"Apple For The Teacher" Hand Pies, Frosted and Stuffed With PB&J

Pin It

Summer is coming to an end and school is back in session, which means time for some fun "Back to School treats"! This year, I was honored to be asked amongst a number of popular dessert bloggers to to participate in the 2012 Back to School Bake-off, hosted by Best Friends for Frosting and Sprinkles & Grins, a website brought to you by Betty Crocker& Cake Mate. We were asked to produce a unique and exciting new recipe or sweet treat that represents "back to school" to us, to inspire you! My first thoughts were "Apple for the teacher" and PB&J, so I knew I had to think of a way to combined the two ideas... and that is how I came up with my "Apple For The Teacher" Hand Pies, Frosted and Stuffed With PB&J. A perfect back to school treat for kids, teachers, friends and classmates.

Lemon Meringue Pie Dip For Two

Pin It

For when you don't want to bake an entire pie, this pie inspired, refreshing treat is really simple to make and only needs about 10 minutes in the oven! The luscious, smooth lemon curd is topped with a light, fluffy cloud of meringue topping. Instead of a crust, scoop with cookies or graham crackers for a quick, simple and delicious summer time treat for two. Make it in a bowl to share or in 2 ramekins to serve as individual, single serving desserts! Alternatively, you can sub the meringue topping for a "lite" store bought whipped topping and use low sugar/reduced fat cookies, to guiltlessly indulge in moderation with my small batch, summer time take on a classic dessert.
