Jenara’s Buttermilk Pie!

Buttermilk Pie, a southern favorite! Have you ever had a Buttermilk Pie? Personally, I had not, until I made Jenara's Buttermilk Pie! Since I had never made a buttermilk, pie, I asked Jenara, a young woman in my church, for her recipe. Thankfully, she was kind enough to give it to me! If you don't know what a Buttermilk Pie is, it is a classic, traditional southern pie. I've always heard it was similar to an Egg Custard Pie, but to me, it really is more like a chess pie.  But, it does not have cornmeal in it, which most chess pies do. So, I guess, it is a cross between an Egg Custard Pie and a Chess Pie. Making Jenara's Buttermilk Pie . . .

Mama and Grandmama Hall’s Apple Pie!

 A warm piece of apple pie! There's nothing better, in my opinion, than a warm piece of apple pie! And, Grandmama Hall's Apple Pie has to be the best around! It's been one of our Family Favorite pies since I was a child eating it at Grandmama's house. This apple pie was one of her signature desserts. Grandmama's house. . . My Grandmama Hall was known in our small town for her delicious apple pie. She would often bake one and take it to someone who was sick, or had lost a loved one. In fact, Grandmama had TWO recipes for apple pie. . . her traditional one (pictured here), and one that she baked in a brown paper bag! I have that recipe, too, but I haven't made it. My mother, however, remembers Grandmama making the "brown paper bag" apple … [Read more...]

Dirt Pudding Pie, a yummy dessert without the worms!

Dirt Pudding Pie? Today I made two Dirt Pudding Pies. If you remember back in the day, Dirt Pudding was VERY popular. But, it was covered with gummy worms. The girls at Candace's shop today were talking about eating Dirt Pudding when they were little. So, when I got home, I made it . . . as a pie . . . but NOT with the worms! LOL! For those who don't remember Dirt Pudding, it typically is made with chocolate pudding and Oreo cookies, plus some other ingredients. But, the stars of this dessert were the gummy works that were poking out of the top. Kids LOVED it! Personally, I didn't like the worms, but I did like the pudding:) Making the Dirt Pudding Pie . . . This Dirt Pudding Pie is super simple to make with just a few ingredients. … [Read more...]
