The Best Cherry Pie, Country Living, July/August 2016

As the Republicans exit Cleveland and the Democrats head to Philly, we take a break from politics to declare, “In Pies We Trust.” After all, pies evoke nostalgia like no other dessert—not even you, s’mores. Pie-making is a comfort, a joy, and the sweet inspiration for a Broadway play shadowed by unspeakable tragedy. Pie has lots of wacky and wonderful spinoffs like pandowdy , cobbler, grunt, betty, and buckle that only your crazy cousin Martha can tell apart. Did you know that 10,000 slices of fruit pie will be served to cycling masses in Iowa this weekend? Or that Country Living named this cherry pie recipe the very best in America? And Dr. Oz says a slice of heaven is okay on vacation (just keep it to once a day). This is your weekend to savor something tasty.
