Perfect Pumpkin Pie

What makes it perfect? It's silky smooth, and has the traditional pumpkin flavor with an almost voluptuous mouth feel. Oh! Whipped cream on top would be gilding the lily, but what the heck. Won a blue ribbon at the state fair in 2002.

Rhubarb & Raspberry Pie
  • Prep Time: 35 minutes plus defrosting
  • Baking Time: 55 minutes

Rhubarb & Raspberry Pie

It's a winner!  It took a blue ribbon at the NM State Fair pie contest in 2013.  Plus, even better, it can be made with frozen fruit any time of the year.  Plus it has a beautiful color and deep flavor!

The element of surprise makes this pie a total delight. First, there's a hint of orange that enlivens the berries. Then the berries themselves are fresh, not baked, so they burst with flavor. They're nestled in a pre-baked pastry, top and bottom, and coddled in a shiny glaze. Took "Best of Show" at a state fair pie contest in 1999.

“High as Heaven” Coconut Cream Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours plus pastry
  • Baking Time: 5-12 minutes for meringue

“High as Heaven” Coconut Cream Pie

A generous filling topping with an even more generous meringue make this an extravagant pie. It’s great for those show-stopper occasions…and for anyone who just loves coconut! Best of Show winner in 2009.
