Feeling uninspired by these dessert suggestions? Then here's another idea for you: caramel cream pie! This amazing dessert is everything you could want in a pie. It's creamy and rich, but thanks to the crispy caramelized rice topping, crunchy, too. The crust is a graham cracker and hazelnut mixture, so the most complex part of this pie is making the caramel pudding. However, if you follow the exact instructions in the recipe, it will turn out absolutely perfect. To serve at a party, make the pie a day in advance. Ready for the technique? Read more.
This Summer, I'm in a pie state of mind: I've been making at least one pie a month and show no signs of stopping! Lately, I've been tackling fruit pies, like peach and blueberry, but perhaps the time is right for me to move on to cream and custard pies? There are countless pie recipes out there, but if I had to choose one type of pie to be my favorite, I would select key lime pie. It's cool, it's creamy, it's divine. Second runner up? Banana cream pie. Classic cherry pie is third! How about you? What is your preferred pie?
The other day, the kind folks at the Buttercup Grill and Bar sent me a coconut cream pie. It was devilishly delicious, and with its crisp buttery crust, smooth creamy filling, and luscious whipped cream topping, it was hard not to devour a second piece. I sent an email out to the office announcing the pie's arrival and within half an hour, the entire thing was gone! I was surprised; since the majority of people prefer fruit pies, I figured not that many would want a piece of cream pie. How do you feel about them?
