- Pecan. The king of all pies. The Albert Pujols of pies. The GS McLennan of flans. The Willie McCallum of tarts (um, wait a sec . . .).
- Key lime. Must be made with real key limes.
- Rhubarb + strawberry. Not big on mixed fruits, but this really works. Easy on the sugar.
- Meat. Nothing beats a greezy meat pie with HP, mushy peas and a bottle of Irn Bru (except of course for pecan, key lime and rhubarb-strawberry).
- Pumpkin. None of that canned stuff, either. Real poached pumpkin, please.
