Poll: How do you like your pie served?

*** VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU LIKE ***
*** VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU LIKE ***
*** VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU LIKE ***

When you order a slice of pie, how do you like it served?

Do you like it warmed? Cold? Scoop of Ice Cream? Mound of Whipped Cream? Sprinkle some sugar on it? Howse about the English way with a slice of cheese? Or some fruit topping on it?

Do you prefer it with milk or coffee?

Only 10 options allowed, so had to leave some out. And of course, it will vary by type of pie. Perhaps you like warm apple pie with ice cream, or cold pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

NOTE: Pizza and Meat Pies are *EXCLUDED* from this poll!

This poll was inspired by my recent order for a slice of peach pie. I couldn't believe how long it took them to bring it. Then I found out why, they had heated it to scalding temperatures.

But I like my pie cold! Almost always. They ruined my peach pie! Crust was now all soggy.

And, unlike my wife, I almost never get ice cream or whipped cream on it, because I want to taste the pie.

I had to vote for a lot of them. Warm bluebery pie with really good vanilla ice cream; cool pumpkin pie with whipped cream; really rich cheesecake with a drizzle of fruit; and the list goes on.....

Pie cold? Room temp or heated is the only way to go. With ice cream. After a good ride, of course-- zero guilt.

Warm berry pie with ice cream is my favorite I like coffee with my pie.

I've never had an alcoholic drink with pie but do like beer with oatmeal raisin cookies

Well now I can't go back and add more picks. But yes it depends on the pie. Cherrie, Lemon Meringue, Boston cream, coconut custard, and shoo fly pie I take just so. (A little PA Dutch lingo there) Apple or blueberry I take with or without ice cream. Key Lime with whipped cream. Pumpkin I don't care for. And unlike other deserts, I actually prefer homemade from scratch for pies. The prepared fillings are just too much sugar and strange filling material. Although truth be told I don't eat much due to diabetes.

I'm a pie purist. Just the pie with no ice cream or whipped cream, but I do like a glass of cold milk with it. I have been known to have a chicory cafe au lait (did I spell that correctly?) with pie.

And all of the above, except I don't drink alcohol or coffee, and never sprinkle sugar. It makes it fattening.

I use to be a major fan of "Cream Pies" but I'm heading more towards "Fruit Pies", nowadays My grandma would make a "Chocolate Merrange (sp?)" just for ME, the Merrange was super lite and fluffy, not like the ultra-heavy stuff in the Pie stores Still I have to admit I don't get too much Pie on rides as there's just not a "safe" place to lock the bikes at any of the area "Pie Places"!

Warm apple, blueberry or cherry pie with ice cream served with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot coffee. The only option missing is "Infrequently". Maybe a half dozen times a year is plenty of pie for me.

As with BD, I limit my pie intake to a few slices a year. Apple pie in the fall, around the hollidays. Other pies, more often, but they have been excluded from this poll....................

Coffee hound here, so I like everything served with coffee! As for pie-room temp or warmed. Finally, a poll I can sink my teeth into!

Most definately cold and with a cup of freshly groung and brewed Kenya AA coffee. Adding anything to a good pie is akin to mixing Woodford Reserve with Coke. Sacrilege!!!! Yes, I am a pie snob

Whipped Cream with a slice of Pumpkin Pie...tells you how much whipped cream I use!

Warm Apple with Ice cream, but cold will work as well.
Cold glass of milk please

You nearly have it right- but with hot Rhubarb- it has to be custard and a Large coffee.

But failing hot rhubarb or berry- Then a nice cool cheesecake would do just aswell- providing it is the healthy version with fruit on it. (Think this one has 1/2 a strawberry on it)

Did you vote for the cheese option?

Because I thought the votes for cheese were at 4 and then your message came in later and they are still at 4.

+1 to that. I would only add that I believe there is an optimum time in the life of a pie when it is at its very best. That time begins about 30-45 minutes after its removal from the oven but I'm not sure when the period ends. Has to do with the crust retaining its flakiness and not getting too soggy. When that has taken place, pie is merely good.

Perhaps some careful, systematic pie research is needed.
