I’m fresh off a pie-baking frenzy, something I’d highly recommend if you find yourself with some time on your hands. Pie is one of the most beloved desserts there is, and if you have the chance to try your hand at these award-winning pies like I did, you’ll understand just how true it is!
Each of these three pies won 1st-place at the Pillsbury Pie Crust Baking Championships – an annual competition that happens at state fairs around the country. I started with Charlotte Rymph’s recipe for Toasted Coconut-Pecan Pie. Now this is the twist on pecan pie we’ve all been waiting for! It’s got the classic taste that pecan pie is known for but the unique addition of coconut flakes makes it even more delectable. You’ll be amazed how well these flavors work together.
