Besides giving us a break from the summer heat, the best things about fall are hayrides, picking apples from the local orchard and selecting pumpkins from the field. These autumn activities often lead to making apple butter, apple cakes and (best of all) apple pies! Roasted pumpkin seeds make for a great seasonal snack and there's nothing better than a fresh pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving turkey.

Pie is usually described as any baked dish made from pastry or biscuit dough that contains a filling of sweet or savory ingredients. Sweet fillings make apple pies, pecan pies and chocolate cream pies. Savory pies include chicken pot pies, ricotta pies, quiches and tourtières. No matter your preference, everyone agrees that pies are simply delicious. Check out these yummy reads to find a new recipe perfect for sharing with loved ones.
