Peach-Raspberry Pie

Peach-Raspberry Pie

It’s summer – so of course I want to bake pies. Yes, I want to make time-intensive recipes that involve running the oven for about an hour, during the hottest part of the year. I’m not sure why I’m drawn to baking when it’s 105F […]

The Cookie-Cake-Pie

The Cookie-Cake-Pie

For the past two Super Bowls, I’ve made stadium cakes. The sheer quantity of food that those produce would overwhelm the number of people we’d have over for the Super Bowl this year. Still, the Super Bowl is the perfect time for ridiculous, over-the-top food. […]

Chocolate Chip Pie

My friend and coworker Sue enjoyed making lots of yummy things and bringing them in to work to share. She was a consistent reader of my blog, always excited to check it and see what I was baking. I often thought about her when I […]

Ginger-Pumpkin Pie with Toasted Coconut

Ginger-Pumpkin Pie with Toasted Coconut

I’m a little behind the times on making Ginger-Pumpkin Pie with Toasted Coconut. Pumpkin pie belongs in the fall, in October and November as you prepare for Thanksgiving and cool temperatures. It’s not my family’s tradition, but you might even spring for a pumpkin pie […]

Impossible Pie

Impossible Pie

All of a sudden, it’s warm, summery weather. So what do I feel a compulsion to make? Pie. Actually, what I really want is a cool cream pie. But to make a from-scratch cream pie, I have to stand over the stove stirring a custard […]

Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

This recipe was #366 of my 365-new-recipe-challenge of 2010. I really wanted to find a different pecan pie recipe to make for Christmas, but realized that I don’t actually have a standard pecan pie recipe. I just wanted to make sure that the pie I […]

229: Key Lime Pie

229: Key Lime Pie

I wanted to make a very easy, cool, refreshing pie when we had company in town one weekend, and I figured there wasn’t much easier or refreshing than Key Lime Pie. The weather was warm, so I chose the recipe from the Joy of Baking […]

225: Easy as Silk Pie

225: Easy as Silk Pie

I’ve been on a pie kick this summer. When my friend Jason posted the recipe for Easy as Silk Pie, a simpler re-imagining of French Silk Pie, I decided that I didn’t want to wait too long to make this recipe. The simplicity of this […]
