The Pies Have It
While you could argue that there's a dessert for every mood, we like to think pie is one of those sweet treats that can be enjoyed anytime, anyplace, by anyone. Don't get us wrong: Cake is a crowd-pleaser. But pie offers a much wider array of variations to suit different tastes and occasions. From all-American staples such as apple and pumpkin pie to old-school hits such as chess pie, lemon meringue, and shoofly pie, these are the best classic recipes that are simple, inexpensive, and sure to impress friends and family (that is, if you feel like sharing).
