Give me a piece of great, wild blueberry pie and I swoon. And just try to keep me away from home made strawberry-rhubarb pie. And then there are the other fruit pies that know one ever eats, but really should, like pear pie, can you say yum? And cream pies, everything from banana to Bavarian. And what about ice cream pies, or lemon meringue.

Ok, if you're going to back me into a corner, I'm going with apple, with a lattice-top crust, dotted with soft caramel drops between the lattice-strips, with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Oh, and I'll need another one of those 22 year old bodies so that I can eat it.

Makes my mouth water while reading your post,..bavarian pie just sound so heavenly..i agree apple pie is great especially with a good ol' vanilla ice cream on top:)

I love fruit pies. Blueberry is tops with apple and cherry close behind. All with two full, shiny, golden, brown crusts. No crumbles, lattices, please.

I love pecan pie. The sticky, gooey sweetness contrasted by the soft crunch and flavor of the nuts. Mmm!

Key lime pie, tart and in a real crust, not graham cracker.

Lemon meringue, wow. A puckeringly tart filling and a golden mountain of meringue on top.

The orange-colored trio of pies - pumpkin, squash and sweet potato. Creamy, custardy, melt-in-your-mouth goodness flavored with spices from far-away lands.

Cream pies! Pudding in a crust with whipped cream! Chocolate, banana, strawberry... can you think of a bad one?

Chiffon pies! Light airy goodness with fruit flavors.

A thick New York style cheesecake topped with a thick, chunky fruit topping. (yes, it's a pie by definition).

Shepherd's pie, chicken pie. Not dessert but PIES!

Ok, Ok, twist my arm and I'll admit I don't really care for rhubarb...

...but strawberry is great.

Drooling on the keyboard, gotta go get me some PIE!
Nice list you got there..:i too love shepherds pieI am drooling

Pumpkin and pecan are my absolute favorites, but I love cherry, rhubarb, coconut custard, lemon meringue, mincemeat (the way my mom made it, with apples diced into it to lessen the intensity a bit), chocolate meringue, and many other kinds!

While I've seen many good choices here, my favorite is Black Raspberry made with fresh picked berries and a very SHORT crust. When I had my own bakery this was the fastest selling pie (when avaiable) I had.

I don't bake, but when I buy or order pie in a restaurant, it's going to be key lime. Always.

I would never turn down peach pie or rhubarb pie, though.
