Ma! Pa! Get your pies ready!

This past Friday was National Pie Day, which I celebrated by making a blackberry cobbler. (Confession: I actually had no idea it was National Pie Day, I just love cobbler and blackberries were on sale.) One day doesn’t seem like enough to celebrate pies. America needs at least a weekend.

Maybe that’s why the Great American Pie Show lasts two days and takes place right here in Missouri, a state that has no aversion to a slice or two. On April 24 and 25, the pie capital of the world will be Branson. This promises to be the Super Bowl of pies and even has a celebrity judge in Al Roker.
