Apple Pie with Stovetop Filling

Apple pie with stovetop filling comes together quickly, and is accented with a whisper of beautiful flower waters (get them here). I have to admit that the apple pie here is typically last or near-last on the list of must-make for Thanksgiving. As a stand-alone pie especially when apple season hits in the fall, apple

Apricot Jam Tart + Canned Jam

This apricot tart is the glory of all that is apricot–deeply fruity, tart, and yes, sunny, especially when its made with homemade preserves. I love the crust too, with the zing of lemon zest and a great short texture. The first winter I spent living in Harbor Springs by myself, I spent many hours, many

Lemon Meringue Tart, The Most Extraordinary

This lemon meringue tart is the most gorgeous, extraordinary tart of its kind. The lemon cream filling is enriched with butter and deep lemon flavor. The recipe can be taken in parts, with the almond crust and lemon filling made in advance. You can imagine how long the days, how sore the back, how bruised

Chocolate-Caramel Pecan Tart Recipe

I present to you this prize of my recipe collection with what can only be described as…guilt. My mother recently asked what I’d be posting in the lead-up to Thanksgiving. I knew she had pie on her mind because that is the topic of the hour at any given time in our house, starting at

Dutch Apple Pie with Rosewater

A very favorite way with apple pie: dutch apple pie with rosewater. The nutty crumb topping and a combo of apples make a perfectly balanced pie. I know why you don’t make this. That’s what my sister said when we had just put the finishing touches on a fresh fruit trifle this summer. It’s too

Vegan Coconut Oil Pie Crust crimped

Coconut Oil Pie Crust

Pie crust made with coconut oil is a dream to handle, and results in a rich, tender crust that holds its shape beautifully. A vegan recipe to count on! It’s no secret around here that I’m hopelessly devoted to the pie crust I grew up with, a.k.a.: My Mom’s Best Pie Crust. The flakiness of

Sour Cherry Galette with Cream Cheese Crust

This cherry galette is a free-form pie that is easy to roll out with my cream cheese crust, and easy to assemble into a rustic round. Use tart or sour cherries for classic cherry pie flavor. The possibilities for sour cherries are endless. They’re a natural for Lebanese recipes, fitting right in with our penchant

No Butter Pie Crust

My mom’s no butter pie crust is on deck in the days leading up to any holiday around here. The pie crusts (and the whole pies!) can be frozen, making quick work the morning of. Mom’s no-butter pie crust is ultra flaky, whereas butter crusts, at least to me, are more shortbread cookie in their

    I have always made butter crusts, and I agree they’re a bit hard to work with. I am excited to try your Mom’s oil crust, but I am wondering if I can blind bake single crust for things like custard, pecan, or lemon meringue? I have blind baked in the past and have had good luck with it. I hate a soggy bottom.
