Cookie Pie

"I won first place in a pie-making contest with this pie, out of 21 entries. It's a real winner! I used butter instead of lard in the crust. I find a tiny sliver is all you need — it's very, very rich."

Lemon Meringue Pie

"This pie is magical! For the best pie, be sure to remove the filling from the heat before you stir in the lemon juice and butter, and spread the meringue while the filling is hot!

Coconut Cream Pie

"This was quite delicious! To ward off weeping, I suggest not cooling the pie before topping it with the meringue. I sprinkled the pie with untoasted coconut and it toasted up just fine during baking."
