Stone Fruit Pie

This recipe was developed by Border Grill chef Mary Sue Milliken, who says, "At my restaurant, I use pastry flour for pie crusts, but I commonly find myself without at home, so here I've substituted all-purpose flour and cornstarch to achieve the same crispy tenderness. I love freezing fruit at its peak--sliced, sugared, and juicy, with tapioca added--so that a blast of summer is at my fingertips in the dead of winter."

Shaker Rhubarb Pie

When harvesting garden rhubarb, choose tender, young shoots, discard the rhubarb leaves—which are toxic—and peel any large, tough stems as you would with celery. Commercially grown rhubarb doesn't need peeling; buy only firm, crisp stalks, and store them in the refrigerator. See the recipe for Shaker Rhubarb Pie »Christopher Hirsheimer
