Bake the Book: Classic Apple Pie

We begin our feature with a classic: apple pie. The Hoosier Mama Book of Pie takes its time with this one, using an all-butter double crust, and baking a macerated apple filling in its own cooked-down, subtly spiced syrup. They've thought of everything, from a pie wash to gloss the crust, to Crust Dust, a mixture of flour and sugar used to prep the pie shell before filling. It's so good, it's served year-round at Hoosier Mama Pie Company. More

Pie of the Week: Winter Apple Pie with Dried Fruit

It's a time of great anticipation, but also of intense longing and impatience with Mother Nature's scarce offering. Above all, it presents us with the need to get creative with baking ideas. For example, a few weeks ago, I shared a pie made with frozen berries in an attempt to break up the doldrums a bit. Today, I'm jazzed to be sharing another one that thinks outside the seasonal box by marrying apples with tangy and sweet dried fruits. More
