      Rotten egg pie.  Google it.  It is the only pie acceptable for ANY family oriented holiday.  Or any holiday period, come to think about it...

        At first I thought yuck rotten eggs....but once I read your recipe it sounds interesting and the raw egg must cook a bit with the melted chocolate  almost like chocolate mousse you need to mix the egg yolks with melted chocolate. I'll have to try yours sometime. Thanks for sharing your favorite!! Oh I see you don't melt the chocolate??? Wonder how that raw egg figures into the recipe? I'll just have to experiment sometime.

          Don't know what it does, but DO know that two eggs instead of one makes rotten egg soup instead of rotten egg pie.  Miscopied the recipe once and it was a disaster...big_smile

      Apple pie, (because it goes so well with baseball, hotdogs and Chevrolet).  Anyone else have the jingle stuck in their head now?

        I don't know what jingle you speak of but apple pie is definitely as All American as hot dogs and baseball smile thanks for sharing your favorite bBerean.

          Moneyfairy, I was referring to an ad Jingle Chevrolet debuted in 1975 and has revived periodically ever since.  It is now classic Americana, with every generation for nearly the last 40 years having been exposed to it.  I know it has been used as recently as 2011.  Here is the audio from one of the earliest versions I recall, (although the car pictured here is a 1969):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgIxzAngFzs

          That aside, I really do prefer the apple pie.  wink

          For our friends down under, the tag line was "Football, meat-pies, kangaroos and Holden cars", (Australia's version of Chevrolet).  So I guess if they had Thanksgiving, their vote would have to be meat pies.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjgSesvHoKc

      Thanks snakeslane for sharing your favorite.
      I like mine cooled like a custard pie and freshly whipped cream with a little vanilla smile.

    Can't stand pumpkin pie.  Prefer Sweet Potato Pie.

      That's the nicest thing you've ever said. Im glad you have a gentler side. smile
      Weird that you hate one and like the other when they're so similar, but both are good.
      I like the kind that come with pecan topping. Like 2 pies in one.

        Different forum...different subject....different view. 


        They're not very similar at all to me.  Sweet Potato Pie seems so much richer, has a better texture and taste so much better.  I like the pecans too.

    I'm more of an oddball when it comes to pies. I absolutely hate pumpkin. Yes, I have tried multiple recipes. They are all nasty. I hate anything with nuts ( my husband teases me and says I'm allergic). Pecan is therefore out the window. It depends on who is making apple and cherry pie on whether or not I like it.

    I love lemon meringue pie! My favorite. My husbands grandma made me a special one last year!!

      I remember that being my favorite pie when I was like 5... or maybe it was just the first pie Id ever tasted, I don't know, but it was good. Its a little sweet now, but still... how can you not like it.

      Apple or cherry pie - Bah!

      Last Thanksgiving my sister brought pear pie.  Almost as good as rotten egg and I have her word it will be there again this year.

      I love pears...

    Pumpkin pie, please.  And I'll also take hubby's share, since he cannot stand pumpkin in any form.

    Next in line would be cherry pie.

    I've never been a big fan of apple pie; not that I actively dislike it, I just don't think apples, when cooked, have all that much flavor.  You're mostly tasting the cinnamon.

    I do like mince pie--IF it's made with mock mincemeat, and not the old-fashioned kind that actually has beef bits and lard in it!

    That said, I've never been a huge fan of pie; I actually prefer cake.  It's the pie crust I'm not crazy about.  I never eat the edge of the crust.  To me, the crust is but a box to hold the good part.  wink

      I'm with you there - the only crust I'll make or eat is a graham cracker one.

      @DzyMsLizzy: Thanks for sharing your favorites and I agree with you about the old fashioned mince pies yuck and if you ever taste a pie crust with the mixture of butter flour and crisco and a bit of sugar and cinnamon you may change your mind about the crust, but like wilderness says above I love a graham cracker crust best too especially with custurd cream pies (like coconut cream pie or key lime pie or banana cream pie) all with fresh whipped cream on top of course smile now I'm hungry smile. Thanks again for sharing your favorite.
