I don't think you will find a better pie pastry, not only is this easy to handle but bakes outs flaky and light and has a rich buttery flavor! --- you could use 3 cups all purpose flour but the crust will not be as flaky --- here's a tip, to prevent a soggy pie crust brush a thin layer of egg white over the bottom crust before filling --- *NOTE* this can also be made using a processor with great results, which is the way I most always do (see instructions below the recipe) if you are making this on a food processor cube the butter and lard into about 1-inch pieces and then partially freeze.
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.
Low fat but you get to enjoy the puff pastry due to the use of such low fat ingredients in the filling.:) the totals are still well below a low fat diet number.

***PLEASE NOTE I HAVE CORRECTED THE NUMBER OF PIES WHICH THIS RECIPE MAKES, FROM 2 TO 4... THANK YOU TO THE REVIEWERS FOR BRININGT HIS TO MY ATTENTION****Compilation of other recipes I've tried in the never ending quest to duplicate another one of my grandmother's recipes. Many make this with lemon zest/juice or candied citron. We always served this on Easter, it's not too sweet, and not too heavy either> Just right after a big Easter Dinner.
This is old-fashioned, from scratch, comfort food. This has been a family favorite for years. I like to take this to other families when they are in need of a meal. It's always a winner. I like making it with leftover turkey, too! I often add some cooked diced potatoes.
This is a recipe for pumpkin pie which I have sort of concocted myself. It is absolutely delicious, and unbelievably lowfat/low-calorie. It's perfect for diabetics or those watching their weight, but it tastes so yummy that most people would love it! It is a bit spicy, so if you don't like spices very much, leave out the cloves.
This recipe is a combination of a Southern Living Recipe and my Grandmother's recipe. I used short cuts when they worked and this is a recipe that my whole family loves. Even when older kids leave for college, they beg to take some of this with them! All ages love this and the house smells great! Great comfort food! Line your oven with foil paper; there is a lot of filling. Or you can divide it and make one pot pie for now and one for later!
This pie is so rich. It is so quick and easy. It is also enjoyed quick and easy. You must try this for your next Chocolate Pie. I HAVE to make it EVERY Thanksgiving, especially for son Kevin and son-in-law Dwain. My sister-in-law, Sherry, entered it in their 1996 church cookbook, "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread", Wise County, Texas.
Don't like too sweet pecan pie? You'll like this one then, it's mostly nuts with just enough filling to hold them together. Nice change of pace and very decadent. I saw a pecan pie at a local Creole restaurant, in a suburb of Washington DC, that gave me the idea to develop this one.
I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned recipe adoption. I made this the next day and it is so delicious! The crust is so easy to work with and has great flavor! If you like your apple juices to be a little thicker, add a tablespoon of flour to the mixture. This is so delicious... perfect for first time pie makers or expert pros! Enjoy!
This dough is great for making pizza pockets, hot sandwich pockets, fruit pies ("fritter") and whatever you can imagine. It doesn't take long to make if you have those little dough presses that make the crimped edges. This came from my efforts to make fritters for my husband like his mom used to make. Success!! :)The cook time will be different depending on filling, so it is an estimated time for fried pies. Cooking fillings for hot pockets will increase prep and cook time.
The thing with meyer lemons is that they're much less bitter than regular lemons. They're cross-bred with mandarin oranges, so you get all the citrus in a much milder form. I'm not usually a fan of lemon anything but these are just irresistibly luscious.
My mother has been making this recipe for over 20 years. The original recipe comes from the cookbook White Trash Cooking by Matthew Meckler. This has a dense texture and intense almost dark chocolate flavor instead of a creamy pudding type filling.
I've been making this wonderful pie for years. It's so easy and tasty. Everyone wonders what's in it. This pie can bake while you eat dinner and then, voila...hot apple pie for dessert. Yum!
UPDATE: I've been asked if instant pudding mix is OK--yes! When the recipe was published there was no instant; tried the instant in it--works fine! LOL
