Pie #53- Winter Pie January 7, 2013

A big shout out to my good friend, Sharon Weis, who gave me the recipe book Rustic Fruit Desserts by Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson for my birthday back in 2010.  The subtitle on this book says “crumbles, buckles, cobblers, pandowdies and more”.  Although I have yet to bake a buckle or a pandowdie, the “more” portion of the subtitle includes some really incredible recipes for pie.

The winter pie filling includes dried figs, apples, pears and cranberries- all fruit that is in season now. I also liked the idea of baking this pie in a springform pan. My last springform pan pie was Pie #51- Coffee Toffee Pie. And as Travis says, that was a restaurant grade quality dessert. This pie I suspect will not disappoint.

Here’s the recipe.
