no chocolate option of any kind ?? is chocolate controversial in pie culture? because I could never vote for a dessert that did not involve chocolate (even though I like all the ones you mention up there)
I like chocolate chess pie so I voted for chess pie... reluctantly.
In that way, this poll resembles our system of electoral politics: you never get the choice you want, so you go for the closest thing, albeit reluctantly.
(I forgot chocolate pie, and also peanut butter pie)
My friend on facebook posted this picture of some kind of super chocolatey pie from Perkins (do you know Perkins?) and I've been obsessing about it ever since. Korea has cute desserts, but they are not particularly rich or extreme.
Now this is something I can get behind!
I have never heard of either a chocolate pie OR a chess pie!
While originally from England, I consider myself a kiwi in my tastes, and you really can't beat a mince* and cheese pie from the garage.
* minced meat, not fruit mince like those other weirdos call it.
That does sound delicious. The world of meat pies is an exotic one to a North American like me.
Also, forgive my ignorance on this, but is the pie floater something commonly encountered in New Zealand? In the early days of the International Pie for Breakfast Day Facebook group, someone asked if pie floaters counted, which prompted lively, slightly horrified debate among the moderators.
I had to look up pie floaters. Turns out it's an Australian thing. I have never seen one of these in New Zealand, probably because kiwis have better taste than that.
Thank goodness. That does not seem like an appetizing dish.
This year I'm going with a grasshopper pie because I'm a housewife from the 60's.
Nothing wrong with that, that was Peak Housewife time.
I'd like to qualify my answer and say that my favorite pie is rhubarb-raspberry-ginger. (Made by me of course! :) )
BTW do you have thoughts on a McD's Hot Apple Pie? I often say that this is the most uniquely American food we have.
That sounds delicious!
I haven't had a McD's apple pie in many years, but I remember loving them as a kid, and then, maybe, they changed the method of preparation? Like they stopped deep-frying them, perhaps? I could be imagining this. But the pie and the Shamrock Shake are the only two things McDonald's has that I want nowadays.
that was the only thing I ever liked from McDs.
hello, peach?! or cherry. but seriously, peach.
Forgot peach! Damn it. Peach is really good.
I've never been a fan of cherry, though, but I don't really like cherries in general.
Rhubarb pie might be the best, but rhubarb pie adulterated with strawberry is an abomination.
Rhubarb pie on its own??? This has literally never even occurred to me. Need that sweet, sweet strawberry.
I hate to choose. I would say pumpkin, and also mince (the fruit kind, aka abomination). Apple, also good. Key lime, also good. Otherwise... I've had peach cobbler, but not peach pie. An interesting idea. What are your druthers, in this poll?
I like apple, both because it's extremely versatile, and because it's the only pie I can reliably make on my own.
Pumpkin is also great, but I discovered buttermilk pie when I lived in the South and, especially with blueberries, that is something special.
shoofly (wet bottom version)
lemon bars (technically not a pie)
