What are the best apples for baking apple pie?

When it comes to apple pie fillings, some apples perform better than others. I always look for apples that are crisp, sweet-tart and juicy.

Apple Pie Cupcakes

Apple Pie Cupcakes

A slice of warm apple pie is hard to resist, so it’s no surprise that they are one of my top comfort foods. Apple pies do have a few drawbacks, however. They need to be served with a plate and fork, and they’re not always easy to slice up for a big crowd. Since I do a lot of entertaining in the fall, I tend ... Read More »

Apple Cider Pie

Apple Cider Pie

It’s no secret that I love apple pie and I’ve made all kinds over the years, from double crust pies to streusel-topped pies to crustless pies. This Apple Cider Pie is a new favorite, but unlike some of the other apple pies I’ve made, this one doesn’t contain a single piece of apple. Instead of starting with chopped up apples, this pie starts with apple ... Read More »

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 »

Apple Slab Tart

Apple Slab Tart

This Apple Slab Tart is a great dessert for anyone that likes traditional tarts but that finds making them – tucking the crust into a tart pan, blind baking, etc – to be a bit of a fussy process. 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 »
