Possibly, the best desert in the whole world is a pie. Not just any pie, but homemade pies with the very best flaky homemade crusts!
It would be hard for me to recommend just one of Mother's pies... so many of these recipes are fabulous. The peach pies are incredible when peaches are in season. I like both the baked fresh peach pie as well as the fresh peach pie with the peach glaze over it... both are to die for!
Mom's Pecan Pie and Mom's Pumpkin Pie are always favorites during the holiday seasons. The pecan is rich and full of flavor. However, fresh whipped cream topping a piece of pumpkin pie is impossible to turn down! So, the solution is to just have a slice of each! For something different the Sour Cream Raisin Pie is delicious.
Mom's Apple Pies with Granny Smith apples are a favorite pie in the fall. When the leaves start to turn, it has always been apple pie time at our house! We've even made a trip or two to the apple orchard when my kids were young to pick our own apples!
Mom's Lemon Pie and Mom's Lemon Chess Pie are both really good. The lemon lime chiffon pie is really tart and yummy and is on a graham cracker crust, so it is a pretty quick dessert. We eat this a lot in the summertime.
Enjoy the many mouthwatering homemade pie recipes in this section. In my opinion, Mom's pies are all blue ribbon masterpieces! I've never tasted a crust that is a match to hers! Don't cut corners by using an instant pie crust... it is not the same! A good crust is what makes the pie! We have several crust recipes here... and Mom assures me they are good... however, I would never use anything but our family's favorite pie crusts, once you've tried it, you will know why I won't use anything else!
This is the old fashioned apple pie, with a fabulous crust! The apples are just the right tartness, and again, the crust is why I eat the pie... It is outstanding!!!
