Well, we really don't do pie that often in my family. Christmas and sometimes on Thanksgiving, but usually I bake cakes, cookies and peanut butter balls or something else a bit more unique. I like pie, but not as much as the other desserts. I am the dessert-ist in my family.
However, at my grandmother's for the holidays (we do holiday parties at both mine and my grandmother's house. Love the double parties!) she makes all sorts of diff. pies! Ooooh! That reminds me, I almost forgot about my other grandmother's blueberry pie! Oh shit, she'd kill me. Lol. My grandmother on my mom's side has always made blueberry pie (just randomly. Not a specific holiday) and I've loved it and requested it since I was very young.
Back to my other grandmother. My dad's side. She usually has cherry pie and a few other pies on the holidays. She makes everything herself too.
