  • I make my pies with the help of my children. I have 4 (now grownish) children 2 boys, 2 girls. They all have their favorites so its a tradition that I buy the ingredients and we make a family deal out of baking our pies. Everyone comes over to the house the day before. We laugh & play. My two boys usually end up eating the pies they make with spoons so the girls and I bake the extras for them while they watch tv...spoons & pies in hand. We do this at every big holiday. My youngest son (who is 20 )carries his pie under his arm everywhere he goes until he eats it all. Its not like we dont cook him pies...he just likes carrying the pies with him! LOL! Silly boy! But I love it just the same. Cant buy that at a grocery store...

  • I prefer to make them, but it all depends on timing. Sometimes I'm so busy with just the meal that I say screw it and I just buy the pies. If I make them, I do apple with crumb topping and pumpkin.

  • I buy them. I was not blessed with culinary talent lol. (Plus I'm kind of lazy sometimes.) I'm working on it, though.

  • Normally I just buy, but since I am not having thanksgiving at my house I am thinking about making a pie myself. Even though I dont even like pie. Or perhaps a cupcake turkey. I haven't decided.

  • I make much more fun when we do our own baking. We will actually be making pumpkin pie this weekend because the kids have been asking for it and I made an apple pie the other day....I am getting a head start on the baking, lol.
