I don’t know if I’ve officially said this, but I love baking. I started baking because my mom never makes Christmas cookies (she might on occasion). So I made a huge batch of cookies one year and have been hooked on baking ever since. I’ve baked hundreds of cookies and even made my own recipe recently, but I’ve really only baked cookies.
There have been the couple of cheesecakes that I’ve made (New York cheesecakes), but that’s about it. Recently, I’ve decided to try my hand at pies and that’s when baking suddenly became frustrating. I can not, for the life of me, bake a perfect pie crust. I’m starting to get there though! I’ve only been baking cream pies and I kinda want to stick to that for a while. I’ve tried banana cream and chocolate and because I’m such a huge stickler for making everything from scratch, I ended up making the puddings from scratch and those turned out delicious. Like really delicious.
I’ve never been a big pie fan so I’m not sure how many different cream or pudding pies (whatever they may be called) are out there. I just discovered a butterscotch cream pie that I’m going to have to hunt down a recipe for a couple days ago. So what other pies are out there in the cream/pudding category? I know: banana cream, chocolate, butterscotch, and coconut cream. Are there any others?
And because I love you all (or maybe I want to make you hungry) I shall leave you with a few pictures of my latest baking/cooking caveats! Take a look at the following pictures at your own discretion. You just might get hungry. Don’t be afraid to click on the pictures to make them bigger.
