Oh, dear. This was tough. Why? Because my mom rarely made the same dessert twice. I was the primary cookie baker, and I went through a phase where I made chocolate pudding on a regular basis. But I wouldn’t call those “family favorites.” We had ONE family favorite, and that was flan. And I like flan plain – I did not like the thought of putting it in a crust. The only other thing that my mom made on a regular basis (when we had a peach tree) was peach pie and peach ice cream.
The peaches in the store are pretty bad right now. So I made one of my current family favorites: blueberry pie. I used scraps of leftover dough to make the lattice, and that’s why it looks so awful, but I’m not about to waste good, butter-laden pastry crust.
