Weekly Mix: Pie Week

If you’ve been anywhere near BoB or basically the internet, you know that we are at the end of Pie Week. I had such fun with my pie-baking frenzy that I’m thinking we need to petition for another Pie Week pretty soon. Who’s with me?

In case you missed any of the festivities, including some fantastic giveaways, here’s a look back at the pies my blogging friends and I baked for this wonderful and delicious week.

Chocolate-Pecan Tart | Bake or Break

I started things off with a tart recipe I’ve had bookmarked for months. Chocolate-Pecan Tart is a must for you chocolate fans. It all starts with a chocolate crust. Then, that gets filled with rich chocolate ganache and pecans. Use some really good quality chocolate for this one. It is, in a word, amazing.

Apple-Pear Butter Pie | Bake or Break

My next pie, Apple-Pear Butter Pie with Gingersnap Crust, is a little different. It has plenty of apples and pears, but they’re in the form of spiced Apple-Pear Butter. You won’t believe how simple this pie is to make. The filling mixes in maybe five minutes. And, it all goes inside a two-ingredient gingersnap crust. Top with whipped cream and crushed cookies, and you’ve got a new favorite pie.

Caramel Chess Pie | Bake or Break

My final pie for Pie Week is a twist on an old favorite. Caramel Chess Tart is a simple pie with big flavor. I love that you get such great caramel flavor without having to make caramel, which can be a bit tedious.

My blogging friends Audra and Brandy very graciously organized our Pie Week fun. Joining in on the fun were some talented bloggers who made some seriously mouth-watering pies. Be sure to visit their blogs and see these lovely pies.
