Everyone loves the buttery crust of our fruit and pumpkin pies and classic cobblers that are so perfect and easy-to-make for the holiday season.

Winners and nominees at the 2006 American Music Awards all cozied up to Schwan's Executive Chef Christian "Kit" Kiefer backstage as he dished out a dazzling array of treats made with Mrs. Smith's® pies and desserts.

As the coveted awards were announced on stage before a national television audience, the backstage lounge was the place to sample delicious treats such as Chef Kit's mega-hit Dessert-tini - a perfect holiday entertaining idea.

Stars of all ages - including Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, Lionel Richie, Barry Manilow, The Dixie Chicks, and The Cheetah Girls - were delighted by the sweet treats and impressed with the trendy presentation in stem martini glasses. Assisted by culinary students from Hollywood's Kitchen Academy, Chef Kit prepared and showcased desserts throughout the day. Even dieters, he said could partake of Mrs. Smith's desserts sweetened with SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener.
