Strawberry Apple Crumble Pie

Strawberry Apple Crumble Pie

I enjoy apple pies year round, but there are some fruits that I only bake with seasonally. For instance, I usually bake pies with berries during the spring and summer, when berries are in season and are at their best. When I have fresh berries in my kitchen, I also tend to look for more unusual ways to put them to good use. For this ... Read More »

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

This is a recipe that I found on a hand-typed recipe card (as in, it was typed on a typewriter) tucked inside of one of my grandmother’s cookbooks. I definitely don’t recall my grandmother ever making it, but clearly she liked it enough to take the time to type out the recipe to preserve it, instead of simply jotting down the ingredients on the back ...

Apple Butter Hand Pies

Apple Butter Hand Pies

I’m probably not the only person guilty of trying to eat a slice of regular pie by picking it up after slicing it and holding it like a slice of pizza rather than getting a plate. If you have tried this a time or two, you also know that it isn’t the neatest way to eat a piece of pie even if it does leave ... Read More »

It’s a simple tart that requires no pie crust and is shaped free-form right on your baking sheet. It also has very few ingredients, so it ... Read More »

Streamline Fruit Toppings & Fillings Apple & Cherry, reviewed

I find that homemade pie fillings are always the best fillings, but there are some good, gourmet pie fillings out there these days and I like to keep my options open by giving them a try. These gourmet pie fillings can be good when you need a filling fast, but they’re even better for dishes, like quick fruit cobblers, and ice cream sundae or oatmeal ... Read More »

Individual Cranberry Apple Pies

Individual Cranberry Apple Pie, sliced

You can’t go wrong with apple pie for any occasion and this is especially true when it comes to miniature pies. Mini pies give you the option of having a whole pie (that you can actually eat in one sitting!) all to yourself, and a stockpile of other little pies that you can either share or pop into the freezer for later. These Individual Cranberry ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Apple Pie Filling, reviewed

Apple Pie Filling

When it comes to apple pie, I firmly believe that you can’t beat a made-from-scratch pie. It’s fun to make and shape the crusts and you have total control of how sweet or tart your filling will be. The option of opening a can of prepackaged pie filling and pouring it into a frozen pie shell is not necessarily a bad one, however. I know ... Read More »
