Pie-a-palooza

VegasFrankVegasFrank Posts: 16,445 ✭✭✭✭✭
One thing you just may not know about me but could have probably guessed is that I am a pie fiend. During the holidays, I like to bake. So today, I baked 3 cinnamon chocolate pumpkin double layer pies, and a chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Tomorrow, I have a banana cream pie and strawberry rhubarb pie. Thursday I'm going to make some brioche chocolate bread pudding and a savory onion pie, which is a great breakfast treat or side item at the main meal.

Most of the recipes are out of a cookbook that I've tinkered with, but the chocolate pumpkin pie is what I've come up with on my own over the last 20 years. I start with a whole pie pumpkin... Sometimes I used two just to make sure I get two full cups of puree.

In case anyone wants it, here's the recipe.

    when I worked at a bakery we made those, minus the chocolate, very popular. Called a "prohibition pie" around here. I miss that job, worked from 2 to 8 or 10 AM and had the rest of the day for whatever.

    Okay, family desert challenge.  We all get a plate: 
    Banana cream pie with cool whip
    Chocolate pumpkin pie with homemade cinnamon topping
    Warm chocolate bread pudding with WC and chocolate sauce

    Each kid helped me make one of them.  Verdict:. Chocolate pumpkin pie by a landslide.  It was 4-1-0 in favor of the double layer pie. 5 votes if you count the yellow lab who got the first one last night.  I was the only holdout for the bread pudding, but the kids didn't like the texture (which was spot-on textbook perfect).  No votes for the banana cream, though my oldest daughter who helped me wasn't upset.  We kept the bourbon pie out of the challenge because it was too boozy  B)

    I'd share a pic of the homemade mincemeat pie, but I wasn't quick enough with the camera. My brother, who has sworn for years that he hated mincemeat, tried a piece to be kind to me. I wish he hadn't - he insisted I leave another when we left.
    Thank God Christmas is around to corner, I will be baking again for sure!

    Upcoming.  I made a vanilla bean cheesecake with a white chocolate vanilla bean mousse and a whipped Cream with a slight hint of cappuccino.  Haven't cut into it yet, though....
