Blueberry Pie

We live in one of the best locations in the world for blueberries and wild ones in Nova Scotia are a rare find. We found some wild ones in the middle of our province and picked enough for a pie! Blueberries are full of antioxidants and are delicious off the bush or baked up in…

Key Lime Pie

I often have very vivid memories of food related events from my childhood. A bag of limes can trigger a memory deeply ingrained in my brain! The bag of limes from Costco triggered one such memory of going to someone’s house and seeing a Key Lime Pie and being told by my parents that I…

Coconut Cream Pie

  This is one of my Dad’s favorite pies and a challenge to make one without eggs. There are lots of recipes flying around the internet that have silken tofu in them. I am not opposed to using silken tofu but it does lend itself to making a heavier pie. So I have developed this…

Eggless Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is a traditional Thanksgiving dessert in my family. This is an eggless recipe I adapted, hoping it will be a close replica to my childhood pies. It turned out tasty with a good texture. Eggless Pumpkin Pie 2 cups pumpkin puree 1 cup whipping cream (35% M.F.) 1 cup brown sugar 2 tbsp…

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Whoopie Pies

  Pumpkin is a great ingredient to work with when baking eggless. The pumpkin acts as a binder and bakes nicely.  I found this recipe a few years ago in a Rachel Ray Magazine and adapted it as an eggless recipe. These are soooo good and have become a family and friend favourite! Pumpkin Cream…

Apple Crunch Tarts

I had one ball of pie crust in the freezer I had to do something with before it got too old and I had apples in the fridge so I decided to make some tarts. Seemed like a Fall appropriate thing to do! I was able to get 12 tart shells out of the one…

Eggless Lemon Cream Pie

  Lemon pie brings back fond childhood memories for me. It is one of my Dad’s favorite pies. Not exactly kid friendly (if you are my kids) but my husband loves it so off to the kitchen I went. I used my Flaky Pie Crust recipe but it would be delicious with a graham crumb…

Flaky Pie Crust

I love pie! A lot of recipes for pie pastry are eggless, but there are a lot out there that are not and a lot that come out tough and far from flaky! I like using a combination of butter and shortening. The shortening helps it mix better and the butter gives it good buttery…
