Apple Pie

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts, especially fruit desserts.  This one uses Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples, providing a firm fruit filling with a sweet-tart taste.  The type of apples you use will greatly influence the taste and texture of your pie.  I hope to experiment with a few various apples in this recipe in the future.  I suggest you buy a few apples you’d like to use and taste them before buying all you need for a pie, to make sure they are good and have the flavor you want.  After all, it is the main ingredient.

Jam Pockets (aka Homemade Pop Tarts)

These little pastry pie treats taste so much better than any store bought item from a box.  They are quite easy to make, and you can make any shape you wish.  I’ve made them a traditional rectangle, but half-moons, or rounds work too.  I highly recommend making your own pie dough for this recipe to achieve the best flavor and texture.

Pork Pies

These pies are a fun treat for children and adults alike.  Great football food, since you can eat them with your fingers.  Serve some mustard for dipping and a side of stewed cinnamon apples.  One to two pies per person is sufficient.  You can easily double this recipe to make a full dozen.

Pecan Pie

Adapted from Silver Palate Cookbook

I’ve been making pecan pies for a number of years now, but usually only for Thanksgiving.  I highly recommend making your own, so you can ensure it is full of pecans, rather than just corn syrup goo.  It’s super easy to make.  Rolling out the pie dough is the most time consuming part.
