Okay, you got me with this one. Next time we pick apples, I'm giving it a try. Thanks!


Pie without ice cream?

Wait, I've got to take in the full impact of that statement.

Nope. Does not compute. Apple and cranberry pie, surely it must require ice cream. And the really good fattening stuff...


Mmm, pie...

I saw this today - while not an apple pie, it still looks delicious!



Are you trying to fatten us up?


OK - I've been lurking for a while, but if you're going to talk about pies, you're now in my field of study. Here's a good recipe:
Dutch Apple Pie
Put an unbaked crust in the pan. Mix 3/4 c sugar, 3T flour, and 1 t lemon juice with enough apples to fill the crust (peeled and thinly sliced - don't use macs or delicious - I like an assortment of fairly tart varieties). Mix up this topping: 1/4 c sugar, 1/2 c flour, 1/4 c butter (melted), 1/2 c shredded coconut, and a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Bake the pie at 375 degrees for about 45-60 minutes until lightly browned and bubbling. You can also omit the coconut (but it's not quite as good).

My favorite pie (lately) is a cross between banana cream pie and that old recipe for banana pudding with vanilla wafers - let me know if you'd like that recipe.

Apple Pies
Well I can now count on getting nothing done today, because ,
we talking pies!
When I was younger and baking Pies and cakes blah blah blah.......
and some of the tricks I learned were
1) always make lots-o- dough two or three pies are as easy as one.

2) Do some combo's.Two crust pies,crumble topping, and if there are kids around give'em some dough and start 'em young.

3) Also I pre-cook the apples in a sauce pan and at the end (when the apples have just stated to sofen) I add the sugar, flour, spices ect. Pour hot mixture in pie shell.

4) Apple pie goes with so many kinds of friuts, or you could do
version with nuts and sweeten with maple syrup.

5) You DO need ice ceam with pie. Or a nice cheese tray(with a sharp old chedder.)

I really do need to get some laundry done.

more later.


Thanks for sharing! I like anything with fresh cranberries in it & do so love pie!


When I make cranberry apple pie, I normally just dust the cranberries with a little sugar, and toss them in the apple pie. Yum. I think the recipe is around here somewhere since I collect cranberry recipes. Cortland's are best. But, normally for Thanksgiving, I make plain cranberry pie. Double your cranberry filling recipe, and you'll about have it, except I use a lower heat in the oven. More like 350. Serve with vanilla ice cream and all is well.

I'm also of the multiple pie theory, it's as easy to make 2 pies as one. And cheddar with apple pie. yum!
