Did you know you could make a Holiday Pie in the Microwave? try my Pumpkin, Apple, & Pecan Pies made in minutes

Hi Bold Bakers!

Fall is upon us and I’m delighted because it is my favorite time of year. It’s mainly because of the holidays, I’m not gonna lie. In my opinion the greatest ingredients are available for us to cook and bake with in the Autumn months including cinnamon, cranberries, and apples to name a few.

That why the next installment in my mug cake series had to be Microwave Mug Pies!!! Yes, Pies made in the microwave. You don’t need to make a huge fuss, you only need a small amount of ingredients and you will be eating pies in no time! I wanted to show you my recipes for traditional American Holiday pies which are Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie and Apple Crisp.

Now I know what you are thinking, how did she cook crust in the microwave? Does it have the same smooth texture as a baked pumpkin pie? Yes, they are bite for bite the same as a baked pie, the only difference is you get to enjoy them in less time and and there’s little washing up! It’s hard to argue with that.

There is a feeling of comfort around this time of year, probably because of the crisp weather and shorter days. We spend a lot more time hibernating than the rest of the year which is fine by me. These pies are full of fall flavors which to me are rich, hearty and warming. Holiday baking is traditional for me being from Ireland. I baked with my mum last year and we made Apple Crumble (aka Crisp). I love those times, however when my sweet tooth takes over and I want Apple Crisp NOW, well that’s the beauty of these Microwave Mug Pies.

Every country has their own traditions around Halloween and Christmas, however I never celebrated a Thanksgiving until I moved to the U.S. in 2008. I love Thanksgiving because it’s like a warm up to Christmas. You get to have Turkey, stuffing, pies–the works all before Christmas day. Pumpkin pie was a first for me, and I’m not going to lie, it took some convincing to try it but once I did I knew why it was such a fan favorite for Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin Pie has lovely warm flavors that all balance well together. It is smooth in texture and a lovely combination of sweet and creamy. And now it’s even easier to make.

I see what it is now. On the website you have the nutrition info for the pumpkin pie one listed for each of the flavors. The pecan and apple ones are higher calories. I printed out the Mug Apple Recipe and the printed version says it is 747 calories but online it has 307 (because that’s the i fo for the pumpkin one.)

Something is off on the calories and/or servings of these recipes. The calories for the apple pie says 307 but the first ingredient is 3 tbsp of butter which is 300 cals. This does not include any of the oats, fruit, etc. Perhaps this recipe makes 2 servings?

Can you make the pecan pie mug with more crushed crackers for those of us that like more crust ? Or would that cause the cooking time to change or need to use a bigger mug? This sounds delicious, looking forward to making it.

Do we have to make the pecan pie filling 24 hours ahead of time?
