On Thanksgiving, I was in charge of the desserts. Lucky me! Over the years, my family has been known to have almost one pie per person, and I was not about to make 6 pies from scratch! This is where Mrs Smith’s came to the recue.
Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish pies
I decided that 6 pies for 6 people (well 5 and half since my niece is only 4) is just crazy talk, so I decided to make 4 pies. I know, this is still way more than most families would have. My family just likes to have a variety and PLENTY of leftovers! So, I made the new Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish pies. There are four flavors, so I made one of each:
- Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce
- Signature Deep DishCherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce
- Signature Deep Dish Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing
- Signature Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing
Have you heard about these new pies yet? They each come with a packet of sauce so you can add as much (or as little) as you like to each piece of pie. Above is the Pumpkin Pie and below is a slice of the Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce (and a scoop of ice cream). The apple pie was my favorite! It was great having the caramel sauce to add on top…it was delicious.
My niece was so excited to see 4 pies. She asked if she could try all of them. We let her have a bit of each one. Doesn’t she look so happy with the four plates in front of her? Don’t worry, she didn’t eat all of them. She said the cherry was her favorite.
Needless to say, having these pies already made and ready to heat up in the oven was SO much easier than making them from scratch. The last thing I wanted to do was spend tons of time in the kitchen making desserts. Instead, thanks to Mrs. Smith’s pies, I was able to spend more time with my family over the holiday.
