Pumpkin like my Mom makes.

Blueberry and pecan are tied for third though.

Lemon meringue is best used as fertilizer.

What, no meat pies. Those are all deserts and not a proper pie.
Peppered Steak and cheese or Venison are my favourites.

You have something against smooooooth, sweet yellow goodness?? What the heck is wrong with custard pie? Huh?? Nobody on Earth likes custard? I mean, it's not a fruit or anything but it's still pie!! WTH?? I swear there is discrimination going on here. Dangit. This is soooooooo wrong on sooooooooooo many levels.

You are correct. No one on the planet likes custard pie. It's like fruit cake.

from the title, I thought this was a thread about which eating utensil is the best...

Personally I love the fork over every other invention, you can eat everything with it, including pie.

Cut me some slack guys (or better yet, cut me a slice of cherry pie) - i only had ten options! I just went for the ones i thought might be the most common!

I decided to stay away from the meat pies; i'm talking desert pies, not meal pies (i love chicken pie!).

From that insufficient list, I would choose blueberry. However given a much more reasonable and inclusive list, I would prefer Saskatoon Berry Pie

True. Although peach pie is not my favorite, Marie's kitchen (Near Winston-Salem NC) makes a peach cobbler that trumps any pie I have ever tried.
