Eye Candy Friday

Just like Thanksgiving, today’s Eye Candy Friday post is about abundance and plenty. Just tell me which is your favorite:




Or cranberry pecan

My favorite is pumpkin but as the cook I really do have to try them all! Have a great weekend and enjoy all those leftovers.

    I’d like a slice of the cranberry pecan, please.

    They’re all beautiful!

    Gorgeous!! Too pretty to eat, but I’ll bet they were delicious!

    I’ve never had cranberry pecan but straightup pecan made with blackstrap has always been my favorite. Had I really thought ahead I would have had Dad send me some fresh pecans for this year’s pie. Yum!

    Pumpkin for Thanksgiving, but I love apple too.

    Mmm, that’s the most beautiful pumpkin pie I’ve ever seen. The leaf decoration is perfection. Cooking with Carole, that’s all I’ll say.

    I do think one of each would be nice…thank you…just a sliver. But apple is my fave.

    Pumpkin hands down. But they all look delicious!

  14. Mary K. in Rockport Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:02 am

    Definitely apple. But they all look lovely. Better than mine looked, I freely admit!

  15. Manise Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:06 am

    A sliver of each please. They all look wonderful! Have a great weekend!

  16. Karen Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:33 am

    Apple for sure!! Have a great weekend.

    Pumpkin. With whipped cream. Yummm.

    Although pumpkin is right up there, I love mincemeat pies. The pies are beautiful!

  19. Vicki Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 10:29 am

    Mmmm. Love the leaves on your pumpkin pie! They all look and sound delicious… yeah, one small slice of each, please.
    ; )

    It’s a toss up between Pumpkin and Mincemeat…..but Pumpkin won out for me on Thanksgiving :)

  21. lisa Said,

    Holy smokes Carole! Those are incredibly beautiful pies… and I bet they tasted pretty good too. My favorite is pecan, never had it w/ cranberries, but I love them too, so it’d be the one I went for. Never had mincemeat. At my house I made apple, pumpkin (with brandy hard sauce-first time, yum!), and plain pecan. And here’s what came , apple tart, frosted pumpkin bars, chocolate walnut oil drizzled spicy pumpkin cake, and canoli from Tripoli in Lawrence (but these were appetizers, desserts, breakfast). The pecan and apple tart (which had a egg glaze and was more sugary looking than the pie) went first.

    They all look so delicious, but that cranberry pecan–mmmmmmm…

  23. Susan Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 11:33 am

    Pumpkin, yo!

  24. Joy Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 11:39 am

    Beautiful pies! We had chocolate pecan pie. I love mincemeat, but don’t fix it often, as I’m the only one who will eat it, and don’t need to eat a whole pie by myself ;oP

  25. Cheryl S. Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 12:09 pm

    Overall, apple is my favorite. But I’ve been really craving a slice of good mincemeat pie.

  26. Teyani Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 12:24 pm

    good golly, you sure make glorious pies! Applause, applause.
    my fav?? pretty much any of them :-)

  27. Judy Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 12:29 pm

    small slice of each, please.

  28. Catie Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 12:34 pm

    What could possibly be wrong with cranberries and pecans. Truly beautiful. I made a lattice cranberry orange pie and a delicious macadamia ginger tart. Not purely traditional, but then, I never have been. The fact that my 8 year old was disappointed that I wasn’t making creme brulee made me think I was at least semi-traditional…..

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    OOhh! They all look divine, but I must admit I am eyeing the apple pie especially close! Excuse me while I go clean up after drooling over these luscious treats! Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed and happy! : )

    I make a great pumpkin and got to have a good amount of that yesterday, so I’ll take a slice of cranberry-pecan today.

  32. Cookie Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 2:23 pm


    I vote apple.

  33. Katie K Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 3:59 pm

    They all look wonderful. Did you make the mincemeat from scratch? Does it have suet in it?

    I made a quince tarte tatin and a pumpkin pie. All yummy.

    Dear Carole,
    I made your Cranberry Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and it was a big hit. I especially think it is delicious! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!! I substiuted maple syrup for the corn syrup and that worked great, but I did need to cook it a little longer to get it to set up.
    I read your blog pretty much every day and really enjoy your beautiful knitting, photograpy, and writing. You have a fun sense of humor! Also, I have to tell you how sweet and beautiful your Hannah looks! I’m sure you know that already, but what a beauty.
    My daughter is just turning 21 next month and we enjoy knitting and reading the blogs together!
    My best and thanks again for your fun blog!

    Traditionally apple – if made with Vermont MacIntosh.
    But…I also love pumpkin.

    Still, that cranberry pecan? *swoon*
    Hmm..That might be my new favorite.

  36. Suzanne Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 6:26 pm

    Apple is my favorite.

  37. Donna Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 6:44 pm

    Pumpkin is my absolute favorite. Yours looks so much prettier than mine though!

    Hope you enjoyed your Turkey Day.

  38. Norma Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 6:56 pm

    Gorgeous. I’d have to go with the cranberry-pecan, only because it’s not a regular in our rotation. But maybe that will change!

  39. Julie Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 7:31 pm

    Definitely cranberry pecan! Yum,Yum, Yummy!

  40. Marji Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:42 pm

    They all are beautiful. I’ll have a slice of the apple and the cranberry pecan, please!

    However, I make a grape pie that is our family favorite. Have you ever tried a grape pie?

  41. Paula Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:44 pm

    Gorgeous. I would have had to have a teeny sliver of each.

  42. amy Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 9:45 pm

    I love apple pie…but only the filling! Pumpkin is a close second.

    The cranberry would be a top choice too…without the nuts! Do they make cranberry pie?

    But like I said, the I only like the filling, so I always feel guilty for taking a piece when the hardest part of making it goes unappreciated!

  43. Lisa Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 10:29 pm

    I’ll have a slice of pumpkin please. Can I have some whipped cream with that?

  44. Doris Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 10:49 pm

    Those are gorgeous! I’ll have a small slice of each please….

  45. Sara Said,

      November 28, 2008 @ 10:50 pm

    The cranberry pecan is one I have never had – so, I would try it first. My favorite is always pumpkin!

  46. Sarah Said,

      November 29, 2008 @ 12:55 am

    It would be rude of me not to have a tiny bit of each.

  47. Jean Said,

      November 29, 2008 @ 10:31 am

    What a feast! A really good pie has to be my favorite. It rates above cakes, cookies and other delectable delights. I would have to ask for a slice of the apple pie (they all look delicious though).

  48. Leslie Said,

      November 29, 2008 @ 5:08 pm

    Today I would say apple but the pecan-cranberry looks mighty tempting, too.

  49. Carol Said,

      November 30, 2008 @ 9:25 am

    Hands down – the apple.

  50. Lissa Said,

      November 30, 2008 @ 4:40 pm

    happy thanksgiving from the other side of the country! I vote for Mincemeat if the “meat” is really apples. (auntie something-it comes in a jar, the best filling ever!) Cranberry pecan sounds yummy!

    I have to cast a vote for your cranberry pecan pie. It’s fabulous! I didn’t make all of the desserts this year so I didn’t make it. But I just saw some cranberries in my fridge, waiting to be used up. :)

  52. Hillary Said,

      December 1, 2008 @ 10:02 am

    They all look great but I’m definitely an apple girl.

  53. Kassia Said,

      December 2, 2008 @ 1:10 pm

    Oh my gosh they all look so delicious! I’d go for the apple or pumpkin especially but I think I’d have to try them all. :)

  54. dana Said,

      December 2, 2008 @ 3:17 pm

    your pies all look lovely. but i vote for chocolate cake. maybe i’ll bake one tonight….
