Pies and Tarts

A collection of pie and tart recipes.

Blueberry Toasted Coconut Tart

This summer we’ve turned into blueberry fanatics, and it’s all thanks to one 14-month old shorty. I’ve always been more of a raspberry girl, but when we took a family trip to the farmer’s market about a month ago, and let Asher sample a few blueberries from a stall, he went crazy for them. He…

German Chocolate Brownie Tarts

Apologies in advance, but I have a few non-sugary things to talk about today before we get to the good stuff. I promise to make it up to you, though, because the good stuff is gooooood. Taunting preview right here: So, first order of business: getting SugarHero posts in front of your eyeballs in the…

Cinnamon Mousse Tarts

True confession time: these were supposed to be a Cinco de Mayo dessert. The shells are made with Mexican chocolate, the mousse filling is flavored with lots of cinnamon…it was all going to be so perfectly appropriate and on-theme. But, you know, baking and photographing food is only one part of this whole blogging dealio….

Pie Milkshakes (For Pi Day)

Pi Day is here, it’s finally here! The day I have been planning for all month, and the day normal people aren’t even aware exists! Sweet Pi Day. I wrote about a Grapefruit Meringue Pie yesterday, but today, in honor of Pi Day, I want to share a milkshake recipe. [If this blog were high-tech,…

Grapefruit Meringue Pie

Tomorrow is March 14, aka 3-14, aka Pi Day—the one day a year when math nerds and food nerds unite. I don’t have particularly strong feelings about pi the number, but I definitely have strong feelings about pie the food. (And those feelings are generally expressed in the form of: “Get in mah pie-hole!”)  

Pear Tarte Tatin

In my house, we’re kind of geniuses when we’re asleep. Exhibit A: This recipe for Cinnamon Bun Hot Chocolate, which (seriously) came to me in a dream, and is dreamy in every sense of the word. Exhibit B: The dream I had the other night where I came up with a totally new mattress design….

Moon Pie Pie

Say hello to Moon Pie Pie. No, that’s not a typo, and no, I didn’t keyboard-stutter. Moon Pie Pie is the name of the new dessert I came up with last week, a crazy cookie-candy-pie hybrid. See, it’s a pie…with all the ingredients of classic moon pies. Ya dig?  Silly name, serious taste. Get on…

Cinnamon Bun Pecan Pie

It’s no secret we are pecan pie fans around my house. Actually, by “we” I mean Jason, and by “fans” I mean “he’s a fanatic who will eat pecan pie for every meal and then, to wash it down, he’ll put it in a blender and drink it like a smoothie.” Every year for his…
