Most everyone loves a good pie. But, everyone also has their own favorite. I love easy pies, both sweet and savory. What is your favorite pie?
Our first recipe is an old family favorite. My aunt Daisy used to make the best sliced sweet potato pie. Our family really looked forward to her pies at family events and Thanksgiving.
The second recipe is my dad’s all-time favorite. I personally don’t care for egg custard, but Daddy loves them. For egg custard, you have to cook the custard before you assemble and bake the pie. It isn’t hard; it just takes a little longer that way.
The third recipe is my favorite savory pie. I have a thing for chicken pot pie. I even sometimes stoop to buying the frozen ones in the grocery store. However, it is truly easy to make a chicken pot pie. You have two options; you can make the pie like a casserole with the crust only on top or use a pie shell and make it a true pie. Either way, you will enjoy the results.
The last recipe is one that you will want to keep forever. So, cut it out and put it away. This will be your go-to recipe when you need a dessert and don’t have a lot of time. It’s a peanut butter pie. The first time I ever had it, Debra Guthrie made it for us at the hospital one night. I thought I had died and gone to dessert heaven! I could have eaten the whole thing by myself. I still feel that way. Best of all, you don’t cook anything!
