Every Pie Recipe You Want And Need

Adventures in Cooking

Despite its simplicity, there's something special about pie. There are no fancy layers or pretty frosting like you get with cake. Instead pie offers flaky, buttery crust -- and sometimes two of them. Plus, the fillings. Whether it's fruit filled, custard topped or chocolate loaded, pie filling is deep and generous. And that's why it's the greatest of all the desserts.

Another reason to love pie is because you can make a case for it no matter the season. It's essential in the fall when apples are in. It's absolutely crucial at Thanksgiving for a proper celebration. There's no better thing to make with rhubarb in the spring. And come summer time, when the fruit is plentiful, burying fresh berries in flaky bed of pastry is the proper thing to do.

What are we getting at? That you should eat pie all the time. We found just the recipes to help you do that -- 60 of them to be exact.
