 I have a great tendency to start baking late at night, like after supper. Yesterday was one of those days. At five o'clock, I decided I was going to make a Coconut Cream Pie while making supper. I have been wanting to make a successful Coconut Cream Pie, and yesterday I felt like actually trying it. So off I went.

 But I couldn't just make one pie--my pie crust recipe makes three crusts. So, I decided I would also make a Shoofly Pie. That ended up being the first one done, at 7:15pm. The last one came out at 9:15pm.

 What about the third one? I thought about Pecan Pie, but didn't want to use all my pecans. I also thought about Peach Pie, but didn't want to find the recipe. Then I thought of Apple Pie. We eat hot Apple Pie with milk for supper now and again, and I wished I had thought of this a few hours earlier and made Apple Pie for supper with Peach Pie on the side and Coconut Cream Pie for dessert. 😊  However, as it was too late for that and there is no point in making Apple Pie if you're not going to eat it for supper, I decided to make a Pumpkin Pie.

 So, I ended up with three very different pies. Two were my favorite, a different two were my mom's favorite, and yet another two for my Dad, and the same one for my siblings. Needless to say, there will be one pie that will be eaten in a flash, a second in two flashes and the third is probably already gone. 😋


  1. I love your food posts. You do a nice job on the kitchen as week has with your writing. Keep it up.

  2. And did you do all that because it was Pi day yesterday?
