There's nothing as all-American as apple pie—except maybe chocolate pie or lemon meringue pie or coconut cream pie. Now it's easy to make any kind of pie you want (including a stellar homemade crust) thanks to our guide to all things pie. Start with the foundation—a perfectly flaky crust. For many cooks, piecrust is intimidating, but we take away the mystery of it with surefire recipes for all sorts of piecrusts (and tart crusts, too). Make easy work of adding decorative touches to pies, such as a lattice crust or special edging, with our how-to guide. Once you've mastered the crust, it's time to fill the pie with whatever flavor you desire. Try a fantastic blueberry ice cream pie, fried pies, nut pies, berry-filled concoctions, or pies highlighting the fresh flavors of summer or autumn. Many pies get their majesty from meringue; we'll teach you how to create this feathery, light topping. Find other yummy ways to top pies, too, from sprinkling with candied citrus slices to drizzling with gooey caramel sauce to make pies that really take the cake.
