Mom's apple pie

Neelix's version of apple pie

Mom's apple pie was a dessert concocted by Neelix which was based on an Earth apple pie.

Ensign Harry Kim's mother used to make him apple pie before he was stranded in the Delta Quadrant along with the rest of the crew of the USS Voyager. Neelix made his version of mom's apple pie for Kim in 2377 in an attempt to cheer up the ensign with some "home cooking" after another promising method to return Voyager to the Alpha Quadrant didn't pan out.

While Kim sat in the mess hall prodding the dessert, he was approached by Tom Paris, who inquired if Kim was "making first contact with a new lifeform." Kim explained to Paris what it was and how he was unable to bring himself to try the dessert, but after doing so, he noted that it was "not bad – but it would have tasted better in San Francisco." (VOY: "Inside Man")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 36) described this dessert as "consisting of a compote of a sweet tree fruit baked in a flaky crust."
