My wife will make her family's pumpkin pie recipe with a butter crust. I'm a sweet potato pie guy, but I did them the last couple years. Now it's her turn.
Ray I like sweet potato also

Great looking pies Richie, and thanks for the mention. Glad you could use the dough and make it your way.
We have mince meat pies couple times a year, but have never had one with meat in them.

Love mini pies.

David I looked at lots of recipes before making this, most call for some sort of beef. The dough recipe I used it after seeing your post with PP & I knew it would be easy to tweek for a regular fruit pie.
Thanks for the Like I appreciate it

Travis Thank you I use to buy the box of mince pie, but I couldn't find it in the stores so I made my own and I'm glad I did.

Past down from the late 1800s is Grandma Mae's family's recipe for Rhubarb Custard pie. Always a must during the holidays.

Pumpkin pie for sure on Thanksgiving. My wife bakes two cheesecakes every year for Christmas. Last year was a cannoli cheesecake and a cinnabon cheesecake.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a mince pie, yours looks great Richie.

Those mince pies look great Richie. Thanks is one of the three days a year I don't do the cooking. A guest will bring a big pumpkin pie from Costco, I'll be too stuffed with dinner to have any, never been big on desserts. RAY

Steve I have used the store bought shells many times, dough is easy to make foamheart foamheart has a good recipe in one of his post. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/first-of-fall-fresh-apple-pie-foamheart.235484/

Thanks Richie. BTW I have an even better one now you need to try, Buttery Flaky and tender.

Try the new pie and the new recipe. Nothing wrong with the one you refrenced, but the newer one is really good too. You should give it a try. You know me always looking for a better way to do it.


Its the one that will be on the table this Thanksgiving at my house. I am thinking maybe a pumpkin or sweet potatoe too. Hard to beat either one.

PS just a Hint here. If you use a real pumpkin, you'll no doubt have extra prepared meat, it freezes great!!
