Cherry pie
Apple pie
Blueberry pie

My oldest DD isn't a pie eater.
My youngest DD can eat an entire pumpkin pie herself, which is fine with me. I'm already burned out on it.

My H doesn't bother with the pastry....he eats mincemeat from the jar by the spoonful!

Our family isn't into pie for dessert at Thanksgiving, so much as cake!
I make carrot cake.
We enjoyed it at our Thanksgiving last month.....and it has been requested by my BIL for Christmas Day!

@ Lyonesse:

The mincemeat my H eats is the fruit one.
It's made with apples, raisins or currants, suet, sugar, and spices like cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Adding brandy or rum gives it a rather tart taste

Mincemeat gets its name from the way the ingredients are finely chopped, or minced.

..PIE???? did someone say PIE??

I LOVE PIE.. any kind of PIE, usually with ice cream on top and whipped cream if I've got it.

strawberry/rhubarb is a favorite, but any fruit pie is OK with me.. I could live on Pie

..Pie for breakfast, pie for lunch, pie for dinner... and for dessert..more pie

bedtime snack?? pie of course!

pie never lasts long in my house.. my wife doesn't bother with it, maybe a sliver of cherry once in a blue moon, so I get to pig out on the whole thing!!

did I mention "I LOVE PIE" ????

smy.... rhymes with PIE!

Man, I love pie. But, for Thanksgiving, pumpkin and pecan - in that order. Both with fresh whipped cream. Any other time of the year, I'll eat almost any pie (except a meringue - which I will eat as long as I can scrape the meringue off).

LMAO! Somanyyears, this is how I also feel about pie. Pumpkin pie for breakfast is completely acceptable.

I really like Sour cream apple pie (with a strudel topping), lemon (fuck that meringue shit. I'm with musiclovingmom on that one), and rhubarb.

But really, all pie is amazing. We are French-Canadian, and my dad has recently shared his recipe for tourtiere with me. I swear, it is the best meat pie I've ever tasted. My dad makes a mean pie. Love my dad.

ps: can someone tel me what smy means? Google is not helping. Thx. I found out that it could mean "suck my yonker", but that doesn't rhyme with pie... ... ..

Pumpkin, please! I prefer one-crust pies anyway, if I must eat pie. (SMY can have my share.) It's the filling I like, not the crust. I like to make them and am told I do a great job, but I'm happy for it to stop there most of the time.

At our Thanksgiving table have three pies, each made by a different person: pumpkin, apple and almost everyone's favorite, chocolate made from scratch.

I'm intrigued by TIKY's pumpkin-pecan pie, though! I was recently at a place where they served pie that was apple on the bottom and pumpkin on top. Two of the people with me tried it and declared it was awesome.

Tonight I’ll be making blueberry and for Christmas mincemeat with a cornmeal crust. Yes it has real meat so 2-3 days before I make the pie I’ll be having roast for dinner. Need to save the suet and leftover.

I love pecan pie if the baker is generous with pecans. I've found that pecan pies purchased often seem to be mostly Karo syrup with just a layer of pecans on top. Yech!

For Thanksgiving, I traditionally do pumpkin and dutch apple. The reason for dutch apple is that I hate making crusts, and the Pillsbury crusts come two to a pkg - so I need a second one crust pie to go with the pumpkin.

If pumpkin pie is your favorite, there’s a good chance you’re incredibly good looking. Scientists have yet to figure out why, but attractive people tend to gravitate toward pumpkin. People are walking by you asking, “Who is that person shoving pumpkin pie into their mouth? Cuz daaaaaaaayumn they look good.”

Yeah, This happens to me all the time.

All of this blasphemous talk needs to end NOW. For Thanksgiving, there is only apple and pumpkin pie. Serving any other pie on Thanksgiving is just another plot by the anarchists meant to undermine the fabric of 'Merican society and will lead to further subversion by the Tofurkeyites.

IMNSHO, there is no better smell in the world than when I am baking one of my Mom's Brown Paper Sack Apple Pies. The power of the scent takes me back to when my Mom was baking the ten pies for the extended family gathering, my Dad was watching a football game and all was right and safe with the world.
