Oreo Chocolate Mousse Tartlets

Baker Bettie Custards/Puddings/Mousses, Pie, Sweets 1 Comment

Rich chocolate mousse tartlets with oreo crust, real whipped cream, and more crushed oreos on top! This chocolate mousse is incredibly easy to make and so fluffy and silky smooth!  Sometimes I sit down to write a post and get complete writers block. That sometimes is now. I pretty much just want to say: “Oreo cookie crust + chocolate mousse filling + cookies and cream topping = total yum. Enough said.” I mean really. Is there much more to say? Do I need to convince you that this will be good? I really don’t think so. When I made that …

Baker Bettie Pie, Summer, Sweets 11 Comments

This easy key lime pie recipe only calls for 3 ingredients for the filling and 2 ingredients for the crust! So simple and the filling requires no baking! Mr. BB and I just got back from a week long trip along the East Coast. Our last stop during the trip was in Florida to visit his parents. I knew I had to have at least one piece of Key Lime Pie while I was there. It is one of my all time favorite desserts, but one of those that I often forget about. It just isn’t something you often see …

Baker Bettie Cheesecake, Pie, Sweets 3 Comments

Easy no-bake cheesecake recipe that is incredibly light and airy and so much easier to make than traditional cheesecake. Heavy whipping cream is whipped into cream cheese to create a silky smooth and light filling. A few days ago it happened again. It had been a few month, so I knew it was coming soon.

Chocolate French Silk Pie

Baker Bettie Fall, Holidays, Pie, Sweets 78 Comments

Rich and decadent chocolate french silk pie recipe. This pie filling requires no baking and is a rich silky chocolate filling with whipped cream topping and chocolate shavings.  I fully admit that I have avoidance issues when it comes to pie. I rarely make them. And it has nothing to do with disliking pie. Pie is probably one of my favorite desserts. But I don’t particularly like making them. I have realized that the only reason I don’t like making them is because I’m not confident in my crust technique. Why is it so hard to make the edges look …

S’mores Brownie Pie

Baker Bettie Brownies, Pie, Skillets, Sweets 8 Comments

S’mores brownie pie is a brownie and graham cracker layer on bottom and a toasted marshmallow topping.   I can’t hear the mention of s’mores without immediately thinking of The Sandlot and this scene. So nostalgic. I can’t tell you how many times I watched that movie as a kid. Sometimes more than once in a day. And even though we didn’t have s’mores often as children, for some reason they just feel nostalgic too. Toasted marshmallow tastes like childhood to me. I was asked recently what my favorite kitchen tool is. That is a difficult question. My initial reaction is …

Free-Form Bourbon Soaked Cherry Pie

Baker Bettie Pie, Summer, Sweets 12 Comments

Life is confusing at the moment. Life is more than confusing at the moment. It is stressful, and scary, and devastating, and filled with emotions I can’t even put into words. And I know that it is just life. These moments come and  these moments go and this won’t be the last time. I know that for certain. And it’s moments like these where it’s easy to question myself. But it’s also times like these where strength I didn’t know I had is summoned. And that is what I’m trying to focus on. I am stronger than I know. I can deal …
