Mrs. Smith’s Deep Dish Pie + $50 Williams-Sonoma Giveaway

This post brought to you by Mrs. Smith’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mrs Smith's Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie

As you all know, I do a lot of my own baking and cooking. But, truth be told, I do buy frozen foods from time to time. [Oh my goodness!! GASP! Yes, it’s true.] Sometimes, when I compare my time to the price and quality of certain products, the frozen item sometimes makes the most sense.  Just sayin’.

This past week, I had an opportunity to try out a new line of Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish pies. I was told that they came with an icing /topping packet to create a unique customized pie…a fun twist that could put a homemade touch on them. I looked at the clock and it was pie-thirty, so I was happy to give them a try.  ;)

Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish Pies

I really wasn’t sure what to expect as it has been a long while since I bought a frozen pie. I’ve had Mrs. Smith’s pies before and remembered them being good. Years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for me to make the pumpkin pies for our Thanksgiving dinner, but all the other pie varieties, such as apple, were a Mrs. Smith’s pie.

I picked up three varieties:

-Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce

– Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce

-Signature Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing

The 4th varieties, Signature Deep Dish Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing, wasn’t available at my store unfortunately.

My favorite of the pies I bought was the Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie – although I did skip the Butter Fudge Sauce because I’m not a fan of cherries with chocolate. The kids however, thought the packets of drizzle was fun and enjoyed making restaurant-style plate art with it.

The cherry filling was just ever so slightly tart and this pie was seriously packed full of filling. Oh, and the crust was probably my favorite part. Very flaky, which is something I always strive for in my homemade pie crust. It’s actually interesting that this was my favorite pie because cherry usually isn’t a favorite of mine.

I also really enjoyed the Dutch Apple Pie. It came with a separate crumb topping and the packet of caramel sauce. The pie is baked first without these and then before it’s fully finished, you remove from the oven to add the crumb topping.

While  the Mrs Smith’s Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie tasted really good, I did have a hard time getting a pie slice to stay standing all pretty on a plate. It’s probably because there was so much filling (it is a deep dish, after all). On the plate, it seem to resemble more of an apple crisp than a pie. This didn’t affect the taste though and I thought the caramel sauce was a  good too.

I’m glad that I was able to review these pies for you. I know that while many of you do like to cook and bake, there is many of you who either don’t feel comfortable making pies, or you’re like me and sometimes wanting a treat for a special event or everyday occasion that won’t have you spending hours in the kitchen. I enjoy making pies from scratch, but I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a Mrs Smith’s Signature Pies as a nice alternative for when time (or patience) is short.

    Yowza! I am a pumkin pie kind of girl. Who wants fruit when it comes to pie-eating anyway? ;) From WS I’d get the do-it-yourself cookie cutters (http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/do-it-yourself-cookie-cutters/?pkey=e%7Ccustom%2Bcookies%7C84%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C24%7C%7C24&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-Top%20Wide%20Gift%20of%20the%20Day%20-%20copy-_-) and I won’t even tell you the dirty things my cookies would say. ;p I would also get the Star Wars cookie cutters to make cookies for my dear son, because my dirty-word cookies would not be appropriate for him. :)

    I’d like to try the Dutch Apple- the topping looks so good! From Williams-Sonoma I woul get a mini muffin pan. The perfect size for kids, and I have always wanted one! Also, pie-thirty, haha!

  14. says

    I’d go for the cherry pie. No, the apple. Ok, why must I choose? Warm out of the oven with ice cream. And if I won the gift certificate from Williams Sonoma, I’d apply it to a juicer.
