Easy Caramel Apple Galette

Have you ever had a galette? I find it best described as: a pie with a sun roof. Get this…a galette is a low-maintenance, approachable dessert. They’re basically a down-to-earth rustic version of a pie. The best part? You really can’t mess it up. The only skills needed are the ability to fold your pastry […]

Avocado Cream Pie

Move over avocado toast…your new favorite avocado dish is here and it’s not what you’d expect. Hello, Avocado Cream Pie. Or as the BF would say…what in the world is that? Yes it sounds weird.

Reese's Peanut Butter Pie Recipe - Pies Before Guys

Current status: eating leftover Reese’s Pieces for breakfast. I wish I had a nice slice of pie to go with it. But unfortunately for me, this Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie is long gone. The BF ate it in record time. So there’s a 100% chance I’ll make this again in the near future.

St. Patrick’s Day Mint Pie

As a kid I looked forward to St. Patrick’s Day solely for the McDonald’s mint shamrock shakes. I’m a fan all things mint—mojitos, thin mints, this pie… The problem was…shamrock shakes aren’t sold at every McDonald’s. So it was essentially a month long scavenger hunt. With no clues. 🤷‍♀️ But because people are lazy there’s an […]
