My family had never eaten pumpkin pie before, so for Thanksgiving my mom bought a small sugar pie pumpkin. I baked and scooped it out, made two huge pies and still had enough left over for soup. The adults loved it, but most impressive verdict came from my two younger cousins, 5 and 3 years old respectively. They tried a bite of the cheap apple pie my dad had bought from the supermarket made with hydrogenated soy oil, corn syrup and over processed apples, then my pumpkin pie made entirely from scratch. Both of them ate the pumpkin pie.

I almost always get suckered into making chess tarts for Thanksgiving and nobody touches the pumpkin pie because chess tarts are awesome. The filling is really rich so tarts have a better crust-to-filling ratio. Handmade crust is mandatory. My crust recipe uses 2.25c flour, 0.5c butter, 0.5c shortening, a dash of salt and ~6TBSP ICE water with as little kneading and rolling as possible so it doesn't get too tough. My filling is just a cup of white sugar, a cube of butter, two egg yolks and a whole egg cooked in a double boiler with constant stirring until it's brown but not gelatinous, then add a half cup of chopped walnuts and a half cup of raisins and cook a little longer. Pour in the shells and let them set up, no baking required. Hmm, maybe it's three egg yolks, it's been a year since I made any.

GreatGlavinsGhost: Rhubarb pie is horrible.

You shut your whore mouth. Rhubarb pie is wonderful. Last one I made had five lbs. of rhubarb and it was phenomenal.

And none of the strawberry garbage. Strawberries turn to nasty sludge when baked and ruin the texture of rhubarb.

Aquapope: Ice water

vodak and really cold butter are the keys to a flaky pie crust.

FTFY. Replace half the water with vodak and your crust will be even better.

My mom made a tapioca pie one year. It was a little like the jell-on pudding pies that the Cos used to hawk. But still kinda weird.

Raspberry pie + vanilla ice cream = perfection.

Seriously. Fark every single other kind of pie. You can't top this.

Pie is important to my family. I love all pie, I have yet to find one I'm not a fan of. I'd never heard of chess or vinegar pie though, but it sounds like pecan pie without the pecans, and what's the fun of that?? Shoofly, Rhubarb, Strawberry rhubarb, regular apple, german apple, pumpkin, pecan, cheesecake, blueberry, peach, strawberry, chocolate, pot pie, mincemeat pie, lemon meringue... my little sister runs a special order bakery called Pie and Other Irrational Baked Goods, because math jokes and delicious food are the kind of people we were raised to be.
