When I was in high school, my best friend's mother baked mini apple pies every Christmas. I was thrilled when she shared the recipe with me—it made me feel like I was finally an adult! —Katie Ferrier Gage, Houston, Texas
I make this family favorite every year for a gathering at my sister's, where the recipe is known as "Uncle Mike's pie." I use only fresh berries, apples and rhubarb that I grow myself. —Michael Powers, New Baltimore, Virginia
"I combined two of my favorite recipes to come up with this sensational pie. It won the local apple pie contest a few years ago. I usually make two pies because we always end up wanting more."

These are a really good change from apple pie since they are glazed and a little bit sweeter. The dough is firm enough that you can eat them with your hands and are best when apples are in season. —Diane Turner, Brunswick, Ohio
You'll think Grandma was baking in the kitchen when you taste your first bite of this old-fashioned pie. The golden, tender crust holds a yummy apple filling with a hint of orange.—Drew Menne, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts
