Thank you to all who joined in for show and tell this past Friday and your sweet comments on my baby cross-stitch hangers! Did you know that Friday was also National Pie Day? I heard about it from Mrs. U who has several wonderful pie recipes on her blog right now.
When I mentioned the special occasion to Phillip he suggested Cheesecake Pie, so the girls and I put on our aprons and got to work.
1 (9-inch) baked graham cracker crust
1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In large mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into prepared pie crust. Chill 3 hours or until set.
We also made RuthAnn's Hillbilly Spaghetti Pie. She uses a cast iron pan, but since I don't have one, a 9 x 13 pan worked great, too.
A few minutes under the broiler got the mozzarella nice and bubbly. Definitely a repeat recipe!
This week we'll be getting ready for Grace's 11th birthday. I can't believe the 1st of February is right around the corner!
