2. Almond-Browned Butter Plum Pie 

If you are a crust addict, this Almond-Browned Butter Plum Pie is your dream come true. We added super-fine almond flour to the dough for subtle crunch—the perfect contrast to the juicy, sugared plum slices inside.

3. Roasted Strawberry Hand Pies 

When chef Lisa Donovan of Nashville, Tennessee was forming her strawberry filling recipe, she had one particular taste in mind: the sweet strawberry flavor of a spoonful of Smucker’s jam. Slow roasting the berries in sugar yielded the strawberry essence she was searching for.


4. Washington Cherry Pie 

Nothing compares to fresh cherry pie. This Washington Cherry Pie is simple and classic, sure to become a staple on your summer to-do list. 


  1. I’m looking for a recipe for a rhubarb pie with a sour cream topping. My Grandma used to make it and she called it a Bavarian style rhubarb pie. Any ideas where I can find a recipe like this?
