Ohh a thread near and dear to my heart. Pie was my late mom's specialty. I haven't had a pie to rival hers since she passed away. She made a pie
crust that was just heaven. And over many years she tried to teach others to duplicate it, including my sister and wife, to no avail.
My favorites in no particular order - apple, cherry, peach, gooseberry, rhubarb (no strawberries), strawberry, blueberry, pumpkin, butterscotch,
pecan, lemon meringue, key lime. Those were Tier One.
Second tier and still great were mincemeat, blackberry, sugar cream, chocolate.
Rumor had it her banana cream and coconut cream were terriffic, but not being a banana or coconut guy, I couldn't say. She usually made a couple of
different pies on Sunday, so there was always one I liked.
Now I want gooseberry pie. Real bad.
[Edit for typo - "micemeat" umm...no]
