i LIKE TO USE GREEN APPLES!!

My crumb-top apple is the favorite, but cherry is a close second.
I pre-cook my apples with the sugar, spices and flour in the microwave for a bit before I put them in the pie.

Apple is my all time favorite, except for my paternal grandmother's apple pie, because she kinda went nuts with the lemon to keep the apples from browning. I don't want to TASTE the lemon! I also always manage to choke down one piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, for tradition sake. Apologies to the Southern folk, but just thinking about pecan pie, with all that sugar in the filling, makes my teeth itch!

I remember one Thanksgiving night, actually it was 3 am the next day and I was cleaning up the kitchen, I was watching a very old episode of Galloping Gourmet. He made a maple Sugar Pie (he was living in Ottawa at the time) in, I'd estimate, a 9 inch by 12 inch oval Corningeware-type dish. After the pie had cooled, he covered the entire top with about 3 or 4 inches of whipped heavy cream. No wonder his poor wife, Treena, had a heart attack!

We do have a section dedicated to pies within our dessert forum, which also contains a thread with a poll about favourite pies.
I am sure you will enjoy browsing through this section, and here it is.

I never did get into the apple pie thing too much except for the apple crumb thing my best friend's mom made when we were kids.

For me ... sweet potato beats out a good pecan by only one whisker ... then peach and blackberry cobblers, then lemon and chocolate meringue. Rhubarb fits in there somewhere ... just not sure where to slide it in.

I've had a craving for lemon meringue pie recently. And also for an impossible pie that is delicious, called something like coconut custard impossible pie, think I'll make one of those soon, have lotsa milk and eggs at the moment..
