What a Cutie Pie – A Giveaway!

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a Pie Social and have not been able to shake the images of all those adorable and yummy pies.  I wanted to make them all!  But how could I do that, I wondered, when I am not really a pie baker?

Then it hit me…make an easy mini pie!  We all have to start somewhere, right?

 I really am curious if kids make pies, especially after seeing Luci’s Blue Ribbon Pie. So I’ve decided to do another giveaway. More on that in a minute. First I want to show you how mine turned out.

My first one was a Strawberry-Banana Pie

 Put a few slices of banana into a graham cracker mini-crust

add some strawberry yogurt

smooth it out with the back of a spoon

Slice a strawberry but not all the way through

then, using both hands, gently spread the strawberry into a fan

and place on top, right in the center

Add a slice of banana.  I put mine vertically, you can do it another way if you want to.

Then I added a tiny piece of mint.  Kind of looks like a little hair pie-bow…cute huh?

Easy, right?  By this time, I was feeling confident so I decided to try something with chocolate.

This one is inspired by the niece and nephew who love S’mores!   Aren’t they cute?!

Preheat the oven to 350. Then put a few chocolate chips in a graham cracker crust

add a few mini marshmallows

Top with more chocolate chips and a few marshmallows.  Bake for 3-5 minutes until chocolate is kind of melty and marshmallows are beginning to brown.

Let it cool for a few minutes and then dive in.  You are in for a chocolatey, gooey, yummy treat!  So good and sooooo easy!

After that one, I was really on a roll.
So I made a third one inspired by my love of Sonic’s Cherry Limeade.

Put your favorite cherry ice cream and limeade concentrate into a mixing bowl.

Whisk till it’s all smooth and creamy.  Taste it and see if it needs a little more lime or cherry flavor.  Mine needed a teeny bit more cherry.

So, I added a drizzle of cherry juice.

Pour it into the pie shell and stick in the freezer for about an hour or so.

Top with a slice of lime and a cherry!

Now, back to other people’s pie baking days.  I thought it would be fun to hear from you and reward those pie memories with a giveaway.  The prize is an adorable monogrammed kid’s apron from Bundle of Stitches

All you have to do is leave a comment answering this question:

“What kind of pie have you made?”

Once there are lots of great pie stories, I will do a random drawing for the kid’s apron winner from

    Love love your new web site. I’m so proud of you!!!! You do know, not many people have what it takes to accomplish what you have, starting your own business, doing all the marketing, hours and hours of data entry to create two web sites, testing countless recipes, and so much more. The best part of it is you’ve done it all thru prayer and guidance from God.
    Love Mom.
