2. Transparent Pie

Hold onto your hat because this Autumn pie recipes one that you’ve never heard of and is going to knock your socks off. The directions are a little bit lengthy but it’s worth it in the end! 

Ingredients:

Single-Crust Pie Pastry

Sugared cranberries:

1 1/2 cups water

2 3/4 cups granulated sugar, divided

2 cups fresh cranberries (about 8 oz.)

Créme fraÎche:

2 (8-oz.) containers crème fraîche

6 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Filling:

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

4 teaspoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

3 large eggs

1/2 cup half-and-half or evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:

Prepare the Sugared Cranberries: Stir together water and 1 3/4 cups of the sugar in a medium saucepan. Place over medium, and bring to a simmer, stirring often until sugar dissolves. Continue simmering sugar syrup, without letting it boil, until it thickens slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool until warm, about 5 minutes. (If cranberries are combined with the sugar syrup when it is too hot, they may burst from the heat.) Combine fresh cranberries and warm sugar syrup in a large bowl. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Cover bowl, and chill 8 hours or overnight. Sprinkle a rimmed baking sheet with 1/2 cup of the sugar. Pour chilled cranberry mixture through a wire-mesh strainer over a bowl. (Reserve cranberry syrup in bowl for another use.) Spread cranberries in a single layer on sugar on baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Gently shake baking sheet, making sure cranberries are evenly coated with sugar. Let stand, uncovered, until cranberries are dry and crisp, about 2 hours. Shake off any excess sugar on cranberries, and place in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 2 days. Prepare the Crust: Preheat oven to 375°F. Unwrap chilled pie dough disk from Single-Crust Pie Pastry, and place on a lightly floured surface. Let stand at room temperature until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle dough with flour, and roll into a 12-inch circle. Carefully fit dough circle into a 9-inch glass pie plate; fold edges under, and crimp. Line pastry with parchment paper, and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes. Transfer crust to a wire rack; remove pie weights and parchment, and let crust cool, about 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Prepare the Filling: Whisk together sugar, flour, and salt in a large bowl. Add melted butter to flour mixture, stirring with a fork until mixture is combined and resembles damp sand. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl until well beaten. Add half-and-half and vanilla, and whisk until well combined. Pour egg mixture over sugar-butter mixture, and whisk to combine into a smooth, thick, creamy yellow filling. Pour into prepared piecrust. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Bake until edges puff up and center is fairly firm, wiggling only slightly when you gently nudge pie plate, about 35 minutes. Transfer pie to a wire rack, and cool to room temperature, about 2 hours. Prepare the Whipped Crème Fraîche: Beat crème fraîche with an electric mixer in a large bowl on medium-high speed until soft and lightened in texture, about 2 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla, and beat until smooth, fluffy, and well combined, about 2 minutes. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Top pie with Whipped Crème Fraîche and Sugared Cranberries.

5. Strawberry Lemon Frozen Pie with Gingersnap Crust

You might be wondering what a strawberry pie is doing on an autumn pie recipes list but rest assured, this pie can be enjoyed year round. Also, we figure the gingersnap crust makes up for the summer-y ingredients.

1 tablespoon loosely packed lemon zest

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup strawberry jam

3 large egg yolks

1/4 cup buttermilk

Gingersnap Crust, baked

Vegetable cooking spray

3 tablespoons strawberry jam

16 ounces sliced strawberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°. Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Beat egg yolks with a handheld mixer in a medium bowl at high speed 4 to 5 minutes or until yolks become pale and ribbons form on surface of mixture when beater is lifted. Gradually whisk in sweetened condensed milk mixture, and whisk until thoroughly combined; whisk in buttermilk. Pour mixture into prepared crust. Bake at 325° for 20 to 25 minutes or until set around edges. (Pie will be slightly jiggly.) Cool on a wire rack 1 hour. Cover pie with lightly greased (with cooking spray) plastic wrap, and freeze 4 to 6 hours. Microwave 3 Tbsp. strawberry jam in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 20 seconds. Stir sliced strawberries into jam. Top pie with strawberry mixture just before serving.

6. Samoa Pie

Samoa’s are arguably one of the best girl scout cookies ever! We thought we’d add it to this list of Autumn pie recipes because of it’s tasty goodness and because autumn is around the time girl scouts start getting whatever money is left in our wallets.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 oz.) all-purpose flour

2 1/2 cups half-and-half

4 large egg yolks

3 cups sweetened shredded coconut, divided

9 tablespoons (4 1/2 oz.) salted butter, divided

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 (7.5-oz.) pkg. Samoas or Caramel deLites Girl Scout cookies, frozen

1 cup heavy cream plus 2 tablespoons, divided

1 cup caramel candies (about 6 oz.)

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (about 3 oz.), melted

Directions:
Whisk together sugar and flour in a medium saucepan. Whisk together half-and-half and egg yolks in a bowl; whisk into sugar mixture. Cook over medium, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens and starts to bubble, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 1 1/2 cups of the coconut and 3 tablespoons of the butter; stir in vanilla. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on warm custard to prevent a film from forming; chill 4 to 24 hours. Process cookies in a food processor until very finely chopped, about 1 minute. Add remaining 6 tablespoons butter; pulse until combined, about 5 times. Press mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Chill at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Beat 1 cup of the heavy cream with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold into chilled coconut custard. Spoon into prepared pie shell, and smooth top. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread remaining 1 1/2 cups coconut on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes, stirring twice during bake time. Set aside. Microwave caramel candies and remaining 2 tablespoons heavy cream in a medium-size microwavable bowl on HIGH until melted, about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Top pie with toasted coconut around the edges (leaving center open), and drizzle with melted caramel and chocolate. Chill at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
