I do have a question for any of the mods and perhaps Stephen or The Michael (sorry MH, not you this time).  There is a forum category for Ice Cream and Custards and then "Other"  my question is.....  WHY NO PIE CATEGORY???????????!!!!!!!!!?????????  Wassup wit dat?


Obviously, that means we aren't talking about pie nearly enough!!!


But some of the thread categories havent been posted in MONTHS, and as much as we LOVE pie... you do the math

Looking through the list, it looks like most people prefer fruit or nut pies.  I like those just fine, but meringue pies are my favorite.

Don't think I've ever seen meringue piled that high!

Holy cow, that's a lot of meringue!  I like meringue too, but that's almost too much for me!

If memory serves me right, the one from the late, great Stone's in Marshalltown, Iowa was even taller.  Unfortunately, I don't have a decent photo of it.

I guess I'm used to the way my mother made meringue pies.....a 50/50 ratio of meringue to filling.  Her lemon meringue was to die for!

I agree that not every meringue pie should be like that, but it is a fun, delicious novelty!

BB:  I do think the meringue on the pies at Stone's were as tall as that in your photo. But increasingly, I'm seeing more and more places (like Magnolias in St. Paul) offering a variety of pies, but only the cream/meringue pies are homemade.   If that's the case, then it will be the homemade pie for me:  coconut, banana, butterscotch, chocolate.

I think that all pie, meringue or not, is a fun, delicious novelty for you!!!    Or, perhaps, on a serious note, the "staff of life"!

My current favorite pie is the sugar cream pie from Nick's Kitchen in Huntington, In.  I bought a whole frozen pie Tuesday and it was great but when you get it fresh at the restaurant (still warm) it is nearly an orgasmic experience (had to say that tieing into the sex & pie theme)!
 
My 8 year old son had his very first slice of this pie on Wednesday morning, he took one bite and groaned with pleasure as he said "this is wonderful"!

Rocky, he sounds like a true Hoosier!
 
rumaki-
I have noticed more often lately that some restaurants sell both pies that are homemade along with others that are not.  But, I have not noticed this division being with cream pies and fruit pies.  I will have to pay more attention to this.

A profiterole pie was my favorite.
 
It looked like a pie but the center was creme brulee while the crust was a circle of mini cream puffs drizzled with chocolate.  Decadence!

I had it at a now defunct restaurant in Beverly Hills.  I think the name was Le Cer or something like that.

Apple pie by far but the apples have to be soft and not hard!  A thick slice of melted sharp cheddar is a also a huge plus! 
The Wife makes them every year at Christmas time and has to make several because they are so good and everyone wants one!

I agree with the ratio that your mother made hers. Meringue is okay, but I'd like a taste of meringue along with the lemon or whatever filling.

There are 2 hybrids here in LA that I love.
 
Banberry Pie: A layer of banana cream topped with a layer of strawberry pie (Polly's Pies)
 
Southern Pecan Cheesecake: A layer of pecan pie topped with a layer of cheesecake (House of Pies)
 
Other greats:
 
Fruit of the Forest Pie (Casa de Fruta)
 
Blueberry Pie (Pie n Burger)
 
Peanut Butter Pie (Now defunct Wheel Inn, but I have the recipe!)
 
The best banana cream pie I have ever had was at Pedro y Lola's in Mazatlan, Mexico. A bit far for some pie.

When I was a young'un, my mother's best pie was a deep-dish apple pie with a flaky cheddar crust. In fifty years, I've yet to find a pie that would topple it from the top of my list. Until just recently, she made me that pie for my birthday every year. She's now 96 years old, and doesn't do much in the kitchen anymore.

I meant to ask before, do you have your mother's recipe? The cheddar crust sounds wonderful. Do you or does anyone else in your family carry on the tradition? Hope so!

When I see a tall meringue like that, I wonder just how big is the oven it is baked in? Some kind of commercial oven, for sure. How is it baked without burning the top and still getting all that meringue cooked through?

French silk pie made by my mom, followed by her apple pie and pecan pie.
 
Available "commercially," I'd have to say the chocolate pie at Monument Cafe in Georgetown, TX, tops my list.  I also love the lemon sour cream pie at Berry's Pie Pantry in Prescott, AZ, and the pecan chocolate chip pie at the Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen in Louisville, KY.  Key lime pie at Killer Seafood in Mexico Beach, FL, is very good, too.
 
Those huge, extreme meringue pies crack me up!!

love2bake--Nice touch to differentiate between homemade and commercially done. You've also listed quite an assortment of pies--flavor-wise and geographically. The huge, extreme meringue pies are all for show or mostly that way, that's for sure.

At one time, it was clearly chocolate cream.  However, over the past 10-20 years it seems they are all made using Cool-Whip type ingredients (whipped vegetable oil & corn syrup) and taste more like paraffin wax.
 
Favorite now is either fresh peach or raspberry followed by lemon cream, provided it's made with fresh lemon and whipping cream (NOT whipped vegetable oil), and strawberry cream.

No, I don't have the recipe. nor to my knowledge does any of my sisters.  My mother is 96, so I guess i better be asking her for it.

I like most cream pies.  I know that some people don't like meringue but when I see that a restaurant goes to the trouble of using meringue instead of whipped topping, it tells me that they use the same effort in making the filling.
