Thinking about pie, though... I do like pie. And when it comes to picking my favorite, I'm not sure I can. I mean, in the south, nothing can beat a really good pecan pie. But again, as a chocoholic, I enjoy a slice of chocolate pie with a glass of cold milk. Yum! Which just reminded me, I have a recipe for a chocolate pecan pie that is the best of both worlds. I definitely need to dig that out and make a couple.
Mom used to make, special for me, a lemon ice-box pie that even now, I'd eat the whole thing in a day, if not adulting. And her coconut pie, one to swoon for. Made from scratch, no box pudding mix...oh my!
And of course, the sweet potato and pumpkin pies that get served during the holidays.
Let's not forget those "pot pies" either. A hearty meal in pie form. And pizza is called a pie in some places. And when I do a thick-crust, homemade one, it definitely could be called pie.
Now that I've totally made myself hungry, I'm going to go see what's in the kitchen for lunch. There is no pie, but maybe I'll fix that. :-)
What's your favorite pie?
