Re: Mount Prospect Historical Society

Kiakar ... I don't know if substitute sugar would work either say like splendor. Probably wouldnt give it enought texture. Oh well, this is getting to be a dieter's special delight. If it would work. Even Viv could eat it(the whole pie that it)

I heard you can bake with splendor, but I haven't tried it yet. Should try it. I don't know how it would be mixed with bread crumbs, since it is so fine. Better mix blueberries in for Viv. :smileywink:

I love pumpkin pie. Other than that, my very favorite is homemade deep dish peach cobbler! One made like in a 9x12 dish with the top crust in a lattice across it and enough cinnamony flour inside that when the juices mix with it you get that wonderful thick filling thats so tasty! Love that. Berry pies, I have never liked blackberry, they grow wild here and you can kill yourself trying to pick them from the prickly bushes but I just dont like the taste of blackberry, blueberry yes! Chocolate cream is good. Strawberry cream cheese is good. But for just a really yummy pie that to me is an old comfort food, its definately a homemade peach cobbler. :smileyhappy:




I'm gaining weight just reading this! It all sounds soooo delicious!! I think I'll go make some banana bread for my kids. They love it and we always have some over ripe bananas around. I may even get a piece of it if I'm really quick. Otherwise I could lose a finger if I don't reach fast enough. My kids are pigs!




LOL. Making me hungry for sweets this convo is. :smileywink: I love banana bread. My mom used to make it all the time. I lost her recipe. Can you share yours?

Someone told me about blackberry and apple pie. I wonder what's that like. :smileyindifferent:

Thanks so much for the Blackberry Pie recipe. I'm going to make it this weekend. I cheat and use Pillsbury pie crusts in the refrigerator sector of the grocery.

You are so right! Kathy S., I will have mine with buttermilk! I mean the kind with the butter in it, the fat, fat, fat, kind.


My dad used to drink buttermilk. But I just can't handle *chunks* in my milk! :smileyvery-happy:

Stephanie ... My son (11) did some research on one-room schoolhouses last year. I've directed him to your site. He thinks it's fabulous.




Awesome ... I hope he enjoyed it. We interviewed people in the area that attended one room schoolhouses. They told us their experiences. It turned to be a cute discussion. It airs on our local tv station.

Cindy,
We have it often so I cheat too and just use the recipe on the back of the Bisquik or Jiffy mix box. It's so easy and good too! Let me know if you can't get it from there or want a different one.

Re: Cindersue & Blackberry Pie

Cindersue--

The pie is made! Thank goodness I put it on a cookie sheet because I used more than the 4 cups blackberries that your recipe said because I had a deep dish pie crust (frozen because that's all they had at the store I went to). I have eaten all the "run off" on the cookie sheet and it is so good. Can't wait to eat the pie tonight. It looks pretty, too.

Thanks again for the recipe.

Gee I wish we could get that around here. Maybe they could put some of those video clips on the website. Probably cost a fortune though. I would love for my kids to be able to see those interviews.
