Favorite non-fruit pies

Looking for some ideas for non-fruit dessert pies, especially those that taste good warm

  1. 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.

      Pecan, Buttermilk, Chess, Coconut...all slightly warm.

      Edit....Oops! Wrong place...Sorry!

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

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

        1. 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.

          1. 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

              1. re: mym

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

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