Mrs Smith’s Deep Dish Pies + $50 William-Sonoma Giveaway

mrs smiths signature deep dish pies

Along with the holiday cheer, family memories and joy of giving….there is also another wonderful part of this season: The Food! While your table may be filled with all kinds of delicious dishes, you can bet all eyes will be on the dessert table when you serve Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish Pies.

I admit, I don’t normally buy frozen pies. Sometimes I make my own, but most often I purchase them from our local small bakery. But, I enjoy trying new foods so I happily agreed to try these Signature pies out and see what my family thought. The first Signature Deep Dish pie that I prepared was the Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce.

Normally I’m not the biggest fan of cherry pie. But, I have to admit that this one surprised me. Okay, okay… I ate half of it myself. I realized that it wasn’t cherry pie that I didn’t care for, it was generic, cheap cherry pie. I was use to super sweet, fake filling that had maybe a cherry or two in the whole slice. They were more like jelly doughnuts than real pie. Mrs Smith’s Deep Dish Cherry was fantastic. The pie is brimming over with whole, juicy cherries and the crust was buttery and flaky (none of that waxy crust you often end up with). I did find that I preferred it without the fudge sauce (though my 15 year old would disagree strongly).

Next was Mrs Smith’s Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce. Let me just say this and get it out of the way: I made a total pig of myself with this pie — it’s just that good. My husband took one bite and said, “I want more of these.” It was definitely a hit with my kids as well. It was extremely easy to prepare with only three steps:  pre-bake pie, add streusel and bake again. The pie cooked evenly and presented beautifully….until it was time to serve. I like my pie warm so, after letting it sit for about an hour, I sliced it. As you can see above, it didn’t hold together very well. But that’s okay! We ended up with a very tasty apple crumble instead. Delicious!

Unfortunately I was never able to get my hands on the Deep Dish Pumpkin or the Deep Dish Peach. They were either not available or sold out at my local stores. It’s really a shame – Pumpkin is my favorite! I’m not going to give up the search though. One day I’ll chow down on both!

I was also pleased with the price – between $6 – $7 depending on where I shopped. A good value compared to $5 for the flat, fake-tasting pies in our grocery store bakery.
