Ok, someone has to send me a receipe for a savory pie. DH loves those little frozen pot pies, but I've never thought of trying to make one from scratch, and wouldn't know how to begin. If anyone has a good receipe, pm me and I'll send you my email.

Pecan pie is my first choice. I never ate any until a few years ago, and now it is my favorite.

OK...I have to brag just a little bit here. My grandmother was raised in an Amish community and was a prize-winning pie baker in Iowa. She taught me how to make pies. I make GREAT pies. My favorite pies tend to be my own, because, of course, I make them to my taste. (I tend to lean toward Carol's preferences...I don't like fruit pies to be overly sweet.) My very favorite is maple pecan pie (if I can brag a bit more, I make the BEST pecan pie) and crumb-topped apple pie.

My grandmother's recipe for apple pie. I tried to make a pie as good for years, and mostly blamed my crust for not being as good. Then, last year, we found the same apple she always used (she had two of this variety of apple trees up in the upper pasture), Northern Spy and tah dah! I finally had a pie that tasted like hers (still isn't quite as good, maybe 95% there)

Favorite cake...hmm...I have 3. Florentine Bakery of Utica - their cafe cake, a good white cake with custard in the middle (not vanilla pastry cream, real custard), and Paula Dean's Is it really better than sex cake

This thread has the line "Pie, pie, I love pie" from the movie Michael running through my head

I don't have a fave - have yet to meet a pie I don't like I do remember my mother's gooseberry pie fondly.

You sound like my father. He's a pie fan, too. Gooseberry is his favorite as well. I didn't think I'd ever run into anyone who had ever heard of gooseberry. Most people just give you a funny look. (I have to special order cans of gooseberries every time I want to make a pie for him.)

For those of you who've never heard of it...gooseberries are small, tart, green berries. Gooseberry pie tastes quite a bit like rhubarb pie...except maybe a bit tarter.

Oh I know about gooseberries! My Gram had a gooseberry bush in the close lower pasture that was just across the road from her house. She had a 110 acre farm that some portions of went up both sides of a valley.

Yes, the only time I have had gooseberry is when we lived in South Dakota. Had a bush growing wild in the backyard

Favorite pie is cherry, but it has to be served hot.

Favorite cake is chocolate.

Hate, hate, hate anything with coconut or raisins.

Alright, since you are going to hold my feet to the fire on this one, I'll go with apple crisp. Raisin pie is a close second. Now I'm hungry.
