I'm fine wih not considering it as chocolate. Because, hey, it doesn't taste anything like chocolate!

I find the varied opinions on White Chocolate very funny.  :)

Some people loathe it, some love it.  I like it.  One of the guys on my bowling league loves it.

Put me in the loathing category.

It has no taste, except sweet.  :P

Made a mincemeat pie yesterday and it's cooling very appropriately on the "pie safe". I saved back some of the pie crust to make the butter/cinnamon/sugar "scraps" for my grandchildren, just like my own grandmother used to do. It's kind of funny, making old-time desserts and timing them on your iphone!

Does anyone make savory pies? I have some pie crust left and I'm thinking about making something with my Vidalia fig and onion jam. I'm also thinking of making some shepherd's pies with the leftover lamb, but of course mashed potatoes make up the crust there!

No savory desserts of any kind here.  We had white chocolate chip cookies, chocolate pudding pie, pumpkin pie (unless you consider that savory), and brownies.

Pumpkin pie is borderline savory, IMO.

I was getting ready to make Persimmon Flans with Honeyed Whipped Cream from Judith Fertig's cookbook Pure Prairie and I decided to Google it first. 15,000 results, including this one:

I often turn to Google now for recipies instead of cookbooks.

And now the question du jour is, Shall I make the pumpkin pie this weekend, or wait until Thanksgiving morning????

I don't remember if you've mentioned your plans for this holiday, but if you're going to have to be cooking a lot of other stuff on Thanksgiving Day, I'd say make the pie ahead of time.

But I come from a tradition where holiday dinners are mid-day meals, so there's no time for pie baking that morning.

Still, seems like a lot of unnecessary additional work for Thanksgiving Day.
