Summer Pie (Heidi Schmitt)

For the Crust, Preheat oven 400F. Crush graham crackers in Cuisinart (or put in stout plastic bag and beat with a rolling pin). Mix crumbs, sugar, butter. Press mixture into pie pan. Bake 8-10 mins at 400F. Let cool. For the Topping, Crush fruits (except leave raspberries whole) and boil with water and sugar until thick. Cool. For the Filling, Blend cheeses, sugar, half-and-half, and vanilla until smooth using Cuisinart blade. Then fold into the whipped cream and Cool Whip.
Fill cooled crust with cheese mixture. Refrigerate. Serve pie with the fruit mixture drizzled on top of each piece.

Pecan Pie -- Old Joy Of Cooking

Make pie shell.

Stir together the chilled flour and salt and shredded frozen butter. Then add in water by the tablespoon until the dough becomes a shaggy mass. Divide dough in 2. Quickly form each part into a 1-inch thick disc. Wrap in 2 layers of plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours to 3 days. Or, put 2nd disk into ziploc bag and freeze for a future pie. Preheat oven to 450F. After 2 hours of chilling, dough can be rolled out and fit to your pie plate. Partially bake the pie shell, 5-7 minutes.

Cherry or Berry Custard Pie

Use a graham cracker or baked standard pie crust. Put unsweetened pie cherries or berries in the crust. Pour on the custard. Bake at 350-425 about 35-50 mins until knife comes out clean.
