Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Peach Pie

August is National Peach month! My boyfriend is a big fan of peaches so I’ve been buying them a lot lately. We were going to visit friends this weekend and I wanted to bring something down so I decided to try to make a peach pie. This recipe is from Southern Living and sounded oh so good; I had all of the ingredients on hand so I figured I could at least try! My pie experience is a bit limited but this one turned out great. I even made the pie crust from scratch which was a lot more simple than I expected. Ingredients: 1 1/3 cups cold butter 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or baking spice 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/2 to 3/4 cup ice-cold water 8 large fresh, firm, ripe peaches (about 4 lb.) 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 large egg, beaten 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Mini Chocolate Swirled Pumpkin Pies

Just because Thanksgiving has passed doesn’t mean I can continue to deliver pumpkin-y goodness on this blog. This recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Pie was featured on The Chew and I just loved the idea of it but wanted to make it a little bit my own. I didn’t want the pumpkin flavor to be lost in the chocolate so I decided to swirl a bit in at the end. And, because I’m apparently on a mini kick, I went with mini pumpkin pies!   Ingredients: 3 oz Semisweet Chocolate Chips 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter (cut into small pieces) 1/2 teaspoon Coffee or Espresso Grounds 1 15 oz Can Pumpkin 1 12 oz Can Evaporated Milk 3/4 cup Packed Light-Brown Sugar 3 Large Eggs 1 tablespoon Cornstarch 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 3/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 3/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg Pinch of Ground Cloves Mini pie crusts
