Caramel Pecan Coconut Pie

I love, love, love this pie!  It’s one of my favorites and it’s so easy to make.  Since it’s a frozen pie and this recipe makes two pies, eat one now and save one for later.

To begin:  Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add coconut and chopped pecans; cook until lightly browned.  Set aside.


In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and condensed milk; beat well. Fold in whipped topping. Put 1/4 of the mixture into each pie shell.


Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie

Visiting family and friends during the holidays means good times, great food, and pecan or buttermilk pie (or both if your lucky).  It’s an old southern recipe and is a staple at many Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners.  I usually make two pies each time I bake, serving one and popping the other one in the freezer.  You can take it out ahead of time and let it thaw or if you are in a hurry, put it in the oven on low heat (around 170 degrees)  while you get ready.

You can find my  Southern Pecan Pie Recipe HERE.



  • 2 c sugar
  • 1/4 all purpose flour
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • Pie crust

You can use purchased pie crust or use the recipe for single pie crust found HERE.

Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together sugar and flour.  In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, butter, vanilla, and buttermilk and add to dry ingredients; pour into  Pastry Crust.

Bake at 350° for about 45 – 60 minutes or until almost set, shielding edges with aluminum foil.   Transfer to a wire rack, and cool 1 hour.

 *NOTE:  I have seen recipes vary baking times from 35 minutes to 70 minutes so watch you pie closely.  I usually bake two pies at a time in my oven and it usually takes around 60 minutes.

Southern Pecan Pie


I have been using this recipe to make pecan pies for over 30 years.  I think it was in an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I had when I was a teenager.

Pecan pie always shows up on the Thanksgiving menu because I have a massive pecan tree in my backyard  that produces the delicious native pecans.  I also have a few chickens that give me fresh eggs which I use for the pies and to make my candied pecans.  You can check out that recipe HERE.

   Pecan Pie


  • 1 Purchased pie crust or home made pie crust (see recipe below)
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups pecan halves

Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

The weather is getting a little cooler and I’m gearing up for all of those yummy desserts that comes with Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This peanut butter pie recipe  (Yesterfoood) reminds of the peanut butter pie my grandmother and I used to make.  I loved it when my grandmother made any cream pie since I always got to lick the bowl.  Oh the taste of warm pudding…licking the spoon and taking my fingers and running it along the pan to get every last drop.

Most peanut butter pie recipes are the refrigerated kind that is made with cream cheese and peanut putter.  I’ll have to admit that I do love me some peanut butter pie…lol…but it can’t compare to a freshly made cream pie topped with meringue.  If you love cream pies as much as I do, check out the recipe here.
