Good question Bob, I used dry Sherry, but I went to Linda Stradley's website as she had my recipe posted there and she posted cream sherry. Here is the link.

My recipe only says "sherry". Either way, it is wonderful.

I love blueberry and lemon meringue but my favorite is one I make sometimes with layers of cherries, pastry cream and sweet plums, lattice top, with a rich cream cheese crust.

Looking at the description, it has the potential to be way too sweet but it is all from scratch of course, and not too sweet at all. I don't like things very sweet, I like to be able to taste the balance of the flavors.

I'm with you, Larry. The tart acidity of a rhubarb pie balanced by the sweetness of (preferably Muscovado) sugar and a good vanilla ice cream is so delicious.
Then I would like to place a vote for a well made Quiche Lorraine too. You never said the pie had to be sweet...
Cheers, Anders

I once won a state fair award with my concord grape pie, which tastes much like blueberry pie.


Could you share your recipe for Concord Grape Pie?

Grape Pie is one of my favourites, the recipe I use is good but there's always room for improvement.

The last wild blueberry pie of the season was made week before last, grape pies were last week, and this week is apple since the Northern Spy apples are in. But I'll also be making pumpkin for Thanksgiving, probably the Ginger Streusel variation from Epicurious.

Way late to the party here, but I love pie, so have to chime in...

In order of preference:

Blueberry
Peach
Pumpkin
Chocolate cream made with real chocolate pudding and real whipped cream -- a blast from the past

Truth be told though, I probably wouldn't pass up any piece of pie set in front of me. (Maybe mincemeat -- never had it, but it just doesn't sound good. :shock: )

Re: Your pie fave?

I grew up on fruit pies. My grandmother and mother both loved to bake and my grandparents were just blocks away from our house in a small town in Central Washington that grows lots of tree fruit (for those curious enough it was E. Wenatchee). So, I ate loads of fruit pie growing up.

My grandmom/mom's apple pie is just heavenly, especially warm. Pear is near the top of my list too. My recent favorite is huckleberry pie made with huckleberrys from my 94-year old grandfather's garden.

To me, pie is part of my childhood and part of my family, particularly my mother's side of the family. We had it for birthdays candles and all (who needs cake where there's fruit pie?), Thanksgiving, and those many nights we went to my grandparents for dinner, a visit and a hand of pinnochle.

It's taken me awhile to get used to the fact that some people don't like fruit pie. My husband is one of those people. He didn't grow up on pie. Still I've converted him to one pear pie a year....not a bad start for someone who doesn't like fruit pies. And it's only the beginning. :D

Don't let the sound fool you. Its one of my favorite containing mostly raisins, chopped apples and lots of spices. The name is a bit misleading, as I believe there is some type of dried meat in the mixture, but doesn't really do much to the flavor. Mincemeat and pumpkin are the traditional Thanksgiving favorites at our house. Hmmm... I've never made one, so I think I'll Google a recipe or look it up in Joy of Cooking and make one this year.

How many can I list?

by Cynthia Wenslow » Fri Oct 20, 2006 1:06 pm

In order of preference:

Blackberry
Sour Cherry
Sour Cherry and Blueberry together (fantastic!)
Peach
Rhubarb (no strawberries, please)

And, of course, I would not turn down chocolate cream, lemon meringue, coconut custard, Dutch apple, or raspberry :lol:

Oops! Edited to add pumpkin!

Hmm. See, none of it sounds good really. I don't like raisins at all, and a little spice is okay, but a lot of spice, no. Throw in a dried meat of any kind, and you've completely lost me. But I'm happy you like it, Howie. :D
