Pie Night

When I was a little girl we would gather with our whole extended family and try tons of different and delicious pies on PIE NIGHT! It was one of my favorite Thanksgiving week traditions as a child. Tonight we are bringing it back!

For the record I've never made a pie before. So I'm hoping these turn out to be delicious!

I'm making OREO PIE and SMORES PIE. Every year we just go buy a pumpkin pie at Costco for Thanksgiving Day so I wanted to try something different. I'll let you know how they taste!

Here are the recipes if you want to try a different tasty pie this year too!

Smores Pie


  • 1 stick Softened Butter
  • ½ cups White Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 7 ounces, weight Container Of Marshmallow Creme
  • 8 whole (1.55 Oz Bars) Hershey's Chocolate Bars, Unwrapped
  • 1 cup Marshmallows
  • ¼ cups Chocolate Chips

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9″ pie pan with baking spray.
    In a large bowl beat butter and sugar together until combined, then add egg and vanilla and stir them in. Stir in flour, graham cracker crumbs and baking powder.
    Divide the dough in half. Press half the dough in the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie pan. Evenly spread the Marshmallow Creme over the bottom crust. Separate chocolate squares and place on top of the Marshmallow Creme. Place 1 cup of marshmallows on top.
    Using the remaining crust, pat sections of dough on top of and around all the marshmallows (they will still show through and that is great!). Sprinkle with 1/4 cup chocolate chips, then bake 20 minutes until lightly browned.
    Remove pan from oven and set it on a wire rack. Cool completely before cutting, or you will have a gooey mess. Not that I know …
