Recipes starting with S

Sunshine Chiffon in Gingersnap Crust
  • Prep Time: 1 hour plus chilling
  • Baking Time: 10 to 12 minutes for crust

Sunshine Chiffon

It's got that tangy yet creamy thing going, highlighted by the gingersnap crust.  It's a nice change from most citrus pies.  And it won a blue ribbon at the state fair pie contest in the "Citrus" category!

Slab Apple Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour for making crust, prepping apples, filling.
  • Baking Time: 1 hour

Slab Apple Pie

This is a great pie to make for a crowd. Because you cook it in a 13x9 dish, it makes more than a traditional pie, is easy to cut into many pieces AND it tastes great!

Silky Pumpkin Pie
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes (plus pie crust shell)
  • Baking Time: 55-60 minutes

Silky Pumpkin Pie

Silky is right!  Light like a custard, yet sensuous with ginger and cinnamon.  Everyone who likes pumpkin pie and who has tried this version has said it's their favorite.  See for yourself!  Took a blue ribbon at the State Fair.

Scarlet Raspberry Dream Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour plus pie shell. Allow 2+ hours chilling time as well.
  • Baking Time: 12 - 15 minutes

Scarlet Raspberry Dream Pie

Bewitching.  That's this pie!  Fresh, sweet red raspberries and dark chocolate buttercream are a winsome pair. The judges deemed it "Best of Show" at the NM State Fair Pie Contest 2014.

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.)

  • 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.

Sugar-Free Banana Cream Pie
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes plus chilling
  • Baking Time: Crust: 15 minutes

Sugar-Free Banana Cream Pie

It's really good!  The chocolate adds a touch of elegance and flavor.  

Sweet Potato Pie
  • Prep Time: 2.5 hours
  • Baking Time: 45 minutes

Sweet Potato Pie

It’s creamy smooth and has rich flavors. A very satisfying pie!

Swiss Meringue
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Baking Time: 15 minutes

Swiss Meringue

Ah!  A beautiful, airy crown for a rich cream or lemon pie.  This version of meringue is less complicated than the Italian recipe and provides reliable results. 

Baker's sugar has a finer crystalline structure than regular sugar, so it dissolves more easily.  It's available at most grocery stores.
