The story of the picture-perfect holiday pie is similar to the story of Chicken Little — not many want to make it, but everyone wants to help eat it. Unlike baking bread from scratch, preparing the holiday pie is not as hard as it seems.

While the crust is often a challenge, it is not impossible.

If you aren't up for the challenge, you can find pre-made crusts or no-bake crusts, but think of the sense of accomplishment you will feel after mixing, rolling and baking a golden, flaky shell.

Pick a pie filling and a crust and get in the kitchen. If you have a favorite recipe, modify it with another crust. Try something new, make a mess, experiment, but most of all have fun. In no time at all, your pie will be the hit of the party and your skills will be the talk of the dinner table.
