My favorites were always any pie that mom made with vanilla ice cream. Peach and blackberry being two of them that stood out.

My guess would be that it was good old fashioned lard pie crust.
That is a tradition that I should try to revive.

Strawberries cut with sugar added and left in the fridge a little while made a nice treat alone or as a topping on vanalia ice cream along pumpkin pie and black cows (Root bear float but with coke) were my favorites from my grand parents.

Dutch oven peach cobbler and homemade ice cream were some favorites from camping when in scouts. Once the the duch oven got dropped and spilling a large amount of cobbler on the ground. I believe that's the first time I ate off the ground leaving that directly touching the ground there but scraped the stuff on the top onto my mess kit. Only one other scout saw the advantage to my approach.

Danny,
My grandma then my mom and now my wife does something VERY similar. They roll out the leftover pie dough, put butter, sugar and cinnamon on it then roll it up jelly roll style and cut rings off about 3/4" thick. Then bake 'em until golden brown. We call them Screwnoodles. Anytime ANY pie gets made Screwnoodles are a must!

^^ sounds similar to how my wife makes cinnamon rolls but with home made dough instead of pie crust. She cuts them with dental floss . A knife makes them flat.

My mom wasn't much of a fancy baker, one of my favorites was when a 9x13 cake (Betty Crocker box) started to dry out a bit. We'd put a piece in a bowl and pour milk in. Let the cake get soggy and eat it with a spoon.

Kind of a neat story about my love for orange drop cookies. 40+ years ago there was a lady that always baked orange drop cookies for our vacation bible school when I was a kid. I loved those things and she definitely held the title for the best orange drop cookies.

Fast forward to about 6 months ago, I stop by my moms house and she had two orange drop cookies in small container that my grandmother had gave to my mom for me. I poured a glass of milk and devoured them. They rivaled those I had eaten at VBS 40+ years ago.

I asked my mom if grandma had made them. She replied “no, Shirley made them” Shirley is the lady that made the cookies for VBS 40 years ago and my grandmother had hired her to clean her house a day each week. After I told my mom and grandma of the story of the original cookies that Shirley had made years ago for VBS years ago, they told the same story to Shirley and I have had monthly orange drop cookies from Shirley ever since.

A smart man would be securing that recipe while Shirley is still alive....a smarter man would be sharing the recipe with the rest of us smile
