I have to laugh at this one. I'm really not much of a desert person. But one year I confessed to Mom that my favorite pie was actually blueberry. So she made a point of making sure that there was a blueberry pie in her repetoire (usual would have been a pumpkin and an apple)(I made the rest of the dinner). Then, someone in the family put it on the lower shelf of my kitchen nook table. Needless to say, the pie disappeared, leaving tell-tale blue stains on my dogs' faces.

Now my grocery store bakery (a Piggly Wiggly) sells halves of blueberry pies, and I just buy one for myself some other time besides Thanksgiving. To me, though, pumpkin pie sort of means Thanksgivings.

For me this is a pie holiday. I always make pumpkin and pecan. I would love coconut cream, but I'm the only one that would eat it :-(

Those are my two favorites for Thanksgiving as well. I am having Thanksgiving at my daughter's this year and they don't like pecan pie (and my oldest grandson has braces and couldn't eat it anyway), so she is making a pumpkin pie and a peach-blueberry pie.

My husband and I would gladly share that coconut cream pie with you. Well, we would share it with you, but begrudgingly.

Pumpkin Pie, as much as I can get, anytime I can get it.
