Cindy’s Mom’s Apple Pie

by on April 3, 2014 · 2 comments


I baked a lot of apple pies last week and concluded that it’s hard to make a bad one. My favorite had a butter-free filling, lemon juice, a mixture of Granny Smith and Macintosh apples and a buttery crust with a lattice top.  I didn’t even think about pies with crumb toppings until Cindy sent […]

Apple Pie

Last week I went on a crazy apple pie baking spree under the guise of finding the perfect one. The real reason was probably due to stress and a need for baking therapy; but in any event, the experience resulted in a new appreciation of apple pie and knowing what I liked and did …

Blackberry Cobbler With Butter Pastry

Blackberry Lattice

What started out as a way to practice making lattices turned into a recipe worth repeating!  This cross between a pie and a cobbler really showcases what is now my favorite all-butter pie crust recipe for fruit pies. I’m not sure whether to call this a cobbler or a bottomless pie. It’s baked in a […]

Slice of Apple Pie

Fuzz volunteered my pie making services for a school function next week, and together we have decided on apple…a really, really, good apple. Years ago I said this was the best apple pie ever — as if I’d tasted all the apple pies in the world. I am trying to tone down my use of […]

Chocolate Irish Cream Pie

Thanks to Pinterest, picking a St. Patrick’s Day dessert is completely overwhelming! It used to be you could Google up something cute, tasty and green and then head to the kitchen. Now there are about a gazillion different variations on Irish Cream, green colored thingies, MINT, Guinness, etc. etc. etc. I finally got tired of […]

Miniature Coconut Cream Pies

Miniature Coconut Cream Pie

I love making pie, but it takes our small family a long time to eat it so I usually end up freezing the slices individually. That method works fine, but I got tired of looking at all the frozen pie slices and decided to try something new — halving a pie recipe and assembling it […]

Quick Coconut Cream and Pineapple Pie

Coconut Cream and Pineapple Pie

A few months ago I found some Eagle Brand in the pantry and decided to try their quick butterscotch cream pie recipe. Because it was an easy “convenience” pie, I figured it would be good, but not great. Well, it totally exceeded my expectations and I made a mental note to try a coconut variation. […]

Pineapple Cream of Coconut Pie

Coconut Pineapple Pie

If you need a little slice of summer right now, this pie is for you! It’s a cross between a cheesecake and a cream pie that tastes a lot like Millionaire Pie or perhaps the dessert my grandmother used to make called Banana Split Cake but without the bananas. The base is a graham cracker […]
