  • 1-1/2 c. dark corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. pecan halves

If using a ready made piecrust, place it in a 9" pie plate, if not, roll dough to a 13" round and place into pie plate. Beat eggs and stir in sugar, flour, salt, corn syrup and vanilla. Pour mixture into pie shell and arrange pecan halves on top. You may also chop pecans and add these to the sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until center is almost set, but still soft. (Filling will set as it cools.) Serve with bourbon flavored whipped cream.

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 T. milk or half and half
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 8oz. container of whipped topping
  • 1 prepared chocolate flavor crumb crust

Mix cream cheese, 1 T. milk and sugar in large bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Gently stir in 1-1/2 c. whipped topping. Spread onto crust. Pour 2 cups of milk or half and half into a bowl. Add pudding. Beat with wire whisk until well blended. Immediately stir in remaining whipped topping. Spread over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.


Lemon Meringue Pie

The easiest way to make this particular pie is to purchase a ready-to-bake pie shell, lemon meringue pie filling (by Jello or other brand) and eggs.

Bake the pie shell as directed and make your pie filling according to package. Combine 4 egg whites and 1 tsp. of vanilla in large bowl. Beat at high speed of electric mixer until soft peaks form. Beat in 6 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat well after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling, covering completely and sealing to edge of pie. Bake at 350F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until meringue is golden. Cool to room temperature before serving.


Strawberry Rubarb Pie

  • 4 cups fresh cut rhubarb (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 1/4 cupall-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp plus 1-1/2 tsp quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 tsp
  • grated orange rind
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

For crust, either purchase a package of top and bottom ready-to-bake or make your own to fit a 9-inch pie. Do not bake. Heat oven to 425F. For filling, combine rhubarb and strawberries in large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine 1-1/3 cups sugar, flour, tapioca, orange rind, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir well and add to rhubarb. Toss to cover fruit. Spoon filling into unbaked pie crust.. Place top curst onto filled pie. Trim crust 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plateand fold top edge under bottom crust. Flute edges. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape. If desired brush top crust with egg to glaze and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake at 425F for 40 to 50 minutes, or until filling in center is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cover edges with foil, if necessary, to prevent over browning.


Apple pie

  • 9 cups sliced, peeled apples -about 3 lbs or 9 medium apples
