staple at the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table. She and my parents tweaked her original […]

Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

My sister was the peanut butter pie maker in my house back in the day. Her peanut butter pies not only won her a ribbon at a 4-H competition, but they were frequently requested by family and friends. The easiest version of peanut butter pie she made was a frozen peanut butter pie. It may […]

Grandma’s Blackberry Pie and Cobbler

My mom and maternal grandmother made the best blackberry pies and cobblers. Although I was only nine when my grandmother died, I still remember how wonderful her blackberry cobbler tasted. Her cobbler was a double crust of pie dough in a 9 X 13-ish pan. I know that she made blackberry cobblers more often than […]

Cream Cheese Pie Crust

My mom used to make this cream cheese pie crust; she only made it for just one recipe…pecan teasers.  I never considered using it for anything else until talking about pie crust ideas for a tomato pie with a friend one day. I don’t know why I had not thought of it before. it was a […]

Oatmeal Pie

The only place I have ever had Oatmeal Pie is in the Amish Country of Ohio. I read that it is/was popular in the southern United States as well. However, I have never found it on a menu since moving to the South more than six years ago. It does remind me of pecan pie, […]

Grandma’s Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls

I remember being about my daughter’s current age, eight, and being taught by my paternal grandmother how to make pie crusts. My favorite part was helping her get the flour from the Hoosier cabinet’s flour bin by turning the handle to sift the flour into the container to be measured. My second favorite part was […]

Cookie Crumb Pie Crust

Inspired to make a different type of pie crust for an amaretto cream pie, I decided to try and make a crumb crust using almond spice cookies. The result was delicious. I have found that most crisp cookies work well in this basic, simple recipe.  I make either one deep dish pie or two standard […]

Amaretto Cream Pie

A few years ago, my husband insisted we go to the Mt. Vernon Restaurant in Chattanooga, Tennessee for my birthday.   As it had always been our tradition for the birthday person to pick the restaurant,  I was not happy about going…to say the least.  To try and calm me, he explained he had been there […]

Lemon Meringue Pie

Perhaps this pie should come with a warning: Beware that eating this pie may result in your not wanting any other lemon meringue pie again. Alright, I may be biased because it is one of the pies my mom made, but there have been other people who ate this pie and later said they other […]

Rhubarb “Custard” Pie

Rhubarb seems to often get paired with strawberries. I know that it is in “season” with strawberries, but I really enjoy rhubarb in a more solo form either as a compote or or in my mom’s rhubarb “custard” pie. I must admit that the use of custard in the name of her pie recipe is […]
