Great thread, and I love all of those pies.

But when I think of pies I also include the savory ones, such as pot pies, beef pies, shepherd's pie, ham pies, fish pies, and yes, one I first tried after some liquid courage, steak and kidney pie.

One of the best culinary aspects of Thanksgiving is the pot pies we make a few days later. They disappear almost as fast as we can make them.

After visiting the UK, I realized how tasty a savory pie can be.

Now I am a convert.

And am learning that cooking those pies is not very difficult at all.

Am not knocking the wonderful sweet pies. If I had to choose a favorite among those, I could not.

Just really am a fan of savory pies as well.

I love pie! I like cake too, but I definitely prefer pie. I love pretty much any kind, but these are my favorites:

Lemon meringue
Chocolate meringue
Dutch apple

P.S. A tip for keeping your fruit pies from bubbling over--My mom did this and it put an end to pies going over (I haven't tried it yet, as I haven't made a fruit pie in awhile). Use a glass pie dish. Cook for awhile in the microwave oven, then finish in the regular oven. I'm sorry, I really don't know how long, and my mom died 4 years ago so I can't ask her, but I figure you could play around with it and find the right times.

I'll see if I can post the picture- as soon as I saw the cover, I had to buy the magazine. Womens Day did the same thing to me this month with that pumpkin cheesecake. wow.[/img]
