Sort of healthy, very yummy pumpkin pie

makes 2 pies

3 cups of pumpkin puree
3/4 cup honey
2 Tbs. molasses
1 Tbs. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs lightly beaten
1 can evaporated milk

Mix ingredients in order given. Depending on how puree-ed your pumpkin is to begin with you might want to give it a whirl in the blender to make it smooth before you pour it into an unbaked pie shell. Bake at 450 for 10 min. then lower temp. to 350 and bake for 40 min.

You can make the filling vegan by substituting 12 oz. of soymilk and 1/4 cup cornstarch for the milk and eggs. Dissolve the corn starch in the soymilk before you pour it in. You could make it egg-free or dairy-free by subsituting one or the other. The recipe is hard to mess up. As far as I know it is impossible to mess up and, believe me, I have put that to the test!!

Whole wheat crust

makes 2 crusts (or 1 covered pie)

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (you don't have to use pastry flour but the crust will be flakier if you do)
2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter- cut into pieces

whisk salt and flour. Add the butter pieces and squish it all together with your fingers until it vaguely resembles raw oatmeal. Add 1/4 cup of ice water and mix until it will form a ball. More ice water can be added if necessary, but too much will make it gluey and disgusting so be very judicious-- better to have to pat pieces into the pan because it is a little dry than have it get sticky.

form 2 equal balls, roll out and transfer to pie plates.

Cranberry Raisin Pie

(10" pie plate)

2 cups cranberries
1 1/3 cups raisins
2 cups hot water

Boil these three ingredients together until the berries are cooked (about 10 minutes or so).

Meanwhile, stir together:

1 1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons flour
dash of salt

When the berries have finished "popping" pour in the sugar mixture and continue cooking gently, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly.

Remove from heat and stir in

2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla.

Cool a bit and pour into pie shell. A lattice topping is traditional. Bake in 400F oven until crust is browned.

I made the easiest yummy chicken pie the other day! ( especially since I had my DD19 make the crust! Wink )

2 cooked bone in chicken breasts (cubed)
2 cans cream of potato soup
2 cups frozen mixed veggies ( boil them first for a few minutes)
1 tsp. poultry seasoning

Mix it together, put it in your pie crust....cover with a top crust.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes with foil around the edges.
Then uncover and bake 20 minutes more until golden brown.

It was SOOOO good!!

Fruit Crumble

a topping for your fruit cobbler, etc that is very easy to make

Half fat to the flour and rub it in and add about a tablespoon of sugar, no fluid, and put on top of fruit and bake in the oven about 20minutes gas 6 (about pastry temperature). Much lighter and crispier than cobbler.

Hi! If any of you have had Amy's Organic frozen meals...I'm looking for a recipe that is kind of like the "Mexican Bowl" that they put out. Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome. :)

My DD17 said that it was the best pizza that she had ever tasted and I've waited a long time for a compliment from that quarter :wink: She wants it again today for tea.

The dough is made in the breadmaker. Then shaped and left to rise for 15 mins, then topped and baked.

I have been thinking that it would be great to be able to freeze it, but I'm not sure. If I freeze it after shaping it, then thaw it and leave it to rise, will that work?

Old-Fashioned Lemon Meringue Pie

2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup corn starch
3 eggs
1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh)
grated rind of 2 lemons
2 tblsp. butter

Bring the water to boiling. Mix the sugar, salt, and corn starch and add to the water. Cook directly over the flame until the mixture is thickened and then place in a double boiler. Seperate the eggs, beat the yolks, and to them add the lemon juice and grated lemon rind. Beat all well and add to the corn starch mixture. Remove from the fire and pour into a baked pie crust or graham cracker pie crust. Make meringue with the egg whites and place on the filling. Brown meringue very briefly under broiler if desired. Cool before serving.

Note: this makes a semi-clear pie filling (like in doughnuts), not a 'cream' pie filling.

Sweet Potato Pie

Post by LadyHawke » Sat Dec 20, 2008 8:41 pm

I made this a few years back for Thanksgiving, and my brother insists I make it every year now!...If I remember right, this was the WRONG recipe that I received in the e-mail, and the CORRECTED one came a couple of days AFTER Thanksgiving...but this one was better than that one!!! (I think they had forgotten to add the egg if I remember right)

Sweet Potato Pie

2 pastry for 10 inch pie shell (I buy the frozen pie deep dish pie shells)

4 large cooked sweet potatoes or yams
4 oz butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 Tablespoon flour
13 ounce can evaporated milk

topping
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup pecans, crushed
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix Sweet potatoes and butter together.
Mix Sugar, flour and nutmeg.
Add dry mixture to sweet potato and butter mixture.
Stir in milk.
Mix thoroughly and pour into pie shell.

bake at 350 degrees (F) for 30 minutes.
Mix topping ingredients all together and sprinkle on top of pie.

Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes or until a knife comes clean when inserted in the center of the pie.

These freeze very well also...do not bake before freezing, just set it carefully into the freezer!

Key Lime Pie

Post by SomeoneElse » Thu Jun 11, 2009 4:37 pm

Key Lime Pie

2 cans condensed milk
1 cup lime juice
½ cup lemon juice
2 egg yolks (beaten)
1 9" graham cracker crumb crust

1. Mix first four ingredients with electric mixer.
2. Pour into cracker crust and freeze.
3. Top with Dream Whip and leave in freezer until ready to eat.

Serves: 8
Preparation: 15 minutes
Freeze until ready to use

I have found the crust gets soggy before I can eat the whole thing. I figured out a why to stop that AND cut calories. I make only the filling and put it into single serving size containers (Ziploc and Glad make them) and then freeze those. Eating one-eighth of the filling is really enough, it is very sweet.

Auntie's Chocolate Pie- I spoke of this in TDD and Coffe House Thread.This recipe has been handed down for 4or 5 generations.I'm putting the original recipe and then putting my addditions afterwards.
1 quart of milk-hot
1 cup of sugar
3 heaping tablespoons coco
5 heaping (if you want quite stiff filling, otherwise I would skimp the tablespoons)tablespoon cornstarch
Whisk or sift the coco and cornstarch together first(or you'll be sorry :roll: ),.
Then add the milk a bit at a time,whisking frantically til it's all mixed .Then cook ,stirring often til thick. I am now using my microwave. I have quite a powerful one- I do it- 3 min on 90 power,stir , do total of 3 times.Check it 1/2 way thru the last 3 min time as it may be thick enough by then.
After it's thickened ,then add 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Now -
I have added 1 egg yolk beaten well right at the beginning (just because I had the extra egg yolk).It did seem a bit richer. I have also added 1/2 undiluted canned milk instead of reg.
Here's a pic of it

This is the best pie crust recipe I've used and you can roll them out and freeze them flat which is such a big help .

Never Fail Pie Crust
Sift together -
5 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt

Cut in 2 c Crisco ( I used butter flavored

Add- 1 slightly beaten eggg+
In measuring cup put 1 tab vinegar,and fill with very cold water to make 1 cup .

Roll out, can roll flat and freeze -make 6-7 crusts depending on size
