Pie is perfect. It embraces its flaws—like when the crust sinks a little bit or the filling bubbles over in a sugary volcano. That's okay. It's all easy as pie when, well, there's pie. 

While you can't put much into a flakey, buttery crust that won't woo, fruit is especially swoonworthy. It's impossible not to get weak in the knees at lemon meringue pie, with a tart lemon curd filling sitting under an impeccable golden brown dome. It's totally normal, even, to blush a little at rhubarb and apple hand pies, whose size makes it excusable (thankfully) not to share. This weekend, bake for your sweetie pie—or anyone, including yourself. Here are 6 not-so-humble pies from Yossy Arefi that assert the dessert's dominance.
