  • I usually make from scratch a double layer pumpkin pie. which is basically cheesecake on bottom pumpkin pie on top. This year tho I will probably use a mix from my home business because I don't have much extra time due to derby and running a business working full time board of directors and just getting custody of my step-daughter while already having my son live with us.

  • I always get Marie Callendar's pies from the restaurant. I usually get a coconut cream, then I choose between chocolate cream and pecan. I don't know how to make pies.

  • I like to make my pies from scratch, usually apple crumb and pumpkin, but I may substitute a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting for the pumpkin pie this year, I recently tried it and it was AWESOME! Last year I hosted an unusually large Thanksgiving and with all the work I got overwhelmed and ordered pies from our local farm stand. They baked them that morning, still warm when I picked them up, they were REALLY good, but expensive! In a pinch I'd do that again, but like I said, prefer to bake my own.

  • I always make my pies from scratch and my family like a variety so I normally make pumkin, dutch apple, and cherry. Also on occasion I will make pecan pie for my husband, but he said I didn't have to this year since he is the only one who eats it and it usually goes to waist. There is also the rare occasion my mom or sister wants a banana creme pie, lemon meringue pie or chocolate cream pie so when they ask for them I make those along with the others.

  • I make my pies from scratch. this year I am looking at about 10 different types of pies. I think I have narrowed it down to crunchy caramel apple, cherry, pumpkin meringue, peanut butter, and swedish apple
