If you have 1 of these….
Then you need 2 of these…
And maybe a few of these….
To make sure that everyone gets a piece of Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies topped with Extra Creamy Reddi-Wip® after dinner.
Our youngest son was home from college during the Thanksgiving break and you would have thought that a full meal plan wasn’t included in his tuition (it is), or that he hadn’t eaten since leaving in August (he doesn’t look like he’s skipped any meals!)
Almost every night hours after dinner was done and the kitchen was cleaned, I would hear him downstairs rummaging through the frig. Opening up the freezer door and looking through the pantry trying to find something else to eat…oh and it would be taken into his room and not eaten at the table…you know that “dorm life“.
Anywho, I know how much he loves desserts, so I wanted to make sure that he could have all that he wanted. However, I didn’t want to find an empty pie tin in his room, on the dresser or under the bed, leaving us with no dessert the next day so I came up with a creative way to serve it.
I went shopping at Walmart before the holiday to stock up on a few Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies and a can of Extra Creamy Reddi-Wip®. Since both of my sons love Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies, I purchased two, a Dutch Apple and a Cherry Crunch to satisfy them both.
I usually bake these dessert pies hours before cooking dinner because it allows them time to sit and cool and to be at the right temperature to keep the Reddi-Wip® from melting too quickly.
Oh and by the way, before baking the pies, wrap a little piece of Aluminum Foil around the edges of the crust to keep it from burning because it cooks faster than the pie’s filling.
I thought this would be a creative way in which to serve the Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies to ensure that everyone could have a piece of each flavor.
Allow the pies to cool then scoop out a little from each alternating between the Dutch Apple and Cherry Crunch, and place it into a Mason Jar and top with a generous amount of Reddi-Wip®.
So when “My Refrigerator Raider” made a midnight run to the kitchen, he wasn’t tempted to take the entire pie to his room and we all had a piece for dessert for the next few days.
Do you have a “refrigerator raider” in your home?
