    UO I don't like pie or cheesecake. Occasionally I will eat a slice of French silk pie but I need like half a gallon of milk to go with it. Cheesecake only if very thick Graham cracker crust and very little cheese stuff.

    Mmmm to pie...especially Dutch apple pie or apple crisp. Definitely my favorite thing to make after a trip to the cider mill!

    Anyone ever had (or even heard of) Flapper Pie? It’s a pretty old school prairie-specific pie, and it’s my dad’s specialty.

    UO I dislike pie.

    The only pie worth eating is Key Lime Pie. Mmmmm

    @jennybean80 I’m intrigued by Flapper pie, what is it?? 

    I want all things Fall right now. Pumpkin pie, crisp fall air, and I just spent 30 minutes looking at mulled wine recipes to make for when we decorate or Christmas tree!

    @cagncoo12 It’s a vanilla custard pie with meringue, on a graham crust. Apparently it’s a Canadian thing.

    I feel like I’m dropping. Is that normal?

    On a side note, Summer is killing me and I’m ready to chop off my hair.

    @knottieamusements THANK YOU! I'm thinking we will do pumpkin first because DD can probably help with that. Then apple. Maybe I will just buy myself a cherry pie instead of even attempting to make one. Lol

    @chyvie , LOL when my husband would travel for work I would sneak out and buy a french silk pie and eat the whole thing while he was gone.  no regrets!!  haha

    So I've only ever made pumpkin and apple pies but I *just* discovered a cherry pitter since my oldest son is apparently obsessed with cherries lately (holy cow is that the best kitchen tool ever!!) and now i'm thinking maybe I need to try my hand at cherry pie.  I personally don't care for fruit pies (only pumpkin and french silk for me), but I know my husband would love it.  anyone know if there are specific cherries needed for cherry pie?

    @acciocoffee - Don’t get me wrong- a cherry pie is totally doable- just more work.  And harder to find a decent recipe.  (I’d offer one but there may have been some burning of recipe cards when I got divorced...) My experience is that if the recipe doesn’t require you to cook  the filling to make the syrup, it’s not going to be very good.  Also- there is a difference between fresh cherries, canned cherries, and canned cherry pie filling.  :)

    Apple and pumpkin don’t require any cooking, just mix the ingredients together, dump them in the crust, and bake.  And I still thoroughly enjoy making these two!

    French silk pie was the last thing I ate before having my daughter lol
    I LOVE making apple pie from scratch but I learned to make it when I had an apple tree in my backyard and it feels wrong to go to the store and buy a bag of apples to make an apple pie when the price of the apples cost the same as a ready made apple pie at the bakery.

    @acciocoffee I agree with @knottieamusements. Apple pie is super easy, it just takes time to peel and cut the apples. I use a Pillsbury pie crust from the freezer section because that’s the hardest part and I always mess up the crust. I also prefer to do a apple crisp type of crumble on top, which is basically brown sugar, oats and butter (I’ll try to find the recipe I used last year). But IMO the premade crust is the way to go!

    @spartan4life I'm definitely getting myself some premade crusts. I'm not cleaning up the mess of me trying to make a homemade pie crust.

    I love Apple pie but peeling and coring apples makes me stabby. And one time I cut the apples up after forgetting to peel them. So that was a waste. 

    I would eat pumpkin pie year round if I could. It’s so justifiable for breakfast.
  • Options
    I don’t peel the apples when I make apple pie.  I also don’t core them - I just cut them in a way that removes the core as I go. Basically like this:

    I like pie and now I want pumpkin pie. Or I'd be ok with apple or cherry crumble... I'm all about the purchasing of pies. I can make pie, I choose to allow others to do the work and I'll reap the benefit  :D
    I'm just hoping I can eat everything this Christmas, much less Thanksgiving. DS is allergic to dairy - so nothing while bfing. Ugh. We do homemade ice cream... mmmmm. Now that's freaking awesome.

    we made strawberry rhubarb pie last night (thanks to this thread) and it was delicious for breakfast. i need to take advantage of all the rhubarb while it is still growing...should take me right into apple/pumpkin season!
    they are predicting that this will be our last really warm weekend of the season. i hope they are right.  :)
