Today is National Pie Day, and this is definitely one made-up holiday that I can get behind. It's easy to relegate pies to Thanksgiving and summertime, but these all-American treats are so irresistible, they deserve to be enjoyed year-round.
Of course, part of the delight of making a pie is figuring out what kind to make. In the middle of winter, I tend to crave bright, citrusy pies like this Lemon Cream Pie, pictured above, or rich, chocolatey pies like Chocolate Pecan Pie (below). And since both of them are single-crust pies, they're especially easy to make.
What kind of pie do you crave most this time of year?
