National Pie Day and a Very Easy Pie Recipe


Heart pie lollies available at Williams-Sonoma last year.


Do you *love* pie?  Today is National Pie Day, a day for celebrating pies.  :D

I've blogged about pies several times, and here are some of my favorites:

What is your favorite kind of pie?  Cherry?


Cherry pie is my favorite

In honor of National Pie Day, I wanted to share a recipe easy enough for your kids or grandkids to make.

This is what you'll need:


Instead of two cups of milk only add 1 3/4 cup to the pudding mix.

Easy S'mores Pie

Ingredients:
graham cracker crust
instant chocolate pudding
1 3/4 cups milk
1 7 oz. jet-puffed marshmallow or tub of Kool Whip
marshmallows and chocolate chips for garnish if desired

Procedure:
1.   Mix pudding and milk together for two minutes with a wire whisk.  Pour into crust.  Chill for one hour.
2.   Heat marshmallow in glass bowl in microwave for about fifteen-twenty seconds.  Smooth on top of pie.  *or*  Top pie with Kool Whip.
3.   Garnish with marshmallows and chocolate chips.
4.   Serve immediately!










Red velvet coffe is delicious with this pie!



How are you celebrating National Pie Day?



Yep!  Everyone *loves* pie!!!


Until next time...

Blessings!

  11. What? Pie is my favorite dessert and I didn't even know. I would have made one of my two favorite pies. Pecan or Coconut Cream. Although, I love most pies. Except for Pumpking and Chocolate. The Smore pie is perfect for Winter and the pie pops are so fun!

  13. Hi RJ!

    I am not a big pie eater... let me think about this. It would be a tie between pecan, coconut cream or key lime!
    Depends on the time of year, I guess!
    (I am fickle, what can I say!??)

  15. Oddly enough, I hated pie for the first 20 years of my life. I have no idea why. Because these days, I lovedy love a cherry pie, a tart apple pie (especially with marzipan piped over the top, or with sharp cheddar melted over a piece), key lime pie (without the meringue)....and I would love to try a peach pie someday. :)

    Those heart cherry pies look amazing...I need to make those for V-day. Thanks for sharing! :D

  19. Okay...now I seriously want some pie. My grandmother used to make an egg custard pie that was to die for. It reminds me of your buttermilk pie.
