Chocolate Pecan Pies

1 ½ cups regular, non-salted butter (3 sticks or 12 ounces)
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups sugar
1 ½ cups liquid eggs
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
1 ½ cups coconut
2, 9-inch pie shells

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place all ingredients in saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.  Stir and heat until butter is melted and mixture is warm, being careful not to let mixture burn.  Divide evenly between the two pie shells.   Place pies on a baking sheet and place in the oven.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes.  Pies will be very soft in the middle.


Deep Dish Apple-Cranberry Pie

1 whole piece of puff pastry, cut in half
2 ¼ cups sugar, divided
¾ cup flour
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
8 cups canned apples with juice
1 cup fresh cranberries
1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp. water to make an egg glaze

Spray 9x13 pan with non-stick coating.  Line bottom of pan with one piece of pie pastry.  In a large bowl, combine:  2 cups sugar, ¾ cup flour, and 2 tsp. pumpkin spice.  Add apples with juice and cranberries.  Place apple mixture in pastry-lined pan.  Use a cookie cutter to cut out designs in second piece of pastry.  Top apples with second piece of pastry and decorate with cutouts.  Use a pastry brush to brush egg glaze on top of pastry.  Sprinkle top with ¼ cup sugar.  Place pie on baking sheet and bake 50 minutes to one hour at 375 degrees.


Sweet Braided Bread

Cream Cheese Filling:
8 oz. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar

Beat together and place on center of dough.  Top with ¼ cup raspberry jam and ¼ cup chocolate chips if desired. 

Braid bread and brush with egg glaze (1 egg + 1 tbsp. water).

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
