My family loves pie, adores pie, clamors for pie. Sounds like we have an obsession, doesn’t it? It’s the dessert of choice. It’s more common for me to serve Birthday Pie around here than it is to serve Birthday Cake. Fruit Pie, Cream Pie, Pie Fresh from the Oven, Chilled Pie Ready to Serve. No matter how you slice it we do love our pie!
I’ll be baking a cherry pie this week for my teen-aged daughter, per her request. I’m so thankful I still have some fruit in the freezer from last summer. (We’ve also been able to restock our supply of jams and preserves mid-winter with fruit we had in the freezer) It tastes nearly as good as fresh after the long winter months. My personal favorite is the strawberry-rhubarb pie.
To help feed this pie addiction we have, I collected a few recipes to add to my collection and I’m sharing them here with you today. Happy Baking!

Are you are intimidated by the thought of making your own pie crust? Feel free to use the ready-to-use pie crusts available at your grocery store, but if you’d like to try rolling one out on your own, these recipes are a good place to start:

I love pie too. But I don’t make it enough for my family. I get discouraged about the ratio effort and time to create to eating it. I do a modified version of the old 4-H crust recipe, using all butter instead of lard or Crisco. I’ve subbed part coconut oil and like that too. I mix it in the food processor for speed. On the search now for a good GF crust that won’t crumble apart. Favorite pie hands-down is my mom’s concord grape pie. My mouth waters thinking of it. Second place is pretty much every other kind of pie, except for chocolate pie. I do love a good Dutch apple. My mom used to make German cherry pie for Washington’s birthday.
