So, okay, the storm Chicago had yesterday might make us look like wusses, but still. We're cold. And between winter, getting over the flu, and liking delicious things, this seems like a good time to talk about pie. We've carefully selected the recipes that made us go, "What is this, and why haven't we already made it and then ate it?"
Without further adu, a compilation of pies:

Pie I Invented This One Time:
One chilly day in Northern California, my best friend and I baked an apple pie. We went on some vague instructions from the guy who sold us apples at the farmer's market. On his advice, we used three kinds of apples. We skinned them, diced them, threw them in a mixture of flour, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and put it all in a pre-made crust.
But before we put this all in the crust, I had the best idea I've ever had in my life. I buttered the inside of the crust and pressed brown sugar into it. Do. This. Do it.
Here I am cackling over my own genius:
And there you have it. Pie.
