Did you know that 9% of Americans choose to eat their pie crust first, before they start in on the filling? And did you know, that when asked if one would prefer a friend, a family member or a pie as their plus one, 29% chose the pie? Just kidding, I made that last bit up. But the first fact is definitely true (according to the internet) and is precisely why pie making, and more specifically #pieart, has become something of a fan-sport. It’s the intricate layering of exquisitely cut dough, the intentional design, the gentle browning until the color is just so, such that when pulled from the oven, the pie just might resemble something you would frame and hang in your house. Yep, that’s #pieart.
