Win a $50 Williams Sonoma Gift Card and Mrs. Smith’s Pie!

Mrs Smiths pie

I don’t know about every baker, but many have their unicorn. I’m not saying that pie or pie crust is my unicorn, I can certainly make a pie crust, but it’s one of those things I haven’t quite mastered yet. I’ve made a few successful crusts, but I figure I’ve done it, made it, now I can mark it off my list and decide if making homemade crust is best for me.

So now I usually use a refrigerated or frozen crust when I make a pie. Some occasions have so little time to prepare for, that a frozen pre-made pie is often a wonderful choice.


I decided to give Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish pies a try. They have 4 different flavors and each one comes with its own sauce topping.

Here are the four that I tried:

  1. Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce
  2. Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce
  3. Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing
  4. Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing

I haven’t actually baked the apple or the peach yet, but after trying the cherry and the pumpkin I am sure they will be good!

Each pie comes with their own topping packet, which makes it fun to decide how you want to serve your pie.

Here are some ideas:

  • Serve plain and place topping in a small dish with a honey drizzled so guests can decide on their own
  • Spread topping all over the pie and serve with whipped cream on the side
  • Drizzle topping over sliced pie after you plate it

The pumpkin pie I chose to drizzle the cream cheese icing on after I plated it, making for a very pretty piece of dessert.

The cherry on the other hand, I actually broke up the slice in the bowl so it would appear more like a cobbler and drizzled the butter fudge sauce over the top.
