Daddy was the baker in our house. He was most fond of pie, but just couldn't make a descent crust to save him, until he found this recipe in either a Betty Cocker or Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I don't know which (this was forty-five some years ago). I have looked on Zaar for a recipe like this - and while they are similar they aren't Daddy's. Word to the wise - roll the dough out between two pieces of wax paper - the only way. Do not double the recipe for two crusts - just doesn't work. I make one crust at a time and store in the fridge while making the next. We are crust fiends in our house - so I always make a thicker crust then this recipe produces. I make three portions of this recipes for a two crust pie (1 and 1/2 per crust). Prep time includes cooling time. Cooking times depends on for what you are using the crust. Patience Grasshooper - it will be worth it.
This was submitted to the Houston Chronicle for a pie contest.I dont recall how it placed, but this is an awesome pie!I rarely make any other kind of apple pie. Please do not be put off by the fact that you bake it inside of a grocery bag..it seems odd, but you will be rewarded with a fantastic pie.
A light and luscious ending to a meal. Adopted from the Recipezaar account Feb 2005. This pie works well using all light products, such as sugar free strawberry Jello, fat free, sugar free vanilla Jello pudding, ultra low fat cool whip and skim milk. I used a graham crust when I tried it, but a standard pastry crust or shortbread crust would be good too. The packet size in the recipe is the standard 4 serving size package.
I found this recipe in the first issue of Cooking Light and it really is great. Adding the egg white is a brilliant idea! Holds together very well. I am diabetic so I love the reduced sugar and reduced fat content.
I love the taste of mouth watering Fresh Blueberry Pie! Yum! This blueberry pie is probably the best I have ever tasted. I hope you will enjoy it, too! I do not use the refrigerated pie crust when making this pie, I use recipe #26205. A NOTE to those who have made this pie before, I have increased the amount of flour in the ingredients list from 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup.
This is the apple pie I've been making for years and if using Pillsbury pie crusts (ready-made pie dough in the dairy section) is the perfect pie-making project for kids. Recipe adapted from an old church cookbook.
