    A simplified & delicious version of 'Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie'. Courtesy Eagle Brand.

    Recipe #154996

    3 Reviews |  By BecR

    My very favorite apple pie, since childhood!! For the crust I always use Dad's Mazola No-Roll Pastry Shell recipe #117824 #117824. Dad always used Granny Smith apples, but I've found that Pink Lady apples also work beautifully in this pie--sometimes I use a combination of Granny Smith and Pink Ladies. Don't forget the vanilla ice cream! (Note: for those of you uncomfortable using a brown paper bag in the oven, you can omit that step and bake w/o the bag- - it's quite good that way too, -but- it won't be quite the same. Baking in the bag really does produce the most amazing pie!). I hope you enjoy this pie as much as we do!

    This pastry crust is so tender and flaky, and best of all SO EASY! I can't say enough good things about this pastry recipe, so you simply MUST TRY it---you will NEVER go back!! A treasured family recipe from my dear father---he never gave the recipe to anyone (except family), so shhh don't tell!!! Waaay better than any other I've ever tried. My Dad made 'Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie' (2 pumpkin pies every Thanksgiving!) and his extra-special 'Apple Pie In A Bag' recipe #117825 with this crust, and I use it for ALL of my pie baking!!! I hope you enjoy! (note: makes a single 8 or 9-inch crust).

    A foolproof pie of chocolate and pecans, laced with your favorite bourbon--what's not to like! If you have unexpected company, grab a frozen crust from your freezer, and this will be ready in no time. A little ice cream on top is good. Originally from Wild Turkey Distillery.

    Recipe #144552

    This mocha and fudge pie is always a huge hit with family and guests! A spectacular yet easy to prepare make-ahead dessert. Simply assemble in advance, and then store in the freezer until serving time. Serve with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top. YUM! Note: Cook time is freezer time.

    Totally delicious and refreshing, this creamy margarita cheesecake pie pairs beautifully with a spicy Mexican meal of tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans. Very easy prep, with no baking required, so it's also a wonderful make-ahead dessert! Cook time is chill time. P.S. I sometimes cheat and use a prepared graham cracker crust. I hope you enjoy!

    From "The Original Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice" bottle label. A nice lighter version of the famous pie. No baking required. Cook time is chill time.

    Recipe #117748

    The dough is a little like a sugar cookie dough and doesn't get soggy with the fruit. Fill with fresh strawberries or your favorite fruit (my personal favorite is an assortment of sliced peaches, cherries, kiwis, and fresh strawberries arranged over a thin layer of custard topped with a clear jelly glaze, served with a dollop of whipped cream). Mom's favorite was simply fresh sliced strawberries with strawberry glaze, and whipped cream on the side. Delicious!! A great seasonal dessert. You will need a 10 or 11 inch boden torte pan for this recipe. The boden recipe is adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook", the filling is all mine.

    Traditional German Obst Kuchen is a Fresh Fruit Flan with a sponge-type cake base, sometimes with a thin layer of custard, topped with fresh fruit and then sealed with a fruit glaze. Obst Kuchen is very typically served throughout Germany during the afternoon coffee hour, with dollops of freshly whipped cream. One of my favorite toppings is fresh whole strawberries with a red currant or strawberry glaze. Fresh raspberries or other fresh or canned fruits such as kiwis, apricots, cherries, gooseberries, and pineapple are also popular. The traditional pan used is a 10-inch German flan pan, however a torte or springform pan would also work. Adapted from my friend Maite C's Obst Kuchen Boden recipe that was given to me when we were stationed at Ft. Campbell KY.

    This is a beautiful cake to behold! And so easy with a prepared white cake. The frosting is absolutely divine. A wonderful spring or summertime dessert; make this cake at the peak of the season when strawberries are at their reddest and sweetest...enjoy! P.S. Great served with a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

    Recipe #452397

    Fresh strawberry shortcakes served warm with butter and real freshly whipped cream! The key here is to use only the freshest, ripe, sweet strawberries when summer berries are at their peak, and always serve the biscuits warm (and with butter). Adapted from a James Villas recipe.

    These tender scones, studded with fresh strawberries, sport an unusual glaze. Based on granulated sugar rather than confectioners', and tinted gold by a very high percentage of vanilla, the topping gives the scones a nicely crunchy finish. They're the perfect vehicle for a dollop of double Devon cream and a dab of jam (try strawberry-rhubarb or my strawberry jam recipe #388115). Strawberry and Cream Scones are great served warm, slathered in Honey Thyme Butter recipe #428651 or my Homemade Lemon Clotted Cream recipe #453683. From KingArthurRecipes.com.

    Recipe #428672

    Very special cupcakes. Start with a simple Martha Stewart recipe for cupcakes, add a rich creamy filling, and top with an even richer strawberry buttercream made with fresh strawberries and real butter! Lovely for a baby shower, a girls birthday, or a ladies tea. Adapted from "Confessions of a Tart".

    Moist champagne cake with peach schnapps and bits of diced peaches baked in, topped with a peachy champagne buttercream frosting! Taken from Sing For Your Supper.

    Recipe #453695

    I found this easy cassata recipe online, and it looks too good to resist! Here is what Leslie Sarna has to say about her recipe: So, I'm going to let you have a little slice of the secret family recipes! This is my Aunt Carol's recipe for Sicilian Cassata. It's served at every Christmas. If you love cannoli's then you are going to love this recipe! I wish I had a magic wand to erase calories so I could eat this everyday! Now this recipe is not the most traditional, but I think it's the best. Most of the time there is candied fruit inside and it's covered with marzipan, but who needs that stuff? We stick to the liquor, cannoli cream and cake!

    Recipe #447519

    It's basically a Christmas Cake. There's no candied fruit- it's chock full of nuts. And it's drizzled with brandy....a big plus for a Christmas Cake. The only resemblance to fruit cake is the dough before baking- loaded with nuts and not much batter. A Maida Hatter recipe, adapted from Moveable Feasts.

    Recipe #469293

    A rich, fudgy bundt cake baked with Jack Daniel's in the batter and studded with chocolate chips, chopped pecans, raisins, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple pieces. I simply couldn't resist--can you? Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Adapted from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House Cookbook.

    Recipe #466538

    A delicious Old-Fashioned Blueberry Buckle with a touch of cardamom and lemon! Best eaten while still warm, with a cuppa (cup of coffee or tea) or glass of milk, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of fresh whipped cream, as desired. Good for breakfast or as dessert.

    I have an abundance of Lemon Verbena growing in my herb garden, and am constantly on the lookout for verbena recipes. If you are a lemon lover as I am, you will love growing this herb (Aloysia Triphylla/ A. Citrodora). Verbena's exquisite lemony fragrance can be enjoyed in a myriad of treats ranging from lemonade to sorbet to scones to potpourri. Add a little finely grated lemon zest for stronger lemon flavor. These scones are extra lemony-heavenly glazed with my recipe #411928, and served with my recipe #416273. Best eaten warm and on the day they are made. ENJOY! Recipe adapted from an on-line source.

    Great way to use fresh picked blueberries, or frozen wild ones. Tip: Lowbush blueberries, which are wild, hold their shape well when cooking. From "The Berry Bible" by Janie Hibler.
