Apple Pie is the ultimate comfort food and this easy apple pie recipe is no exception.
My mom used to say “apple pie without cheese, is like a kiss without a squeeze”. I loved to hear her say that more than anything! Fall is just around the corner and that’s means apple picking season is too!
You won’t believe how easy it is to make this pie!

Just thinking about the amazing aromas from a pie baking in my kitchen evokes strong memories of cozy family suppers,and the comforts of home. Come to think of it, this sweet little apple pie has created some very wonderful memories!
This Sweet Italian Easter Pie is light and creamy, with a sweet crunchy pie crust, almost like a sugar cookie! The ricotta filling is light and has a gentle orange zest that enhances the decadent chocolate chips. Such an elegant dessert, but honestly one of the easiest pies I’ve made in a long time.
There is no pie crust rolling involved! I’ve adapted the recipe (that makes two ricotta pies) to a tart pan, and then the second pie which is smaller, into a regular pie plate. You can adjust the sugar too. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar in the filling, but I reduced it to 1/2 cup and it’s just perfect! You can either halve the ingredients, or make both and freeze one! Which is what I did and then took it into work.
You will need: Ricotta cheese (3 – 475g containers) 7 eggs, white sugar, vanilla, an orange for zesting, flour, baking powder, vegetable oil, dark chocolate chips
This scrumptiously super EASY no bake grasshopper pie with cool whip is so light and fluffy – In addition to the delicious Cool Whip, there is Cream Cheese, Oreos & Crème de Menthe! With a smooth minty chocolate-y taste, folks will ask for seconds. Think mint chocolate chip ice cream! Did I say it was easy to make? Yayssss!!! (more…)
Homemade Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe from scratch. Fresh lemon flavour that isn’t too sweet but just right. The mile high meringue of course is what makes lemon meringue pie so special. You cook the lemon pie filling on your stove stop, and pour it into an all butter pie crust. Sound good so far? Then while the filling is set aside to cool, get out the chilled egg whites and beat them into stiff, foamy peaks, and toast it lightly in the oven to get that gorgeous toasted effect. Follow my tips and you will be asked to bring your homemade lemon meringue pie to the next family get together.
