Ellery's Mystery Pie-Themed Cozy Contest

Hosted By Ellery Adams

It's the first of the month! Usually, I offer up a $10 gift card to the person who identifies the correct mystery cozy title and author, but this month, in honor of the release of Lemon Pies and Little White Lies, I have a bigger prize to give away! 

This month, the prize is related to the Charmed Pie Shoppe. Pie tastes lovely with a cup of tea or coffee, so how about drinking yours from this adorable cup and book-shaped saucer? And to decorate your favorite books? These butterfly book plates. Butterflies are Ella Mae's totem creatures and I don't know about you, but I love anything that reminds me of spring.

How to enter? Easy as pie! Name a pie that I haven't used yet in a Charmed Pie Shoppe mystery that you'd like to see in a future book. Then, I'll draw a random name from the correct guesses and post that person's name on this page and on Facebook by 10 p.m. on April 2nd. And don't forget to preorder Lemon Pies and Little White Lies. Preorders keep your favorite authors in business! 


Ellery's helpful hint - The pies can be sweet or savory. Good luck!

Marionberry Pie. Probably not fair as Marionberries were developed in Marion County, OR by Oregon State Univ and may not be found outside the NW. They are blackberries without all the seeds.

By the way Ellery. You always say you'll post the winner here as well as on Facebook, but I never see it here and I'm not on FB. Thanks. cordellajo126@gmail.com

Vinegar Pie. From my understanding, it tastes much better than it sounds and has been around since the 1900's. Thank you for the chance to win this adorable cup and saucer! lisaksbookreview(at)aol(dot)com

II do tend to post directly to the winner via Facebook as I often have no way to reach my winners here, so thank you so much for leaving an email. Good thinking!

Banoffee Pie, it's a recipe I found about 5 years ago in a cookbook I received for my birthday. It's a wonderful mixture of rich toffee and ripe bananas. I like to put shaved chocolate on top.

Exploding Carmel Banana Pie. Let me explain...a can of condensed milk, in an unopened can, is boiled in water covering the can, for a couple of hours. I forgot the boiling can one day, the water ran dry for a period of time, and the can exploded!!! Thus... Exploding Banana Pie!!!!!! If you pay attention and don't forget the can, it is delicious!!!

Mississippi Mud Pie. Yes it's a real pie. No not made from mud , but totally delish.

Andrea Stoeckel said...

I got one for you: potato kugel. I saw this version on Tori Avery's Passover recipes. Make a kugel in a piepan and cut like a quiche. Another is apple cheese pie: yes, add the cheese to the pie
