Hi! I’m looking to make a nice pie for Purim (to send), but not the typicals.
I want something different, very delicious, and not too hard to make.
Thank you!March 10, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #748426i am hereMember
You are a smart cookie so go figure it out. some sort of yummy lemon meringue pie maybe the one from Amelia Bedilia sure looks delicious from the book.March 10, 2011 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #748427SacrilegeMember
I once made a chocolate mousse bottom with a meringue top (yuuuuum)
But I dont think it would transport well…March 10, 2011 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #748428ha ha ha haMember
the easiest pie is mouse pie takes 15 min to prepare and its yum!!! 😉March 10, 2011 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #748429I. M. HereMember
how about putting multiple fillings in the pie. A third cherry, a third blueberry and a third apple. I’ve never tried it, but I don’t think it should be too difficult nor too typical.March 10, 2011 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #748430kollel_wifeParticipant
I’ve eaten pumpkin pie which was very good, but I don’t have a recipe.
Sometimes in the bakery you’ll see a fruit pie, with 1/4 apple filling, 1/4 cherry, 1/4 lemon and 1/4 blueberry (I’m guessing at those ingredients, but let’s just say 4 types of filling). That would be very different looking (with the criss-crossed dough on top), and easy to make, if you buy the filling.
Let us know what you choose.March 10, 2011 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #748431MDGParticipant
I suggest pecan chocolate – chocolate chips mixed in a pecan pie. Top it off with parve ice cream or whipped cream.
How does that sound?March 10, 2011 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #748432smartcookieMember
I am here- na, I’m not that much of a smart cookie. Just liked that name. (I do think I’m smart enough to bake!)
For all those dessert pies- YUM and thank you! However, I’m looking for a pie as a side dish rather than a dessert.
The pies with different filling may be interesting, but I need to hear from someone who made it. No time for flops now!
If anyone has an idea to make a simple pie look nice/different- that’s also fine. I just don’t want to make a typical apple pie. I wanna show some effort!March 10, 2011 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #748433I. M. HereMember
I just remembered, we once made a strawberry-rhubarb pie that was a big hit.March 10, 2011 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #748434AdrianaParticipant
You can always saute a bunch of onions and fresh mushrooms and mix in some eggs, flour, mayo, onion soup mix etc and then bake it in a crust. Absolutely delish.March 10, 2011 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #748435always hereParticipant
I used to make carrot kugel cake … great side dish especially on Rosh Hashana & Succos 🙂March 10, 2011 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #748436stickynoteMember
