Coconut Crusted Cream Pie
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Coconut Crusted Cream Pie

I love custard and coconut with a little chocolate so this recipe was created.  I was just in my kitchen looking in the cabinet and this is what happened.  So good..  However, I ate the left over custard that was in the pan before dinner.  Needless to say I didn't eat my dinner :)

Custard Pie with Pine Nuts and Almonds

This is another great custard pie recipe that brings back many wonderful memories with my Nana.  Adding pine nuts and almonds brings this custard to a new level perfect for entertaining.

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking!

 

Italian Chicken Pot Pie
  • Complexity: medium

Italian Chicken Pot Pie

I hear from a lot of my friends that when they make an entire pot pie (in a pie pan), a lot of it goes to waste. Let’s make individual chicken pot pies. It is so easy!
Prepare these the night before, then when you get home from work, just preheat the oven while you’re getting settled in. Put them in the oven, and in 30 minutes you have a great dinner!
This is also a great recipe if you made a whole chicken the night before and want to use the leftovers.

No Crust Pumpkin Pie

When I was a little girl my grandmother and I would make pies but only eat the filling. As an adult I am still not a crust person! I decided to make pumpkin pie the other night and found a great way to enjoy it crustless!!

 

Paleo deep dish apple pie with nut crumble topping
  • Time: 2 hours
  • Complexity: medium

Paleo deep dish apple pie with nut crumble topping

I knew when I received my new Emily Henry pie plate there had to be a new apple pie recipe.  I decided to make a crust for the bottom but top with a nut crumble.  Not sure why but it sounded good then topped with ice cream would make this Paleo pie the best one ever!
 
When you make the crust you do want to refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes to make it easier to work with .  The crust recipe will make 2 so you can either top the pie with it or save for another recipe.  Also, rolling out the dough with parchment paper does work really well.

 

Shepard’s Pie Tart

Shepard’s Pie Tart

I get this question a lot! What is the difference between Cottage Pie and Sheppard’s pie. My kids call them both a Sheppard’s pie because if I ever mentioned the word ground lamb they would not eat a bite! Sheppard’s pie is always safe! However the technical difference between the two are: A cottage pie is prepared with beef while Sheppard’s pie is prepared with lamb. I like to combine lamb and beef and call is a Sheppard’s pie. Just makes it easier for my family… Either way the remaining ingredients are the same (mashed potatoes and vegetables).

I decided to make these little Shepard’s pie tarts and even prepared a quick pan gravy! What I love about these is I froze the rest in individual packages to enjoy whenever!

Now for the tart! I used a gluten free mix from my friends at Moon Rabbit Foods. You can use the premade pie crust at your local grocery store of make your own. Any way you prepare these yummy tarts they are a perfect anytime meal with a pan gravy and a side salad.

I am using 1/2 beef and 1/2 lamb you can use 1 pound of ground beef or 1 pound ground turkey (recommend thighs).

Spaghetti and Meatball Pie

Do you ever wonder what to do with your left over Sunday meatballs? Or you want to make spaghetti and meatballs but want something a little different! This dish makes a repeat appearance in my house especially for last minute guests. I always have marinara sauce and meatballs in my freezer.

 

Sweet Potato Cottage Pie
  • Complexity: medium

Sweet Potato Cottage Pie

A cottage pie is like a shepherd’s pie, except that it’s made with beef, not lamb. Here, a hearty filling of ground beef, salty olives, savory tomatoes, and warming spices like chile powder, cumin, and cinnamon rein in the sweetness of the creamy sweet potato topping.

 

Turkey, Spinach and Herb Pie Wrapped with Acorn Squash

Turkey, Spinach and Herb Pie Wrapped with Acorn Squash

This recipe is a fancy name for an Italian meatloaf made in a spring form pan but it really works and the acorn squash really gives it extra magical flavorful and looks beautiful.

Feel free to use frozen spinach if you have it handy. Just thaw and squeeze well with a white paper towel or clean towel.

All of the ingredients came from Shop Rite, E. Hartford, CT
