Dozens of pie bakers tried to answer PJ Hamels trivia question, “What are the top 3 pies baked for Thanksgiving Dinner. The first two were pumpkin pie and apple pie. Third stumped us. Many people went for mincemeat pie. That didn’t even make the list. Pecan pie was on the list but nowhere near number 3.
Are you ready? The third most common pie baked for Thanksgiving dinner is Chocolate Cream Pie.
Okay, I have never had a chocolate cream pie served anywhere I have ever eaten Thanksgiving dinner. So is your family one of those chocolate cream pie loving families? Mine is rebellious family apparently. Mincemeat is always served!
This spirited exchange was part of the Pie-palooza event at Titcomb’s Bookstore in Sandwich, Massachusetts.
