Well, I finally got a chance to see the movie Waitress. I did enjoy the movie, it was different and the ending was not as expected, which I like when that happens. BUT, for those who saw it, didn't you just think the pies made in the movie looked WONDERFUL? Well, I did. I particularly was interested in the Marshmallow Mermaid Pie. After some internet searching I was able to find the following recipes and was wondering if anyone else had tried them and how they turned out.
If you haven't seen the movie, it might be worth a trip to the video store, but even if you don't see the movie, you can still make the pie!

How much cornstarch in that Baby Screamin' pie? Is there a more common cheese that could be substituted for the brie in the I Don't Want Earl's Baby pie?
These all look yummy. Thank you for posting them.
I would think any really soft cheese could replace brie. I would try cream cheese...probably one brick of it. I don't care for brie and I think cream cheese would be delicious in this. I haven't seen the movie but I'm saving these recipes to try later.
I have a very difficult time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger.
Hi! I don't normally post over here but I saw your post about the pies from the movie. I tried the chocolate mousse "Falling in Love" pie. It was delicious!
Mathmomma, I have never made these so I can't help you with the cheese question. As for the cornstarch, I can't help you there either, that's copied from the website I found it on (http://www.articleplanets.com/articles/207/1/039Waitress039-Bakes-Up-Pie-To-Die-For/Page1.html), but I would "think" it would be 1/8 tsp., but my "thinker" could be wrong. Sorry.
Shannon, if you try them, let me know how they turn out. I think I might try the marshmallow one soon and when I do I'll post a review.
Jangrif, thanks for letting me know. Actually, the Falling in Love pie was my second choice. I'll make sure I try it now.
Anyone else try any?
Have a great day!
Marshmallow Mermaid Pie9 graham crackers1/2 C. sweetened, flaked coconut, toasted5 Tbs. butter or margarine, melted34 lg. marshmallows (8 oz.)1/2 C. whole milk1 1/2 C. heavy or whipping cream1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, grated
For all intents and purposes that's nothing more than cool whip and marshmallow fluff mixed with coconut. Now I'll eat just about anything with coconut but that pie would give my dentures cavities lol.
I recently saw this movie and liked it. I was telling a friend about it. She told me she had heard on the news that the "Waitress" was killed by her stalker husband. Does anyone know if this was true?
Hi I saw the movie and it was good and the ending was not what i expected either. I understand the writer of the movie who also was one of the waitresses, I think the one that got all prettied up for the date, was in real life murdered but not sure if it was a stalker but it was so sad to see the movie and see her in it.

I loved this movie so much I had to put the recipes on our site. I got a hold of most of them:
Waitress Pie recipes
Thanks for sharing yours too!
Hi Karen! I have been trying to find the recipe to the pie the main character and the Dr bake together. The one with the dark chocolate and blackberries on top?Do you know the recipe to that one? So glad someone out there took an interest to the pies too!
All the best,
That pie was called "Lonely Chicago Pie", and I found a couple of recipes by doing a Google search:

Allow to chill in fridge before serving.
I haven't tried it, so I don't know how it is, but if you try it, let me know, okay?
I also found this website, with a variation:
I would like to know a whole bunch of recipes from the movie, lol - most of which we don't even have names for (as far as I can remember), such as the key lime (I assume) in the beginning, pretty much all of the pies in the beginning sequence (all those pretty colored custard-ish pies) ... I would really like to know a recipe for the chocolate and mashed banana pie she makes - I don't remember if it had a name or not.
Hi-The writer/director and also actress (that played Dawn, the shy waitress) was murdered by a 19 yr old construction worker, who happened to be an illegal immigrant. She used an apartment in Greenwich Village as an office and he was working in the building. He strangled her after she caught him trying to steal out of her wallet. He then tried to make it look like she hung herself. He was convicted and is in jail.
She lived with her husband, a very nice man, and their young child, in my sister's small apartment building in Tribeca.The script is fiction. You can read more details on her wiki page:
