Fat whores rejoice! It's pie season!

Everyone loves pie! It's so warm and cozy! Do you bake your own pies? I love pumpkin, dutch apple, and pecan pies. Sometimes I have cold pumpkin pie for breakfast. 😋

My Mom taught me to make a proper, flaky pie crust, but I only make it now when I bake a quiche. I have to watch my carbohydrate intake, so I have no business keeping a whole sweet pie around the house. I'm lucky that my city has a number of really nice bakeries, so I just treat myself to an occasional piece of pie with some good strong coffee. This summer, I've had key lime, coconut cream, lemon meringue, and peach pies. I'm looking forward to pumpkin, pecan and sweet potato pie. I limit myself to one piece of pie per week.

If you are Paleo you can make a crust with cauliflower and parmesan cheese and do the filling with meat, like pig ears which have a lot of healthy stuff in them and then eat some raw vegetables for the enzymes but no gluten.

R30, Yes you can make peach pie from canned fruit. Just use less sugar.

by Anonymousreply 3709/13/2019

R23, I'm a lady-like man, but here's my simplified recipe. It's not written down. I'm a cook, but not a great baker. I can feed you something very tasty, but my cakes can be hit-or-miss.

When I make quiche: one stick of sweet butter, cut into small bits (chilled, hopefully). BTW, European bakers: 1 stick of American butter = 1/2 cup. I apologize for the non-Brits, but I know Brits know what a cup is, since I've watched Mary Berry cook back in the 70s. If I can convert 2 st into pounds every time some lardass British unknown celebrity squeezes into a sausage casing, then you can, too.

One cup and one half of all-purpose flour. One half teaspoon of salt (you can add more, once you taste). One of my trucs (French hoidty-toidty version of tricks): season the damned flour, before you blend it into the fat. For a savory cheese pie, like a quiche, you might add some white pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, and some nutmeg. For a sweet pie, like cherry or blueberry, a bit of nutmeg (again) or cinnamon, and a drop or two of almond extract added to the cold water.

And then, of course, the ice water. Add it only by spoonfuls. You don't want the pie dough to come together into a cohesive mass: that means it will be a piece of cardboard. It's supposed to be crumbly and flaky. I use an old-fashioned pastry blender (substitute two forks), until the mixture of fats and flour becomes crumby, then add the cold water, only a tiny bit at a time, before it starts to stick together. But, if in doubt, don't add all the water. You need to try to get it to stick together, into a loose ball. Then, form it into a ball, and wrap it in cellophane (cling-film for the Brits), and leave it in the fridge for at least a half hour. That will allow the water to moisten the rest of the dough.

When I take the dough out of the fridge, I have two pieces of wax paper torn off the roll and waiting. I put the ball of dough between the two pieces of paper, then start rolling them out (you really start by beating them at the center of gravity, to force the butter and flour mixture to start forming sheets). Roll them out into the approximate size of your pie plate, then roll them over your roller, and lift them up off the board, to place them in the pie plate.

For a quiche, I usually add some crispy strips of cooked bacon, some sliced onions, cooked until they're beginning to brown, and some shredded cheese: Gruyere is impeccable, but I usually use Comte, which I buy from Costco, where it's not at all expensive. But, if you have shreds of other decent cheeses, just shred them and add to the filling. For the liquid, I use one and a half cups of half and half, and three eggs, but you could get by with two eggs, and substitute either whole milk or heavy cream.

Put in a hot oven (425 F) for 15 minutes, to help brown the top. You should add a bit dots of butter to help the top brown, but if you cooked the bacon the same day, a drizzle of bacon fat (yes, I type fat) works very well. For sweet pies, obviously just butter, but I surprised myself how well bacon fat worked on a cherry pie. Then, turn the heat down to 350 F, and bake for at least 30 minutes (I start watching at that point).

My main object: pie filling depends on the pie filling itself. I really like a variety of pie fillings, but I limit my consumption. But, if you're going to bake a pie yourself, your crust should be delicate and flaky, and actually taste like something itself. I'm very lucky that I learned pie crust at my Mom's elbow, since even my little sister has never mastered it.

by Anonymousreply 3809/13/2019

R5 I usually make Dear Abby's Famous Pecan Pie, and I don't get any complaints. The only change I make is light brown sugar instead of dark. You can also replace the corn syrup and brown sugar with Lyle's Golden Syrup for an even richer taste.

Gooseberries and currants are rarely cultivated in the US, since they're the alternate hosts of White Pine Blister Rust. There are a number of native species, though. I like black currant and red currant jam from France, but otherwise, I've never seen gooseberries or currants for sale. Growing up, our Appalachian neighbors raised gooseberries, so I've had gooseberry pie. My Mom always made rhubarb pie every spring to share with our neighbors.

The only time it's worth going to the extra trouble of making your own pie crust is if it's a double-crust pie, or galette. If it's just a single-crust pie, then it's not worth the hassle because the crust is almost an afterthought anyway. It cuts your prep time in half.

The best frozen pie crust I've found is Wholly Wholesome. It works great for a single crust pie. They make a whole wheat version which is terrible, so make sure you get the "Traditional" one.
