This thread would scroll by a lot faster if all y'all would quit quoting the posters who are already lifetime members of my "Ignore Poster" list...

"Let them eat pie" just doesn't cut it.

Thats because we're reserving the pie for ourselves.

Pie is definitely >> cake.

Although my wife made a coconut cake a while back that had coconut milk in the batter, coconut creme filling and was covered with toasted coconut.

That was okay.

I prefer pie to cake. But to be fair to cake eaters, I think cake as a dessert category allows for more variety. Does that mean pie-eaters lack a sense of adventure?

Carrot cake is good, but you have to settle on pie in the end. Cherry, apple or blueberry... so many solid options!

There are many types of pastries in the pie class that might push it into a tie with cake. What, nobody enjoys a good tart?

In an attempt to re-rail the derailment (dont try this at home, kids!), here are a list of unusual pies...

Old Fashioned Sweet Green Tomato Pie
Ricotta and Fig Pie with Brioche Crust
Papaya Pie with Shortbread Crust
Grape Pie
Cheddar Cheese Fudge Pie


Anyone else have an interesting pie?

It's possible that many on this forum have enjoyed a good tart, but I think tarts lack substance. A couple of bites and the experience is over. Now, a good 9-inch pie allows for many delicious experiences.

Never heard of them but after looking at their website, I'm ordering some this week: https://www.hubigs.com/

Unclemick, you can order two Hubig baby "onesies" for your SO's upcoming twin greats, too!
