People…think about what you’re saying when asked which type of pie you want sitting on the dessert table next to the powered sugar dusted brownies and Strawberry Pretzel dessert at your Thanksgiving Day meal. I get the whole ‘perception is reality’ thing that says because my perception that pumpkin pie is the Thanksgiving pie of choice, that is also my reality. According to the Thanksgiving Day poll people at Buzzfeed, survey says….Apple Pie? Apple Pie never even popped into my mind when it came to picking the ultimate pie as a mainstay for such a glorious feast. 42% of people said Apple was the top pie for the day, while 39% said Pumpkin and a mere 19% went with Pecan…which by the way, is also delish!
I’m not sure what I’D call a Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie . . . but apparently a lot of people would call it “better.” Upon further digging into the ‘facts’ of this survey, they also found people would rather have regular green beans than green bean casserole . . . and they’re split 50-50 on stuffing versus mac and cheese. I sit here with my head in my hands wondering just who they asked and how I need to invite these over for Thanksgiving dinner so they can enjoy the creaminess of a pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Now that I think about it….Peach Pie would work too 😉
