It is time this week for some pumpkin pie.

Chrissy

While Pumpkin Pie is always a standard menu item for Thanksgiving....  I also like to include Pecan Pie for the holiday times too.

Yes, it is easy to go nuts over pecan pie.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

In the summertime when I can get fresh peaches (they are very expensive here in Alaska) I love
to make a Peach Pie...

I prefer the Wild Blackberry pie that I make to be very slightly tart.

Tart cherry pies are good too.

Really good cherries seem to come from Washington and Michigan.

I would rather have a slightly tart fruit pie than one that is way too sweet.

Yes, and the varieties of such apple pies... such as Dutch Apple, lattice apple pies, etc.
The Fuji apple seems to be quite good in such pies.

I've been going pie happy recently-

My mom got more apples than she could eat as part of her "Farms to Families" box- so I've been making Apple Pies out of them!  Before the Apple Pies I made a tart Cherry Pie, and have all my supplies in hand for a Pumpkin Pie!  Then my mom calls up yesterday and says that my Aunt sent a whole box of fresh pecans!  Looks like I'll be putting the kids into nut shelling mode, as I love Pecan Pie!

Hugs!

Cherry rhubarb pie, which I make once a year during the summer fresh fresh produce (along with my cherry rhubarb compote, which I freeze to use for months later...sadly, I'm all out of cherry rhubarb compote already).

The cherry/rhubarb combination is the best of both worlds: sweet AND tart! 100% recommend.

Honorable mention: marionberry pie. I love marionberries...sadly, not available on the East Coast of the USA, because Oregonians eat all the marionberries. If I'm ever in Portland, I try to pick up a can of marionberry pie filling from the store to take home...and pray that the can doesn't break in my bag.

Chrissy

The best cherries are the Rainier cherries from Washington (I think they have started growing them in Michigan as well). But those are more for eating - too sweet for pie.

When I make 100% cherry pie (rare because I prefer cherry/rhubarb - see above), I usually do a mix of sweet and sour cherries.

Rainier cherries never even make it close to a pie at our house.  We'll stand around and eat them as fast as we can wash them up!

I live in southern USA and every November and December my favorite is pecan pie. But what's strange is what I've come to do with it. The morning after Thanksgiving I like to put a slice of the pie on top my morning bowl of oatmeal. You don't even have to rewarm the pie if you sink it into the hot oats a bit. It's great. I'll be doing that this Friday.
