The United States is a pie-loving country. We eat it for dessert and the leftovers for breakfast. We argue about how and if to make homemade crust (and usually eat it regardless). We especially love pie around the holidays.
We reached out to pie makers from across the country, dug through government declarations, and drew on our personal experiences to find each state’s signature pie. Some states share a pie style, proving that even though states have their differences, we’re also alike in many ways. In some states there isn’t a clear-cut favorite (and there are surely disagreements among people who live in the state). Sometimes our choice was anything but conventional. And a little disclaimer: If it has pie in the name, it’s fair game. Regardless, we’re all winners when we’re eating pie.
These are the signature pies for every state in the US.
