Aunt Ann’s Homemade Fried Pies!

Aunt Ann and her Fried Pies! My Aunt Ann is renown for her Fried Pies. Her daughter, Annette (my cousin), calls them her "signature fried pies". She has made them for special occasions, holidays, and for family events for years. Annette told me that Aunt Ann always took them to family reunions, and continues to make them for Annette's husband, Joe, when they come to visit. Aunt Ann in her favorite chair with her "Granddog", Holly:) Aunt Ann, as I posted earlier, is my Daddy's last surviving sibling. There were seven children in their family, and Aunt Ann was the "baby". She is now 90 years old:) She and Mama were good friends before Mama met Daddy . . .

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 . . . The filling for Jenara’s Buttermilk Pie consists of eggs, melted butter, sugar, cornstarch, … [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...]
