Who doesn’t love pie? It can be served warm or cold, it’s absolutely delicious, and it can be made with just about whatever filling you want. It’s also probably something that we don’t eat as much as we’d like here in Colorado (you know, with the whole fitness thing and whatnot), and it’s about time we change that. Pie Day is right around the corner (March 14), so we have the perfect excuse to get out and stuff our face with as much pie as possible. Here in Denver, we have plenty of bakeries that make exceptional pies, so check out these four establishments and be sure to get your grub on this coming Pie Day.
