I've made a lot of pies (most in the interest of just learning how to make a variety of pie recipes), but some of the ones that stood out...

A Blueberry and cream pie with a shortbread cookie crust...




A Raspberry cream pie...


And a Lemon sour Cream pie with a cream cheese crust...

I have two family favorites. An apple pie with the top brushed twice with an egg wash. I give the was before it goes into the oven, and the send wash half way through baking. The top crust comes out so shiny and pretty. Almost too pretty to cut into.

And any custard type pie. There is almost no labor for custard pies.

Sweet pies:
Cherry cream cheese pie
Key Lime cream cheese pie
French silk pie (chocolate) with a meringue pie crust

I love chocolate meringue pie but my meringue always weeps, just cannot get it right. I'm going to try Italian meringue next time I make it.

Savory pies:
Duchess quiches
Pot pies of any kind
I know there are other savory pies but I just can't remember right now, long day, tired.

Being low carb, I've had to adapt. Gone are the days of sweet fruit pies. But I've learned some new recipes in the process. Below are a few...

Egg Custard Pie



Coconut Cheesecake Pie

My favorite pies are savory, though. Cornish pasties are at the top of the list...

Being a life long WI person, I never fail to crave the pasties! If you have a low carb recipe for that, I'd be so grateful.

To everyone, thank you for the pictures and recipes (if you shared), those are inspiring!
