Pecan Cranberry Butter Tarts

Rating: 5 stars 16
These are the product of early morning experimentation modifying an old butter tart recipe that I've been using for years. They are a combination of sweet and tart, look beautiful, and disappear very quickly!

Eggnog Pie

Rating: 4 stars 5
A pie for the microwave. A graham cracker crust may be substituted for pre-baked pie crust. Creating this pie is a bit to do, but well worth the time spent!

Bev's Chocolate Pie

This recipe was given to me by a dear friend at a church dinner. This pie never is runny. If you opt to use a frozen prepared pie crust, use the deep dish kind.

You can use powdered or pasteurized egg whites in the meringue.
Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Fresh lemon juice and lemon zest make this lemon meringue pie filling tart and lovely. And when it's poured into a waiting crust, topped with billows of meringue, and baked, it's downright dreamy.
