Today is National Pie Day….sounds like a reason to celebrate to me! I have rarely met a pie I didn’t like, since it is one of my favorite dessert choices. I have included a couple pie choices for you to try (just in case you are in the mood to celebrate, too!) One is more on the savory side, a great choice for brunch or a quick evening meal, and the second is one to satisfy your sweet tooth!
12 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 C. shredded swiss cheese
1/2 C. Bisquick
1/3 C. mayonnaise
3/4 C. milk
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. mayonaise
1 C. shredded lettuce
6 thin slices of tomato
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray. Layer bacon and cheese in pie plate. Stir Bisquick, 1/3 C. mayo, milk, pepper and eggs with wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate. Bake 25-30 minutes or until top is golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Spread 2 Tbsp. of mayo over top of pie. Sprinkle with lettuce. Place tomato slices on lettuce.
Butterscotch Cream Cheese Pie
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 C. cold water
1 small pkg. instant butterscotch pudding mix
1 (8 oz.) tub whipped topping, thawed and divided
In large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. On low speed, beat in water and pudding mix until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping and pour into crust. Chill 2 hours or until set. Garnish with remaining whipped topping.
