Shepherd's Pie

The epitome of winter comfort food, Shepherd's Pie layers a meat and vegetable filling with a mashed potato topping before baking it together until perfection is reached. Opt for a mixture of Russet and sweet potatoes to add a little color to the coldest part of the year.

Apple Pearberry Turnovers

As we dive into a bevy of winter holidays, savor those cool mornings by the tree, fireplace, or table with the season's perfect pastry. Brimming with apples, pears, and cranberries, the tender, flaky pastry holds a fruity center swimming in homemade caramel sauce!
