Bavarian Cream Pie

Today is National Bavarian Cream Pie Day and this is a nice simple recipe that goes way back according to my mom’s recipe box. My dad was a big fan of any kind of cream pies  (especially Boston Cream Pie) and cakes and was the skinniest man when he was young and with my mom’s home cooking it’s hard to believe he could stay so trim! Of course he was a hard working man and probably burned those calories off with ease.

One of dad’s favorites!

Bavarian Cream Pie
  • Crust:
  • 16 graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 teas cinnamon
  • ⅓ sugar
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • Filling:
  • 1 pkg unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ teas salt
  • 1 cup milk, scalded
  • 1 teas vanilla extract
  • ½ pint heavy cream, whipped
  1. Combine all the crust ingredients together and press into a 9-inch pie plate, reserving a few crumbs for the top.
  2. For the filling, soften gelatin in the water and set aside.
  3. Cook slightly beaten eggs yolks, sugar, salt and milk in a double boiler until mixture coats a spoon.
  4. Mix in the gelatin mixture and remove from heat; let cool until slightly thickened.
  5. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into the gelatin mixture along with the vanilla and whipped cream.

Whiskey Soused Chicken

I thought I’d give the turkey a break today and go to a tasty chicken dish. After an overload of my favorite bird, I’m even giving husband a break tonight and make a ham steak, just so he doesn’t have to eat turkey 3 days in a row, which is no problem for me! This is a very simple dish loaded with a lot of flavor that is sure to please. Don’t worry about the alcohol as some of you might not know, it evaporates when cooked down, it’s only used to enhance the flavor of the dish you may be making. Of course, there is always whiskey in our house so making this dish is easy!

Whiskey Soused Chicken
  • 4 lbs chicken pieces, I use all chicken breasts
  • 2 teas salt
  • ½ teas white pepper
  • 1 teas basil
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup whiskey, I use Black Velvet
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 2 cups chopped, fresh tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups cream
  1. Season chicken pieces with the salt and pepper; melt butter in a skillet and brown chicken on all sides.
  2. Add the whiskey and cook over high heat for 2 minutes; add the veggies and cream.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and continue cooking over low heat for ½ hour or until chicken is tender and no longer pink inside.
  4. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles.


Hope you enjoy!
