all malware make yonation go something something November 22, 2008 11:55 AM   Subscribe

Hmm.. nope. Can the mods, uh, modify the intro to this question?

the site is unquestionably bad, and maybe even harmful in a trojan or other malware kind of way. i of course went to it, because the question was intriguing and i was curious, and now i'm worried i've downloaded something, or worse, the site used some kind of csrf thingie on my facebook. there should be some kind of additional caveat in the intro text other than that its "creepy."

My most persistent recurring dream involves me at a pie counter. I get to eat all the kinds of pie--which are very good--except the cream pies (yuck). Then a stranger comes in and tries to order the last slice of lemon meringue, the only kind I have yet to try because I'm saving it for last.

The dream varies from here: sometimes we argue a bit, sometimes I appeal to the server for justice, etc.

But I always get the last piece of lemon meringue pie.

I like cherry pie, but not too sweet. It's gotta have some tartness in there.

Mikey-San, does your peanut butter pie have cream cheese in it? 'Cause mine does and it's fantastic.

I like strawberry-rhubarb and everything else.

I use two boxes of crust in my cherry pies because it's the chewy doughy goodness that I like.

Ooh! My mom's pumpkin pie, which is the one off the Libby can, but with twice the spices, and a layer of cheesecake underneath.

For each pie, hand-beat one package of cream cheese with two eggs, sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Fill the piecrust halfway with cheesecake, then a layer of punpkin on top, bake as usual.

I just made lemon meringue pie for the first time, for my peanut's 13th birthday (teenagers are so demanding!).

FYI store-bought pie crusts use lard (ewww). Also FYI, individual lemon meringue pies (some with crusts and some without) are just as easy to make as the standard 8-slicer, and much more fun to eat at a birthday party. Like cupcakes. Golden-topped meringuey lemony cupcakes.

I like minced beef and spaghetti pie. With short pastry on the bottom and flaky on the top.
posted by shelleycat at 4:18 PM on November 22, 2008


Pie crusts should have lard in them! Or shortening. It makes the crust flaky and delicious in all the right ways.

I'm pretty fond of pecan pie. Everyone I know, though, hates pecan pie. Sometimes, I feel alone.

Lard is what makes pie crusts flaky!

That said, there won't be any pie in this household for Thanksgiving. We will have a tart. No pies!

This is called the day-after-thanksgiving pie.

We're having vegans for dinnner (so tender! ha ha), so one of the pies will be a vegan chocolate pie, one will be non-vegan chocolate pie, one will be an apple-cranberry pie. Someone may well turn up with pumpkin pie.


Pie pie pie. Pie crust gets made with a mixture of butter and shortening.

Mmm. Pie.

posted by gingerbeer at 8:01 PM on November 22, 2008


Beaten to the punch by a BitterOldPunk!

That tourtiere recipe will get you started, but after you bake a few, you will end up tweaking the recipe to your liking.

* You can stay with a 2:1 ratio of lean pork to lean beef, but equal amounts work, too. You can also go for fattier meat if lean isn't around. For God's sake, you're eating pastry. Don't bother adding ground veal (one of the traditional trinity of meats) because modern veal resembles wet kleenex.
* You can add more sweet spices. Proceed cautiously with the cloves, otherwise your pie will taste like a toothache. Do add cinnamon, ground ginger (or, hey, grated or crushed fresh ginger) and NUTMEG. I usually throw in some cardamom and some ground star anise (not regular anise) because I always have some around.
* I'd recommend cooking the meat, onions and spices together on gentle heat, stirring often, using beef broth instead of water, adding it bit by bit as needed. To encourage the filling to get the right cohesive texture, add in some cooked, well-mashed potato after you add the liquid and keep stirring. One medium potato is plenty for one pie. Taste and adjust the spicing as needed.

posted by Acari at 10:32 PM on November 22, 2008


I have a strained relationship with Pie. I see it on the holidays, make nice, and try to pretend like everything's cool, but we keep our distance. When Pie is in an apple or cherry mood, I graciously stand back, letting Pie act the belle of the ball, but I just know that I really can't stand it when Pie is acting like that. When Pie feels like being a little more Key Lime, I'm more game to take notice, but I still come away unenthused.

When Pie get's into a Pumpkin kind of mood, though, I jump all over Pie, and jealously too, all acting to alpha male to keep everyone else's hands away from my precious Pie. Pie, how could I have forsaken you all of those times. It's worth all the rest just to have you as Pumpkin. Please, baby, please.

I think Pie know's it's not working out between us, but Pie keeps coming back acting all pumpkin-y and I just can't resist.

One of us is going to have to break on this, sooner or later. I just know it. Something's gotta give here.

On the savoury front, I had a beef and oyster pie recently. Sounds pretty vile in a 'People of olden times, what were you thinking?!' way, but it was fucking sublime.
