Chicken Pastel is a hearty casserole dish that is usually served with pie crust on top. Not to be mistaken with the Brazilian Pastel, the crust of this dish is very similar to that of buko pie and empanada.

It has been a while since I made Peach Pie. Back then, I use fresh ripe peaches. Since time is of the essence these days, I am looking for alternative ingredients that can speed up the process. For this recipe, we will be using canned sliced peaches. Making your own Peach Pie is very easy….
Shepherd’s Pie is a meat pie made of ground beef, some vegetables, and mashed potato.
Some say that this pie dish is a variation of Cottage Pie — which is made of minced beef or lamb. Instead of using mashed potatoes, Cottage pie is traditionally made by topping slices of potatoes over the minced meat.The potato arrangement that looked like tiles of a roof might be the reason why it was called such.
This delicous meat pie recipe is worth all the effort. I’m sure that you will enjoy eating this pie dish during anytime of the day.
Pumpkin Pie is a type of dessert pie made from pumpkin. This delicious dessert is usually made between autumn to early winter when pumpkins are just about right to harvest. However, due to the availability of canned pumpkins, this delightful pie dessert can be made all year round.
The procedure in making pumpkin pie is simple; it is almost the same as making a sweet potato pie. The ingredients are not costly and should be readily available in your local groceries.
I used the canned pumpkin for this recipe, but you can also use fresh pumpkin if it is available. All you need to do is boil the pumpkin until it becomes soft then mash it the same way you do with mashed potato.
Apple Pie is a type of fruit pie with sweet baking apple mixture as filling. I think that this pie does not need any introduction, since it has become one of the most popular pies around.
You might be enjoying Apple Pie since you were a child, but do you know which apple varieties are used to make this delightful pie? There are specific apple varieties that are recommended to be used in making Apple Pie; they are often called baking apples. Baking apples are usually crisp and acidic, but not too sweet. Baking Bites lists some of the baking apples that you can use.
Are you ready to make your own Apple Pie? I’m sure you are. If you are having any doubts about anything, forget all about it. It does not mean that you need to have extensive cooking or baking experience in order for you to make a good one. You should be fine as long as you know how to mix ingredients and use the oven.
Banana Cream Pie is a type of pie filled with a rich filling that is usually made from milk, cornstarch or flour, and eggs. The main ingredient, banana, is usually placed at the center layer between the filling.
This simple pie dessert recipe is so rich and delicious. It has the right amount of sweetness and the taste is heavenly. Another good thing that I liked about this recipe is it does not involve baking.
By simply looking at the picture, you’ll notice how good it looks. I know that you’ll all agree (you should). My wife made this and she’ll be reading this article soon. Have I told you that this is my favorite pie? 🙂
Here the pastry dough recipe that I used to make the flaky crust of the Turkey Pot Pie. This recipe is different from the previous pastry dough recipe that I published. The previous recipe is what I use to make basic pie crusts, while I use this recipe whenever I want my pie crust to be flakier.
Before proceeding, let me remind you that making your own crust will not be easy: you’ll need to devote some time and effort. Be patient and persistent.
The biggest challenge that I encountered in making the crust came during the rolling process. It took some time and effort before I was able to flatten the dough in one piece. I guess this is the price that I had to pay in order to have a pie crust with a flaky texture. Everything was worth it, though.
Turkey Pot Pie is a type of baked pie encased with a flaky crust on top and bottom. This is somewhat similar to Chicken Pastel, although the later is only covered by a flaky crust on top.
I made this pie out of the leftover turkey that we had for thanksgiving. Instead of refrigerating the turkey right away, I carved and diced the remaining meat and placed them in the freezer for future use.
Using leftovers to make a new dish is a good way to save money on food. It also feels good to know that nothing is wasted. A word of advice though: always make sure that whatever leftover that you are using is still in good condition before attempting to recycle.
Do you want to bake your own pie? I’m sure, you do. While preparing all the ingredients for the filling, don’t you think that it is proper to make your own pie crust too, sometimes?
We all know that ready-made pie crusts can be bought in grocery stores and we can even choose the kind of crust that we like. There is nothing bad about buying ready-made pie crusts because it saves a lot of time and effort; when in a hurry, I use them too.
But, how would you feel if you are able to make a pie without using ready-made pie crusts? That will feel good, wouldn’t it? You can develop self confidence and you will always be ready if in case ready-made pie crusts are not available.
Here’s how I do it.
Craving for something tasty and comforting? You’re in luck. I recently made myself a very lovely Sweet Potato Pie. This is how I reward myself after working long hours on my day job. Care for a slice?
Sweet Potato Pie is a comfort food to most of the people I know (including myself). I’m not surprised why a lot of people love this dessert. It is nourishing; it tastes great; and it does not cost much. To top all that, did you know that making one is not complicated, at all?
Have the ingredients ready and grab your baking tools, I’m about to show you how to pamper yourselves in the comfort of your own homes through this Sweet Potato Pie recipe.
One of the all-time favorite “pasalubong” is the Buko pie. This sweet and rich pie is made from young coconut meat which is locally known as “Buko” meat. “Pasalubong”, on the other hand, is a gift for a family member or friend bough by a traveler returning from a trip.
Buko pies are mostly sold in the southern parts of Luzon. The places that are known to make great tasting Buko pies are Laguna, Batangas, and Tagaytay (a city in the province of Cavite). Within these places lie series of pasalubong stores that sell this famous pie and a lot more sweet delicacies such as espasol, yema, ube halaya, puto, kutsinta, and many others. Whenever I’m in one of those areas, I usually purchase from a store called Collette’s. Well, that is just my personal preference. In your opinion, which stores sell the best buko pie?
Egg Pie is a sweet Filipino dessert that resembles an egg custard. Though famous in the Philippines and can be seen even in local bakeries, this delicious dessert has not made its own identity yet and is often confused as a giant egg custard or something else. Well, now is the right time to show-off some of our country’s sweet indulgence.
When I think of egg pie, I remember a slice of pie that I buy in our local bakery that amounts to something like P3.50 (7 cents) a piece – but that was a long time ago; I’m not sure how much a slice cost nowadays. Does anyone have an idea?
I’m trying to get your opinion at first when I asked in our Custard Cake post if it interests you to learn how to make egg pie. What I got was an astonishing “Yes” and requests for this dessert are still piling up.
There is no need for waiting. You can now make your own egg pie at home for personal consumption or even make a small business out of it.
Try this recipe and let me know what you think.
