I realized the other day that I can successfully make a fair amount of pies. This made me feel very... American. :) I've decided to post them here because they are all online and if you have a good pie recipe ...you should share the love.
Best-Ever Apple Pie: This is from my favorite cookbook author. I have two of her cookbooks and all my recipes are from her. I made this pie for Christmas because you can prepare it and freeze it uncooked for up to a month. So I made it ahead of time. It was delicious. See pics above. I have an angel cookie cutter, by the way.
German Chocolate Pie: I wasn't expecting to like a chocolate pie, but alas I did. Yum.
Fresh Blueberry Pie: I saw this recipe on likemotherlikedaughter.org and it's unique because it uses a combination of cooked and freshed blueberries.
Mud Pie: This is actually icecream. But perhaps my favorite dessert of all time.
Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie: I make this for Thanksgiving. Since we don't have canned pumpkin puree, I boil some actual pumpkin and blend it with a handheld blender. I don't usually like pumpkin pies, but this one is excellent.
