The Greatest Pie Mashup: Apple-Pecan Bourbon-Caramel Pie

Apple pie and pecan pie: two world-famous classics. But let's be honest, one's a little wholesome and the other's a little too sweet. You know which is which. But what if we combine them into a single pie with an apple filling and a pecan bourbon-caramel top "crust"? And what if we told you it's easier to make and assemble than either of the originals? This may be the greatest pie mashup ever. More

Domino's CinnaStix Apple Crisp

The combination of apples and cinnamon is a classic with good reason. It has a comforting warmth from autumnal spices and the hearty, tart apples.

Here, we balance the sweetness of our CinnaStix topping with a tart, boozy apple base. More

This Rustic Apple-Cranberry Pie Is So Darn Easy it Doesn't Even Need a Pie Plate

For me, a rustic pie—if you want to be fancy you can call it a galette—is a heck of a lot less stressful and no less satisfying. This one has a deep, concentrated apple flavor dotted with tart cranberries and a warm, flaky crust that doesn't get soggy as it sits. More

The Best Squash Lasagna

Roasted squash and sage are classic fall and winter flavors. I wanted to find the best way to incorporate them into a rich, creamy lasagna.
