All Pies

 

Blueberry Lemon Tart
  • Prep Time: 35 minutes plus chilling (1 hour)
  • Baking Time: 50-60 minutes

Blueberry Lemon Tart

Combine two favorites -- blueberries and lemons -- and what do you get?  A new favorite!  The blueberries are nestled in a sweet-tart lemon custard, all enthroned on a buttery crust.  

Red Hot Apple Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour plus time for apples to cool
  • Baking Time: 50-60 minutes

Red Hot Apple Pie

In a charming twist, this recipe brings a pretty red flare to your apple pie and the red hots add a subtle crispness.  The result is stunning!  

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!

Buttermilk Pie
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes plus crust
  • Baking Time: 45 minutes

Buttermilk Pie

It screams for berries!  It's the perfct palate -- delicate, with a hint of lemon -- for fresh berries, whether raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or some other favorite.  Made with ingredients on hand, you can bring home the berries, put the pie together, and enjoy it within a couple of hours.  It doesn't even have to cool completely, like most pies.  It's easy, breezy and delicious. 

Lammas Mama's Lemon Meringue Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour minutes (plus crust)
  • Baking Time: 1 minute under broiler

Lammas Mama's Lemon Meringue Pie

Clouds of meringue float above perky, fresh lemon pudding nestled in a light crust with crunch.  So many good things in one place!  "Lammas" refers to the midway point between summer solstice and the fall equinox, which is when this recipe was created.  And "Mama's" comes from the fact that the luscious Meyer's lemons used came from my Mom's tree! 

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.

Banana Cream Pie
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes plus chilling & crust
  • Baking Time: 15 minutes for crust

Banana Cream Pie

Who doesn't have ripe bananas around every now and then?  This is a perfect way to use them:  nestled in a crisp crust and crowned with an elegant (but easy!) vanilla pudding.  Oh, my gosh!  So good

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. 

Pear and Almond Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour
  • Baking Time: 1 hour

Pear and Almond Pie

Pears are an underrated dessert fruit, according to a local pastry chef.  Here they dance in combination with a perfect partner:  almonds. 

Chocolate and Pecan Pie
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Baking Time: 10 for crust, 40 minutes for pie

Chocolate and Pecan Pie

Easy!   There's something about the crunch and flavor of the pecans that I just love. 

Eggnog Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 1/4 hours plus time for chilling between steps & before serving
  • Baking Time: 12-15 minutes for crust

Friendly Eggnog Pie

Creamy decadence.  Really, what else do you need to know?  Oh, the crust is a perfect complement to the filling, being the tiniest bit nutty.  Real rum makes it a special occasion treat.

Pear Frangipane Tart
  • Prep Time: 1 hour, including pears poached a day ahead
  • Baking Time: 1 hour (15 minutes for shell, 45 for filling)

Pear Frangipane Tart

There's something seductive about pears and almnds together, like they were born to love each other.  This tart will arouse applause from those lucky enough to be served a slice!

Maple Cream Pie
  • Prep Time: 1 hour plus chilling
  • Baking Time: 10-12 minutes for crust

Maple Cream Pie

It's the perfect pie for the Fall season:  a sense of warmth from pure maple syrup and the comfort of cream.  Consider it for an afternoon get-together with hot coffee.

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.
