Pucker up…!

  LEMON CUSTARD CREAM PIE This is such a gorgeous, summery dessert!  Tart, creamy, and light, it’s made with Greek yogurt to make it a little more figure-friendly, but no one will ever guess it’s low sugar and not completely sinful.   A few fresh blueberries or blackberries folded into this would be absolutely delish!

If you love peanut butter like I love peanut butter…

PEANUT BUTTER PIE WOW.  This is one rich pie.  I made it into a PIE once, actually…since then I freeze it in slightly rounded 1/4 cup portions and stick it away for a frozen nap. (Out of sight, out of mind……  oh, who am I kidding?  I know it’s there, but it’s harder to binge…

If you make the pie ahead and wait until just before serving to do the meringue, it will be high and fluffy…

Sitting on an orange cloud!

ORANGE CHIFFON PIE I don’t know if you love soft, fluffy, airy, light, sweet, simple, gorgeous desserts…(!)…if not, this may change your mind. This pie is not heavy or dense, so after a protein meal it’s wonderfully wonderful! (If you don’t like the thought of using raw egg whites, the powdered meringue would work, also….

Sweet Summer!
