Y'know, the thread for your Sweet Tooth.

How 'bout we start with The 50 Pies / 50 States Project? I scrolled down to my state pie, fully expecting pecan and-
The state pie may be pecan but I went a little outside the box with a Texas red grapefruit custard pie in a corn meal crust topped with candied jalapeños.

I have never had a candied jalapeño, but now that I know that they exist, I'd very much like to correct this oversight!

Looks like it's just bags of the cookie/brownie bits that they put in their ice cream?

Well as any cheesesteak afficianado will tell you, it's not the ingredients so much has how you put it all together. The Whatchamacallit was a great candy bar. If they've mananged to improve on it, it'll will be quite good.

The new bar looks good on paper. I’d pick one up if I saw one.

The dough chunks above look amazing and scary and I should absolutely not buy them because I’d eat the whole bag and then feel terrible.

I had that Whozeewhatzit thing earlier today and thought it was a disappointing sequel to a damn good candy bar. It's a dense brick of crisp rice and fudge, with a thin layer of peanut butter on top, covered in milk chocolate. The satisfying smoothness of a Whachamacallit just isn't there; it's an entirely different (and inferior) experience. As its own thing, it's okay... you just need time to adapt to the texture, or textures. More PB likely would have helped.

My brilliant wife is making a pumpkin pie today, and she had the idea of substituting a half cup (~118mL) of maple syrup for the 3/4 cups (~178mL) of sugar that the recipe called for. It’s like a little touch of Canada!

Ooh, I'll be curious how that comes out!

A local pie shop and a local gelato shop teamed up and offered a 7 inch pie and a pint of gelato for $20. So we got a ginger pear crumble pie and apple cider gelato. We already ate the entire pie for breakfast over the last couple days and I am not ashamed. The gelato is amazing too but taking my time with that.

It got rave reviews from everyone who tasted it!

That sounds amazing. Pie is one of the best breakfasts out there.
