Labor Day is the unofficial end of the summer season, which means that it is time to get out your favorite pie recipes and kick off pie season. Pumpkins, apples, pecans and sweet potatoes are all fall favorites that bake into fantastic pies. Since I love pie season, I am always on the lookout for new variations of my favorite pie recipes that will bring more flavor into my desserts and give me an excuse to go back for seconds. A great way to start your fall baking is by giving this free Brown Butter Maple Yam Pie recipe from Craftsy a try. The recipe is from one of the online baking classes in Craftsy’s wonderful collection, Evan Kleiman’s Perfecting the Pie Crust. The class teaches you all you need to know about making perfect crusts for any pie you can think of, walking you through the techniques you need step-by-step. The pie filling uses fresh, roasted yams – not the canned variety – and pairs them with browned butter, dark maple syrup and cinnamon for a deeply flavorful pie that just might become a new holiday favorite.
