Apples Ripe for Baking

Some apple varieties are just made for pie baking; those with a firm texture and that hold their form under heat are best.

Pillsbury test kitchen experts cite Golden Delicious apples as particularly suited for use in pies.

Other favorites include Cameo, Cortland, Granny Smith, Idared, Jonathan, Newtown Pippin, Pink Lady and Rome Beauty.

Ask the staff at your local orchard, farmers market or grocery store which types they recommend for pies.

Legendary Recipes from Virginia's Queen of Pie Mrs. Rowe, known fondly as "the Pie Lady" by legions of loyal customers, was the quintessential purveyor of all-American comfort food.

Today her family carries on this legacy at the original Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant and Bakery in Staunton, Virginia, as well as at the new country buffet.

The restaurant's bustling take-out counter sells a staggering 100 handmade pies every day!

With the pies being snapped up that quickly, it's no wonder that Mrs. Rowe urged her customers to order dessert first.

In Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies, recipes for Southern classics like Key Lime Pie and Pecan Fudge Pie sit alongside restaurant favorites like French Apple Pie and Original Coconut Cream Pie.

Additional recipes gathered from family notebooks and recipe boxes include regional gems like Shoofly Pie and Lemon Chess Pie.

With berries and custards and fudge--oh my!--plus a variety of delectable crusts and toppings, this mouthwatering collection offers a little slice of Southern hospitality that will satisfy every type of sweet tooth--and convince even city slickers to take the time to smell the Fresh Peach Pie.
