Come to think of it, maybe it's Shoo-Fly pie. Makes more sense than a pie made from insects in loafers.

Shoo-Fly pie is named such because flies were drawn to the molasses. It's basically a sugar (molasses, brown sugar) filling between two crusts. A bit of vinegar and baking soda are added to "fluff" the sugars during baking. If you like sweet - Shoo-Fly pie is just that. I've had it once and I liked it - I was also about 10 so anything made of mostly sugar was a good thing. Oh wait, anything made mostly of sugar is still a good thing.

Katherine - Cool Whip???? (I understand. My mother made a Jello salad with Manderin orange slices, orange Jello and Cool Whip. It's a midwestern thing.) ;)

10... ???? oh my lord! Since you were around in the 1700's... that would make you.... OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Though some debate that Lady Elinor Fetiplace invented meringue in the 1500s. I was there too.)

Now what have you got to say??

All this pie talk just gave me a flash of Hubig's Pies, which was right down the street from where we stayed in New Orleans. The little bakery was always open, cooking away, and we'd see the pies in stores everywhere. Never actually ate one, though. Can anyone pick one up and ship it north?

one word for you. Old! The oldness of your comment is so old that it reeks of old people being old in an old time which is pretty old. Old old old old old old.

Although, Old people are known to make good pies so... you must be an expert!!!

Old!

Now can we have pie?

After looking at the list, no these are not always in season. Cherries are not in season in February, Pecans not in June, Apples aren’t ready in May. I'm not overly sure if Blueberries are in season by the end of April but I’m sure someone else could shed some light on this... preferably someone really old who has come and gone with the blueberries!

Since the list only includes pie holidays in the US...

Cherry season - June-August (variety dependent)
Apple season - August-October (variety dependent)
Pecan season - October-November
Blueberry season - June-July (southern states) / July-August (northern states)

at least one OLD person was able to arise to the challange.

One question about the source of your knowledge remains... did you consult a farmer's almanac for guidance or the internet?

Did you also make a pie before/during/after responding to this post?

Both - The Farmer's Almanac on the internet. And no, didn't bake a pie yet though it is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day so I'm thinking about it... It just took awhile to get the information since the search function doesn't understand text messaging shorthand and I had to type it all out the long way.

Plastic covers?? Are you planning to visit because I'll definitely need them for that! I'll need another dollar.

To answer your question - nothing is free in this world except advise. Cough up the buck, Buckwheat.
