Let’s start with crust. You cannot make a delicious pie with store bought crust.
Here’s a link to my favorite recipe for theBest Basic Flaky Pie Crust. It’s the only crust recipe I 100% recommend. It’s been my favorite for over thirty years. It is, hands down, the best recipe I have found for pie crust. Ok, I’ll stop now.

Fresh Apple-Cranberry Pie
This is my signature pie. The one that is eaten up first every year.
The one everyone asks- “you’re making that pie, right?”
Baked up three of these last week. Here are some pics…

Want another look? I thought so.
That flaky crust? It’s not going to happen with stuff from the grocery freezer.

Original Toll House Pie
You haven’t had this pie? Better than a chocolate chip cookie.
‘Cause it’s baked in a homemade pie shell. Kid and adult favorite.

Key Lime Pie
Another one I make every Thanksgiving. Refreshing and a nice change from the usual pies. Make it in a Springform pan for a crust that stands up nicely around the filling.

Emeril’s Vintage Chocolate Pie
Jake requests a chocolate pie every year. This one is our favorite. The crust is made of crushed Oreos, graham crackers and the dynamic duo: butter and sugar.

Unbelievably delicious.

Another Food and Wine Magazine winner.
This pie has an incredible meringue topping that tastes like a gigantic home made marshmallow.

My SIL makes this pie every year. We love it. We hide pieces in the fridge before guests get to our house so we can have a piece after our pie party is over.
So many pies, so little time.
What’s your all time favorite pie?

  1. Si I am loving your pie round up. A few are new to me. I must try the chocolate banana cream. Have you had Dodo's banana cream cheese pie? You need to try it if you already haven't.
