    My grandmother gave me this apple pie recipe after she made it for me during a visit about 5 years ago. I like to use Granny Smith apples, leave the peel on, and cut slices that are a little thick, but do whatever you wish! This is a very good pie and I'm always asked to make it! Thanks, Grandma!! (Very good served with vanilla ice cream!)

    Recipe #31128

    This was my dad's favorite pie, and my mom got the recipe from his mother. It's been replicated all over the internet in the past few years. I think the first incidence can be documented to 1995.

    Recipe #27021

    Peach pie using fresh peaches.

    Recipe #425418

    A too cute idea from http://www.ourbestbites.com/2009/09/single-serving-pie-in-jar.html . This is a great gift-giving idea for a wedding, party favors or everyday. The half pint jars with wide mouth and straight sides can be purchased and/or ordered from your local hardware store, Amazon, Fred Meyer's or a feed store for about $9. Also, keep a lookout at garage sales. The jars are made of tempered glass and can handle the heat. Vary the fillings and it has been suggested making pumpkin or even chicken pot pies. These can be baked immediately, but designed to be baked frozen. Keep the heat high to promote a crisp crust, otherwise a lower heat will melt the butter producing a soggy crust. Don't worry about how long these can be frozen for they probably won't last that long. One more tip, it has been suggested to place a silpat sheet on the bottom of the baking sheet to prevent the cups from sliding around. For best show, allow to cool and pop the pies from the jars onto a serving plate.

    Butter tarts are a Canadian tradition. Waaaay back in the 1970s, a national contest here in Canada concluded that these butter tarts, originating from Wilkie's Bakery in Orillia, Ontario, were the best. I certainly think so and it's the only recipe I use. Add a sprinkle of toasted walnuts when you add the raisins, if you wish, or use only walnuts if you don't like raisins.

    My grandma made the most wonderful custard pie. When I got to stay the night or weekend with her, she would always have this for me. Of course I could never ever make this like I remembered until I finally asked her for the recipe. One thing I cannot replicate is the use of fresh whole milk, but have come up with a pretty close substitution. THIS is comfort food at its' finest.

    Recipe #276643

    This is the best apple pie recipe that I have tasted.<><

    Recipe #361369

    Another recipe from "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook": "The little girls of Avonlea school always pooled their lunches, and to eat three raspberry tarts all alone or even to share them only with one's best chum would have forever and ever branded as "awful mean" the girl who did it. And yet, when the tarts were divided among ten girls you just got enough to tantalize you. " (from "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery). Times are estimated and do not include cooling time beyond the initial 15 minutes (included in cooking time). The original recipe did not specify the size of package of frozen berries, so I guessed a 10 oz package based on the fresh raspberry substitution.

    Recipe #363473

    Jam tarts are a quintessential British teatime treat - little crispy short crust pastry rounds filled with assorted fruit jams, such as strawberry, raspberry, apricot, blackcurrant and lemon curd. They were the first things my mum taught me to bake when I was little, and in turn, I taught my daughter how to make them when she was very small. Here I have suggested that as a Valentine's Day treat, you top the jam tarts with a little pastry heart........after all, the way to a loved one's heart is through their stomach! Jam Tarts normally do NOT have any pastry topping however, so for the rest of the year, just make them as posted with no pastry lid, or use other suitable shapes appropriate for a special event. I have posted homemade short crust pastry, it is so easy to make and is far superior to ready-made, although I DO use ready-made when I am short of time! Try to use good quality or homemade jams and jellies, the higher the fruit content, the less the jam or jelly will bubble out of the pastry case. These are essential for any English Tea Party, especially if Alice in Wonderland has been invited............along with the white rabbit! Have fun!

    These little tasty treats are always a hit. They taste just like an apple pie, except they are mini sized and easy to eat. They are great to take to a party because there is not cutting and serving needed. People always rave about these. I think their pretty tasty too! My hubby loves to eat them warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Maybe a little caramel sauce drizzled over top! Mmmmm...

    This is a wonderful apple pie filling that you make in the fall when apples are in abundance. During the winter months, just pull a package of pie filling from the freezer, defrost, and pour into your favorite pie crust. This makes enough filling for 4 pies.

    Recipe #186868

    From Taste of Home magazine, makes 2 small tarts. My DH loves pecan pie, but I can't eat it--so this is a nice way to make him enough (but not too much!) pecan pie to satisfy his occasional hankering! It's pretty easy to make. You'll need a couple of 4-inch tart pans with removable bottoms. Times are estimates, and cook time includes time to chill dough. Time does not include cooling time after baking.

    TO DIE FOR!! Nice and quick for that morning tea with the girls!! * Hint: Use wet fingertips when pressing coconut mixture into patty pan. * Shortcut: To make chocolate filling, place cream and chocolate into a heatproof microwave-safe bowl. Heat, uncovered, for 1 to 11/2 minutes on HIGH (100%) power, stirring every 30 seconds, or until melted and smooth. Time does not include cooling time in fridge.

    Recipe #265616

    I've lightened the original recipe for German's Sweet Chocolate Pie a bit, and we all love it! Cooking time is time to freeze.

    Recipe #165201

    This is from one of those coupon and recipe booklets that accompanied my TOH magazine; the recipe is from Nestle. Since raspberry season is around the corner, I wanted to make sure I didn't lose the recipe! It sounds yummy and simple. Times are guesses for now.

    Recipe #172460

    ***NOTE: I do NOT recommend making this at this time! An attempt to make this myself came out horribly wrong, and I'm certain it wasn't me. I need to do some research and see if I can fix this recipe. When I do, I will correct it and remove this note.**** A delicious pie; the only pie I've ever had where I actually liked the meringue! The filling is a sort of custardy texture that goes very well with the meringue topping. Prep time is estimated.

    This traditional South African Melktert or Milk Tart is a variation of an egg custard pie which originated with the Dutch settlers who came South Africa in the 17th Century. Melktert was then adapted and made a purely South African creation by the Cape Malays. Apparently wives reputations hang on their Melkterts and recipes are family heirlooms. So, for something exotic and a bit different, give this a try.

    Recipe #173067

    Creamy filling with fresh strawberries and strawberry glaze. Does it get any better? The hours in the prep time reflect chilling time.

    Recipe #168984

    Mother's pecan pie for chocolate lovers! We always had this during the holidays and other special occasions when pecans were in season in the South. Very rich, so cut small pieces! This freezes well and makes nice holiday gifts!
