Two pies in One pie pan Experiment Results

Here’s my double pie straight out of the oven. Isn’t it pretty?!?

I know everyone is wondering what happened last night after the double pie went into the oven. I ended up baking the double pie for about an hour. The crust that was folded over in the middle didn’t quite bake all the way through, but when I make the pie for the contest, it obviously won’t have that problem.

I let them cool for about 2 hours before cutting into them. Hubby got home from work REALLY late and we had a small piece to try them out. I was glad to see that both pies were baked through.

The pear and cranberry pie was tasted first. The baked pears were delicious but we both thought the cranberries were too tart. The bites without cranberry were heavenly though. I would definitely make this again with maybe dried cranberries or cooked cranberries? Any suggestions? Katie – did I do something wrong? I could still use this recipe for the contest if I needed to, but it would need some work…

Next came the squash pie. OH my goodness this was very good. Very unique and creative. I don’t really know how to describe it. Except imagine a pie that’s made by heating up some butternut squash, then adding some pears, dried cranberries, walnuts, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. After the sugar melts, you stir it all up. The sugar makes this amazing gooey glaze over everything else. Like I said before, I wanted to eat the filling with a spoon. It’s a very good, unexpected fall pie.

So as you may have guess, we both voted for the squash pie. We’re taking the rest of the double pie over to our friend’s house tomorrow so we’ll get their votes too. I’ll also see how the pies hold up over night since I’ll be baking them Sunday night and the contest is Monday at 1:00. And yes, I did consider staying home from work Monday morning to bake, but I thought that would be a bit extreme…

    Wow, that sounds amazing. I’m a fan of snickerdoodles, not a huge fan of ice cream (I can take it or leave it) but this one sounds right up my alley!

    I had a feeling you’d be making ice cream with the leftover cookies! Can you please send some my way? 🙂

      Ha! Sorry for being so predictable 😉 Believe me, I wish there was still some leftover in our freezer right now. I might just have to cave and make this again for my sister this weekend…

    Might be the best use of leftover frozen cookies I’ve ever seen. Yum!
