Don't know if this is the right place for it. But how about we start a list for what kind of pie your state is known for?? A this talk about pie on the other thread is getting me hungry.....

:D

Hair pie used to be a big seller here in the 80's now I guess you would call it hardwood floor pie. LOL my favorite is apple crumb. Tracy B was talking about some milk pie. I think I want to try that. Sounds like a mid west thing though :)

I was a hair pie fan myself back in the day, but I prefer a good apple crum these days with a little French vanilla.

I think it would be Key Lime here, but I'd give two Key Lime pies for one slice of Rhubarb. ..... :D and I like Key Lime.

We have one here in Maine that's pretty unique - lobster pie! Definitely not a dessert though. Usually the meat of a whole lobster in a baking dish with a breadcrumb top and lots of butter. Stick it in the oven to warm the lobster, melt the butter and brown the bread crumbs a little bit. The real thing is just that simple and very tasty. No filler like potatos or veggies, etc. Usually served with a baked potato or fries, veggie, and cole slaw or side salad for about $20.

Looks like another all time record catch this year so there's no shortage of "bugs" (which is what lobstermen call them). I have a neighbor whose brother-in-law is a full time lobster fisherman and he's pulled some traps this year with 40-60"bugs" in them, when 4-12 is more typical. He claims it's because most of the bottom feeding groundfish stocks have been so overfished over the last 20 years that there are few natural predators of lobsters left swimming around, so the lobster population is just booming. It's both good news and bad news as he's only being paid $1.50 - $2.00 per pound by the wholesale buyer becuase of the over abundance of them coming to the docks. Soft shells have been consistently around $3.99 retail all summer on the coast. Goooood eatin'!

Pecan is the state pie of Texas although it was not listed on the earlier link. Buttermilk pie is seen around here a lot as well and it tastes way better than it sounds.
