Cherry Cranberry Pie

Cherry Cranberry Pie

Around Thanksgiving, I start to incorporate a lot of cranberries into my baking. While they’re available frozen all year long, they can be found fresh this time of year – and relatively inexpensively, as well.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

The only thing better than a freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookie is a freshly baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie. This may be called a “pie,” but I am using that term loosely because this is really a giant cookie that is baked in a pie plate. Baking the cookie in this unusual – unusual for a cookie, anyway – pan gives it a ... Read More »
