Boston Cream


FWIW, Good Key Lime is good, most are way, way too sweet.
The right mix

Between tart and sweet is key! Key lime is my fave too. A nice warm apple pie ala mode is not far behind.

We have a wonderful Orchard market in Morgantown, PA  
GiantBlue : 10/27/2020 9:59 am : link
called Weavers.

They make a cherry pie to die for.

Amazing! I try to go there once a week for my apples, veggies and other stuff.

But my true passion is their pies. So based on their pies:

1. Cherry

2. Apple

3. Blueberry

4. Strawberry-Rhubarb

5. Raspberry

If you are every by the Morgantown exit of the PA Turnpike, get off and take Rt 10 North about three miles.

There is a big sign for the orchard.

Choc mousse
I am not sure I can place them in order  
Mike in NY : 10/27/2020 10:03 am : link
If done properly, nothing beats pretty much any fruit pie. Just as with Key Lime Pie, bad Cherry Pie can be really bad. Usually I find them too cloyingly sweet. I like Blueberry, Key Lime, Peach, Pecan, Pumpkin, and Strawberry-Rhubarb to put them in alphabetical order.
Jints in Carolina : 10/27/2020 10:06 am : link
1. Pumpkin  
HoodieGelo : 10/27/2020 10:11 am : link

Then whatever else, I'm not picky

I’m with the OP  
beatrixkiddo : 10/27/2020 10:49 am : link
Key Lime takes the #1, Lemon Meringue also up there ( I live tart and sweet, also prefer lighter citrusy deserts that are more on the refreshing side).

Next I’d go apple/peach combo cobbler, best of both.

3rd Pecan followed up by Blueberry
Strawbeery Ruhbarb ala mode

I dont get pie  
jestersdead : 10/27/2020 11:32 am : link
a lot. But my brother went to Syracuse and on our way home I would always stop at Bingham's in PA. They've got great pie.
My preference from there:
Chocolate peanut butter, caramel apple crumb, pecan, Strawberry Rhubarb

Awesome memories of my Mom’s Lemon Meringue pie. It was the best. After that Apple and Cherry pies.

Apple (regular or lattice crust or crumbletop it doesn't matter)
Peach cobbler
Sweet potato
Key lime
Lemon meringue
Chocolate mousse
Banana cream
My family's  
River Mike : 10/27/2020 2:48 pm : link
chocolate cream pie is absolutely number 1. No chocolate cream pie I've gotten from any other source is worth a second bite. A good apple pie is next, and I emphasize "good".

Absolutely worst is pecan just ahead of pumpkin.
Do fruit tarts count as pies?  
BlueLou'sBack : 10/27/2020 3:15 pm : link
If so, my favorite "pies" are berry tarts with a vanilla creme patissiere holding the berries onto a classic buttery and crispy short pastry shell.

Strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry doesn't matter which. Had to be made within the past 4 hours, otherwise the pastry cream ruins the tart shell.

After those, tarte tatin.

Aside from those, a good spicy pumpkin pie  
BlueLou'sBack : 10/27/2020 3:17 pm : link
in the same crispy butter short pastry crust.
Looks like we're talking sweet pies??  
moze1021 : 10/27/2020 4:17 pm : link
Sweet Potato
Chocolate Chess
Peach Raspberry


A place n Kennett Square, PA makes a Red Thai Chicken Curry pot pie which is the best pot pie I've ever had in my life. (The Chocolate Chess and Peach Raspberry above are also from the same shop)

But my wife does a Strawberry Rhubarb crisp for larger gatherings that is out of this world (especially with a chunk of French Vanilla Ice cream on top while it's still warm)

Briermere farms is pretty amazing, but homemade is still better imo.
