Who doesn't love a slice of pie on a hot summer day or a cold winter night? Whether it's a flaky, doughy crust, or a warm graham cracker crust, pies make for the perfect dessert. And on π Day, er, Pie Day, we want nothing more than a fresh, round pie straight from the oven.
Pie is incredibly versatile and can include everything from juicy fruit pies like blackberry pie, strawberry pie, and apple pie, to savory meats like huntsman's pies, made with the same dough. They're also a great way to use this summer's bounty of fresh fruits, whether you favor stone fruits, berries, or citrus. Whipping up a fresh, homemade pie is a fun, easy summer activity, and any project that ends in a buttery, sweet slice of pie is definitely one that we like to take on.
