Pies for Pi Day
Pie week is almost over! I hope you've enjoyed reading about pie and Pi. Tomorrow is Pi day and I will be sharing a brand new recipe I made to celebrate the day - Reese's inspired peanut butter pie! Let's recap all the pie treats from the week. I've shared apple pie recipes, nerdy Pi treats, and mini chicken pot pies.
Key Lime Pie
The first of my favorite pie recipes is a key lime pie that's the perfect blend of tart and sweet! I used a ready-made crust, and topped it with a delicious key lime filling with a dollop of whipped cream on top. This pie may be simple, but the lime juice and zest packs a punch of flavor! You can find the recipe here.
Kentucky Derby Pie cupcakes
I grew up in KY, and though I never went to the derby, I've had plenty of Derby pies. Whether you call it Derby, Kentucky, "Day in May", or simply chocolate pecan pie - it's delicious! This cupcake recipe is inspired by the pie. The cake is butter pecan with chocolate chips and it's topped with chocolate pecan pie filling and whipped topping. I even decorated the cupcakes with a mini horseshoe and rose!
Simple Pudding Pie with Cookie Crust
This pie was a quick and easy dessert I made to watch the Superbowl. The crust is made from Snickerdoodle cookies, it was inspired by my Snickerdoodle cookie cups with pumpkin cream cheese. The cookie crust is filled with a simple pie filling made from pudding. I used butterscotch pudding and finished it off with whipped topping. There's so many great pudding/cookie combinations to try!
Funny Cake Pie
I used to be involved in a group that did a surprise recipe swap each month. I loved getting matched up with a blogger and learning about their blog and recipes. One month, I tried this Funny cake recipe, it's a PA Dutch dessert. The treat is a hybrid of cake and pie. The batter is a combination of chocolate and cake mix baked in a pie crust. Delicious!! You can get the recipe here.
Caramel Banana Pie
I shared this pie earlier this week as I decorated it for Pi Day. But, today I'm focusing on the delicious flavor! The pie is a caramel banana pie - one of my favorite flavor combos! Check out the recipe here.
