ISO American dessert

I'm looking for a recipe of any kind of typical american dessert.. I guess cheesecake, or some sort of pie is the best option, right?

Help me?

There's "french" style cheesecake and "NY" style chessecake.

If you want "American" - Apple Pie, Blueberry Pie.

How 'bout ice cream and cake? How 'bout just ice cream with all the fixing? Banana Splits, anyone? Yum!

Welcome, P.O.G.!

Yes, traditionally, apple pie is considered as "American" as it gets. And yes, other pies are typically associated with various regions of the U.S.

For example:

Shoo-fly pie around the Pennsylvania area.
Key lime pie in Florida
Georgia Peach pie
Pecan pie and sweet potato pie the South
Blueberry pie - Maine
Pumpkin pie, pretty much everywhere, around Thanksgiving

In addition, New York is famous for cheesecake, and Boston has its Indian Pudding (which many people think is an acquired taste, LOL!)

Looking forward to hearing other suggestions, too!

Ew, good list, QSis.
But speaking of Boston - Boston Cream Pie!

Apple Pie is what immediately comes to mind when you say "typical American dessert"

The Shakers also made an unusual lemon pie that called for slices of lemon with the pith and rind.
