14 Amazing Pie Recipes

For me pies kind of follow the seasons. I love the taste of the fresh berries starting in the spring with the strawberries. The rhubarb plants are usually at their peak at this time pairing real well with the strawberries. For me this is followed by, cherries, red raspberries, blue berries, and then black berries at the end of the summer. If I’m lucky I will have raspberry, blue berry, and blackberry plants producing at the same time to create a delicious triple berry pie combination.  

The fall here in upper Michigan is a beautiful time of year but I just don’t care a lot for the winter that follows (especially this one). Fresh pumpkins make delicious pies, and the apples are usually plentiful creating delicious pie combinations right up until Thanksgiving Day.

Check out the pie recipes I’ve included in this post and the next time you’re in the mood for pie, give one a try.

Wow; what a way to start the morning, warm Coffee Cake Muffins with butter melted on top and fresh coffee. The fact is I wouldn’t even have considered this recipe if my wife hadn’t come home with a little coffee cake bakery treat from the local market. So out came the baking recipe books.

Baking has a tendency to make me a little nervous because it seems like about half of what I bake turns out not looking good enough to post, however most of the time the recipes do taste good. I was happy with this one and decided it was good enough to share. So if you like coffee cake, give this Coffee Cake Muffins Recipe a try; it’s really good. Inspired by Baking Illustrated.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup pecans (finely chopped)
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons sliced into ½ inch pieces and softened)

  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
Instructions

  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Distribute the butter slices evenly over the top of the flour mixture and work it in with a fork until the butter is about the size of rolled oats. (You can use a food processor for this step – I use my fingers and it works great) remove 1/ 2 cup of the flour mixture and work it into the brown sugar mixture using a fork to create the streusel. Remove ¾ cup of the streusel and set aside.
  4. in a small bowl whisk together the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Mix the baking soda and baking powder into the flour mixture and then mix in the sour cream mixture just until moistened. (Batter will look crumbly) and then fold in the ¾ cup of the streusel.
  5. Using a large spoon divide the batter between 12 regular muffin cups lightly sprayed with cooking spray, or 6 jumbo muffin cups; divide and sprinkle the remaining streusel over the top pressing lightly to incorporate the streusel into the muffins. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out with just a couple of crumbs attached to it. (For jumbos baking time will almost double)
  6. After a couple of minutes remove the muffing to a cooling rack and serve warm.
  7. Tip: These reheat really nice in the microwave topped with butter.

Oatmeal White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Christmas time means cookies and they don’t get much better than this Oatmeal White Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Craisins Recipe. If you’re into creating cookies for the Charismas season add this cookie recipe to your collection; they are really good. I thought I would just eat one to see how they tasted but unfortunately I didn’t stop there-after 3 I figured I had better get them into the freezer or there would be none left for Christmas. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and the white chocolate and Craisins blend very well together. The cookie dough is very thick and hard to work with a spoon, so I used my hands and formed them like I was making meatballs, and this method worked out very well. You can always press them down a little bit with a fork if you want them a little flatter. Enjoy-adapted from Craisins packaging.
