Pies and Tarts

A collection of pie and tart recipes.

Pistachio-Rose Tarts

Pistachio is a flavor I’ve come to appreciate only recently, now that I’m an adult. When I was younger, I knew pistachio as simply “that ice cream flavor that looks like mint chip but– annoyingly, emphatically– is NOT mint chip.” (Seriously, why do they do that? It’s cruel.) However, now that my tastebuds are all…

Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

I know what you’re thinking, and I will save you the trouble and ask the question myself: who in their right mind posts a pumpkin recipe in May? MAY! Let me answer that by pointing to the giant knot on my head where a giant Tupperware of frozen pumpkin puree came flying out of my…

Chocolate-Raspberry Tarts

Happy Monday, friends. I currently have a to-do list three miles long, an unedited book manuscript positively glaring at me from my dining room table, and the overwhelming desire to burrow under my covers and go back to sleep for the next six hours. And did I mention I haven’t even had time to watch…

Lime-Coconut Pie

When we last met, I was torturing you with atrocious teenybopper/internet meme song lyrics. Considering that history, and taking into account the fact that I am making a superhuman effort to avoid any “put the lime in the coconut” jokes with this pie post, I think I deserve some snaps, don’t you? Thanks very much….

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie for Pi Day

You are going to HATE me for this, but you know what’s been going through my head all day today? Imagine this little ditty, if you will, sung to the tune of Rebecca Black’s “Friday”: “It’s Pi Day, Pi Day, gotta eat pie on Pi Day, everybody’s looking forward to eating, eating. Eating pie, eating…

I am so excited to be back baking with the Tuesdays with Dorie group! We’ve started baking through a new Dorie Greenspan book—Baking with Julia. Blog groups like this are an awesome way to discover new blogs, make new friends, and try recipes I wouldn’t otherwise try…plus, any excuse to cook a bunch of delicious…

Strawberry Hand Pies

There are some compelling reasons not to make these strawberry hand pies. For one thing, it’s November. Unless you live in summery Australia, it’s getting harder and harder to find good fresh strawberries these days. (And if you do live in Australia, you might be too busy riding kangaroos to make a silly hand pie…

TWD: Cinnamon Ice Cream Tart

This week’s TWD recipe, for a Coffee Ice Cream Tart, can be divided into two categories: things I did differently, and things I wish I’d done differently. In the “Things I Did Differently” camp, we have the ice cream itself. Instead of doctoring up store-bought coffee ice cream with ground almonds (??) I made my…
