Cake is great and ice cream is nice, but there’s one dessert that reigns supreme…in our humble opinion, at least: pie. Why? Because it’s impressive, nostalgic and adaptable to every season and every holiday. And don’t get us started on the merits of a flaky, buttery crust. The choose-your-own-adventure dessert will always hold a special place in our sugar-obsessed heart, so we wrangled up the 60 best pie recipes to bake for fall, winter, spring and summer, from classics like Thanskgiving pumpkin and lemon meringue to surprising modern favorites like birthday cake pie. (Yep, we’d eat pie every day if we could.)
