Skillet Apple Pie

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, January 15, 2023
Print Friendly and PDF This pie is adapted by a recipe from Trisha Yearwood. It's so easy, goes together in minutes, but her recipe didn't have enough apples, so I doubled it to two cans and simmered them a bit before putting in the pie shell and baking it. Seriously yummy with little effort. 

 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick) 
1/2 cup light brown sugar 
2 refrigerated rolled pie crusts, such as Pillsbury 
Two 21-ounce cans apple pie filling, simmered for a few minutes
2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar 1 tablespoon for melted butter for top. 

 Directions: 

Melt the 1/2 stick of butter in a 9-inch cast iron skillet. Then add the brown sugar and melt them together on medium heat, about 2 minutes. Add the apple pie filling, remove from the heat and set aside while preparing the crust.  

Unroll the crusts and put one in the bottom of the black iron skillet.  Pour the apple pie filling over the crust and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar. Use the second pie crust to cover the filling. Brush the top with the 1 tablespoon of the melted butter, then evenly sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar on top. 

Cut vents in the middle of the pie. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

The World Famous Ann Landers’ Best Ever Lemon Meringue Pie with Never-Fail Meringue

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, March 31, 2022


Absolutely, positively, without a doubt,  the best lemon pie recipe of all time.  This famous pie is just perfection.  This the pie your mother and your grandmother made, the one that has been on family tables for generations and often times the old recipes are best, and this is the BEST of the BEST.  You won't find a better lemon pie recipe, I've made it for years and years and it never fails. 

Filling:

1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
6 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups water
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
2 teaspoons vinegar
3 tablespoons butter

Never-Fail Meringue:

1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup boiling water
3 egg whites
 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt

Directions:

1. Bake prepared pie crust according to provided directions. Of course homemade is best and I love the vintage Crisco recipe, but Trader Joes makes a wonderful frozen crust.  You must let it come to room temperature before putting in your pie pan or it will break into pieces.  It's worth the effort, though, Trader Joes crust is the best I've found, but of course Pillsbury works, too.

2. To make filling, mix sugar and cornstarch together in the top of a double boiler. Add the two cups of water. Combine egg yolks with lemon juice and beat until well mixed.

3. Add to the rest of the sugar mixture. Cook over boiling water until thick — about 25 minutes which will eliminate any starchy taste.

4. Add the lemon extract, butter and vinegar, and stir thoroughly.

5. Pour mixture into deep 9-inch pie shell, and let cool.

5. To make meringue, blend cornstarch and cold water in a saucepan.

6. Add boiling water, and cook, stirring until clear and thickened.

7. Let stand until COMPLETELY cold.

8. With electric beater at high speed, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, and beat until stiff but not dry. Turn mixer to low speed; add salt and vanilla.

9. Gradually beat in cold cornstarch mixture. Turn mixer again to high, and beat well.

10. Spread meringue over cooled pie filling.

11. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until top is lightly browned.

Note:

If you want a sky-high meringue, like the ones you see in bakeries, just use 6 egg whites (save yolks for another recipe), and double the sugar....I just use the same amount of cornstarch/water mixture when I use 6 egg whites.

North Carolina Cracker Crust Lemon Pie

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, March 20, 2022


Southerners love this pie and when I found this recipe on  Cook's Country, I knew I had to make it.  Their recipes never fail and this was no exception,.  This is an easy to make, light, bright lemon pie that has a perfect balance of sweet, salty, and sour. And, because it's easy to make that's a bonus, but I would make this even if it was difficult, it's THAT good.  I did just a couple of adjustments to the original recipe, because that's just the way I roll.  And, okay, I admit it, I used Cool Whip for the topping.  I've aways been a fan of Cool Whip, it's a lot lower in calories and you don't have to whip the cream. 

FOR THE CRUST

6 ounces saltine crackers (about 1 sleeve or 36 crackers)
⅛ teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup light corn syrup

FOR THE FILLING:

1 can sweetened condensed milk (14-ounce)
4 large egg yolks
¼ cup heavy cream ~ I use Half and Half
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest plus ½ cup juice ( 3 lemons)

FOR THE TOPPING

½ cup heavy cream, chilled
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

~ or forget whipping the cream and just use Cool Whip ~

Steps

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Add the saltines and salt to the food processor and pulse until you have coarse crumbs (about 15 pulses). Add the melted butter and corn syrup and pulse until the crumbs are about the size of oatmeal (another 15 pulses).

Add the cracker mixture to a greased 9-inch pie plate. Use the bottom of a dry measuring cup or glass and press the crumbs into an even layer on the bottom and up the sides of the dish.

Place the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake until light golden brown, 17 to 19 minutes.

To make the filling – whisk the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, cream, and lemon zest together in a bowl, add the lemon juice and whisk until well combined.

With the pie plate on the baking sheet still, remove it from the oven and pour in the filling (the crust does not need to be cooled) and place it back in the hot oven. Bake until the edges of the pie are set but the center still jiggles, 15 to 17 minutes. Place the pie on a wire rack and let it cool completely. Refrigerate the pie until completely chilled.

For the topping, use a stand mixer fitted with a whisk and whipped the cream, sugar, and vanilla on medium low until foamy (about a minute). Increase the mixer speed to high and whip until stiff peaks form, 1 to 3 minutes. Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie and serve cold.

Lemon Cherry-O Cream Cheese Pie

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, March 18, 2022


This is my favorite dessert of all time.  This recipe dates back to the 60's and it's positively scrumptious.  Sometimes. you just can't beat old school and nothing compares to this in our family, it's one of those recipes that spans the generations and we will make forever.  It's timeless and it's just sinfully delicious.

Graham Cracker Crust

Make your own.  It only takes a few minutes and it's so much better than those crumbs you buy in the box or the icky premade crusts you buy at the grocery store.

I make this in the food processor, it's so easy.  No food processor, no worries.  Just put the crumbs in a large baggie and crush with a rolling pin or a glass, then combine with the sugar and melted butter.

1 sleeve of graham crackers broken into pieces
1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of melted butter

Combine all and pulse until combined.  Spray pie pan with cooking spray, and pat in the graham cracker crumbs, using a measuring cup to smooth and get close to the edges.  Homemade crumbs are so good, they are more coarse and gives you more graham cracker flavor.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes until it starts to brown.  

Cool before adding filling

Lemon Cream Cheese Filling

8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, don't get the low fat, go for it with fully leaded original, it's so much better
1/3 cup lemon juice - can substitute ReaLemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling, chilled

Steps

Beat the cream cheese with a mixer on high until fluffy. Fold in the condensed milk, lemon juice and vanilla by hand, until blended. Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Top with the pie filling, chill thoroughly before serving in pan covered with aluminum foil.  I always place toothpicks vertically in the pie so that the foil doesn't smash the cherries. ๐Ÿ’ #cherry #cherrypie #cherrycheesecake #cheesecake #food #foodie #yummy #yummyfood #jancooksrealfood #jancancook #janspicx #foodporn #fruit #dessert #delicious #sweets #pioneerwoman

Joanna Gaines Famous Magnolia Lemon Pie

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, March 12, 2022


There’s something about the blend of a graham cracker crust, lemon filling, and fresh whipped cream that makes for a perfect dessert. Plus, it’s really beautiful!
 —Jo

When I read this on Magnolia's webpage, I knew it was something I would love.  Her recipes never fail, and this was one of the best I've tried.

 I adapted it just a bit, I use Cool Whip instead of heavy cream, because...  it's a pain to whip the cream, and the calories are out the wazoo.  Sometimes I also make it with Fat Free Eagle Brand Milk, it's not as rich as the original, it's just your choice if you're trying to trim some calories off the recipe

Ingredients

Crust:

1 ½ cups crushed graham crackers
6 tablespoons butter , melted
⅓ cup sugar

Pie Filling:

2 (14 ounce) cans Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
⅔ cup lemon juice
Dash of salt

Whipped Cream:

1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For the Crust: Spray a pie dish with non-stick spray. Combine crushed graham crackers, butter, and sugar. Press into prepared pie plate. Bake for 8 minutes.

Note:  I like to make my own graham cracker crumbs, they are just so much better.  I just break up a pack of graham crackers and put them in the food processor, add the sugar and the butter and pulse until combined.  Easy peasy and so much better than the premade box of crumbs you buy in the store.  Why?  Because they are coarser if you crush them yourself and have a better texture. Just my opinion.  Of course you could just buy a premade graham cracker crust, but don't do that, those things are skimpy and not fresh like they are when you make them yourself.  

For the Pie Filling: Using a mixer, mix the condensed milk, egg yolks, lemon juice ans salt together. Beat on medium speed for 4-5 minutes. Pour into pie crust and bake for 10 minutes at 350. Little bubbles will start to surface. Cover the crust if it starts to brown too much towards the end.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

For the Whipped Cream: Mix the cream, sugar, and vanilla. Whip until fluffy, and add to cooled lemon pie.

Lawry's Famous Coconut Banana Cream Pie

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, February 07, 2022

This famous recipe has 685,000+ views on Jan CAN Cook, so I thought it should be revisited.  It's a wonderful recipe that I first posted in 2009.  Here it is once again in it's entirety.

Heads up coconut lovers, this pie is amazing, totally decadent, and the coconut crust is absolutely awesome.  The crust takes it from ordinary to sublime.

Back in August of 2002, I emailed the L.A. Food Times regarding a recipe that I had gotten from their S.O.S. site and lost.  We made it several times and it was one of those special to-die-for recipes, so I was not a happy camper when I misplaced the recipe.

After writing to them, they reposted the recipe for me in their food column, I came across it again today and wanted to put it on Jan CAN Cook before I lost it again.  If you want a truly wonderful dessert, forget about the calories and make this.  It’s really special.

~ jan

DEAR SOS: About five or six years ago you printed a recipe for Lawry's Coconut Pie. It had a coconut crust and was to die for. 

JAN 

DEAR JAN: This is a great pie for those who fail at making pie crusts. This crust is really simple, consisting of melted butter and coconut pressed into a pie plate. 

Lawry's Coconut Banana Cream Pie 



Active Work Time: 20 minutes * Total Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus 2 hours chilling 

COCONUT PIE SHELL 

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, plus more for pie plate 
3 cups sweetened flake coconut 

Lightly butter a 9-inch pie plate and set aside. 

Melt the 1/2 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat and brown the coconut flakes, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. They should be golden brown. Press the coconut firmly and evenly in the pan to form a shell. Chill the crust 30 minutes before filling. 

PIE FILLING 

4 egg yolks 

3/4 cup sugar, divided 

3 tablespoons cornstarch 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

1/4 cup flour 

3 cups half-and-half, divided 

Yellow food coloring 

2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

2 bananas 

1 cup whipping cream 

1 tablespoon powdered sugar 

Combine the egg yolks, 1/4 cup of the sugar, the cornstarch, salt and flour in a small bowl. Gradually add 1 cup of the half-and-half. 

Combine the remaining 2 cups half-and-half and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a 3-quart saucepan and bring just to boil over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook and stir until the mixture returns to a boil and thickens, about 1 minute. 

Remove from the heat. Stir in 2 drops of food coloring and the vanilla. Cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool. 

Slice the bananas into the pie shell. Pour the filling into the shell. 

Whip the cream with the powdered sugar until stiff. Spoon in dollops or pipe with a pastry bag around the edge of the pie. Chill 2 hours before slicing.

Update:  So many of you have found your way to this recipe via Pinterest, I appreciate all of the Pins, and hope you all enjoy this incredible pie.  I've received a few emails from people saying it was hard to cut through the crust, the only thing I can think of is that perhaps you are pressing the coconut into the pie pan, too firmly.  The majority of people seem to have no trouble with this, so I hope bit of information helps others who are going to bake this wonderful pie.  The response to it has been so positive, this is truly a one of a kind recipe.

LEMONADE PIE, NOT THE ONE YOU'RE USED TO...

by ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿณ, July 02, 2014

NewImage


I first posted this recipe back in 2009, it’s a family favorite and worth repeating.  Perfect for the 4th of July weekend, with fresh blueberries and strawberries for garnish… ~ Jan

Prep: 10 min., Freeze: 4 hrs.

Yield

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2  (5-oz.) cans evaporated milk
  • 2  (3.4-oz.) packages lemon instant pudding mix
  • 2  (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2  (3-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1  (12-oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate, completely  thawed
  • 1  (9-oz.) ready-made prepared graham cracker crust
  • Garnishes: whipped cream, fresh mint sprigs, lemon slices

Preparation

1. Whisk together evaporated milk and pudding mix in a bowl 2 minutes or until thickened.
2. Beat cream cheeses at medium speed with an electric mixer, using whisk attachment, until fluffy. Add lemonade concentrate, beating until blended; add pudding mixture, and beat until blended.
3. Pour into crust; freeze 4 hours or until firm. Garnish, if desired.

Note:  The original recipe called for partially thawed lemonade concentrate – that’s what I did, but when I incorporated it with the softened cream cheese, the cream cheese congealed into small pieces, and it was really difficult to get it smooth again.  This can easily be remedied by using thawed concentrate.  ~ jan

    This is simply the best banana cream pie you will ever eat.  I get lots of people inquiring about my post for Lawry’s Coconut Banana Cream Pie, and while it is simply amazing, Mrs. Hulling’s recipe knocks it out of the ballpark.  If you click on the image it will enlarge.  My mother wrote out this recipe from a newspaper years ago, and we’ve made it countless times.  This is a scrapbooked page I made using her handwriting.

    DEAR JAN: This is a great pie for those who fail at making pie crusts. This crust is really simple, consisting of melted butter and coconut pressed into a pie plate.

    Lawry's Coconut Banana Cream Pie

    Active Work Time: 20 minutes * Total Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus 2 hours chilling

    COCONUT PIE SHELL

    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, plus more for pie plate
    3 cups sweetened flake coconut

    Lightly butter a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.

    Melt the 1/2 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat and brown the coconut flakes, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. They should be golden brown. Press the coconut firmly and evenly in the pan to form a shell. Chill the crust 30 minutes before filling.

    PIE FILLING

    4 egg yolks

    3/4 cup sugar, divided

    3 tablespoons cornstarch

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1/4 cup flour

    3 cups half-and-half, divided

    Yellow food coloring

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    2 bananas

    1 cup whipping cream

    1 tablespoon powdered sugar

    Combine the egg yolks, 1/4 cup of the sugar, the cornstarch, salt and flour in a small bowl. Gradually add 1 cup of the half-and-half.

    Combine the remaining 2 cups half-and-half and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a 3-quart saucepan and bring just to boil over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook and stir until the mixture returns to a boil and thickens, about 1 minute.

    Remove from the heat. Stir in 2 drops of food coloring and the vanilla. Cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool.

    Slice the bananas into the pie shell. Pour the filling into the shell.

    Whip the cream with the powdered sugar until stiff. Spoon in dollops or pipe with a pastry bag around the edge of the pie. Chill 2 hours before slicing.

    Update:  So many of you have found your way to this recipe via Pinterest, I appreciate all of the Pins, and hope you all enjoy this incredible pie.  I've received a few emails from people saying it was hard to cut through the crust, the only thing I can think of is that perhaps you are pressing the coconut into the pie pan, too firmly.  The majority of people seem to have no trouble with this, so I hope bit of information helps others who are going to bake this wonderful pie.  The response to it has been so positive, this is truly a one of a kind recipe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I also blog daily at Jan's Daily Dish, and this summer I built a knock-off Pottery Barn Bulletin Board, which turned out so well, that I want people to know about it in case they want to try it.  It hasn't had a lot of interest yet on Pinterest, but if you like it, would you please take a minute and pin it.   I think a lot of people would enjoy making this at a fraction of the cost of the Pottery Barn ones.  I give detailed instructions and pictures of how to make this, it's a great family project, and the results are spectacular, use your imagination, any type of fabric can be used, I'm really happy with the way this turned out.

    Thanks for visiting my site, enjoy that pie, and if you like my bulletin board, please pin it.  ~ Jan

    Ingredients

    Makes one 11-inch pie

    Directions

    1. Wash and cut 2 of the lemons into paper-thin slices. It is very important to slice the lemons as thinly as possible; use a very sharp knife or an electric meat slicer, if on is available. Remove peel and pith of remaining lemons; slice the flesh very, very thinly, and put it with the other slices in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, and toss well to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let the mixture rest overnight, stirring occasionally.
    2. The next day, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Press one circle of pastry into an 11-inch pie plate and chill.
    3. Add beaten eggs to the lemon mixture, and mix well. Turn mixture into prepared pie shell, neatly arranging some of the lemon slices on top. Cut long, even slashes 1 inch apart in the other pastry round, and place on top of filling. Crimp edges of the pie to seal. Brush top and edges with egg-white glaze. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking for 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and shiny. Let cool on a rack before serving.
