I love the holidays for many reasons but especially because of the pie. And anyone who knows me knows that I have had a relationship with pecan pie my entire life. The sad truth, is that I basically only eat it if I am a dinner party because when it is just my hubby and I at home, a whole pie just seems too big for us to finish. Well, not anymore. Ever since I got my hands on Corningware Meal Mugs, my prayers have basically been answered. I have been using these mugs to create small single serving dishes and yes, one of those dishes is pecan pie in a mug.

Corningware Meal Mugs are not your ordinary mugs. Firstly, the are supersized at 20 ounces. Secondly, they are made of a durable stoneware material which is dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave & pre-heated oven safe (meaning, do not put it in when the oven is cold, but only put it in once the oven is pre-heated to allow for even cooking and prevents damage if it heats up unevenly). Seriously, have you ever heard of a mug that you can put in the oven?
Plus, these mugs come with their own vented BPA-free lids which is perfect when storing the pie to eat later. You can quickly snap on the lid while allowing steam to escape and store the mug the fridge for later. And if you want to reheat your pie in the microwave, keep the lid to keep your microwave clean. Just don't put the lid in the oven!
My favourite way to eat pecan pie in a mug is to serve it hot with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon. Give me a spoon and let me dig away!Print
