Does anyone else love Apple Pie?

I just had the best slice of apple pie ever. It was like apple pie baked by the Lorde Jesus Christ. Yum. Yum. Yum.

I realize that you just want to discuss apple pie, but next time you start a thread like this please title it "Who else loves apple pie?" or "Let's talk about apple pie." Otherwise you sound like a moron.

Thanks for the report, Dean.

Apple pie does not need capitalization. Lord does not have a final "e."

Nevermind these bitches, OP. I do love a good slice of apple pie. It's the all-American dessert.

by Anonymousreply 410/05/2012

OP you sound both fat an religious. Skip the pie and go for a walk.

by Anonymousreply 510/05/2012

Easy to make at home, OP, if you have the sense to buy a premade crust. Other than that, there's not much to it but chopping apples and adding seasonings.

And gaining weight, of course.

People who love apple pie have never tried a pear pie.

Apple pie remains my favorite pie ever (followed closely by chess). But... it [bold]has[/bold] to be homemade and it [bold]has[/bold] to use less sugar than called for. I can't stand an overly doctored pie where you can't even taste the natural sweetness of the apples. (Un)Fortunately, this means I am restricted to eating pie made by my mother or my sister.

I've never had pear pie. What is pear pie?

by Anonymousreply 1110/05/2012

Pear pie calls for baking pears in place of apples. My grandmother had a pear tree in the back yard and made us pear pies.

I prefer cherry pie, if you know what I'm sayin'.

Just to be perfectly clear, I'm using "cherry pie" as a euphemism for pussy. Sweet, sweet pussy.

A good pear pie will have ginger as the principal seasoning, instead of the cinnamon found in any good apple pie.

True Confessions: I eat pie with a spoon. I love the filling but dislike most crusts, especially if they're made with lard or shortening. The spoon enables me to get all of the filling, crust free.

Especially Key Lime pie. Ish, can't stand it, especially when it has meringue on it. Can't stand meringue either.

Christ, do I sound like a fusspot. Really not, its just that Key Lime pie happens to hit on two things I dislike.

Out of all the fruit pies, apple is at the bottom of my list. OTOH, I can easily sit down and eat an entire can of cherry pie filling and not feel guilty about it.

What sort of cheese would one eat with one's apple pie?

by Anonymousreply 5010/13/2012

A slice of cheddar on top.

by Anonymousreply 5110/13/2012

A nice sharp cheddar, R50.

I love apple pie but pear is even better. The best apple pie I ever ate turned out to be pear.

by Anonymousreply 5210/13/2012

OMG, some of you are brutal!! Thanks for starting this hilarious thread, OP.

I do love apple pie, especially the kind with the crumble on top. I forget what that's called. And there is nothing like a piece of good cheddar on top of a warm slice of apple pie.

Damn good stuff.

by Anonymousreply 5310/13/2012

My favorite is blueberry, if you're asking (and I know you're not, but ...)

Try apple pie with a crust that has cheddar cheese added to the dough.

by Anonymousreply 5510/13/2012

"I do love apple pie, especially the kind with the crumble on top"

The best local pie place calls it "Dutch apple" pie. They also make a "French apple" with a sort of buttery bread crumb mixture on top.

It's nice to have a fab local pie place.

by Anonymousreply 5610/13/2012

I'm with the people here who don't especially care for apple pie. Mainly because it's so seldom prepared well, despite the many recipes and types.

I'll take peach, cherry, rhubarb, or blackberry over apple any day.

Does anyone remember Gorky's Russian Cafe in downtown L.A.? Here is their apple pie recipe, which should satisfy r29.

by Anonymousreply 5810/13/2012

Use ice cold vodka instead of water for perfect crust. Also, use a mix of apple varieties.

by Anonymousreply 5910/13/2012

R50, dick cheese

by Anonymousreply 6010/14/2012

I agree about the vodka, R59. Cider vinegar works well too -- both inhibit gluten production, for a more tender crust that's very easy to work with.

by Anonymousreply 6110/14/2012

Why would I ever make my own crust, someone else makes it and I buy it at the store. It's such a pain to make crust.

by Anonymousreply 6210/14/2012

R62, when you have time & are in the mood to bake, making your own pie crust can be very satisfying. You can mix it up when convenient, freeze discs wrapped in Saran, then thaw & roll out when you need them. And using vodka or vinegar does make the dough really easy to handle, so the process is much less difficult.

A woven lattice top crust is fun to make & it shows off the beautiful fruit.

I'd marry the man who could make a decent raspberry pie. Not too sweet, and not too runny, and served warm with ice cream.
