This time of year I’m reminded that I don’t really care for pie. I kind of like chocolate-y pies, and some lemon pies. To me the mystery of the universe is pumpkin pie.
pie + vegetables = not a chance
I don’t care how much whipped cream you slather on top, it still tastes healthy and vegetal. How I wish that cookies were the tradition at Thanksgiving.
Because I have a deep eternal adoration for cookies of all sorts.
Cookies make my world go round.

I absolutely agree with you. That is exactly how I feel, and pie can’t compare with a fresh baked cookie of any kind!
I totally agree! Somehow my mom had a chocolate cake which was to die for!!! so I didn’t have to go without dessert! (Plus she had a bunch of cookies on hand…what a woman!! (which is probably why I couldn’t eat as much turkey…cookies were too tempting!
Well, I do love pie. Not pumpkin, and only your apple. But I love all kinds of choclatey pies, berry pies, pecan pies, cream pies….yes, pies work for me. But cookies are good too.
I’d be fine with cookies too. Warm, with ice cream on top. Perfect.
Yep. It should be a rule!
no veggies and pastry crust
(although there are those horticulturists who argue that gourds are fruit since they produce seeds in their pulp…but that’s probably splitting hairs…)
I love pie. Pecan, apple, and pumpkin. Your cream pies I can live without. It’s really just glorified pudding as far as I can tell. I don’t even care for whip cream. As far as cookies, they have to be warm, or loaded with frosting to be a temptation.
I’d say cake would be number one. But only, really, really good cake. (Like the kind Jennie makes)
I also felt like the pie was a little too much for me this year, I did opt out of making it and instead did classic chocolate chip cookies. I was sure that the rest of the family would think that I was nutty for not bringing a pie, but you are not alone in just wanting cookies. We didn’t have any left to bring back home.
Long live the cookies.
Very cute post. I agree. A warm cookie is just about the best thing ever.
We bought pies. Lazy, I know… My favorite way to enjoy one. This year, I went for the cupcakes instead! Cookies & cupcakes are in a close tie for my most favorite dessert.
