Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. That means lots of yummy food and some yummy desserts too and maybe if you are lucky some leftover pie. Or make an extra pie just so you can be sure you have some to make this Razzleberry Pecan Sea Salted Caramel PIE MILKSHAKE. I know, the title is a little bit of a mouthful but that’s because you are going to want your mouth full of this, I promise!
Now that I live so far away from my family, I crave things and traditions that remind my little family here and me of them and help us all feel closer, despite our distance. My favorite pie is Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies in razzleberry flavor. The reason for this is that my step mom loves rubarb pie. I know, not razzleberry but at one point I confused the two and thought it was the same thing. It’s not and I don’t even know if she likes razzleberry but trying it in that moment of confusion started my love of the flavor and now every time I have it, no matter the time of year, I think of her and the rest of my family like crazy. Top it with some ice cream and Reddi-Wip® and it is the perfect (EASY) pie. I also like that a lot of people don’t really seem to be familiar with the flavor (raspberries and marionberries) so it’s something unique and fun to break up traditional pies of the season, like pumpkin that I’ve never been a huge fan of, and it’s good conversation starter.
This year, we aren’t hosting for Thanksgiving which is kind of nice. But it’s the time of year I get really homesick. While I was waiting on a prescription at Walmart, I was wandering the aisles, seeing all the fun holiday decorations and my mind drifted to my family far away and I decided to do something fun for my kids (and myself) to bring a little comfort of home. I knew just the treat for a little fix of homesickness. I picked up a Razzleberry pie and some Reddi-Wip.
Later, while my kids were napping, I tossed the pie in the oven to prepare it in a flash. I let it cool overnight so we could enjoy it the next day while having some family time; looking at pictures of our spread out family, talking about what they all like to do, about where they live and finding them all on our USA puzzle map. Not that pie alone is a bad thing but I have been wanting to mix things up and try something a little crazy.
My favorite way to have pie is slightly warm with some ice cream on top so it melts slightly. I played off that idea and made a pie milkshake. This thing is very decadent and so delicious. Plus really easy.
Scoop your ice cream into your blender. Put in a full slice of the baked pie right in the blender.
Blend it very briefly to make sure there are still little crumbles of the pie crust. It adds a great texture.
Pour it into a glass. Top it off with some Reddi-Wip®, pecans, caramel and stick in a straw. That’s it, ready to take your mouth to flavor city! It’s so pretty, almost too pretty to eat but only almost.
It would be delicious with any flavor of pie but again I’m partial to the razzleberry – yum! Cross your fingers that your grandma sends you home with an extra slice tomorrow so you can try it yourself or better yet head out and pick up a pie and invite a friend over for a unique treat and enjoy each other’s company while you #sharethejoyofpie. If you’ve never tried razzleberry, it is so tasty and I don’t even like raspberries. Be sure to check out all these yummy recipe ideas on what you can do with pie. I’d love to hear what fun and unique recipes you’d like to try with pie!
