Fruit & Berry Pies

 

Blissful Blueberry Pie
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Baking Time: 1 hour

Blissful Blueberry Pie

Blueberry pies can be unpredictable -- either runny or too much thickener.  Not this one, though!  It takes advantage of the thickening power of pectin and creates beautiful slices every time.  This recipe uses less sugar than most recipes, which is also great.

Ginger Pear Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Baking Time: 55 minutes

Ginger Pear Pie

Pears  provide a lovely, subtle and elegant flavor for pies and tarts.  Add a little ginger, however, and you've got a new fall and winter favorite!

Blackberry Ginger Pie
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Baking Time: 1 hour

Blackberry Ginger Pie

When fresh blackberries are in season, grab them!  Make yourself happy!  The ginger in this pie gives it a subtle spark that is delightful.  Best when served a tiny bit warm with vanilla ice cream.

Pineapple Pie
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Baking Time: 50-60 minutes

Pineapple Pie

Oh!  It's so different and celebrates a deserving fresh, juicy fruit.  I especially love this because it's not as sweet as many pies, nor as rich (unless you add the always-tempting swirl of whipped cream). 

Caramel Apple Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes plus baking
  • Baking Time: 1 hour

Caramel Apple Pie

When you’re looking for a special dessert, here’s one that brings together the best of the season:  apples, caramel and nuts. 

Sweet & nutty, just like the holidays!

Oh, my!  June Pie (Triple Berry)
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes plus making the pastry dough
  • Baking Time: 50-60 minutes

Oh, my! June Pie (Triple Berry)

Oh, my!  The aroma knocked my socks off.  These are the fresh berries many of us have access to during June, so I say it’s time to enjoy the bounty.  Use any combination of fresh berries you like that adds up to 5 cups.

Date & Walnut Puff Pie
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes plus defrosting time
  • Baking Time: 25 minutes

Date & Walnut Puff Pie

Dates -- rich, soft, sweet -- shine in this easy pie, teased by crunchy walnuts and cloaked in delicate puff pastry.  A touch of orange enlivens the mix.  The ingredients can come from your pantry and freezer, so this a pie to make anytime.  It's also a great pie for picnics, as a slice holds together in your hand. 

Dutch Apple Pie
  • Prep Time: 50 minutes
  • Baking Time: 45-50 minutes

Dutch Apple Pie

Nuts to apple pie!  Yes, adding nuts is just the thing sometimes.  Nuts and butter and brown sugar make this topping a little crunchy, the perfect foil to the soft apples and crisp crust.  A blue ribbon winner.

Fresh Fig Tart
  • Prep Time: 5 hours, including chillilng
  • Baking Time: 15 minutes

Fresh Fig Tart

If you love figs, you'll love this!  A slightly nutty crust, vanilla custard, the sweet burst of fresh figs, and a hint of sweet/tart chocolate bring people back for more.

It's so pretty!  It's enticing and light, perfect for summer.

Intense flavor and bright crimson color highlight this pie.  It's irresistible, really.

Becky Appleseed Apple Pie

Becky Appleseed Apple Pie

We're lucky in America:  we can get good apples almost year 'round.  October is prime time for apples, so get some and make an American dessert!  Stuffed with apples simmered in cider, oh my, this is one good pie.  Won a blue ribbon in a traditional apple pie contest in 2010.

Scarlet Raspberry Dream Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour plus pie shell. Allow 2+ hours chilling time as well.

Bewitching.  That's this pie!  Fresh, sweet red raspberries and dark chocolate buttercream are a winsome pair. The judges deemed it "Best of Show" at the NM State Fair Pie Contest 2014.

Adams Street Cherry Pie
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes (plus pitting the cherries and making the crust)
  • Baking Time: 50-60 minutes

Adams Street Cherry Pie

There's something about locally grown cherries, tart, bright red, enrobed in a sweet vanilla and almond sauce, all wrapped in a flaky crust, that just makes my mouth water. And this version won a blue ribbon in 2008!

  • Prep Time: 50 minutes
  • Baking Time: 55 minutes

Darby Blueberry Pie

Blueberry was my father's favorite pie. Darby was his name.  It's our pie of the month for June because of Father's Day.  It makes me happy when I bake it and remember him.  Here's to our Dads!
