I don't know if you have a couple of people in your family that devour a certain pie during the holidays or not.  

At my Mother's house during the holidays, my husband and my sister would try to see who was going to get the last piece of her Coconut Meringue Pie.

Well, I don't think it is quite that bad at my house during the holidays with my son and daughter-in-law, but pretty close.

Brandy likes her pie, warm, from the oven, and Jeff likes his pie, cold, from the refrigerator. Sometimes that gives Brandy a head start. (giggles)
