Now Isa, go to the kitchen.....;)

When I'm damn good and ready!!!!

Pies made with beer... Could be interesting... They work well in cakes... I'll dig through my dusty old recipe books and see what I can modify with beer.

My Granny used to suck the pie filling from around any whole pecans in her pie. Then she'd hold out the soggy sucked pecan and offer it to us kids. We'd shriek in the hysterical and cruel disgust only the very young display (or the very old). Obviously this was a very, very long time ago, as it would have to be for this aged scribbler to have had a living granny. She didn't break her hip though. Those particular joints were too well-encased in comfortable pie-filling to feel any external impact, even if she had fallen victim to a well-placed cherry pip, or sucked pecan.

As long as there was cream on top, you had two pieces and you puked afterwards, it surely was pie

I think we might have had the same Grandmama.........back when horse and buggy wheels were still square. She would use pure oil (Brent crude #40) or pure pig fat to make her pies. Ew. Oddly, my granddad died quite old but I'm sure he fed the pie to the dog, who died quite young.

Purdy: Yes. Tomatoes are fruit, ergo pie. And cheese is the fifth food group (good for brittle old bones), so pie it is!!

Oooohh, I use beer in my beef and pork pot pies. I think that counts. I'll have to try the beer-pumpkin recipe. And Q, thanks for the big type as I didn't have my glasses on when I first looked at your response. Yup - bi-focals. In about another 10 minutes, I'll probably have to go for tri or quad focals. I'm aging quickly but look at all the knowledge I have to share - after I'm dead.

Helen, my grandmother did the same thing with cherry pie. She didn't like the cherries but loved the filling around them. She'd pile them up on her plate and try to give them to me. Eeewwww! There was just something about grandma spit that wasn't all that appealing when you were five (or any other age for that matter). I think that was back in the dark ages. (She also wouldn't have broken a hip as much as just bounced around the kitchen, giggling.)
