Forgotten Pie Recipes We Should Start Baking Again

For many baked goods lovers like me fall and winter are pie season, a time to cook all those yummy pies we rarely get around to making in the spring or summer.

There's a whole list of standards such as pecan, apple, pumpkin and berry which we know we're going to bake every year, but isn't it about time to broaden our pie horizons?

I like to start my search for new recipes by looking at the recipes of the past, which is why I found the mental_floss article 8 Forgotten Pie Recipes We Should Bring Back so appealing.

I've made mincemeat pies before, once with a traditional recipe that included beef, but never a shoofly, sugar cream or buttermilk chess pie, which all sound simply irresistible.

And while vinegar pie doesn't sound very appetizing, and Marlborough pie sounds like a tobacco-based recipe, each and every pie on the list looks heavenly according to the recipes provided.

A few months ago I had my daughter over and she wanted to bake something and I told her I had store-bought pie crust, but nothing to put in it and did not feel like a trip to the store. We rooted around in the cupboards and all we could find was a bib box of raisins. She dug through some old cookbooks I have (from the 30's and 40's - they are wonderful!) and found a recipe for raisin pie. Sounded strange but we went ahead and made it and it was absolutely amazing - - one of the best pies I have ever had.

I love me some mincemeat pie! The trick is to NOT tell the kids it's called mincemeat until after they've had some. Just tell them it's apple-raisin pie or pear-orange pie or whatever is really in it.
