We’ve been talking a lot about pies this week, and we baked one yesterday that reminded us why a good pie is a mouthstopper of a treat. We can’t take much credit for it, though; it involved very few ingredients and was mostly about the fruit. Sweet, jammy blackberries, fall apples, and spicy sugared ginger, loaded into one of those vodka pie crusts. (Have we mentioned how much we like pie for breakfast?)

We’ll share the recipe with you on Saturday as a weekend treat, but until then, here are a few more ideas for good cooking and good eating from The Kitchn.
