pieJanuary 23 and December 1 are both National Pie Days.

A pie is defined as any baked food with a filling in a pastry-lined pan. It may have a top pastry crust, but it is not necessary. There are savory pies like cottage pie and chicken pot pie, and there are sweet pies like shoofly pie and key lime pie. Fillings vary greatly from meat to fruit to custard an beyond.
