Blackberry Mascarpone Hand Pies

Though I realize most people have Christmas cookies on their mind right now, I thought I would go ahead and post these little hand pies because they turned out so wonderfully. I made my first batch of hand pies a couple months ago and they turned out just okay. The crust lost its flakiness within… Continue reading Blackberry Mascarpone Hand Pies

Key Lime Pie

This is one of my all time favorite pie recipes, and it’s also one of the easiest to make.

Though I baked eight pies around Thanksgiving and Christmas, I decided… Continue reading Grapefruit Pie

Custard Cranberry Tart

As Thanksgiving approaches, I’ve been scrambling to find a dessert other than pumpkin pie that I can make. I’m the baker in the family, so it is generally my duty to make the desserts. To me, pumpkin pie is nasty stuff, though I’ll still make a couple for everyone else, who apparently love it. I’ve started… Continue reading Custard Cranberry Tart
