My husband and I with our four children live in Marceline. I have an in-home daycare, while staying home with my two girls who are not school-age yet. I took on a hobby of baking. I started out doing Farmer’s Markets and taking orders here and there. My hobby grew fairly quickly into a small at-home baking business. Baking definitely keeps me busy. It’s hard to choose just one pie. But I decided to bake my CHERRY pie! My 10-year-old son used my recipe and won three awards at the Linn County 4H Fair-cherry pie Contest. I hope you enjoy it!
Coconut Pecan German Chocolate Pie
I was born and raised here in Marceline. I am a full time hairstylist in my home, but when I am not working, I love to spend time in my kitchen, cooking and baking for my husband, Steve and our son, Aiden. I was elated when asked if I could bake a pie for the Patriotic Pie War. I am sharing with you a pie that is a favorite of one of my dear hair clients, Mrs. Betty Bailey of Brookfield. My pie is a Coconut Pecan German Chocolate Pie. It has a delicious flavor and a great texture. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do and help to support our Downtown Marceline Fourth of July Fundraiser.
Blackberries are a vivid memory of my time on the farm picking and eating the pie that mom would bake. Dad would mow the brush down so we could reach the berries in HOT July! I’d wear dad’s long sleeve shirt, hat, and long pants tucked into my shoes to keep the ticks and mosquitoes at bay.
When I get a request for a blackberry pie now, reaching into the freezer at the country store takes the hardest work out of the task.
My memories are still sweet and vivid of time spent with mom, dad, grandma, and neighbors. My pie may not be the prettiest but the taste will be well worth the price.
One of my favorite childhood memories was watching my mother, Edna Clark, make homemade pie crust and pies for church events and family gatherings. A family favorite is coconut cream so that’s what I will make.
I have been baking with my mom and my grandma Sharon Siddens since I was little. Although I don’t bake a lot it is fun and I really enjoy having a good time! I will be baking an Apple 🍎 Pie 🥧
One of my fondest childhood memories was watching my Mom make pies.. she’d always make a regular size pie and then use jar lids to make tiny pies for all us kids. Although I never got to ask my Mom for her recipes; I was blessed to be surrounded by women who graciously shared their baking skills. One such woman was Mona White. For this year’s Pie War, I will be baking Mona’s Strawberry Pie.
I have lived in Marceline – my father’s home-town – for most of my life. I have made a blackberry pie from wild berries picked on my farm.
Coconut Key Lime Cream Pie
with Pecan Crust
Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was get together with family on various occasions and enjoy lots of good food. As I got older, I decided to try my hand at making different foods for my own family and found that I loved it. I am often inspired to make desserts that I see on baking shows or that I try while on vacation. Coconut Key Lime cream pie is a bit tart, a bit sweet, and very cooling, which makes it a perfect treat for a hot summer day.
I guess I’m known for my pecan pies. Back a few years ago when I was involved in an organization, we would do money makers. Having dinners, I would make a pie. Wilma Wrenn would call and ask me if I was making a pecan pie. If so, she wanted me to save a couple of slices for her and Jack. So I would always save 2 slices back for them. So I am baking this pecan pie for the Patriotic Pie Wars.
This pecan pie has an extra amount of pecans in it as we have our own pecan trees on our farm which makes it a very tasty pecan pie.
Banana Cream Pie
I am so happy to support Downtown Marceline’s 2nd annual Pie Contest! When I’m not teaching or keeping up with my husband and three kiddos, I occasionally love to bake. Luckily for any bidders, my Aunt Julie is going to give me some lessons on her perfect pie crust before the contest. Have a safe and enjoyable 4th! ❤️🤍💙
We will be baking a pie that is A staple piece at many of our family dinners. We will be baking a traditional pecan pie.
Oreo Cream Pie
We love to make messes in the kitchen! Baking with our mom and grandmas is one of our favorite things to do! We will be making an Oreo Cream Pie. It’s one of our favorites, and know you will love it, too!
