Chunks of pumpkin are boiled on the stove and then mashed with evaporated milk, sugar, eggs, and spices to create the filling for a shortening based crust in this delectably rustic Thanksgiving classic.

There is nothing to beat a fresh blueberry pie. It doesn't need much: sugar, a bit of cornstarch to thicken all the nice juices and cinnamon. It's perfect with fresh berries, but still mighty fine with frozen ones.
Tired of ordinary old apple pie? Well this fabulous recipe adds a delicious twist to the apply classic. Sliced, unadorned apples are mounded into a pie crust and topped with a lattice crust. Then, just before baking, a sweet, thick sugar syrup is poured carefully onto the crust. An hour later, the apples are tender and fragrant and the crust a glistening brown.
