    sweet potato or pumpkin gets my vote. i know some people like warm pecan pie, but it's usually too sweet for me, and serving it warm enhances the toothache factor.

      Custard pie, any flavor, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, ricotta,....

        Peanut butter pie, chocolate silk pie, chocolate chess pie - all delicious warm - just need plenty of milk to wash it down!

          Coconut-custard Cream Pie, Pecan Pie w/ the merest sprinkle of fleur de sel, Turtle pie, Chess pie, Nutmeg Custard pie, and asparagus quiche and onion/swiss tart.

            The traditional Québec meat pie 'Tourtière'
            It is made with a blend of fatty ground pork, ground venaison (moose, deer, caribou), and ground rabbit mixed with oignon, garlic, and 4 épices (nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, allspice) all tucked into a lard-based pie crust. Not healthy, but great cold weather eats!

              I'm pretty sure that doesn't count as a dessert pie by any stretch of the imagination! :P

                Isn't meat a 'dessert' ????

                I guess I did not see the 'dessert' part of the question
                OOps!
                In that case, a Polish cheesecake with farmer's curd - Sernik

              Shoo-fly pie---a sort of molasses-gooey bottom, crumb topping, Pennsylvania Dutch pie---uses stuff you always have in the house and tastes good with hot coffee.

                    Any cream pie. I like them better warm. My favorite is coconut cream,but cherry cream and chocolate aren't far behind.

                        i do a butternut with a maple chestnut cream pie that goes over well and is good warm with creme anglaise or vanilla ice cream.

                        grasshopper
                        bavarian creme
                        hazelnut mousse with a chocolate ganache topping
                        carrot... or a play on carrot cake with carrots, pineapple bits, raisins, nuts, etc.
                        rhubarb
                        mississippi mud pie
                        treacle tart cornflake pie
                        butterscotch pie
                        avocado pie
                        sawdust pie... pecans, coconut, egg whites, graham crackers, sugar...
                        sweet green tomato... okay, okay, actually tomato is a fruit
                        rum cream pie
                        key lime pie (if you don't count the lime juice :) )

                          French silk! Which was my reply to some other question yesterday, so I must have it on the brain. Maybe I'll make one this weekend :-)
