If you have 1 of these….

College student home for the holidays

Then you need 2 of these…

my son loves dessert pies

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.

Pies are great for holiday desserts

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.

      There were the perfect dessert last week after eating all that Turkey.

      Sounds wonderful! Nobody’s home but me, unless the grandchildren visit. That means I can and will eat anything that doesn’t bite me first–and I’m free to eat it all! Free, that is, until the calories come home to roost!

        I know what you mean, I love eating just a little something decadent until I get on the scale the next day. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    I don’t normally have a refrigerator raider, but this week my son has been on steroids for a virus and he has been eating like crazy! He would have loved for me to have these pies in a jar for him to chow down on. [client]

      Thank you. It may very well happen so be prepared!

    I really like this idea of two pies & topping in a mason jar. I will be looking to get some mason jars next week. Thanks Sis.

    Yep I do! My two girls! They eat up everything!!!!!

    1. DelBlogger

      They are so tiny – I can’t imagine that!

    That’s a great idea for serving desserts 🙂 I kiddos don’t raid the refrigerator yet, but I know it will happen one day. Now they just say, “Mom I’m hungry”.

    1. DelBlogger

      Kids are always hungry, especially for foods not in the house! Hope you have a nice evening.

    This post is so cute. Yes, college kids are refrigerator raiders aren’t they! #productreviewparty

      Thank you. Yes, he just stands there staring into the frig or cabinet like…”there’s nothing in here to eat!”

    Those look delicious! What a great idea!

    1. DelBlogger

      Thank you, trust me, he can eat more that his weight!

    2. DelBlogger

      Thank you, he will be home on Friday to raid once again!

    That looks so good. I love me some apple pie. #ProductReviewParty

      Especially with vanilla ice cream on top!

    This is absolutely a brilliant way to expand the servings of a pie and insure everyone has a chance to get some! Oh yes a tasty pie can be eaten in one evening and then mayhem might ensue. Did I already call you a genius? Buying 2 at a time! BTW, your son is a handsome guy!

    1. DelBlogger

      why thank you very much – gotta love a fellow pie connoisseur!

I love reading your comments!
