This is for BB and all the other pie lovers out there:

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.

Sour red cherry pie.  The sour-er, the better.  With a lattice lard crust, preferably.

Lemon Ice Box. Either homemade by me or from Bob Syke's in Bessemer, AL. It's a tossup between the two. Bob's may well be better than mine.

In the Pickles cartoon, Opal's guess at Earl's favorite pie is cute, and it fits many people.
My favorite pie is a fruit pie--apple, cherry, lemon meringue, berry pies... Having lived in Texas, I also love pecan pie. I am making myself hungry.

I wish I had a favorite carved in stone... but I really like a lot of flavors, and tend to "like the one I have in front of me  right now !!"
 
I love an extra-tart Lemon Pie, be it Meringue or Sour-Cream. I enjoy  most cherry/berry/rhubarb pies. I love the Tennessee-style home-made Carmel Pie we learned to make after our visit to the Catfish Hotel.
My respects to those of you who love it...but I pass on the Banana Pie and Pudding.  Yes on PECANs but no on any nuts harder than them...Walnuts are very good, but they hurt my old wooden teeth.
 
The recent Cherry/Raspberry Pie from Missouri and a Three-Berry Giant PIE from Costco Both were outstanding,  and top my current favorite lists. All the Creme Pies ('cept Banana) and be sure to add TAPIOCA in there..Love that "Fish-Egg Pie" !
 
Squash/Pumpkin/Sweet Potato all qualify also.  I just vote for pretty much any flavor pie, even those after sitting in the 'frig' for a few days still beat the freshest cake you can present in competition.
 
I Love Pie.

My mother won several pie contests in PA when I was growing up.  She won the most for her apple pies which was her least favorite to eat!  So, I love all berry pies, all fruit pies, pecan, lemon meringue (maybe my favorite), strawberry rhubarb, coconut cream and of course apple.  She also made killer fried pies.

Pie and sex have something in common. Even when it's not the best, it's still pretty good.

You and Earl (from the cartoon) are very much alike, since his favorite was round. I remember the photos of you making the caramel and then the pies with a grandson. Making memories. How about a nice cold slice of custard pie?

When I opened the link, there was nothing about pies in there.
Oh Well
Anyway, how can you call yourselves Americans without having Apple Pie at the top of your list?
I like Peecan too!

Where I lived and first had pecans in Texas, it is paKAHN, sir!
I like a good homemade chicken pie, too. Not all of life's good pies are sweet ones. Some are savory.

I have had many bad versions of it over the years, but when made by a true master, like Charlene Johnson of the late, great Farmer's Kitchen, nothing beats a slice of sour cream raisin.

It just makes the crust too mushy.  And the pie is usually sweet enough without the ice cream.  But, I know that Lisa and I are probably in the minority here.

You might find more people in agreement than you think. I agree that most two-crusted fruit pies don't need it for the reason you state. The only pie you might put ice cream on would be a streusel-topped/crumb-topped fruit pie. No flaky crust to ruin. I don't think I've ever put ice cream on a streusel-topped one, but I think it would be good. It would be akin to putting ice cream on apple crisp or peach cobbler. Yum.

My favorites, in order:   ......
 
1.)  Blueberry Pie.  Preferably made with wild blueberries, served cold and firm.  I don't like the mushy ones that have lots of "goop".  It should be almost all blueberries for the filling.
 
2.)  Coconut Cream.  Lots of coconut throughout with toasted coconut on top.    As with blueberry, best served cold and firm.  Preferably, not too "custardy". 
 
3.)  Key Lime.   Again, served cold and firm.   Should be lip puckering tart.  Preferably, no meringue. Firmer texture is best. 
 
Honorable mentions .... 
 
Apple.  Should be lots of chunks of apple, and the apples should still have a good amount a firmness left in them. I don't want a mushy apple sauce pie.  As with others, best served cold and firm, but can be okay warm if it is still firm and not mushy. 
 
Pumpkin.  Best with lots of pumpkin pie spice.  Dense texture is best.  Don't like 'em soft and mushy.  ---- Hmmm.  This seems to be  common theme of mine regarding pies.  :)

Shoo-fly Pie Recipe
By Diana Rattray
This old-fashioned shoo-fly pie is made with a molasses filling and a crumbly brown sugar topping. I used sorghum molasses in the pie pictured, but regular molasses can be used, or use part molasses and part cane syrup or golden syrup.
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Ingredients:
Pie Crust
1 1/3 cups flour, 6 ounces
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
7 tablespoons cold butter
5 to 7 tablespoons ice water
Filling
3/4 cup hot water
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup molasses, about 10 ounces
1 large egg, beaten
Topping
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, 5 ounces
2/3 cup brown sugar, about 5 ounces
4 tablespoons butter, cold
dash salt
Preparation:
Combine 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and whisk to blend ingredients. Cut the butter into small pieces and cut into the flour mixture with hands, a pastry blender, or food processor, until the mixture is crumbly with some pea size pieces of butter.
Blend in 4 tablespoons of ice water and mix with a fork until moistened. Continue adding small amounts of ice water until the dough begins to hold together. 
Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead a few times until you have cohesive dough.
Form a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for about 20 minutes.
Roll the chilled dough out into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Fold and fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim the edges and crimp as desired.
Heat the oven to 400° F (200° C/Gas Mark 6) .
In a bowl, dissolve the baking powder in the boiling water. Stir in molasses. Whisk in the beaten egg.
In another bowl, combine the 1 cup of flour with the 2/3 cup of brown sugar and a dash of salt. Cut in the 4 tablespoons of butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Pour the molasses filling into the crust.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the molasses mixture. 
Carefully move the pie to the oven and bake at 400° F (200° C/Gas Mark 6) for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350° F (180° C/Gas Mark 4) and continue baking for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the filling is set. Use a pie ring or homemade foil ring to protect the crust from over-browning after about 20 to 25 minutes. 
Cool on a rack. 
Serve with ice cream.

Like my good friend and fellow pie lover from PA would agree, I have rarely met a pie I didnt enjoy.  There are some out there, but few and far between.
 
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?

I live smack dab in the middle of apple country, so it's safe to say that's my favorite. I love autumn, driving past the orchards, stopping at this one for an apple fritter, that one for some hard cider, another for a donut and fresh cider, and picking some apples to put in a pie (usually McIntosh or Cortlands) later on.
A close second would be cherry pie.
 
I'll eat either with ice cream (coconut milk ice cream, I can't eat the regular stuff), it's usually eaten up well before the crust gets soggy! Vanilla for the apple, chocolate for the cherry.
