4th Annual #LovethePie Party & Whirlpool Range Giveaway {ended}!


Pie lovers from all over the internet will gather here this week to celebrate the great American icon sharing recipes at Love the Pie and a chance to win a new Whirlpool range.

“People love to make pie for a variety of different reasons. For some, it’s a welcome, tactile relief from the tedium of their nine to five job. For others, it’s about creating a family tradition or a legacy they can pass on to their children. For still others, it’s all about sharing and the sheer joy that comes from making a pie and giving it away to a neighbor or friend.” ~ Ken Haedrich, The Pie Academy

Pie Fun Facts:

According to a 2008 survey by Crisco® and American Pie Council:
• Nearly one out of five (19%) of Americans prefer apple pie, followed by pumpkin (13%), pecan (12%), banana cream (10%) and cherry (9%)
• Pie just isn’t for after-dinner dessert. Thirty-five percent of Americans say they’ve had pies for breakfast. Pies as lunch (66%) and midnight snacks (59%) also have a popular following.
• When asked what dessert Americans would prefer a friend or family member bring to their house for a holiday dinner, pie was the winner with 29%. Cake (17%) and cookies (15%) rounded out the top-three spots.
• More than one-third of Americans have eaten pie in bed
• Nearly one in four women believe that they make the best pie – better than Mom or Grandma
• Pumpkin pie was first introduced to the holiday table at the pilgrim’s second Thanksgiving in 1623.

If you ask me, the best thing about Thanksgiving is choosing which pie to sample first.

Ok, so many pies are baked right?  You could bake some really amazing pies in a new Whirlpool Gold® 6.2 cu. ft. Capacity Induction Range with TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection Cooking System

Whirlpool Induction Range with Convection Cooking at

About six weeks ago, I got all new Whirlpool appliances in my kitchen.  I love opening the 29 cu. ft refrigerator and being able to easily see the food inside, no more left overs are left in a dark spot behind the milk.  I love how I can run a small load in the Dishwasher using only the Top Rack Wash Option and how it automatically selects the right wash and dry settings for my load by using two separate sensors to measure temperature, soil level and load size! I love all the extra counter space I gained by installing my new microwave over my range, and it’s SO easy to clean with the CleanRelease® non-stick interior.  But my biggest love has to be my new range with induction and convection cooking!

Here are a few of the features of the Whirlpool Gold® 6.2 cu. ft. Capacity Induction Range with TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection Cooking System

  • AccuBake® Temperature Management System Achieve uniform baking results every time with the AccuBake® temperature management system. A built-in sensor monitors oven temperature and controls the cooking elements to deliver consistent, delicious results every time.
  • TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection Cooking System Seal in flavor and juices with the TimeSavor™ Plus true convection cooking system. A rear fan and a third heating element in the back of the oven circulate hot air over, under and around food to bake quicker than an oven without true convection. TimeSavor™ Plus true convection cooking roasts up to 30% faster.
  • AquaLift™ Self-Clean technology  delivers easy and odor-free oven cleaning in only 50 minutes. Our most energy-efficient cleaning self-cleaning cycle available uses water and low-heat to release baked-on foods from the bottom of the oven. When the cleaning cycle is complete, soils and excess water can be easily removed with a dry towel.
  • Induction cooking technology This advanced cooktop offers faster, more efficient cooking technology and easier cleaning. The 9″ 3,200-watt Induction Boost element even boils water in half the time by transferring energy directly into any magnetic cookware.
  • Rapid PreheatRapid Preheat uses all of the elements and a rear fan to heat the oven quickly and efficiently. Now you can save time when single-rack baking with 25% faster preheating.
  • EasyView™ extra-large oven window Keep the heat inside your oven while checking on dishes through the industry’s largest window available. Now you can keep a close eye on cooking progress without opening the door or disturbing oven temperature with the new EasyView™ extra-large oven window.

Amazing right?!  I love being in the kitchen, but now, I never want to leave the kitchen!

My friends at Whirlpool love pie too and would like to give one lucky TidyMom reader the same range I have and love, Whirlpool Gold® 6.2 cu. ft. Capacity Induction Range with TimeSavor™ Plus True Convection Cooking System

    I don`t have `my own`pie recipe, but I do have my grandma`s “secret” cherry pie recipe:

    1 box roll out Pillsbury Pie Crust
    1 can cherry pie filling

    Roll out one pie crust. Dump in cherry pie filling. Roll out other pie crust. Cut in strips and cover cherry pie filling.

    Seriously. My grandma was a great cook (noodles from scratch, the whole she-bang) and I loved the cherry pie she made every year. When I was married, I asked for the recipe so I could make it myself. And this is what she told me. It must have been so great because she made it with lots of love:)

    Honey Lemon Meringue Pie
    Adapted from the America’s Test Kitchen
    1 baked and cooled 9 inch pie crust
    1 1/2 cups cold water
    3/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup cornstarch
    1/8 tsp salt
    6 large egg yolks
    1 Tbs grated lemon zest
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
    2 Tbs coconut oil
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup water
    3 large egg whites, room temperature
    1/4 tsp cream of tartar
    pinch salt
    1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    For the filling: Bring water, honey, cornstarch and salt to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly. When mixture starts to turn translucent, whisk in the egg yolks, 2 at a time. Whisk in lemon zest, then lemon juice, and then coconut oil. Return the mixture to brief simmer until thickened, then remove pan from heat. Pour filling into the baked and cooled pie crust. Lay a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling and refrigerate until filling is cold, or about 2 hours.
    For the meringue: Adjust oven rack to middle position, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring sugar, and water to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened and syrupy (about 235 on a candy thermometer), 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm. In a large bowl, whip the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt together with electric mixer on medium low speed until foamy, about 1 minute. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and whip the whites until shiny and soft peaks form, 1 to 3 minutes. Reduce mixer to medium and slowly add hot syrup, avoiding whisk and sides of bowl. Add vanilla, increase mixer speed to medium high and continue to whip mixture until cooled slightly and very thick and shiny, 3 to 6 minutes. Dollop meringue evenly over top of pie and spread on top of pie, making sure it adheres to the crust. Bake until meringue is golden brown about 6 minutes. Let pie cook until filling is set, about 2 hours.

    Sugar Cream Pis

    1 C Sugar
    4 T flour
    1/4 t salt
    1 Pint heavy whipping cream
    1 t vanilla

    Preheat oven to 350
    Mix dry ingredients then blend in cream and vanilla.
    Cover with foil (be sure it’s not touching the filling!) and bake for 60 minutes. Uncover and bake until slightly browned on top (Don’t take your eyes off of it, you don’t want it to boil over!). Refrigerate uncovered overnight or for several hours. Cover with plastic wrap, will be just as delicious 4 days later!

    My favorite pie is actually one that I found on allrecipes and it’s called Crustless Cranberry Pie. It’s the perfect bite of sweet and tart that keeps you coming back for more.

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup white sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups cranberries
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9 inch pie pan.
    Combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cranberries and the walnuts, and toss to coat. Stir in the butter, beaten eggs, and almond extract. If you are using frozen cranberries, the mixture will be very thick. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

    Deep dish apple pie
    4 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, quartered, and cored
    1 lemon, zested
    1 orange, zested
    2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon
    1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 teaspoon to sprinkle on top
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

    1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Cut each apple quarter in thirds crosswise and combine in a bowl with the zests, juices, 1/2 cup sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
    Roll out half the pie dough and drape it over a 9- or 10-inch pie pan to extend about 1/2-inch over the rim. Don’t stretch the dough; if it’s too small, just put it back on the board and re-roll it.
    Fill the pie with the apple mixture. Brush the edge of the bottom pie crust with the egg wash so the top crust will adhere. Top with the second crust and trim the edges to about 1-inch over the rim. Tuck the edge of the top crust under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp the 2 together with your fingers or a fork. Brush the entire top crust with the egg wash, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar, and cut 4 or 5 slits.
    Place the pie on a sheet pan and bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until the crust is browned and the juices begin to bubble out. Serve warm.

    Apple Pie
    Recipe by Our Best Bites

    Pastry for double-crust pie
    6 cups peeled, sliced Granny Smith apples (about 1 1/2 pounds)
    1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    1/2 c. sugar
    1/2 c. brown sugar
    2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
    2 Tbsp. butter, chopped

    Roll half of the pastry to 1/8″ thickness on a surface that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Gently place in a 9″ pieplate; set aside.

    Preheat your oven to 450. Combine lemon juice and apples in a large bowl.. Combine 1/2 c. sugar and next four ingredients, mixing well. Spoon over apple mixture, tossing gently. Spoon filling evenly into pastry shell and dot with chopped butter.

    Roll remaining pie crust 1/8″ thick (see “Pie Crusts” for ideas on how to top your crust, including instructions on how to make a lattice crust). When your top is how you want it, bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 50 minutes more. Definitely keep an eye on the pie; you may need to make a shield if it starts getting too brown. If you get worried, go ahead and make a square of foil, cut a center out of the foil, and place it on the pie so the foil covers the edge of the pie.

    Such a good pie, and great for beginners! This was the first time ever making one from scratch and it turned out great and tasted sooo good!

    Apple Frangipani Tart
    1.5 cup(s) all-purpose flour
    .5 teaspoon(s) salt
    .5 cup(s) butter or margarine, cut up
    2 tablespoon(s) vegetable shortening
    Frangipane Filling:
    1 can(s) (7- to 8-ounce) almond paste, crumbled
    4 tablespoon(s) butter or margarine, softened
    .5 cup(s) sugar
    .25 teaspoon(s) salt
    2 large eggs
    .25 cup(s) all-purpose flour
    Apple Topping:
    3 medium Granny Smith apples
    .25 cup(s) apricot jam
    1 tablespoon(s) almond-flavor liqueur

    Prepare pastry: In large bowl, combine flour and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives used scissors-fashion, cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    Sprinkle 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, into flour mixture, mixing lightly with fork after each addition, until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
    Shape dough into disk. Wrap disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes, until firm enough to roll, or overnight. (If chilled overnight, let stand 30 minutes at room temperature before rolling.)
    Preheat oven to 425° F. On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 14-inch round. Ease dough round into 11-inch round tart pan with removable bottom. Fold overhang in and press dough against side of pan so it extends 1/8 inch above rim. To prevent shrinking, refrigerate tart shell 30 minutes or freeze 10 minutes to firm pastry slightly before baking.
    Line tart shell with foil; fill with pie weights, dry beans, or uncooked rice. Bake tart shell 15 minutes; remove foil with weights and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until golden. If shell puffs up during baking, gently press it down with back of spoon. Transfer tart shell in pan to wire rack. Turn oven control to 375° F.
    Prepare frangipane filling: In food processor with knife blade attached, pulse almond paste, butter, sugar, and salt until mixture is crumbly. Add eggs and pulse until smooth, scraping bowl with rubber spatula if necessary. (There may be some tiny lumps remaining.) Add flour and pulse just until combined.
    Peel, halve, and core apples. Very thinly slice apples. Spoon almond filling into warm tart shell and spread evenly. Arrange apple slices over filling, closely overlapping in concentric circles. Bake tart 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a knife. Cool tart slightly on wire rack.
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat jam and liqueur over low heat 2 minutes or until jam melts. Press jam mixture through sieve into small bowl. Brush jam mixture over warm apple slices. Finish cooling tart on wire rack. Remove side of pan and slide tart onto serving plate. Serve tart at room temperature or refrigerate up to 1 day. If tart is refrigerated, let stand at room temperature at least 1 hour before serving.

    Carmel Crunch Apple Pie

    2 unbaked pie crust or your favorite pie crust recipe
    6-8 apples cored, peeled, sliced (pie is great with any type of apple but I usually use Grany Smith)
    1 T. Flour
    1 T. Sugar
    1T. lemon Juice
    1/3 c. cream
    1/2 c. sugar
    3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
    1/4c. flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 c. broken pecans(optional)
    8 carmels or about 1/2 to 2/3 cup carmel apple dip
    2 t. water
    1/4 c. butter

    Toss apples with lemon juice, sugar and flour. Combine sugar, graham cracker crumbs, flour, salt, cinnamon, and pecans. Arrange 1/2 the apple mixture in pie shell and sprinkle with 1/2 the dry ingredients. Add remaining apples and dry ingrediants and then drizzle with the cream. I like to cram the apples down so they are nice and snug in there. Heat together over medium high heat the carmels, water and butter until melted then drizzle over the pie. Top with remaining crust. Plce small slits in the crust for vents. Bake at 350 for and hour to hour and a half or until crust is golden brown. Enjoy!

    I love this recipe!!

    Peach Hand Pies

    Makes 16 to 18

    For the pastry crust:
    1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
    8 teaspoons granulated sugar
    3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 16 pieces
    4 to 6 tablespoons ice cold water

    For filling:
    2 cups peeled, diced peaches (can substitute other fruits, keep the measure the same)
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    pinch of salt

    1 egg, beaten with a bit of water
    coarse sugar for sprinkling, optional

    To prepare the dough, add the flour, sugar and salt to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until it forms a sandy crumb. Starting with 4 tablespoons, sprinkle the water over the flour-butter mixture and pulse until it forms a ball, about 45 seconds to 1 minute. Add another tablespoon or two of water if necessary. Dump onto an unfloured counter and form into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic or waxed paper and let chill until firm, but still pliable, about 1 hour (you can quick chill it in the freezer for 20 minutes too, which is what I tend to do while pitting the cherries).

    Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

    For the filling, combine the cherries, sugar and all purpose flour, or tapioca flour if using, and salt. Stir to mix well and set aside.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 to 1/16-inch thick. Cut out 5-inch circles. It’s okay to re-roll the scraps until all the dough is used up. Place cut circles on the prepared baking sheets (do not forget to place on parchment before forming pockets or they will be too delicate to transfer). Spoon 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling into the center of each circle, fold over, making sure the filling is not spilling out the edges, and crimp the edges with a fork. Pierce tops with the tines of a fork to create steam vents.

    Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar, if using. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, until golden. Let sit on sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    PB Pie!
    8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

    This is my all time favorite pie recipe. So delicious & perfect for Fall! :)

    Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

    1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust
    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored
    and sliced
    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
    2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
    3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

    I’m not a food blogger so i didn’t blog this, but my all time favorite pie is my stepmom’s apple pie. Homedade crust (1 1/3 c flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup shortening or lard, 5-6 tbsp ice water) filled with apples. A mix of three kinds (Granny Smith, Braeburn, Gala, etc), tbsp flour, juice of 1/2 lemon, sugar and cinnamon to taste (varies on sweetness of apples). Dot with butter, top with crust. Bake. Yum.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content
    I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being
