Love Love Love me a homemade pie...

What kind of pie are you making for Thanksgiving?
I'll be up at the cabin...does altitude affect a pies outcome..can you tell I don't bake much.
Can't wait to hear all your pie responses!
Apple, sour cherry and bourbon pumpkin! Usually a guest brings salted pecan as well, but this year she wanted to try something different and is bringing a chocolate caramel cake. Sounds delicious, but it's not Thanksgiving without apple pie for me!
You didn't mention exactly where the cabin is, but only impact on pies might be a very slight increase in how fast liquid cooks out of a filling because of lower boiling point. And maybe moisture content of your crust if you're someplace really dry. I grew up cooking at about 6,000 feet in Colorado, but I'm in Texas now, so we must have pecan pie for Thanksgiving.
I also do love sour cherry pie with a fierce, fierce love; but apple for Thanksgiving is non-negotiable.
And I agree: homemade or none!
