My pie turned out soupy…………………………..

Pay attention to bake times: one reason you’ll often end up with a runny fruit pie is simply that it hasn’t been baked long enough. Any thickener you use needs a little time to set up, and people often see their crust turning light brown and think the pie is done when it’s really not.

One of America’s Favorites – Custard Pie

Custard pie – A coconut cream pie

A custard pie is any type of uncooked custard mixture added to an uncooked or partially cooked crust and baked together. In North America, custard pie commonly refers to a plain mixture of milk, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and sometimes nutmeg combined with a pie crust. It is distinctly different from a cream pie, which contains cooked custard poured into a cooled, precooked crust. In the United Kingdom, the comical or political act of pieing is conventionally done with a “custard pie”. Some common custard pies include pumpkin pie, lemon and buttermilk chess pie, coconut cream pie, and buko pie. True custard is defined as a liquid thickened with eggs. Due to the often large number of whole eggs in custard pie it is a very rich pie.

The Ancient Romans were the first to understand the binding properties of eggs. During the Middle Ages, the first custard pies, as we know them, began to appear. Initially, custards were used only as fillings for pies, pastries and tarts. Both Europe and Asia had recipes that contained custards. The word custard is derived from ‘crustade’ which is a tart with a crust. After the 16th century, custards began to be used in individual dishes rather than as a filling in crusts.

Today, custards are used as filling in pies and tarts, and as individual dishes. Ideally a custard pie should be light and delicate, but still have good body. Custards can be made in two ways: baked or stirred upon the stove, but most custard pie recipes call for baking. The eggs in custard mixtures, when cooked, turn from liquid to solid. If cooked over excessive heat, the eggs will curdle, which is extremely undesirable. Curdling can be prevented by using lower temperatures and stirring. As such, making true custard pie is a very delicate process.

A slice of pear custard pie

Savory pies with meat fillings were far more common than sweet pies in the Cuisine of the Thirteen Colonies. Sweet pies, when they were available, were made with a simple custard base of fresh milk, sugar and eggs. Some of these traditional pies like buttermilk pie, almond custard, Irish potato pie and bean pie (associated with the Nation of Islam) are uncommon in modern times.

Apples for the Apple Pie……………………

If you’re looking for the best apples for apple pie go ahead and pick up a bag of Granny Smiths. They’re everyone’s go-to apples for baking because they’re tart and firm, keeping their shape while providing a perfect balance to the sweet ingredients.

About that Pumpkin Pie……………………….

Cool your pie for at least four hours before serving. If you prefer warm pie, let it cool, and then give it a quick nuke in the microwave. As your pie cools, the center will firm up. You will avoid a dry overcooked filling that may crack on you – nobody wants to bring a cracked pie to Thanksgiving dinner.

Healthy Cobbler Recipes
Find healthy, delicious cobbler recipes including berry, peach, pear and strawberry cobbler. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Slow-Cooker Apple Cobbler
This crock pot apple cobbler couldn’t be easier: just spend 15 minutes prepping the apple mixture and cake topping, then let the slow cooker take care of the rest. We like the mixture of Honeycrisp and Fuji apples, but you can use other apples, such as Gala or Pink Lady, or add some Granny Smiths for tartness. Just steer clear of softer apples like Macintosh or Golden Delicious, which will get too mushy in the slow cooker. The apples release their juices, which marry with the sugar to create a delicious caramelly sauce, while the topping puffs up and takes on a lovely brown color. This simple fall dessert is delicious as-is or with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream……………..

Low-Carb Blueberry Cobbler
Old-fashioned desserts like blueberry cobbler never go out of style, but this updated version has significantly fewer grams of sugar than traditional recipes. To cut carbs, gluten-free flours replace wheat flour in the biscuit topping………………….

Peach Cobbler
A fruit cobbler is an old-fashioned, crowd-pleasing dessert that showcases summer’s sweetest produce. Use fresh peaches when they are in season. The rest of the year, you can use frozen peaches for a quick and easy homemade dessert………………
