What is it about a freshly made homemade pie? Well, for me it is the smell in the kitchen as you are baking the pie and knowing you made it with own two hands.
Every pie is different, therefore in making a good pie one must start with the best pie dough. It makes all the difference in the world as far as taste. Nothing worse than having a dry dough. My homemade pies have been a favorite at most every Holiday occasion. Of course the best pies I can recall are the ones you make for just an ordinary after dinner dessert.
This chocolate pie filling is wonderful all on its own or in a pie crust. Homemade pie pastry makes this pie special. So tasty, you will think it is from a fancy bakery shop.
Growing Rhubarb is great for making all kinds of treats. I make a Rhubarb pie almost every year at Fourth of July time. Most of the time I add strawberries with the Rhubarb but having just the fresh Rhubarb in a pie is equally good. So many yummy treats to make with this sweet fruit.
Oh my gosh I had so much fun making this video with my sister. We made a Pecan, Pumpkin, Apple Pie and Cinnamon Crisps. We laughed until we cried. She had to take four different time outs, but we got the pies made for Thanksgiving. It is a treasured video memory.
Mockingbird Blueberry Pie
My ceramic 1940 Mockingbird pie steam vent, I have had for many years. I pull it out and use often when I bake a Blueberry pie.
I took about 8 medium sized ripe plums and made this tart, using a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Yummy
