QOTD 11/07: PIE!

Postby Chef Mongo » Wed Nov 07, 2012 11:00 am

What pies are you making for Thanksgiving or throughout the holidays?

What's ONE pie you'd like to make, but you've never tried/been scared to try it?

What's your favorite?

Wait, you mean you guys don't have a big coordinating meeting every morning to decide who'll post the QOTD? What kind of show are we running here, anyway? :P

Since there are only 3 of us, I usually bake 2 pies. I switch up the flavors each year so it doesn't get redundant.
Last year I made my first Chess Pie...I had forgotten how cloyingly sweet it was. Used to be my childhood favorite.
I also made sweet potato pie, which turned out very good.

This year it will be dutch caramel apple, and traditional pumpkin.

Last time I TRIED to bake pies... TOTAL fails and with frozen, premade crusts?? Was making coconut custard... EASY recipe that I'd done before. But that time the egg/milk/coconut mixture somehow seeped UNDER the crust and made a total mass of things.

Former neighbor would make a blueberry pie (when berries were in season here in NJ) that was fabulous. My grandmother would make lemon meringue... almost every time the filling would just run out when cut... but tasted great!?!

Most likely will not be making pies because my fat self needs them not, but if I were mincemeat and apple and pumpkin would be on the list.

Can't say that there is a pie that I am scared to try but have never made butterschotch pie and so that will have to be the answer for this question.

Favorite? Rhubarb. I do not like being in an area where it does not grow. Paid a king's ransom for some at the grocery a while back and still resent it.

My son makes a pumpkin pie each year for Thanksgiving. I might make an apple pie but we don't usually get through one pie, much less two. I may save that for later.
I've never made a pecan pie. Partly because my son is allergic and partly because I've heard so many horror stories about it.
My favorite pie is probably black bottom pie but I'm with Wanda, I'd rather have cake. :D

Not a big pie fan, I can probably count on one hand the number I have made in my life. I am making a trifle this year.

Pumpkin pie - ick. My mom usually makes a pecan pie too which is ok. I just don't eat the crust.

OH, Bean Pie!

It's sorta good. A lot like sweet potato, but a bit more bland. Tweaking the spices may be the trick.

Pie! I like pie!

Oh gosh, you had me at PIE. :D

Don't know yet what I'll make, I may not be home for T-Day. But if I am pumpkin is a must.

I don't play favorites with pie, they are all equally appreciated and loved. key lime.

There is no pie that I fear to make, though some are simpler and easier than others.

Norm, you owe it to yourself.

Get some of those Crisco sticks and use the crust recipe from there. Cold and not overhandling are your friends, also a decent amout of flour to roll it out.

The Libby's pumpkin can has a good filling recipe that amounts to dump and stir.

You will be so proud of yourself and you should be, because pie is good!

Oh, I've made pumpkin pie with canned filling and frozen crust. Ate it with friends in jr. "high," all of us with forks around the pan. Eh. I'm not a pie person either, even good ones. I like the filling, but nibble at the crust.

I like two kinds of pie. Derby pie and key lime pie.

I like French apple tart.

Otherwise, I like cake. Birthday Cake.

I'll probably make a big 'ol mess of pies this year. I am going to two Thanksgivings! The list of probably pies includes:
Coconut Cream Pie, my absolute favorite!
Apple pie, with crumb topping, which is my apple crisp topping
Pumpkin Cheesecake, which I think counts as pie :)

I'm stoked! As I don't eat much of the Thanksgiving food because I am just not a huge fan of it, I'll be saving a lot of room for dessert!

Hey, Lucy — would you please share your recipe for coconut cream pie?

Not to push, but Norm, after you have a pie crust or two as experience, you might want to consider making a big ol' beefy meat pie. Having had this idea, I should get to work on it myself.

I don't care how cheap@$$ semi-ho it is, this is my favorite pie ever:

No-Bake Frozen Pumpkin Pie

As far as a pie that intimidates me? I can't think of one, though the first and only time I made a pecan pie was a nightmare - it tasted fantastic, but it pretty much glued itself to the pie pan.

I second the request for the coconut cream pie. That's probably the pie I would like to attempt but haven't.

There's always a pumpkin pie on the table. Since we have people over who come from all over the country, there have to be some constants on the table - whether it's pumpkin pie or green bean casserole so that there's a sense of "tradition" to the meal. I think the worst thing you can do at Thanksgiving is not offer up some traditional dishes - especially for folks who couldn't afford/didn't want to go home for the long weekend.

I can vouch for a sugar-free version of this one! :) SF pudding mix and SF Cool Whip. But you don't want to freeze the SF version, because it becomes very icy. I used mini phyllo cups, but can see the "filling" working equally well in a trifle or parfait, or between sheets of puff pastry in the style of a napoleon.
