Boiled Cider Apple Pie

Using boiled cider in this recipe brings apple pie to a whole new level. The boiled cider adds a depth of apple flavor that is big and bold.

Apple Cranberry Pie

Heritage cookbooks can often yield great surprises as well as simple but outstanding recipes.  This recipe comes from an old Mennonite cookbook and is a great example. Pairing two tart fruits together with just the right amount of sugar makes for a delightful and flavorful pie. The addition of cranberries brings a holiday spirit to apple pie.

Libby’s Pumpkin Pie

A no-miss standby. The recipe for this pumpkin pie is from the back of Libby’s pumpkin can. I am always amazed at how people comment on this pie as though there is some magic or secret in the recipe, it’s that good. So grab yourself a can of Libby’s pumpkin and enjoy.

Pumpkin Praline

Your taste buds will delightfully tingle when eating this pie as spices are amped up on this recipe.  Using three eggs instead of two, which is what is normally called for in pumpkin pie recipes, creates a delicious silky smooth custard filling.

Butternut Squash Pie

Melissa Clark, food writer, cookbook author and staff writer  for the New York Times, describes this as the ultimate pumpkin pie. So who am I to argue. It does have cred as a very good pie, While it does take a bit more time and additional steps from the pumpkin purees out-of-the-can recipes, it is well worth the effort. Spiced very nicely with extra ginger and made with heavy cream, it is a tasty option for pumpkin pie enthusiasts.

Pecan Pie

A simple recipe with a rich, gooey filling filled with crunchy pecans. A great back-of-the-bottle recipe that that creates a classic finish to you holiday meal.

Apple Blackberry Pie

An apple pie with a jammy apple/blackberry filling that also has a festive holiday look. A great riff on apple pie for that special holiday event.
