These homemade pies are the best pie recipes ever! Easy made from scratch recipes that are perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any season. Whether you want pumpkin, apple or something with chocolate, these pies are the best!
I’m passionate about pie, because I know from experience that nothing tops it. You can’t buy it at the grocery store. Nothing compares to the fresh ingredients you find in these pies.
My mom grew up baking pies with her grandmother. And in turn my mother taught me how to make pie. Pies can be a recipe that can intimidate, but don’t let that happen to you! These 8 pies and the homemade pie crust recipe I’m sharing with you are the very best pie recipes because they can be made by anyone. Anyone!
With a little bit of time, you too can be making fresh peach pie, or cherry pie made with canned cherries, or pumpkin pie that the whole family will love.

Comments & Reviews
Hi, I made your pie crust which is very similar to what I usually make but makes a larger batch. I always do my flour and shortening mixture in a food processor and make several batches at a time and then put that in the freezer to use later. This saves lots of cleanup and is really cold to use when ready. I do roll out dough and freeze in pie plates which is so easy to pull out quickly.
I also don’t put extra flour on bottom of crust, I use wheaties or cornflakes. Bottom crust is really flaky since they absorb extra juices.
Thanks for the hints and recipes
