Your Turn

Does anyone actually like pumpkin pie? I mean I know you will probably eat it if set in front of you, but is it anyone's first choice of pie?

Getting the long end of the wishbone is a snap!

You’re a great audience. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

It is actually my favorite kind of pie, not a sloppy mess like other pies.

Unknown said...

Cook it custard style. Condensed milk, egg yolks. I don’t like the “runny” evaporated milk style. It looks like poo.

sandybrook said...

I kinda like it its almost like a custard pie. I used to love me some coconut custard pie when I was a kid.

Guesser said...

It is my favorite as well,Enty,never had mine apparently.

Tuesdi said...

I LOVE it. I cannot say it is my favorite, but it is in the top 3. I think I like Pecan best. Glad we had a "Your Turn" today - I didn't see one yesterday. It's how I get to know you peeps!

p swer said...

I don't like crust but I dig out the filling. I do like it.

Simon said...

LOVE pumpkin. Not sure what Enty’s top pick would be.

sandybrook said...

I bet hes an apple pie type of guy.

kelli grrrl said...

I like a little bit of pumpkin pie with my whipped cream.

Todd Gross said...

I hate pumpkin pie along with apple and pecan.

SillyWhabbit said...

I prefer Pumpkin Pie Cake.

Elivan said...

I don't like pie EXCEPT for pumpkin and I've started loving pecan now too. but my absolute fave is pumpkin

notthisagain said...

I dont like pie at all.

Lonely Bastard said...

Fun fact: I had never seen an actual pumpkin in real lufe until about seven or eight years ago. I still have never tasted one and have no intention of starting now either. They look repellent.

Guesser said...

Key Lime for second place,or summer. But I'm the person who buys all the 50%off cans of pumpkin at the end of the season,I make it all year. .

Do Tell said...

I FLOVE pumpkin pie.

Humor Me said...

Rite of Passage in many families. Spouse's grandmother made a squash pie that was way better than pumpkin. Heirloom squash plants - very hard to replicate these days (we have tried).

Fiendish Man said...

Oh yes. I like it enough to go back for seconds, and if there's enough left I'll have leftover pumpkin pie later.

PS said...

Pumpkin pie from Urth Caffe!

Liz Pop said...

LOVE pumpkin pie. First choice always, though, is strawberry-rhubarb.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Lurky McLurkster said...

@ Lonely the pumpkin you use for cooking is different than the type that is carved on Halloween

Layla said...

It has to be made by someone who knows how to do it. I hated it forever until I had "real" pumpkin pie.

.robert said...

First choice for me but no whipped cream. I like it year round.

PghGirl said...

Riding the pecan pie train

cat said...

I make sweet potato pies. They look like pumpkin pies, but taste so much better.

AlleyKat said...

Oooo pumpkin spice Krispy Kreme! They only had them at Halloween though.

Gator said...

No, it's boring. It's better as a cheesecake.

scurfie said...

I do love pumpkin pie. Does that make me weird? OH NO!

Sd Auntie said...

With whipped cream!! Yumm

Muckduck said...

I would rather have pumpkin cheesecake. And I will after I make it tonight.

kfitz said...

dont like, and wont eat

Glitter said...

Hate pumpkin pie, but love sweet potato pie made with cream cheese.

hothotheat said...

Nope, Cherry is my go-to holiday pie. I don't usually eat pie during the rest of the year.

Unknown said...

Definitely in my top 5, depending on who makes it. The canned filling is meh, but a fresh pumpkin pie, made by a good baker, is fantastic.

Dena said...

Not my fave. My gay uncles always bring pies from a shwanky bakery and pecan is always the biggest hit, followed kind of surprisingly by coconut cream.

A special Happy Thanksgiving to our girl, Candy Crowley...eat, drink, and cranberry!

David Howes said...

I prefer Apple Pie!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

=)

Farmgirl said...

Pumpkin pie is usually not spciy enough. Make it with kabocha for a fuller flavor.

Ice Angel said...

Perhaps if I sprayed an entire can of whipped cream on it I might. My son though LOVES it. I always buy one for the holidays and he pretty much eats the entire thing. (He's 18, 6 ft 1, weighs 145 and I hate him. lol...just kidding...love him but I always tell him it will catch up to him!)

Bleu said...

Love it.

dee lewis said...

Won’t touch pumpkin, but pile on the blueberry pie! YUM!!

Donna said...

Happy Thanksgiving CDANer’s! In our family, most like a “sliver” of each. Pumpkin custard style pie, and apple pie served with a slice of sharp cheddar. I think it’s the New England side that does the cheese and apple pie.

Also, oyster dressing...

Katrina's Voice said...

LOVE Pumpkin pie! Made several already this year, one with Rum Chata (just 1/2 cup - but made it interestingly good!) Second fav: Bourbon Pecan pie.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Ann said...

I like pumpkin pie. It's what I eat for breakfast every Thanksgiving morning. The holiday breakfast of champions. After the big meal it's always pecan pie for dessert!

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Wow! There are a lot of people copping to liking pumpkin pie. I would not have expected that.

Bitchysoisse said...

From-scratch pumpkin pie is divine. Protip: you can't make it from jack-o-lanterns, it must be made with crook-neck pumpkins that aren't hollow inside, and the cooked pumpkin must be strained through a cheesecloth to remove any stringy or undercooked parts. Then, prepared custard-style with a generous amount of spice, it's amazingly delicious.

I would also pass on a grocery-store canned pumpkin pie with soggy undercooked crust. The standard cheap pumpkin pie is revolting, pumpkin pies must be made with love and care.

Smalls said...

Pumpkin is definitely my favorite kind of pie. I'd happily eat it year-round.

WickedBee said...

I love it. I make it custard style on top of a cheesecake layer in a gingersnap crust with whipped cream and peanut brittle to garnish.
I grow a fuckton of pumpkins every year so I bake a bunch at once and freeze them. I get asked for the recipe but won't share my secrets.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Okay, WickedBee's sounds positively divine.

Donna said...

WickedBee is my Queen 👑
Costco in Hawaii sells Pumpkin Pie year-round. I have had it, and it’s dreck. Go fig?

Amartel said...

Hellz yes to pumpkin pie! Don't even need to dress it up if you do it right. Stop ragging on Thanksgiving food. Every year "Wah wah, turkey is bland" "Wah wah stuffing is bad for you." Leave Thanksgiving alooooone!

Kate K said...

This!!!

zerooptions said...

Love pumpkin pie!
2nd only to pecan pie!

Guest777 said...

Always been my favorite!

Roxanne said...

#1 Blackberry. #2 Dutch apple.

Weekittylass said...

I bake pumpkin, pecan, mince and apple pear for the holidays. We buy the little sugar pumpkins and bake them, then freeze. Bake that pie crust for about ten minutes before filling. Just make sure to cover the top of the pan with foil. It will not be soggy. Pecan is nothing but a big slice of candy. I make Bird’s custard for the mince and whipped cream for the rest. Wicked Bee yours sounds amazing. IIRC you’re a farmer. Also, nothing tastes better than a wild turkey. The flavor is so different than farmed. We’re lucky if one of the hunters gets one the weekend before. No luck this year.

James said...

I like pecan pie

Pogue Mahone said...

It's my fave. pie and actually the only kind I like. I LOVE it!!

Fairylights Lam said...

I like it, but it's not in my top three, and the rest of the family don't care for it. This year we are having apple, French Coconut, and raspberry instead.

Hortensia said...

Bitchysoisse: Love your name, and baking tips!

GentleBreeze said...

Love pumpkin pie!

Cee Kay said...

Pumpkin pie is definitely one of my great loves. I don't really have a first choice though. I mean, all pie is pretty good.

Mango said...

I like pumpkin pie, but I find all the numerous seasonal pumpkin-flavored foods rather nauseating.

Aquagirl said...

I’ve never been a big dessert eater (but give me a cheese plate and I’m in heaven.) I also feel that on Thanksgiving, people are often too full to enjoy it. So last year, when I was asked to bring a dessert, I asked the host if it needed to be Thanksgiving related. He told me to bring whatever I wanted. So I brought vanilla gelato, berry-flavored sorbets, and a bowl of mixed berries with a bit of honey. Huge hit and all those poor pies that people brought are probably still sitting there :)

Enty, I think next years question should be ‘what was your worst Thanksgiving experience ever’?

mary lamb said...

Butternut squash pie. It's infinitely better, both in taste and consistency. You need to lightly boil the squash, rice it, add eggs and spices the same as you would with pumpkin pie. I dare you to try it. You won't be disappointed. Homemade whipped cream is essential.

Happy Thanksgiving!

WickedBee said...

I am a farmer and we love wild turkey too!
Hubs got one so that's what we had for our Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving was October).

Happy Thanksgiving to all you beautiful, hilarious People! Love you all.

I don't like pie; and I don't celebrate a "holiday" where Americans' goal is to stuff themselves.
There are just too many millions of hungry people on the planet. Also elderly, lonely, incarcerated, terminal, hospitalized, orphaned and suffering people in neighboring countries and the US.
When there is a holiday that they can also enjoy, then it will truly mean something.

.robert said...

@mercyprosperity, but you have the ability to show how holier than thou you are when millions do not have internet access for real needs. People like you are why there is suffering in the world, otherwise you would not be able to tell everyone about it. Do you happen to be an atheist vegetarian too?

Ells said...

It’s my favorite pie! With loads of whipped cream!

Ells said...

@wicked bee, I’d love to try a wild turkey one year. Wish I had a hunter in the family.

Kelly said...

I don’t know that it’s my favorite, but definitely in my top 3. And pie is my favorite dessert—I do not discriminate ,(except pecan, I hate pecan).
