My Texas Table Newsletter - No Bake Treats for Summer!

Happy Monday friends!!!  

I normally post my newsletter on Sundays, but we made a quick trip out -of -town, so I was short on time. Hopefully everyone had a wonderful weekend? I know I did!!!! When the Texas temps reach scorching levels, there's nothing more refreshing than a cool and creamy dessert, ice box cake  or no bake treat. If there's one thing I've learned about summer in the south it's best to use the oven as little as possible. Unfortunately, our sweet -tooth knows no season and to keep you from without dessert today I'm sharing some delicious no-bake desserts and treats. From ice box cakes, no-bake cookies, refreshing pies and frozen treats the following recipes will help you beat the summer heat all season long. I hope y'all will find something you like.

How to make a DIY Pie Guard
My pie crusts always turn out perfect thanks to a little trick I learned from my Ma maw Eaves. Ma Maw showed me how to turn a disposable pie plate into a simple and affordable pie guard. She showed me this little trick about 20 years ago and since then I have never had burnt pie crust edges. The next time you have a disposable pie pan save it and cut out the center (so the middle of the pie still cooks and browns). Just invert the pie pan over your pie crust for a perfectly baked edges every time.  

It's gardening season and my vegetable garden is overflowing with pickling cucumbers! Check out my latest post on the blog and learn how to make these deliciously easy Dill Pickles!  Click here to get the full recipe
