All Pies

 

Big & Bold Rhubarb Pie
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes plus making crust
  • Baking Time: 50 minutes

Big & Bold Rhubarb Pie

Love rhubarb? This one will fill the bill, and then some! Recipe makes an 11 or 12" pie, enough for company, and is striking with the bright red filling bubbling up through your delicate lattice crust. A splash of orange juice makes it even more bold. Won a blue ribbon at the state fair in 2004.

Chocolate Chess Pie
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Baking Time: 50 minutes

Chocolate Chess Pie

It's easy and it's chocolate!  Made with ingredients at hand, you can have pie for dessert any time.  See 'Baker's Notes' below for a gluten-free version.

  • Prep Time: one hour
  • Baking Time: 36 minutes

Costa Rican Orange Blossom Pie

Winner of the 'Merry Month of May' pie contest!  This recipe was created to use the Costa Rican sour oranges or 'mandarinas.'. They are very sour and are used in place of lemons.

Honey Nut Tart
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes plus time to chill pastry dough
  • Baking Time: 40 minutes

Honey Nut Tart

What a gift from nature honey is!  And this tart puts honey and nuts right on top, where they belong.

Italian Meringue on Lemon Pie
  • Prep Time: 35 minutes
  • Baking Time: 2-3 minutes

Italian Meringue

It's not every day that you make a pie with meringue, so if that's what you're doing, try this version of meringue!  It is so much more reliable than regular meringue, holding up beautifully and less likely to "weep," and hence to make you weep as well. 

  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Baking Time: 45 min plus 3 hrs chilling time

Key Lime Pie

It is just so delicious!

Lemon Lover's Lemon Meringue Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 1/2 - 2 hours
  • Baking Time: 12 minutes

Lemon Lover's Lemon Meringue Pie

Pucker up, sweet one! This one is loaded with lemon flavor and capped with a glossy, Italian-style meringue. It's for those who really love their lemon meringue pie. Took a blue ribbon in 1997.

Meringue
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Baking Time: 20-30 minutes

Meringue

Meringue can be a challenge, even for experienced bakers!  This version is said to be foolproof, holding its own even in damp weather. 

Mocha Latte Pie
  • Prep Time: 2 hours plus 3 hours chill time
  • Baking Time: 12-16 minutes for crust

Mocha Latte Pie

What's not to love about coffee, chocolate and cream?  Add a rich pastry and, well, it's enough to make even a barista's mouth water.  And the judges liked it, too.  It took a blue ribbon!"

Peach Pie
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Baking Time: 55 minutes

Peach Pie

Peach pie is my favorite, made with ripe, juicy, flavorful peaches.  This recipe saves those perfect peaches from summer time as frozen slices so that you can enjoy great peach pie all year.  Really, I was pleasantly surprised at how good this is!  The judges thought so, too, giving it a blue ribbon at the state fair this year.

 

Pie Pals Pie Crust
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes plus chilling

Pie Pals Pie Crust

This crust recipe is tried and true:  flaky and light, with just enough salt to complement a sweet pie or tart.  Complete directions are included, so even a novice baker can be proud!

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!

Salty Dog Pie
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes plus crust/cooling
  • Baking Time: 50 minutes for pie, 15 for crust

Salty Dog Pie

If you like pink, as in pink grapefruit, you'll love this one.  It's very much like the cocktail made with pink grapefruit juice and vodka, served with a rim of salt (like a margarita).  It's refreshing and different, perfect for a summer party.

St. Patrick's Day Pie (a.k.a. Grasshopper Pie)
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes plus 2 hours freezing
  • Baking Time: none

St. Patrick's Day Pie (a.k.a. Grasshopper Pie)

This is like those chocolate minty cookies sold by neighborhood girls in the Spring...only more creamy and "adult." A decadent indulgence. (I challenge you to find one ingredient in here with any redeeming nutritional value. But what the heck.)

Starry Night Blueberry Pie ©
  • Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours plus 2 hours for chilling
  • Baking Time: About 24 minutes, split

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.
