Where would America be without Apple Pie? Living in New England, it’s an annual fall ritual to go to a local orchard and pick apples.
Five different apple pies: (from top) tarte tatin, apple pizza, American apple pie, Bavarian apple-cream cheese pie, apple crisp.
Since it’s so much fun and so easy, we always pick lots, and then have a great time figuring out different creative ways to use them.
Our Apple Pie Bake-Off is also a treasured tradition, with three families each making different apple desserts. Here are some of our favorites.

One of my favorite spring pies is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. For a little variety, I tried Rhubarb Apple Pie, and found it delicious. Let’s hear it for rhubarb season!
