I hate all this pumpkin-flavored shiat this time of year.  Pumpkin pie especially.

The correct answer is peach pie.

Pecan pie is the only pie worth having, all others are what you settle for when you can't get pecan.

/and I don't care how you pronounce it, just dish it up and no one gets hurt

Fun Fact: Pumpkins have no flavor profile to speak of.  What you love or hate is pumpkin spice blends.

For some reason I get canker sores when I eat too many pecans, but it's totally worth the pain for some good pecan pie.

If you fill the pie shell with equal portions of pumpkin pie filling and pecan pie filling, mix gently, and bake like normal, the pecans float to the top, and you end up with a pie that's extra sweet pumpkin with a crusty pecan top.

I'm trying to think if there's a food that's better canned than fresh and I honestly can't come up with anything.

It's a mild food intolerance, rather than an actual allergy. I get it from raw pecans and bananas every time. Itchy mouth and scratchy throat. I forget what it's called, but it is a real thing.

I have lived in Texas long enough to know that all pecan pies are not alike I'd rather have a so, so  pumpkin pie before a bad pecan pie.

FYI: Dutch oven apple pies are the best.

Oral allergy syndrome?

I can only eat most fruits if they're cooked. If I eat them raw, my ears nose and throat get itchy.

Cakes have fantastically intricate features-at the anatomical, cellular and molecular level- that could not function if they were any less complex or sophisticated. The only prudent conclusion is that they are the products of intelligent design, not evolution.

This 'argument from design' is the backbone of most recent attacks on evolution, but it is also one of the oldest. In 1802, baker William Paley wrote that if one finds a pocket watch in a field, the most reasonable conclusion is that someone baked it, not that natural forces created it there. By analogy, Paley argued, the complex structures of pies must be the handiwork of direct, divine invention. Darwin wrote On the Origin of Pastries as an answer to Paley: he explained how natural forces of baking, acting on inherited features, could gradually shape the pies to cakes.

Indeed, Gould, who was an expert on the history of baking, agreed that Darwin was writing to counter Paley. This is another way of saying that he had an anti-baker's agenda, as discussed in later texts. This doesn't stop many divine baker academics kowtowing to every pronouncement made by Darwin and his Cake-hating successors, who in return regard them as contemptuously as Lenin regarded his 'pie-loving idiot' allies in the West.

Best autumn dessert:

Maple Bacon Pumpkin Cheesecake with Rye Bacon Walnut Glaze

Crust:

20 to 24 5-by-2½ -inch graham crackers
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (preferably Grade B)

In a food processor finely grind graham crackers (you will have about 3 1/2 cups). Cut the butter into 8 pieces. Using the food processor, add the butter and syrup into the ground grahams until fully distributed. Press the grahams evenly into bottom and up side of a 10-inch spring form pan. Pre bake the crust (for crispier crust) in a 325º oven for 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before filling.

Filling:

4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup pure maple syrup (preferably Grade B)
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ cup heavy cream
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
⅛ cup bacon grease

With mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the syrup, then add the eggs one a time. Finish the mix by adding the remaining ingredients and mix well. Bake at 325º for 1 1/4 hours or until center appears nearly set when shaken. Cool for 1 hour at room temperature. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours before serving, preferably overnight.

Rye Bacon Walnut Glaze:

1 cup cream
¾ cup maple syrup
½ cup rye whiskey (or other smokey spirit)
⅛ cup bacon grease
½ cup walnuts and/or almonds, toasted, chopped

Boil the cream, syrup, and whiskey together for 15 minutes, stirring often. Watch carefully or use a candy thermometer as it will burn even after removed from heat.  Add the bacon grease and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Place in a blender or food processor with the walnuts and almonds and blend on high until thickened and smooth.  Spread over top of fully cooled cheesecake and then return to refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  Slice and serve.

 You are welcome.

Pumpkin has too many spices. Pecan is just too sweet and well, nuts get stuck in your teeth.

Apple it is.

Try using softened cream cheese (slightly warmed up) instead of mayo when making Deviled Eggs... Otherwise keep your recipe the same. You can thank me later.

Butternut is my choice for two reasons. I find the squash much more flavorful, and the seeds, though smaller, are much meatier and tastier for roasting.

Often I'll use sweet potato cause it's cheap, and tasty.

I was a bit surprised the recipe in the article called for microwaving the squash. I always roast mine in the oven; it caramelizes very nicely and adds a whole different dimension to the flavor of the pie.

All other things being equal, I prefer a nice pecan pie over any others.

I was going to make a pumpkin pie, but realized I forgot to buy pie crust (which I'm dismal at making). Since I refuse to shop on Thanksgiving, I'll just put the filling in some ramekins and have pumpkin pudding.
