Simple Pumpkin Pie
You’ll need: 1 can of pumpkin (15 ounces), 2 large eggs, 1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 ounces), 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 unbaked pie crust (9 inches)
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, pour all of the ingredients into a medium sized bowl. Whisk them together until the mixture is smooth.
Step 2: Pour the pumpkin pie filling into the unbaked crust. Then, bake the pie for 15 minutes.
Step 3: After 15 minutes of baking, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking for about 35 minutes (or until a knife inserted 1 inch away from the crust comes out clean).
Step 4: Allow the pie to cool. Garnish as desired.
**Be sure to store this pie in the refrigerator**
Crustless Cranberry Pie
You’ll need: 2 cups of cranberries, 2 eggs, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of white sugar, 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup of butter (melted), 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of almond extract
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, grease a 9-inch pie pan.
Step 2: Next, combine the sugar, flour, and salt in a large bowl. After combining the dry ingredients, stir in the cranberries and walnuts. Toss to coat.
Step 3: Once everything is coated, stir in the eggs, butter, and almond extract.
Pro Tip: Keep in mind that the mixture will be very thick if you are using frozen cranberries.
Step 4: Spread the batter into the pie pan. Then, bake the pie for about 40 minutes.
Step 5: Serve and enjoy with whipped cream or ice cream.
Quick and Easy Apple Pie
You’ll need: 6 cups of thinly sliced apples (peeled), 3/4 cups of sugar, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 2 unbaked pie crusts (one for the top and one for the bottom)
Step 1: First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, place the pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate (ungreased). Press the pie crust firmly against the side and bottom of the pie pan.
Step 2: Next, in a large bowl, gently mix together the ingredients for the pie filling. Once mixed, spoon the filling into the pie crust inside of the pie pan.
Step 3: Place the second pie crust on top of the pie filling. Then, press the edges of the two crusts together to seal. Flute the edges. Afterward, cut slits along the top crust.
Step 4: Once the apple pie has been prepared, bake it for 40 to 45 minutes until the apples are golden brown.
Pro Tip: After the first 10-15 minutes of baking, be sure to cover the edges of the crust with 3-inch wide strips of foil in order to prevent over-baking.
Step 5: Allow the apple pie to cool and settle for about 2 hours before serving. For even more enjoyment, serve with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.
