      I make a sweet potato pie, usually for Thanksgiving, which I had to modify slightly to replace dairy products (butter, milk) with non-dairy products (non-dairy margarine, water).  I use a store bought graham cracker shell.

      But on Passover, I can’t use the graham cracker shell, so I make my own shell ,out of matzoh meal, margarine, and cinnamon.

      I grew up in the Chicago area on chicken and turkey pot pies as my mother worked (besides my father) and they were easy to buy, heat up, and serve, and as a kid, I had…not much say, so I ate them. Now I’m in Michigan so any of you from around here know what that means – Pasties! (Meat hand pie).   A few years ago, I used to belong to a civic club where we would have dinners is the local hospital dining room (actually not bad food and we got a deal), except when they’d serve Shepard’s pie. Eh.

      But!!! My spouse makes a really tasty sweet potato pie that for me any way, beats a pumpkin pie in the Autumn, hands down.

       

      PS.  That’s a very SHORT ‘a’ in the Michigan dish, no gutter talk from me!

      Remember fleur de lys pies, proper meat, proper gravy and proper pastry. mmmmmm

      They sold the recipe to pukka pies who put the price up and now make them so cheaply they are unrecognisable.

      Steak & ale, yuk. pasties, stodgy lumps of pastry with no filling, slurry & gristle pie. All made on the cheap, cheap, cheap.

      I would drive 100 miles a month to fill my fridge with proper meat pies, proper gravy and proper pastry.

      Any recommendations?

        Hi Sally,

        I’m not saying there aren’t other good brands out there, but I’m partial to Pieminister pies. They used to turn up to music festivals, and unfortunately always had the biggest queues!

        They have a website nowadays and you can order online.

      I live in Cornwall, so a proper Cornish Pasty (Beef, onion, swede\turnip\rutabaga, seasoning) but I must admit my favourite is a Chicken and Mushroom pot pie with a puff pastry crust. Mash and baked beans.

      Puff pastry crust. Sounds like me. Love a good puff sleeve and a piecrust waist.

        A true home made Cornish dinner plate size pie or pasties, with freshly washed vegetables from the allotment. Mmmmmm reminds me of holidays down on the moors to visit families.

      I’m not a big pie eater myself. Perhaps I would be in the UK, since you have all those meat pies. Here in the US, pies are usually sweet, and I’m not a big sweet eater. (I like to say I’m already sweet enough).

      But this time of year, I would be remiss not to mention Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Pudding Pie, both popular fall options when I was a child.

      Hugs,

      Elise

      Oh! I forgot to add my favourite.

      Steak and kidney puddings, made with good old suet crust pastry.   Two of them, out of their foil dishes,  do look superficially like a pair of forms! ( Yes I know, you can get big ones – like H cups, too.)

      But I prefer to steam them and not wear them, other than the inevitable “medals” on my top from the dripping delicious gravy.  I am such a messy eater.

      But it takes all sorts!  Some girl might be tempted to wear a pair. If you do for goodness sake don’t squeeze them!  Imagine if one burst in your bra!  No, I’d rather not….. the visual …. Eughhh!  … Noooo!

      I knew it!

      As I flexed my fingers to get on CDH this morning I thought Mmmmm…. the British Pie Awards.  What a golden crusted opportunity to knock those vegan pies into a cocked hat!  I might mention it, but wait! I bet I have been beaten to it.

      Either Grace or Amanda will have gotten their fingers in the pie first.

      So I was crustfallen when I saw Amanda had already gotten there.

      Another opportunity for me to commiserate with our veggie sisters lost. Though I do remember the last time …..  best not to mention it…. what was her name?   I really do miss her. We had some wonderful exchanges of different points of view.

      I can’t say I am surprised that a good meaty pie won.  The processed plant based taste-alikes by the veggie/vegan “butchers”  – aided and abetted by  meat producers like Bowyers, who knock out porky sausages by the millions, and  who have jumped on the lucrative bandwagon to fleece vegans,  are still tinkering with their concoctions and additives to try and  produce a meaty taste.

      Don’t get me wrong! I do love a veg pie or a samosa or even a tatie pasty.  But none of them have the really satisfying umami flavour of a good Steak and Kidney pie.  Nature provided them with the flavour that no lab tinkering with jackfruits and vitamin b1 pills and mushroom extracts and whatever can ever hit the spot.

      It comes close with a vegetarian haggis – about 80% as good as the real thing.  But these “dust and ashes” replica sausages are vile.

      What I can’t get my blonde bimbo head round is – why?   Why do these manufacturers want to make plant based foods taste (and even look like ) meat?  I have seen blood red meatless “beefburgers!”

      Is it because meat pies taste better?  I have yet to taste anything from plants like a good old Aberdeen Angus beef burger made with bone-marrow and chuck steak or brisket.

      If I become a vegetarian or even a vegan I would only eat healthy vegetarian foods – I wouldn’t want to scoff dubious tasting meat-alikes.  It would feel like hypocrisy.

      Meat and potato pies?  Or any other meat ,with or without veg, pies.  Get my vote anytime.

      Amanda.

      a good old fashioned Steak and Kidney pie…mash and mushy peas….with Worcester sauce, omg.

      warm Lemon meringue for sweet….is just the best.

      snacks???…Cornish pasty or Melton mowbray pork pie with English mustard….mmmmm

      chef’s tip….like Ms Bass, I love rhubarb pie too….but my recipe said nothing about actually cutting the rhubarb first!!!…..have you ever seen a pie three feet long and four inches wide????. I couldn’t get the damn thing in the oven😂😂😂

        Grace I am surprised you haven’t got an oven that big.
        Melton Mowbray pork pie with an English mustard now that and a bottle of brown ale goes down a treat.
        Have you tried an eggnog pie with a caramel rum sauce? Absolutely delicious.

      Ah, pies! For fruit, a good old fashioned Washington apple with a slice of extra sharp cheddar cheese. For sweet, French Silk with a drizzle of white chocolate, dark chocolate shavings and a dollop of whipped cream.  For meat, beef and vegetables, comfort food.

      Too funny, I was just thinking how quiet the culinary clique had become recently Amanda 😄.   Now there’s cheeseburgers and pie, my oh my!   In the dinner pie catagory theres nothing I love more than a good steak and mushroom pie Amanda, yum yum.  And, back while working all my years in the pubs, I developed a liking for scotch pies and mushy peas – a remarkably satisfying comfort food.

      Ohhh thats a tough choice

      I would have to go with freshly baked lemonn meringue pie,
      Or hot out of the oven cherry pie

      I just realised that uk vs america is two different things, my apologies

      A good steak and brown gravy tin pie with just a nice golden crisp across the top.

        No Apologies Kyra, I hope we have all moved on from the war of independence. Mind you throwing pies at each other would have been a better option.

      Definitely a stick in the mud for beef and poultry varieties.  Even  then, only if no other meat is on sale.
