I would like a slice of each please!
All homemade with love and pride!
This is my pie - pumpkin meringue pie with ginger macademia crust : )
So I toiled a little trying to decide what pie to make .. how could I choose for one is no more better than the other... there are oodles of them. They each have their own personality and are supreme in their own way.
So here is a short list of the pies I want to make and why:
fresh cherry pie because the taste of tart and sweet is never better than in this pie
creamy pumpkin creamy and traditional - my moms is the best
apple - you can't beat it - always cheers you up
chocolate cream - it takes me back to being a kid - it is what I always picked at the Queen Ann Cafateria
pecan - rich rich rich - the toasted nut flavor - ahhhh
mixed berry - when the berries are in season it ushers me into summer
peach with ice cream - i could lick the bottom of the plate - no , really!
coconut - its my brothers favorite
chocolate with blackberries - doesn't that sound sexy?
banana cream - its my husbands favorite
NO NO ... I must stop ... but you know I could go on.
You see that's the deal ... there are just so many pies out there each one that tells a little story of who likes it or why it is special.
... Perhaps I AM the PIE WHISPERER ....
