I love this pie during summer and I love this pie during winter (when I’m dreaming of summer). The “little wild blackberries” are the perfect combination of tart and sweet. If you don’t have wild Pacific blackberries you can use the berry of your choice.
This is such an easy dessert and a great way to use up pie crust scraps for the garnish. Sugar cookies would also be a great topper if you don’t have any pie crust handy. I like making an assortment so that everyone can have their favorite and so you can take advantage of all of the fresh fruits of summer.
Your kids can help make these pocket pies which are like a cross between a piece of pie and a fruit-filled pastry. Let them choose their favorite fruit filling and let them cut them in the shape of their choice.
I have been making these for a long time and they have never let me down. They are bite-sized, refreshing and the perfect combination of sweet, creamy and tart.
I love the coconut macaroon tart shells so much that I decided to fill them with a simple combo of sliced strawberries and homemade whipped cream. They are light, refreshing, and offer an alternative to strawberry shortcake when strawberries are in season.
This coconut macaroon tart shell would be a great crust for many pies and tarts. It is quick and easy to mix it together and press it into the pans. Fill the tart shells with pudding, fruit or any other filling of your choice.
I use this pie crust whenever I make berry pies. It is thin and light, and it has a great buttery flavor that complements any type of filling.
The best part about this pie crust is how easy it is to make. Simply mix the ingredients and pat the dough into the pie pan. No rolling pins required!
You can’t have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner without pumpkin pie. This standard version is easy to throw together. I use an easy press-in-the-pan pie crust that saves a lot of time compared to the rolled out versions. For a unique way to serve your pumpkin pie, prepare mini pumpkin pies in muffin tins.
One of the best parts about this pie (besides the large tender chunks of cinnamon-sugar apple baked under a melt-in-your-mouth streusel topping) is the incredibly easy pat-in-the-pan pie crust. Don’t fuss with rolling out the pie crust; simply mix the dough and press it into the pan.
