Lucky Leaf Pie Filling Summer Recipes

Summer is almost here and you know what that means! Well it means plenty of events to attend this summer. There will be graduations, July 4th celebrations, birthdays and of course Father’s Day!  Oh those events will be here before you know it, and what are you going to be bringing to those events? Well how about bringing a great pie, or cake? Something made with love? I would recommend something from Lucky leafs new summer recipes.

Before I tell you guys about the great recipe’s that I tried I have to share some wonderful news with you, I will be taking a trip to the LuckyLeaf Orchards in Pennsylvania. I will get to see how they make the delicious pie fillings  from start to finish. What a unique experience that will be! I will filling you all in with all of the great experiences I will have on that trip, that is for sure. Make sure to check back!  I would love to know if there are any questions you would like me to ask while I am there. Have you ever wondered how many apples are in a can of apple filling? Or how long it takes to go from the orchard to the can? I would love to hear some of your questions.
I was a busy little baker this weekend. We had a few friends over and I figured it was a great time to try out some new recipes.  I wanted to try some of the great summer recipes.

Let’s start out with my absolute favorite! The Perfectly Peach Cinnacake, this was amazingly easy to make, if you have the essentials and a boxed cake mix and a can of Lucky Leaf peaches you are good to go! My daughter helped me to make this sweet delight.  This took literally minutes to put together  and only 35 minutes to bake.

I wanted to share half of this cake with my co-workers (since this makes 12 servings I had plenty to spare) and my co-workers were delighted and jumped at the chance to try this Perfectly peach cake… And how did they like this? Well they devoured it! And one asked for the recipe right away. I was happy to share this easy recipe with her. As a working mother she just loved the ease of this cake as well. This is a cake that would work wonderfully with someone traveling to an event.

This cake is solid, and will travel well. I was able to wrap this in tin foil and carry this to work and it arrived in great condition.  So if you have to travel, and tote the cake along I would recommend the Perfectly PeachCinnacake, this will stand up to traveling and will last for a few days. Well the cake may stay fresh for a few days I am sure the cake will not be around for a few days. It is so light and delicious this will be one of the first items to go at you party I am sure of it!

 Frozen Pie Pops, what a great cool summer treat! I know it is still spring, but with the weather we have been having here in the northeast, the hot an muggy days. The frozen pie pops were here just in time. My daughter loved making these pops, and could not wait for them to freeze, while asking me every 10 minutes are they frozen yet? Well luckily (for my sanity) they did not take that long to freeze and enjoy. In about 2 hours my daughters pop was ready.
She proclaimed this as her favorite pop ever!  I have never thought of using pie filling as an ingredient to make ice pops. Well I don’t know why I didn’t ever think of it, it is a great idea. Real fruit pops? Yes, that is great. I would much rather give these pops to my daughter than the chemical filled pops they have in stores.

 Fruit Cookie Pie, this was a very simple cookie dough, whipped topping and pie filling of your choice. We went with a sugar cookie cruse with blueberry topping. Simply put the cookie dough in the pie crust, bake then mix the Lucky Leaf pie filling with the whipped topping. Easy as pie right? This was a hit with my guests as well. They loved the combination of the blueberry and the sugar cookie. There are so many ways you could make this pie, why not strawberry filling, with a peanut butter cookie. Or apple filling with chocolate chip? Whatever you want, there are so many possibilities!

Here is a tip, just because the recipe seems simple does not mean it does not taste like it took hours to make.  These simple quick recipes are great for busy mothers like me, who want to give their best but only have a short time to do it!

I don't really have a particular question you should ask, but I am interested in the processes involved in the peeling and coring and canning of the fruits.

The recipe for Peachy Pepper Chicken sounds good, almost like a sweet & sour dish.

Have you ever thought of combining flavors?

Is it hard to not want to eat everything when you work for a company hat makes such delicious food? Or if they plan on incorporating organic foods into their line.

Favorite recipe is the Blueberry Brownies. We have blueberries growing in our garden and I never thought about making brownies with them. Now I can't get it out of my head!
