What’s Your Favorite Pie?

My sister Cindy said, “Pumpkin pie with whipped cream is one of my favorites for Thanksgiving, then cherry, apple or chocolate cream. Our dad, Clyde, enjoyed making pecan pie using the pecans he meticulous picked out of the shell. In the winter time, there was always a pan full of nuts and his picking tools next to his chair. When it came to walnuts he used his own method of cleaning the hulls off, then tossing them in the cement mixer to wash before cracking them open.”

Then my aunt, CJ, mentioned that a slice of strawberry rhubarb pie made by family friend, Tonda Alvarez might be the reason she’s feeling better today. I doubt that Tonda has found a cure for flu or colds, but strawberry rhubarb pie certainly perks up your taste buds.

My husband favors apple pie with a scoop of ice cream on top. I like that but in the fall, pumpkin pie is my first choice. How about you? What’s your favorite pie?

  1. I like the idea of a strawberry rhubarb pie, I have just had rhubarb sponge pudding for tea, one of my favourite fruits, so wondering how it would taste with strawberries.
    Happy thanks-giving.


  2. I love talking about pie memories. 🙂 You already know my stories, but my basic pie favorites are pumpkin, pecan, and cherry. I remember that lemon meringue was Grandpa McGhee’s favorite.
