Today's Special: Pie Episode

I didn't make much this week as far as actual meals go, however I did make approximately 1 million pies. I've provided links below for those of you who might want to make some of them for yourself.

This is from America's Test Kitchen. I used the same crust as is shown on the apple pie recipe. This pie rocks my world.

I've made this pie several times and it always turns out really good. Although, I prefer to double the cinnamon amount. Isn't it pretty?

I use the filling from this recipe and the banana graham crust from this recipe. This banana cream pie is seriously the best. Oh, and sprinkle a little lemon juice on the banana slices to keep them from going brown.

Easiest pie in the whole world. Takes about 20 minutes to make from start to finish. I use this graham cracker crust. Also, don't bother using key limes, regular ones taste just as good. Actually the stuff in the bottle tastes good too, but I like to get the fresh limes so I can use the zest. Use 1 drop of green food coloring to make it look pretty, but not too fake and weird.

I used this whipped cream on both the banana cream and key lime pies. One batch (using 1 pint of whipping cream) made enough for 2 pies. Tastes way better than Cool Whip.
