The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing colour and there is a cool bite to the morning air. Weather like this that makes you want to dig into a warm piece of homemade pie. You don’t need an excuse like Thanksgiving to bake a pie, all you need are some fresh ingredients and a little quality time in your kitchen in your Timbercreek Community.

Let’s dig in, shall we?!


Deep Dish Apple Pie

Apples are in season right now. Grab a few at your local market and try your hand at baking a classic Deep Dish Apple Pie. Use a combination of tart apples like Granny Smith and sweet apples like Braeburn, or Golden Delicious for best results. Using pre-cooked apples allows you to get twice as many apples stuffed into the deep dish crust.

Pumpkin pie may just be the perfect fall pie. When prepared well, a pumpkin pie is rich and lightly spiced with a creamy, custard texture. This video will show you how to bake a perfect pumpkin pie, every time. You’ll even learn how to prevent your pie from cracking while cooking.Pumpkin Pie

Quebec Sugar Pie

If you haven’t tasted a piece of Quebec Sugar Pie, you need to get on it. In Quebec, it’s called Tarte au Sucre, which means sugar pie. This super sweet treat will satisfy your sweet craving, but enjoy responsibly -- it has a lot of sugar in it!

Caramel Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is pretty close to perfection on a plate, but it gets better! Improve on the classic with the addition of gooey salted caramel. This Caramel Pecan Pie is rich, sweet, indulgent and bold. Enjoy a warm slice of this nutty pie with some whipped cream or ice cream and a cup of bold black coffee.

Butternut Squash Pie

Many people think pumpkin pie is the best fall pie around. We disagree! We love Butternut Squash Pie because it’s even smoother and creamier than pumpkin pie. It’s simple to make and tastes great on a cool fall day. It only takes about 10 minutes of prep time and about an hour in the oven and a then a few more hours in the fridge to cool.

Southern Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie is another close relative to pumpkin pie. Whipped sweet potatoes and sweetened condensed milk combine to create a decadent tasting filling. This pie is a smooth and creamy treat without any of the sharpness or bitterness of pumpkin pie. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Apple Crisp

The cool, crisp days of fall are perfect for Apple Crisp. If you love pie but are a little indifferent to crust, or you don’t have the time to bake a full pie, then crisp may be for you. All you have to do is mix sweetened apples and cinnamon in a bowl and then prepare a simple streusel topping of oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter and bake it all for about an hour.

There’s almost nothing more satisfying than a warm piece of pie in the fall. Pre-heat the oven and put the kettle on. Timbercreek hopes these recipes inspire you to bake some spectacular fall pies.
