This is the only apple pie my husband will eat, but that's all right since he makes it as often as I do. Like a combination of apple and pecan pie, it's a sweet treat that usually tops off our holiday meals from New Year's all the way through to Christmas!

Here's a delicious idea from Janet Morgan-Cavallaro of Pincourt, Quebec—an old-fashioned apple dessert she enhanced with cranberries. "After I went apple picking with our daughter," she recalls. "I took a look at the bushels of fruit we brought home—then raced into our kitchen to try out new ideas, including my pie."—Janet Morgan-Cavallaro, Pincourt, Quebec
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
This hearty and decadent apple pie serves up homemade flavor in every bite. The blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flours offers more fiber and less fat than traditional pie crust. This is perfect with coffee or as an after dinner treat. —Sarah Klier, Grand Rapids, Michigan
"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."

This special pie is destined to become a family tradition! The apple and pineapple are mouthwatering together, and the crunchy topping is fabulous! This one’s best served warm. —Karen Brink, Atwater, Ohio
