What kind of pie would you like to eat?

Poll #871801 Pie, anyone?

Choose the pie you'd most like to eat for Thanksgiving (if you're not celebrating Thanksgiving, then just in general)

apple pie
8(38.1%)
pecan pie
5(23.8%)
pumpkin pie
3(14.3%)
other (please describe!)
3(14.3%)
not a big pie fan (please a warm dessert you like)
1(4.8%)


Um, please forgive the fractured English in the last choice--it should say, "please describe a warm dessert etc."

If you feel like sharing recipes, please do! I myself love all three. I get my recipe for pecan pie off the karo syrup container (SO professional! SO traditional!) and the other two out of The Joy of Cooking

I love this Iranian pop music.

Okay, back to this entrancing document on private equity...

Pumpkin pie always wins, but who can forget the queen to pumpkin's king, rhubarb?

Oh it's true! I love rhubarb pie too :-) (no userpic featuring rhubarb, so strawberries will have to do...)

my favorite pie is apple , then blueberry and then pumpkin, but the only time I see Pecan is at Thanksgiving so that's why I picked it.

Do you haev Tastykake's up there?

It's a cake bakery like hostess I guess but much better. They're pies are great and in individual sizes. Krimpets, Peanut Butter Tandykakes..etc

I see you can order on line ...for a long time they would only sell in the Phila Area....

A vote for apple because it seemed lonesome and I have no national obligation to support it ;-)
But the more the merrier -- pecan, pumpkin, apple, (blackberry & apple, rhubarb, gooseberry, etc., feel out of place at Thanksgiving to me because they remind me of England--but maybe that would be good?) Can I have one slice of each, please?

I am working on a spell--it's a time multiplier. With it, I am going to multiply time and make lots and lots of pies! Pies for all! (And I'll also use it to do lots of other things, as you can imagine.

Actually, per sartorias's distinction between science and magic, perhaps this will be a scientific invention. And it will be open source, and I'll post it on the web for all to use.

But no, it will be magic, because if anyone tries to use it to compel extra labor from people, they will be SMITTEN by some painful and swift punishment.

Re: Pies
No kidding! Well, now I know what I can bring if (a) you respond in the affirmative to the e-mail I sent you and (b)... if I get that magic spell perfected and get the time to bake!

Definitely delicious! Didn't think of it because mincepie=Christmas in my head. Do you make your own for Thanksgiving?

it's always a tough call because I'm the only person I know who likes mincemeat, so it means i have to consume the entire pie....

Its a tough call between apple and pumpkin!

Did you know that some expert on Oprah identified the scent of pumkin pie as one of the most sexually alluring scents on earth ( to men)? That and lavender. Anyway, I bet putting a hot pumkin pie on the windowsill will bring the boys to the yard! hehe.

hahaha! Maybe I'll try a pumpkin and lavender pie! (I do have a recipe for lavender shortbread...)

Strawberry Pie..Yumm..Had it just once a long time ago, and still hankering for it..
Was originally thinking on the lines of "American Pie", but since this seemed a serious poll, I posted this..Hmm..Warm apple pie..LOL

Strawberries for you, then :-)

American Pie is a great song--l learned all the lyrics when I was like nine!

Hey Asaki - you might like this - almond eggnog type of thing but w/out eggs!

Soak 25 almonds in water. Microwave for 2-3 min. The skin should peel off very easily now.
Add a little milk to the almonds and blend it to a fine paste.

Heat about 2 cups of milk and add this paste and stir it every 5-6 min on medium flame for about 20 min or so.
Add sugar equal to the amount of paste or slightly less than that if you don't like it sweet.
Add cardomom powder and a few saffron flowers (5)while cooking the milk.

I make this often but dont' ever measure stuff - so am finding it hard to give the exact amounts - will look it up and email you later.

Mmm, Wondernoon, this sounds great! I love the flavor of cardamom and I love almonds, so I just know this will be delicious. And I got your follow-up e-mail (will reply soon...), so I can share with everyone the recipe you shared with me!

Everyone, it's at this site!

Thanks for the recipe for scones! Will try it maybe tomorrow ♥

So... this is the recipe from the Karo syrup container (Karo syrup is a brand of corn syrup--you can use any corn syrup... don't use molasses, though; it will change the taste, and you'd need slightly different proportions, I'm told...)

ingredients:

1 cup corn syrup
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup pecans
1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie crust

the directions are very easy:

Stir the first five ingredients together, then mix in the pecans. Pour into the pie crust, and bake in an oven that's been preheated to 350F/177C for 50-55 minutes.

Mincemeat Pie. Hands down, no competition.

Pecan Pie is for those dirty rebs that live below the M/D line anyway...

Well, mincemeat is very nostalgic because it reminds me of England but... I LOVE pecan pie! It's sooo sweet... mmmm

But I love the other pies, too :-)

I looooooooooooooove Apple Pie..Do u know its recipe?
asakiyume
Nov. 21st, 2006 11:46 am (UTC)
Oh, there are lots of recipes! I will post one here from The Joy of Cooking, but there are lots of variations.

The most important thing is to get apples with really great, strong flavors. Sometimes dessert apples that you eat are not the best for pies--they may get mushy, or their flavor may be too sweet or delicate for a pie.

Anyway, I will post another reply later today w/ an apple pie recipe!

Ok..Thank u..
But we dont get good apples in this part of the world.After i read ur post about the pie,i was running around in office telling everyone that i want a pie..

Oh, I wish I could send you some! (I think it's really hard to send live fruits and vegetables to other countries, though...) Or, I wish I knew someone here who was visiting the part of India you live in, and they could bring you some.

The difference between good apples and bad apples--it's everything. I think of that when I eat the mangos in our supermarket... I think, these are probably just the very worst; if I lived in a warm climate, I could taste the good ones...

Come to northeastern United States in autumn, September through December--that's when the apples are the best! I'll make you a pie :-)
