One of my favorite things to make in the fall is shepard's pie. Traditionally made with lamb (hence the name) Karina of Gluten-Free Goddess shakes things up and makes gluten-free pies two ways: one with tofu and one with chicken. Both were topped with creamy potatoes and filled with tasty, nontraditional ingredients like broccoli, artichoke hearts and zucchini instead of the usual carrots and peas. I also love the pot-pie inspired sauce, it sounds so creamy and perfect for a new kind of shepard's pie.

I love this pie by Angry Asian Creations because it is a true season bender. We have summery blueberries and a wintery orange and pecan crust meeting together in a pie that I think would be perfect for fall. The crispy oat topping is just the perfect autumnal touch.
Blueberries are on their way out but still readily available or you can use defrosted frozen berries. I know I always freeze berries at their peak for just such a pie emergency. A wonderful way to bring the summer back to life.

This is one of my favorite pie recipes! My grandpop loved Stayman Winesap apples and apple pie. I created this recipe to share with him. What sets it apart from the rest is the cheddar-black pepper crust but even in a regular crust, this pie would be a winner!
