Malted Ice Cream Pie with Waffle Cone Crust recipe

Bite-size or family-size, savory or sweet, the humble pie is the current darling of the culinary world. That’s right cupcake, step aside. This all-American favorite is reclaiming its glory and growing in popularity.

A classic comfort food, pie is one of the most versatile dishes around, making it easy to enjoy morning, noon or night. From pot pies and breakfast pies, to whoopie pies and ice cream pies, there’s a pie to please every palate.

Here are a few tips to transform the everyday pie:

  • Go Guilt-Free. No longer just an indulgent treat, pies can be made more nutritious with simple better-for-you swaps. For a boost of fiber, substitute regular pie crust with a whole-grain crust.
  • No time for homemade? No problem. Many supermarkets offer pre-made whole-grain pie crusts, which can be a big time-saver in the kitchen. And for recipes that call for 2% milk, try using fat free evaporated milk instead. You’ll enjoy the rich, creamy flavor you crave, plus two times the calcium and protein.
