Big news. Life-changing news. There's a brand new holiday happening right this very minute, and you're going to want to add it to your calendar. Drumroll please... it's Pie Week! That's right, your favorite dessert/breakfast/well-rounded (ha!) meal has been finally given its rightful due: seven days devoted to celebrating its existence. So get ready for recipes, tips, tricks, and jokes all about pie.

More: Make your pie plate as beautiful as the pie itself. Well, almost as beautiful.

In all seriousness, though, pies can be scary. For a dish so simple and beloved, people are surprisingly hesitant about tackling it, especially when the pressure is on (we see you, Thanksgiving.) But really, what is a pie but crust, filling, and a little bit of love? Make it vegan, make it raw, make it a rectangle -- all that really matters is that you make it delicious. That's where we can help you out. From rolling out the dough to the prerequisite whipped cream, we've got you covered on all matters pie-related. As long as you promise to share the finished result.
