Walnut Whiskey Pie

This recipe is very similar to a Pecan Pie but a bit different!

Not as sweet as Pecan Pie & the addition of the whiskey is so good….

Chocolate Bar Pie

This recipe is from my sister Edith & she gave it to me probably 25 years ago. I have looked for the original recipe, Hershey Bar Pie, but can not find it anywhere that is exactly the same as this one. The recipes I have seen on the internet call for Cool Whip & a pre-made graham crust. Certainly using a pre-made graham crust & Cool Whip makes this very easy & quick. I have made this as the recipe I have, with a quick home made no-bake graham pie crust…chilling it in the freezer while getting the filling ready.*** be careful not to leave it in the freezer too long & real whipped cream, unsweetened since the other ingredients are sweet. I like that this recipe is using real whipped cream..my personal preference rather then using Cool Whip. The filling is sweet, creamy & smooth. I grated some semi-sweet chocolate on top of the pie to finish it.

Here is the link to the recipe on the Hershey website.

This is the recipe I have from my sister

Chocolate Bar Pie

Ingredients

1  prepared 9″ graham cracker crust *** home made or bought is fine

1  8 oz milk chocolate bar, broken in pieces *** I used a Neilson Jersey Milk Bar

1/3 cup milk

1 1/3 cup mini marshmallows

1 cup whipping cream

Method

1. Make a graham wafer crust… I just used the recipe on the box of graham wafer crumbs &       chilled the crust in the freezer while I was getting everything else ready

2. Combine the chocolate bar, milk & marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2/ 1/2 minutes. Stir after 1 1/2 minutes. continue in the microwave until mixture is melted & smooth, stirring every 30 seconds

3. Cool chocolate mixture completely *** I put it in the freezer to cool

4. Whip the cream until stiff.

5. Fold the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture.*** Add a bit of whipped cream to start & mix well, then fold the rest in.

6. Spoon into the crust

7. Chill for several hours until firm

*** I think this is meant for a bought graham crust shell…it didn’t fill up my pie pan enough so I will top it will a layer of whip cream I guess since the shell is not completely full !!!

Fresh Strawberry Pie

My sister , Edith, has made this fresh strawberry pie for years. I have always thought it sounded delicious & I wasn’t wrong!! I do love the strawberry pies that have the custard on the bottom, strawberries & then that beautiful red glaze from the package you can get at the grocery store! Nothing wrong with that pie either. But…. Continue reading “Fresh Strawberry Pie”

Jacki & The Duchess Bake Shop’s Pumpkin Pie

Jacki ( my daughter) loves making pie. And she does a good job at it too!  She is working for a company that employs some Americans so for American Thanksgiving Jacki made them a Pumpkin Pie.

They all loved it . Ate it all up, which is no surprise.

I could not find the recipe online and do not have permission to post it so I am just going to post a picture of the pie and a picture of the Duchess Bake Shop cookbook. This cookbook is so worth buying! I have made several recipes from it and they are all great. If you don’t live in Edmonton, this cookbook will allow you to enjoy some of the delicious baked goods that the Duchess Bake Shop makes. This patisserie has been named one of the best in the world by BuzzFeed in 2015. Everything they sell is perfect and delicious.

Here is a link to an article in the Edmonton Journal about the Duchess Bake Shop.
