    Best of luck! I understand (from some other posts) that you've never tried it. Well, believe me, they are much better than you might expect! I recommend serving with whipped cream on top.

    Now you've got me craving!

    AHHHH! I thought someone was putting me on a plane without my knowledge!!
    Now that I think of it, it's been too long since I've been abroad....would you consider having a person shipped to you instead of an *actual* pie?

    J/K. Enjoy. I assume you've never had it before??? It's DELISH!!!

    Remember, a lot of pumpkin pie sold here in the States is actually made from Sweet Potatoes

    Ba Witda :-D



    But if you had to send one dessert as a representation of North Americans, Something unique to our continent. What would it be?

    One obvious would be a pie. Some sort of fruit filling.

    Do they have ice cream blends like banana splits and soda floats on the other side of the oceans?



    P.S. The switch worked wonderfully. Plus a nice homepless man got a free dinner. :-)

    I've had both (and love both). At this local music festival I go to every year there is a church that sells the best Sweet Potatoe pies. I'm not sure how to describe the difference, but I think I know it. I'm game to judge the taste comparison.

    Would you believe that was the first thing I thought. "Why is pumpkinpie starting a thread about flying across the Atlantic?"

    As for pumpkin pie (the food), it is excellent, as I can attest.

    Ditto. And then of course I looked to see who started the thread, and it wasn't even pumpkinpie.... :-? :P

    Here's what I bought at the store this morning...

    1 - 30oz can Libby's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix (just add eggs and evaporated milk)

    1 - 5oz can of Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk (Vitammin D added)

    so all Pete needs is 2 large eggs and 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell.

    It won't be the best pumpkin pie in the world, but at least you'll get an idea of what it tastes like. The best kind is homemade from scratch. :P

    I will pack it up tonight, and drop the package off at the post office tomorrow morning.

    [edit to add - people often top the pie with whipped cream]

    From 1 can of filling, that should be enough for 2 pies, check directions on the side of the can. :wink:

    Actually, with pumpkin pie, canned filling and filling from scratch isn't all that different. The difference is in the pie shell! That's where you find the difference, the flakiness of the crust made from scratch vs a store bought, ready made shell. I have put a pie from scratch and one baked with filling side by side, hard to tell the difference in the filling. I was using E.D. Smith brand filling. :P

    Well I love pumpkin and I sure love pies! I'm sure that the combination of the two must be a culinary masterpiece!

    A, pumpkin pie, undoubtedly the best of pies. Made even better if you have some cinnamon ice cream handy (kinda like punch on the other side of the pond) but pity it's none to common.

    As a chicagoan, you should be introducing these people to real pizza. I won't rest until I can find a decent pizza in states not bordering northern IL!

    Well, the package has been mailed. It should arrive in 10 days (business days, I presume). I meant to include a personal note, but I forgot.

    I sure hope Pete Tattum knows how to bake.

    My return address will be on the box, so don't open it like a Christman present.

    I used to like pumpkin pie; that is, until I had a sweet potato pie baked by a real Southerner. Boy, is that good!

    Some like theirs with whipped cream, some with ice cream. Of course, both is pretty good , too. Definitely warm it up first.

    BTW, my dad likes apple pie with cheddar cheese on it! Is that weird or what!?!

    I do hope that your pie makes it alright. Having seen how those baggage handlers operate, I think you'll be lucky if it even resembles a pie when it gets there! Best of luck!

    The package only contains the two cans needed to make the pie. Pete will have to mix it (with 2 eggs) and bake it (with a pie crust).

    I have never had a sweet potato pie.
    I have never had apple pie with cheddar cheese, but it sounds tempting. :P

    Careless, let's keep the pizza talk low key. That would be a mess to send a frozen pizza. It could be done, but the cost.

    I was wondering about that. I thought you might have actually used FedEx or UPS overnight to ship an actual pie.

    I doubt it would have made it in one piece -- it would have been a mess.

    In a way, I'm rather relieved it's coming pre-cooked: I had wondered just what would arrive at my end, after American & British postal workers/airport baggage-handlers had done their bit...

    Or should that be bits?? 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[
