Pie


PIE!!  A crispy crust filled with just about anything you like.  Fruit.  Creamy pudding. Nuts and such.  The world is open when it comes to pie.  Which is maybe why Gaye chose SweetyPie as this week’s theme for Eating with Ellie.

I love pie.  But I like healthy.  Hard to put those two together unless you use a recipe from Ellie Krieger, like…

this Banana Cream Pie

While many cream pies are high in calories a slice of this is only 218.  No meringue here.  Just luscious cream with lots of bananas and a crisp graham cracker crust.  

The cream is made with egg yolks, low-fat milk, unflavored gelatin and just a teeny weeny bit of sugar.  The sweetness comes more from the bananas than from the sugar itself.  {1/8 x 1/3 cup sugar per slice.}

P1100372 I game the whole pie away {knew we didn’t need it} and made a couple of mini pies for us.  Three bites each – just right!

The recipe is from Ellie’s The Food You Crave page 276.  Also, it is HERE.

For more crusty deliciousness visit with us over at Eating with Ellie.

We don’t post the recipes. We’d rather you purchase Ellie’s books.  AND if you want to cook/bake along with us the the weekly themes are on the right of the page.  Just blog and add your link.  Love to have you with us.

Nothing brings sunshine to a day like citrus.  A round juicy orange.  A tangy green lime.  A small yellow lemon all bring a taste of spring with them.

Trying to find a recipe that isn’t heavy and brings a thought of spring is not easy.  Donna Hay has TONS of lemon dishes to choose from.  I ended up making Donna’s

LEMON AND COCONUT IMPOSSIBLE PIE

This is a super easy pie to make.  I don’t know why it’s called impossible.  All the ingredients are placed in a blender and then poured into a pie plate.  I just wish we had liked it.  Oh, well.  

The recipe is from Donna’s Website -> Lemon Pie
