Just dessert

No, this isn't a revenge post. Or maybe it is. My revenge against my bad baking luck. Take THAT!

I have to share my two baking successes. First, I made some delicious cookies for the McHusband to take to the beach with him. Am I a wonderful McWife or what? Sure, they were those refrigerated break-and-bake cookies, but that doesn't mean I didn't make them with love.

Not with a ton of effort, I'll admit, but I did put some love into them.

Once I was done slaving away over those cookies, I made this pie.

It's called Tar Heel Pie. I'm thinking that whoever submitted this pie to Allrecipes either isn't a good speller or isn't from 'round these parts because everyone knows tarheel is one word. Right?

My mom and I sampled the pie tonight and it was VERY good. I used a premade graham cracker crust instead of the pie crust and I thought it turned out really well. Mom?

The pie was very rich. Good thing we had vanilla ice cream and Cool Whip to tone it down.

Pioneer Woman would be most proud! Tar Heel or Tarheel -- the fourth piece was as yummy as the first! (Yup, it's gone - as are the spice drops. I'm fairly confident that I've gotten the sugar urges out of my system!)
