When the weather starts getting a little cooler and the leaves start falling, what better way to welcome in fall than with a homemade apple pie? This version, from Karen Gavureau of Clearwater, Florida, calls for apples, pears and raisins flavored with rum extract. "This pie is a sure way to a man's heart," attests Karen.
No one can resist a slice (or two!) of this tart "cherry-berry" pie. Growing up, my sister and I requested this pie for our birthdays instead of cake. Now it's a favorite of my own family.
