You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Well dear Vivian, what pie would you make. Maybe I'll make it for next year. I have been asked to bake 2 blackberry pies for the weekend. I may make 3 and see how one tastes with low fat sour cream. yum yum :smileywink:




Yes, Cindersue, let me know about the lowfat sour cream. If that works, it wouldnt be too fattening anyway. right! We can pretend, anyway!




I don't know if substitute sugar would work either say like splendor. Probably wouldnt give it enought texture. Oh well, this is getting to be a dieter's special delight. If it would work. Even Viv could eat it(the whole pie that it)

I love pumpkin pie. Other than that, my very favorite is homemade deep dish peach cobbler! One made like in a 9x12 dish with the top crust in a lattice across it and enough cinnamony flour inside that when the juices mix with it you get that wonderful thick filling thats so tasty! Love that. Berry pies, I have never liked blackberry, they grow wild here and you can kill yourself trying to pick them from the prickly bushes but I just dont like the taste of blackberry, blueberry yes! Chocolate cream is good. Strawberry cream cheese is good. But for just a really yummy pie that to me is an old comfort food, its definately a homemade peach cobbler. :smileyhappy:




I'm gaining weight just reading this! It all sounds soooo delicious!! I think I'll go make some banana bread for my kids. They love it and we always have some over ripe bananas around. I may even get a piece of it if I'm really quick. Otherwise I could lose a finger if I don't reach fast enough. My kids are pigs!

Cindersue & Blackberry Pie

Cindersue--

Thanks so much for the Blackberry Pie recipe. I'm going to make it this weekend. I cheat and use Pillsbury pie crusts in the refrigerator sector of the grocery.

And you know what is the best part, LizzieAnn? If you have a little bit of the pie dough left over you can eat it. No use throwing it away. I love raw pie dough. Sorry in advance for grossing some of you all out! LOL!

Re: Cindersue & Blackberry Pie

Never had raw pie dough. That's a new one for me. I was thinking I could just bake it and put ice cream over it, or fry it and sprinkle it with cinnamon-sugar! Mmmm!!!!

When my mother would make pies, she never made anything from a box or mix or frozen lol, anyway, she would have me in the kitchen to learn (still cant make that fluffy of a pie crust!) she would give me some of the left over pie dough to cut out like cookies and put cinnamon and sugar and butter on to bake with her pies and that would be my baking at the time.

Well, hon, sweety pie, and all that, and formost a great pal, I was really paying you the biggest compliment. If we can get the ingredients all down to almost zero calories, then you can eat the whole thing if you like that is, and not gain an ounce.
Now, wasn't I thinking of you in a nice concern sweet way now??? Love, me. hehehe

Re: Cindersue & Blackberry Pie

Linda,
I love left over pie dough, all slathered with butter, cinnamon and sugar, then rolled into logs - cut in small pinwheels, and definately cooked in the oven! All crispy and hot out of the oven...mm, mm, good! Oh, yeah, don't forget that tall glass of ice cold milk to wash every last finger lick'n morsel down!....Memories of childhood!.....! You eat it your way, and I'll suck up every last calorie my way! :smileyvery-happy:
