Favorite Pies!

Here is what I am making to take for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with delicious PIES!

Lemon Truffle Pie

Lemon Truffle Pie is a tart, sweet, creamy addition for any occasion. This has become a favorite to make whenever we get together as a family.

Cherry Apple Pie

Cherry Apple Pie is a three-generation family favorite. In fact, when it is my oldest son’s birthday, this is his request instead of cake.

Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Pie

Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Pie is a chocolate lover’s delight! Totally worth the work and the calories.

Pumpkin Eggnog Pie

My Pumpkin Eggnog Pie has one simple change to the old favorite, substitute eggnog for the milk in the good ol’ pumpkin pie recipe. For another flavorful twist, this year I think I will put the filling in a ginger snap crumb crust.

Old Fashioned Raisin Pie

This recipe for Old Fashioned Raisin Pie is my dad’s favorite, it is also one of the most viewed recipes on my website.

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Fudge Cream Pie is a recipe I made up back in 2012. If you love peanut butter, chocolate and pie, your tastebuds will be very happy!

Raspberries & Cream Bars

This recipe uses pie filling and cream cheese to make a fabulous dessert bar.

Raspberries & Cream Bars

Batter:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs

Cream Cheese Layer:

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Mix in flour and salt. Spread half the batter into the bottom of sprayed 13″x9″ baking pan.

Prepare Cream Cheese Layer: Beat cream cheese and sugar. Mix in vanilla and egg. Spread evenly over batter layer in pan. Spread raspberry pie filling gently over cheesecake layer. Drop remaining batter over the pie filling. (It will spread as it bakes, don’t worry if it doesn’t cover all the pie filling). Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until top is light golden-brown. Cool completely. Once cooled, whisk together glaze ingredients and drizzle over top. Cut into bars when glaze is set.

Blackberry Sweet Rolls

I can never get enough sweet rolls. This recipe is regular homemade sweet rolls with blackberry pie filling over the top. Try raspberry or lemon, whatever you are craving.

Blackberry Sweet Rolls

Blackberry Sweet Rolls 1  Blackberry Sweet Rolls 2
1¼ cups warm water (110°)
2½ tsp (1 pkt) dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbl oil
3½ cups flour
1½ tsp salt
1/4 butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbl cinnamon
1 can (21 oz) blackberry pie filling

In bowl of electric mixer, sprinkle yeast over warm water.  Add the 1/2 cup sugar, oil, and 1 cup flour.  Mix until well combined.  Add remaining flour and salt.  Knead.  Let rise until doubled.  Mix the 1/4 cup sugar, the 1/4 cup brown sugar, and cinnamon together in small bowl.  Roll out dough to 18″×8″ rectangle.  Spread butter over dough then sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over butter.  Roll from long end to long end, pinch seam.  Cut into 12 1 1/2-inch rounds (I use thread, place under dough, cross ends over and pull quickly through dough), put in sprayed 13×9 pan.  Cover and let rise until doubled.  Spoon blackberry filling evenly over the top of the 12 rolls.  Bake in preheated 350° oven for 25-30 minutes.  Cool slightly and drizzle with sweet roll glaze.

Sweet Roll Glaze:
2 Tbl butter, melted
3/4 cup powdered sugar
milk

Stir powdered sugar into melted butter, add milk to make drizzle consistency.  I put in plastic bag, snip corner to make small hole and drizzle.
