This chocolate pie is not only a Southern traditional dish, but my mom has to make 2 to take to church lunches. Most people go back for dessert only to find all the pie gone - the smart ones get their piece on the first trip through. This is pie is also served as "birthday cake" on most everyone's special day. And the only way to top it off is with a piled-high meringue!
This is a great graham cracker crust, not dry or crumbly. It is sweet, almost like caramel. I recommend filling it with Recipe #115634. This will make a 9 inch crust but you can easily adjust it to make a taller 10 inch cheesecake crust.
I made this pie this weekend. It's adapted from The Perfect Recipe cookbook by Pam Anderson. Wow, we agreed it was the best lemon meringue pie recipe we'd ever had. The filling is very lemony sweet/tart and fluffy. The meringue is tall and fluffy/light. Prep times are estimated. It takes a little time, but is well worth it. Lemon meringue pie was first invented in Philadelphia. This recipe represents the Mid-Atlantic U.S. region.
Ohhh so refreshing!! Perfect for a hot summer day & it couldn't be any simpler. Stir
together only 4 ingredients & pour into the pie shell & freeze. You are gonna love this!!!
(Prep time does not include freezing.) Keep a couple of these pies on hand in the freezer
for when unexpected guests show up
This recipe is from C.A. Lynd of lyndsgourmet.com. Every year we anxiously wait for Lynd's farm to put out their peaches. They gave us this recipe with the peaches I just bought and it is simple and wonderful.
This is always the first thing I make when truly seasonal strawberries hit the market stands - I won't buy strawberries any other time, and I wouldn't make this pie with anything but the most aromatic berries.
From Connie Griffin at Hope Lodge. This is the best banana cream pie you will ever eat. check the reviews for different ways to go on this. the crust is dead easy , and adds a lot to the recipe. i like banana pudding also .
This pie gets a lot of mmmmm's. It is two separate layers and looks beautiful when sliced. I make it every year for the holidays and family won't accept anything else. easy easy easy and comes out perfect every time
