Homemade Apple Pie

Welcome to an entire post about my favorite autumnal topic: Homemade Apple Pie. This pie is PERFECTION. Simple and classic; it’s the apple pie version of the perfect white t-shirt we spend years searching for.

This is of course an updated blog post; I wrote a post all about Classic Apple Pie years ago and it was made over and over and I have some new thoughts on execution.

Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie

Hello, you pie-loving humans. I’m here with another pie. This one is slightly different. This Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie IS IT!

Why Is this Butterscotch Pumpkin Pie the Best?

– It’s made in a cookie crust which is infinitely less annoying than blind baking pie crust. I refuse to blind bake unless it’s for a pudding pie which is barely worth it. But worth it.

– This butterscotch pumpkin pie is SILKY SMOOTH! Truly delicious.

– It can be made ahead and it’ll still be delicious.

Butterscotch VS. Caramel

It’s this easy: butterscotch is made with brown sugar, where caramel is made with white sugar.

That’s it. I like my butterscotch not burnt or taken too far but just right.

If you hate making pie crust, this is super easy. It’s a gingersnap crust taken from the No-Bake Pumpkin Pie from The Year of Cozy. I steal from myself!

Classic Cherry Pie

My entire world could be crumbling, but if I have a pie crust to make/eat, all is ok in the world.

Good thing I had this pie because this week has been trying. It’s been one for the records in terms of toughness. Amelia is having her own rough week because she hates fireworks and my neighborhood always decides it’s a great time to shoot off fireworks for the whole week of Fourth of July. She’s been hiding in the bathroom all today. EMOJI CRYING FACE!

So, we’ve both stress-eaten a bit of pie. Can you blame us?

Classic Cherry Pie

Summer is a sad sight without cherries.

They’re the best part of summer. Last fall I made a simple apple pie and took it to a dinner and sort of scratched my head as to how or why there wasn’t a classic and simple apple pie on this blog. So I fixed that issue.

Now, I’m fixing the issue that there isn’t a classic cherry pie recipe on this blog. Because sometimes you don’t want something complicated. Perfectly ripe summer fruit doesn’t need much manipulation—it’s a gem on its own. Just sweet summer cherries swimming in a pool with sugar and tapioca starch and cinnamon and salt. Nothing overpowers, nothing really stands out except the beautiful sweet cherries.
