Usually we think of apples when we think of an old-fashioned crisp but ripe, sweet autumn pears are wondrous in this dish. Just use rip flavorful pears such as Bosc or Anjou or a combination of a few pear varieties. A touch of cranberries brings some added to colour and a light touch of spice makes this a portrait in sensuous fall flavors.

An exceptionally luxurious sweet potato pie, served slightly warmed with crème anglaise, whipping cream (whipped or not) or ice-cream. A pie to be savored for its old-fashioned taste that pleases contemporary palates.

No need to worry about meringues for this lemon wonder. This is a lemon creamsicle in a pie.
You could do a chocolate or caramel version by alternating the fillings; crusts and topping but procedures are the same. I would serve this with raspberry puree to add a splash of color and more summer tartness. Ice Box Pies are no sweat in work or worry over meringue! Citric acid or sour salts or tartartic acid is available through mail order or often, in kosher food sections, or at the pharmacy. It provides an added boost of tartness which is very appealing. If you don't have it, this is still an exceptional summer pie.

A
 trio of apples is what gives this pie its outstanding flavor. Don’t even think about using Granny Smith! Too watery. Honor the Apples painting by choosing apples to match. Select McIntosh, Golden Delicious, Cortland, Jonathans or other sweet autumn apples, in whatever ratio you like. Make sure your spices are as fresh as the apples. Recipe exclusively created for ‘Apples’, by Heather Horton www.heatherhorton.com.

This is a company's company elegant cake. All fuss but not muss. OR is that all muss, no fuss? Fresh brewed espresso is best for this but in a pinch, double strength instant espresso or instant coffee will be fine. I would add a coating of Nutella somewhere in between all the layers - untraditional but sublime.

 

Tollhouse batter pressed into mini muffin tins. Chewy, caramelized, delicious. I pack these up in waxed paper or cello for giving.
Transparently simple to make.

If measures and precision were not part of recipe writing or too-zealous bakers (who forget it's not about the measure, it's about the heart of the matter..), how would this baker write the perfect recipe for an Old-Fashioned Apple Pie? Easy as pie....you write from the heart and true spirit of the baker. It's pie recipes as they really should be written.....for the recipe that goes with this tribute, visit Old Fashioned Apple Pie.
