Code block here!
My favorite type of pie is chicken pot pie! :)
:) those are so good on a cold night
Chocolate with a thin layer of melted chocolate on the bottom of the crust (finely minced pecans added to the pastry dough), before adding homemade pudding. Good whipped cream dabbed on when serving is optimal.
I want that!!!!!!!!
Next time I make one, I will post the recipe. I use coconut oil for the crust. One can easily change to a favorite fat, like butter. I use tallow or lard only for savory meat pies. I will not use organic shortening. Palm is ghastly, leaving a nasty flavor in the crust. The commercial shortening is canola and soy. shiver...
I use butter, why do you use coconut oil? I buy liquid coconut oil but I assume you are talking about the kind that comes in a tub.
It makes a very flaky crust. Yes, the solid under 72°F coconut oil. I had done half butter and half coconut oil, too. It is like using shortening, but tons healthier. It does not have the "under-taste" of shortening, either.
I always used crisco because that's how my grandma taught me but, .......well you know, I still use Crisco for tamales. (No one eats a tamale and expects it to be healthy.) I will try this the next time I make a pie crust and I hope I remember to tell you how it turns out. Thank you.
Use organic lard for tamales and frying tortillas. Organic is no hydro-whatever, and "clean". The flavor of the meal is beyond comparison when using lard. You will never go back to crap-fat. Lard is a good fat, if not that Manteca version. I was born and baked in Fresno. Friend's moms taught us girls how to make good Mexican food. Just do not let them give mom too much beer while making tamales, because when the raisins run out, she may sub M&M's. laughing...
Pumpkin and not just at Thanksgiving followed closely by pecan. I make a great pecan pie.
Mine is pumpkin too but followed by mince meat any time of the year!
I thought I was the only person on Earth who liked mince meat. I never have it since my Grandma died because I can't eat a whole pie.
Hand pies, usually, can be frozen, at least baked versions freeze well. I am not sure about deep-fried and if they would be soggy and greasy when thawed. Making hand pies instead, you can thaw, and warm if wanted, what equates to a slice of pie any time.
Chocolate, Pecan and chocolate pecan. But my all time favorite is my Memaws Oatmeal Pie.
Blackberry!!!! But I haven't eaten one since my grandma died, and she was the only one who knew how to make it :(
My grandmother used to make chocolate fried pies. On a recent visit home, my mom made some. I'm instantly transported back in time to the family farm and grandma's hot, steamy kitchen. Hard to beat that!
I make a baked version the chocolate (mousse-like filled) hand pies, besides fruit versions. I will post it to Recipes sometime soon. They did not last long. slurp...
My wife wondered the other day if they could be done baked. Please do share the recipe. My grandma also made the fruit fried pies, but I was partial to chocolate.
Apple. No question. I'll be making one in the next few days.
Ahhh Pi day.
Pumpkin all day erry day
