Movement/Feminist Poem from 70s or 80s. Help.

This is on the tip of my tongue and I will slap myself when you name it for me: a poem from the 70s or 80s about community and activism. It counts up from 1: with 1 you can do this, with two you can do that. I remember that with six, you can share a pie. At some number, you start putting out a newsletter. I want to think Marge Piercy was the author, but I've almost certainly got that wrong.

Substituting pumpkin puree for pumpkin pie mix (recipe in progress!)

Help! I just started making a recipe for pumpkin bran muffins - I found the recipe at our grocery store, which has a samples kitchen at the back and has lots of recipe handouts. I just realized, part way through mixing the ingredients, that the recipe actually calls for one cup pumpkin pie mix. I wasn't paying attention and added one cup pumpkin puree. Can I just add pumpkin pie spice? Do I need to add more sugar? The recipe already calls for 2/3 cup packed brown sugar. Thanks for the help!

I need acid

It just occurred to me that the reaction that makes key lime pie doesn't actually depend on citrus, just on acidity. This means, hypothetically, one could make this kind of pie filling with things more interesting than lime or lemon juice. I need a sanity check on this idea, and some suggestions of delicious low-pH liquids. [more inside]

What was this amazing pie with cream and granola-like stuff?

Inspired by dotgirl's cookie question. In college (Houston, TX, 1988-1992), the cafeteria used to make a pie I loved. It must have had a crust of some sort but I don't remember what. It had a thick layer of dry, sweet, chewy, crunchy granola-like (but not granola) stuff - topped with a thick layer of whipped cream type stuff. The granola-like stuff was the key to the deliciousness - chewy yet crunchy at the same time; somewhat rice-krispy like. I haven't run into it since, and can't find the right terms to get a hit on google. Anybody recognize it? Thanks!

Lemon Meringue Pie: Beginner's Luck edition

I'm making a lemon meringue pie for Thanksgiving, and it's my first time 1) making a pie 2) making meringue and 3) transporting it in my car for a hour. My grandmother's signature dessert was a lemon meringue pie that she made from a recipe she'd memorized and no one ever wrote down. She's been gone for about ten years, and we're all still missing her cooking. I decided to make a lemon meringue pie this year, one that my father (who has celiac disease) can eat too. [more inside]

Make-ahead freezer blueberry pie

So I got this great recipe from Cooks Illustrated's Cooks Country for a make-ahead blueberry pie. I have previously frozen fruit pie fillings (in a foil lined pie plate) without the pastry (remove from pie plate once frozen and stack in freezer); but this recipe has you freeze the whole assembled unbaked pie--pastry and all, for popping in the oven still frozen when you are ready to serve it. Only after putting in the freezer did I start to think about the glass pie plate I made it in--I am SURE it will crack if I put it right in the oven from the freezer, but recipe specifically says not to defrost before baking or you will have a soggy crust. Help! what should I do? [more inside]

Bakers, why is this dough bitter?

I made a pie crust an hour ago and the dough tastes bitter to me. The ingredients: Gold Medal all-purpose white flour, lard, water, egg, vinegar, salt. I tasted each ingredient just now (except the egg) and they all seem fine. Does anyone know where if an interaction among some ingredients might be causing bitterness? Or are my taste buds wrong? I'd appreciate any relevant advice.

Pie is greater than not pie.

I'm trying to express my love for a certain dessert in a math/logic formula. I have this: π > ∼π , which I take to mean "Pi is greater than not Pi", and this: π > ∞-π, which I take to mean "Pi is greater than Everything but Pi". Do these make any sense or hold up in any legit way?

Death by Pie?

Can-I-Eat-This-Filter, Thanksgiving edition. Assembled an apple pie tonight, planned to bake it tomorrow morning, but accidentally put the egg white wash on the top crust tonight. If I keep it in the fridge all night and bake it tomorrow morning, it won't kill anyone, right? The wash is just egg white thinned with a little water, and I didn't put very much on before realizing my mistake. Thoughts?
