I'm a berry pie girl. I love saskatoon pie, and rhubarb and the occasional good apple pie too. Mmmmmmmmmm.

It's a tie between Apple with homemade vanilla bean ice cream
and warm right out of the oven pecan!

alix, what is a saskatoon pie? (see, i even refrained from asking what part of the goose or moose does a saskatoon come from?)

Fruit, pumpkin, custard (esp. coconut custard!), cheese... I also picked "others" as I also adore strudels and cobblers (fruit crumbles)...

I also like savoury pies like quiche and "torta rustica" with ricotta, spinach, cheese etc., and I also like pies with puff pastry shells as well as short bread crusts...

Buckytom, you are such a goof. Saskatoons are a prairie type berry that taste a bit like blueberries only are more al dente and less sweet. I have a pic of one of MY pies, but can't find it at the moment. I am not even going to comment on that moose thing...

Thanks, Alix. I'm not familiar with the pie. I would Love to try it.

Another favorite, is B'stilla (sp). I ate it at a Morrocan restaurant, and would like to give it a try. It's a chicken pie, with yummy spices (cinnamon, raisins, etc.) and dusted with powdered sugar(?).

There are so many varieties, I didn't have enough room in the poll...but basically, a dessert-type pie, is what I had in mind - rather than a puff pastry or phyllo dough - with the holidays rolling around. But, I welcome any new recipes.

WhyyoulittleIoughta... buckytom they are NOT bland! You are such a brat!

Mish, they are not exactly readily available, you could likely find them online or in a specialty store, but they are expensive to buy HERE so I can only imagine what they would cost to be shipped. If you ever get up here, look for them. They are worth trying.
