If you’re hoping for favorite child status just do what our son Roger did and make these wonderful pies. He brought them to Thanksgiving dinner and both were outstanding. The pecan may be the best I’ve ever had. Of course, now he has a lifetime job.

Here are the recipes and his notes.

OK. I actually experimented with the apple pie recipe a bit last week. I will give you both versions.

Apple Pie 1


  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flower
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 6 thinly sliced and pealed apples. (mine were 5 grannies and a fuji)
  • 2 tablespoons butter

In a large bowl mix the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir in apples until well mixed . Spoon mixture into crust. Cut butter into small pieces and place around top of mixture. Place second crust on top, overlap and seal edges of crust. Cut vent slits into top crust . Wrap edges of crust with 3 inch strips of aluminum foil.

Bake at 425 for 40-50 min. Remove foil for last 15 min.

Apple Pie 2


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 6 thinly sliced and pealed apples ( 5 fuji and a grannie)
  • 2 tablespoons butter

The crust I used was Pillsbury – easy and apparently very tasty.

Pecan Pie

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup corn syrup ( dark)
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup ( heaping ) Pecans. I took 1/2 the cup of pecans and smashed them
  • with a meat tenderizing hammer. The other choice would be 1/2 cup whole and
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Mix the sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter , eggs and vanilla in a bowl. Pour pecans into the bottom crust, pour mixture into crust . Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes. As good as the apple pies at Thanksgiving were I think the second version was better. I included both because I know it will be a matter of personal preference.

I hope everyone makes and enjoys these.
