Roopa I wanted to make something a little bit unique for my sister’s birthday, so after a lot of pondering, I settled on this pear and fig pie. I adapted it from this pie recipe and used my go-to pie crust recipe.
Roopa I made a cake for a friend who said he likes chocolate, and pecan pie, so I figured I’d combine the two! I decided to make this chocolate honey pecan pie from Sprinklebakes. I used the filling from that recipe and one of my favourite pie crust recipes. I hadn’t really baked a pie … More Chocolate Honey Pecan Pie
Alana Pumpkin pie season is back! Unfortunately I worked all of the Thanksgiving weekend, but thank goodness for nurses because that means potluck at work! Guess what I brought with me! I almost forgot to take a photo before mowing down on this slice! I made a second pie this week because I had a … More Pumpkin Pie (and Crust Troubleshooting)
Alana Theresa and I got up to some baking before a wonderful lady date to Cafe Linnea with Katherine a couple weeks ago. There definitely wasn’t too much debate about whether sour cherry pie was the right choice! The recipe can be found in The Duchess Bake Shop Cookbook. Happy baking!
Alana I was reading a little bit about making pumpkin pie from scratch, and came across a recipe for this pie. Apparently pumpkin flesh is quite watery, making pies make from scratch quite inconsistent. Butternut squash on the other hand contains less water, making the flesh more consistent for baking. Neat! We had a butternut … More Butternut Squash Pie
Alana Last year Theresa, Katherine and I got together on the Thanksgiving weekend for pumpkin pie and colouring. We each tackled a piece of Earls’ pumpkin pie, which was quite the task because each piece is HUGE. We managed however, because the Earls pumpkin pie is ridiculously good. This year, I got it in my … More Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust
Alana The original purpose of the baking day that Theresa and I planned (a while ago now) was for us to try out the sour cherry pie recipe from the Duchess Bake Book. The sour cherry pie is a favourite of Theresa’s, and rightfully so! This pie is absolutely delicious! This pie was very straightforward to … More Sour Cherry Pie
Alana A coworker of mine was chatting one day at work about how much produce her garden has yielded this year. She was a little overwhelmed by it, and I piped up saying that if she had any apples I would take them off her hands. Done deal! I over did it in the oven, … More Apple Pie
Alana It’s been quite a while since I’ve baked anything, so when I realized that Stephen and Ash’s apple tree was dropping a tonne of apples I saw an opportunity! Stephen and I were getting together to play pokemon, so I figured it wouldn’t be hard to talk him into baking pie as well. I … More Apple Pie
Alana This pie needs no reason or explanation! I recruited Mike to help me because I hoped that he would have all the digits of pi memorized, so I could put on the pie. Sadly he doesn’t, so we needed to look them up on the Google. Engineers are so useless when it comes to … More Happy Pi Day!
