Fresh Sugar Pumpkin Pie

Canned pumpkin? No, not me. For decades now, I have opted out! Have you ever had pumpkin pie made from real pumpkins? Canned pumpkin filling is good, but using the real pumpkin tastes even better.

Impossible French Apple 10-Inch Pie

“ ’The pie that does the impossible by making its own crust’.  The Impossible Recipes by Bisquick became popular in the 1970’s and people love them.   This delicious French Apple Pie recipe is from 1983 and you don’t see it anymore. I think it’s because it uses a 10-inch pie plate and those are hard to find these days. I don’t think there’s an Impossible Pie…
