Review of Banquet Fruit Pies2:04 PM
Love pies. Hate baking.
If this is your mantra, you might be surprised to find that the line of Banquet individual fruit pies taste an awful lot like homemade. I tried a few this week, and while I won't be eating an entire one on my own (they are 300+ calories per pie), I really did enjoy eating them. One half pie with a little Redi-Whip was just what I needed to treat myself after a very stressful day.
My husband likes the Cherry Berry, full of little blueberries and cherry filling. I am partial to the peach! You might enjoy the apple. All flavors start out frozen, and after about 3-4 minutes in the microwave, come out steaming hot and with a golden brown crust -- just like you baked them (but without the wait or the energy use from a running oven.) At less than a buck a pie in most market, these little one-serving desserts are nice to have on hand. They are perfect for when not everyone can agree on a pie!
