No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie

Peeps fluff

 

No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie 

No Bake Pineapple Fluff pie is the perfect recipe to use up all those leftover PEEPS from Easter. It’s quick, easy to make, and so delicious. I always love finding recipes like this that help to eliminate the excess candy we obtain from the holidays. I will, more than likely, be sending this pie with my husband to work tomorrow. The guys always enjoy my cooking and I won’t be tempted by the extra candy laying around the house. I happen to be one of those people who LOVE those sugary PEEPS as long as they are frozen. That’s the best way to eat them in my opinion 😉 What’s your take on those sugar peeps? Love them or hate them?

I also have to say a quick apology for having another late post. My goal is to have my recipe posts out by 10 a.m.  every Monday morning. Well, this week life happened. My sister came home early and with the Easter holiday, I just got behind. It happens. I hope this yummy recipe will make up for the fact that it’s a few hours late =)

No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie 

Ingredients: 

1/3 Cup Milk

10 Peeps + 1 for garnish ( optional)  ( I used the yellow chicks)

1 graham Cracker Crust ( store bought, not the extra serving size)

Gently fold everything together. Pour this fluffy mixture into the prepared graham cracker pie crust. Refrigerate for 5 hours or overnight. Store in refridgerator.

Maple Pudding Pie + A Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe

 Maple Pudding Pie

Maple Pudding Pie plus + Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe 

This Maple Pudding Pie + A Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe will make the perfect addition to your easter dinner. This recipe for homemade Maple pudding was one of the handwritten recipes I inherited when my Nana passed away a few months ago. I made this pudding a few times and, although, delicious I thought it needed to be in a pie. So that’s what I did, of course. Although I did cheat a little. Since I was making a homemade pudding I decided to buy a store bought pie crust. And since I never made meringue, I had to search for a recipe for it. Here is the recipe I used MERINGUE RECIPE except I used 6 Tablespoons of sugar and 3 egg whites and I baked it at 325 for 25 minutes. If it does not get as brown as you would like it on the top then put it under the broiler for a few seconds.

Since I like to keep my writing short and sweet I am going to quickly give you a few pointers on making this homemade Maple Pudding ( Pie).

# 1 – If you are like me and do not have a double boiler, that is not a problem. You can easily make your own double boiler by placing a metal bowl on top of a dutch oven. When filling your dutch oven with water make sure that the metal bowl is not in the water but slightly above it.

#2 – As soon as you turn your water on to boil begin to prepare the rest of your ingredients. In the metal bowl that is sitting on top of your dutch oven ( Make shift double boiler) OR double boiler, add the milk and maple syrup. Then in a second bowl (smaller) add cornstarch, salt, egg yolks and 1/4 cup of milk. In a third bowl add your egg whites. I normally use 2 whisks and a fork when I do this. I use a whisk for the maple syrup and milk, a whisk for the cornstarch and egg yolk mixture, and a fork to mix the egg whites.

#3 – And this is the last thing I want to tell you but is also the MOST important. When adding the eggs to the hot milk and maple syrup mixture it is VERY important that you add them slowly and whisk briskly without stopping! If you fail to do this you will end up with bits of cooked egg in your pudding, and trust me, you don’t want that.

This is really an easy recipe if you follow my pointers. I hope you will give it a try and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. =)

10 Minute Oreo Fluff Pie

Oreo Pie

10 Minute Oreo Fluff Pie

My 10 Minute Oreo Fluff Pie is probably one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. The title says it all. Now I have never actually timed myself making this pie but I am sure 10 minutes is pretty accurate. If you happen to make this pie and decide to time yourself let me know how long it takes! May even be less than 10 minutes.

I came up with this recipe specifically for my brother aka Uncle Chuck. We were at a restaurant and there was this oreo fluff thing he couldn’t get enough of. Being the nice sister that I am I decided to recreate the recipe for him in a pie form. It is now one of his favorites. This recipe makes 2 pies so I jokingly say it makes one for Uncle Chuck and one for the rest of us. 😉  Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 pre- made Oreo crusts ( Regular size, not the extra serving size

1 pack of Oreo’s crushed (just use regular Oreo’s, not double stuffed)

Directions:
1. Take 2 full sleeves of oreo’s; crush and set aside.

2. In a medium/large size mixing bowl add heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla. Beat with hand mixer until stiff and fluffy.

3. Add Crushed Oreo’s and gently fold them into the fluff mixture.

4. Split the fluff mixture between 2 pie shells and smooth down with a spoon.

5. Crush the last sleeve of Oreos and use to top the pies. ( You may end up with some extra crushed Oreos just put them in a sandwich bag for later use. They make a great ice cream topping! 😉 )

6. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight.
