Do we have ice cream or whipped cream? That would probably make the difference.

Definitely Apple. But my all-time favorite pie is my Cherry-Blueberry Pie. Now that's good pie!

Pecan."Is there nothing on LJW about Hilary being chosen for Sec. of State?"I think they should just stick to butchering local news stories anyway...

I'd take apple over pumpkin, but my no. 1 fave is blackberry pie from Koehn's Bakery in Butler, MO.

Pumpkin. I have a bad association going back 30+ years involving eating cooked apples and then later that night coming down with the flu. All night long all that was coming up was cooked apples. Ick.

Between the two, I'd pick pumpking. But, I'm on board with the two votes for pecan!

Ohjayhawk, I'm with you, pumpkin over apple, but my real vote goes to pecan! I'm not sure if there's anything better than a warm pecan pie with a heaping spoonful of vanilla ice cream smothered over the top. Yes I am getting excited, haha!

I like cherry and blackberry pies the best. I like both pumkin and apple, so I don't know which I would choose between those two.

Apple Pie a la Mode, try the Chai Vanilla Ice Cream, the only I have found it is at the Merc.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what would happen if you ate 30 apples in one sitting? Would you be in perfect health for a month? Someone try this and get back to me.

okay, in that category apple vs pumpkin, I prefer ... artichoke pie! real thing. artichoke hearts all mashed together acts like pumpkin but tastes much better. very expensive unless you live in driving distance of Castroville CA!I'm with DaJudge et al! Pecan for me for sure. the Paradise Cafe used to have "douglas county pie was pecan with chocolate chips! oh baby! that was the best pecan pie!RE pumpkin, there are many ways to make it bland, slushy, not so good. but if it is homemade, good consistency, lotsa the mace, alspice cinomon etc., then it is good. and the bacon apple pie, yes, I bet that's rich! want to try it too!
