I had the day off of work and spent nearly the entire day baking pies. Four pies were made (ranked in order of deliciousness):
2. Triple-Layer Pumpkin Chocolate (the white top is a sweetened sour cream)
3. Classic Pumpkin
4. Cranberry Pear with Crumb Topping
Why was the cranberry pear last? To me, it was a bit too tart. With a scoop of ice cream though, I think it would have been perfect. Why was apple the best? Because my mom's apple pie recipe is always the best. Plus, I changed it up this year by using four different varieties of apple. It turned out quite well.
It was a lot of fun making four pies in one day, but also a heck of a lot of work. Next year, I will have to remember to start baking early in the day. I waited until 2pm to get started, which kept me in the kitchen until nearly midnight. It was worth it though.
