My Mom makes the world’s best pies (don’t try to dispute it…) and she always makes us several varieties when we visit. Isaac has convinced her to bake a special pie whenever he comes. You see, he loves cherry flavoring but not the big old snot-like lumps (his words) of cherries in pie filling. Of course, in making the world’s best pie, one wouldn’t dream of buying canned pie filling. So, since my Mom makes her own, she is in a great position to filter out the cherries after making the syrup. That’s right, she makes cherry-juice pie for my son.
I have to admit, I prefer cherry-juice pie to cherry-snot pie any day. All the flavor remains but you never get the surprise loogie. Now, my boy likes to eat and he is all about cleaning up the last drop of cherry juice. He gets that from his mother who has a similar feeling about ice cream and apple pie. It’s cool though because we don’t have to wash their plates after they do their tongue-cleaning.
When we eat cherry-juice pie, we don’t talk. It’s serious business, you see, eating the world’s best pie. These pictures are taken over a 4 second period so the silence doesn’t last too long. He devours pie! So, have you ever had a juice pie or do you like the chunks (particularly in cherry pie)?

I understand this line of thinking. When I was younger, I loved pecan pie—without the pecans. I would pick them off and give them to my Mother.
Now I love pecans. I don’t share anything.

That’s my boy!!!! BTW – licking the plate is the highest form of compliment.
Yum! Looks like the boy got the bell licking gene. I should encourage my kids to lick their plates but they would have to fight the dogs– as long as I don’t have to do the dishes.

That is exactly how my wife’s grandfather mops up after homemade blueberry topping over waffles. Now my kids do it, too. (In fact, the first time I ever met my grandfather-in-law, we had dinner at their house and he licked the plate clean. I figured they must like me!)
ROFL…he is indeed his father’s son! So who’s plate was licked cleanest? Kim

Thanks! Only the best for the grandchildren. When they visit we always have pie and peanut butter fudge. Wish they visited more often.

I don’t really eat pies. I might have a sliver of pumpkin pie at holiday times and I do like the “apple pie” things from McDs, but that’s about it. In fact, I’d prefer just the pie crust, all by itself. 🙂

I’m a traditionalist, if I’m gonna eat pie, I need apple pie.
Cute pics Warren,Looks like you’ve got one of those tall, skinny blonde boys too. For minute there I thought I was looking at my youngest son : )
holy cow! I love cherry flavoring but I hate cherries in my cherry pie–I must meet your mother… I think she may be the answer to my cherry pie dreams! Maybe you can convince her to let you publish her recipe????? That would be the cherries!

I may have to look into getting a post on how she makes this sometime…it is awesome! We do like other pies in the usual manner…apple and berry pies must have pieces…but cherries I cannot stand!
Cherry snot? Gross – but cherry juice sounds yummy!
