Three Great American Pies

Found this piece of history and wanted to pass it along....also included is a recipe. Wondered if any of you have found these in roadfood places. They are different, I'll say, That apple custard sure calls to me....and bourbon in a pie...why not.

    We too have made the Derby Pie.  For those who haven't had the pleasure, imagine a thick, rich chocolate chip cookie soaked in Bourbon.

    The apple pie looked scrumptious, but I'm more purist, I guess.  My 3:
     
    1. Open Apple pie with I/c or whipped ream.....simple Granny Smiths and Gala or other sweet apple.  Maybe a splash of marsala to the filling.
     
    2. Wild Maine Blueberries..................maybe added I/c or whipped cream.....but most will stand on their own.
     
    3. Key lime or Lemon Meringue Pie.........Real Key limes.yum....fake...yuck. Whipped cream nice.

    I am having a sweet tooth so am very much fond of desserts especially pie. Usually I order it from www.loveandquiches.com and satisfy myself.

    leethebard - thanks so much for posting info on that new Cook's Country cookbook, I put a hold on it at our library
     
    Would love to try those pie recipes - on the ones that use a whipped cream topping -make Paul Prudhomme's recipe for Chantilly Cream instead -  so much more > vanilla, a little sugar, Grand Marnier, brandy, and a dollop of sour cream.

    3. Key lime or Lemon Meringue Pie.........Real Key limes.yum....fake...yuck. Whipped cream nice.




    This made me ask a question that most will not care about..........
    I really like "Key Limes", too. Does the name represent a growing location.........The Florida Keys,,,, or the variety, grown anywhere?? When I (seldom) see them in a store, they are packed by an off keys Fla company, but that doesn't mean that they were not grown there. I never saw a lime grove on my few trips to the Keys.
     
    I have had the namesake pie at several places in Key West that claim to be "the best", and they are all world class.
     
    Another question......The pie was originally made with sweetened condensed milk, because fresh was not available. Obviously whipped cream would not have been available either. I wonder what the "original" pie was topped with, or if it was topped at all? The frozen Marie Callander Key Lime pie is good for frozen, but the topping that she uses, (creme, not whipped cream) is unliked by me, so I just scrape it off.

    Key limes used to refer to a specific regions Key Limes. The limes from the Florida Keys. Most of the Key Limes now available in the US are from Mexico and do not have the same flavour profile as a true Key Lime, (they're more astringent, than tart). True Key Limes are still available in a few places in the Keys and Florida, but they are becoming a rarity. Persian Limes, available darned near everywhere are an acceptable and tasty substitute. Certainly a better choice than the Mexican variety.
