Pies like you've never considered

This week's Times cover story is the culmination of hearty pie research. In the issue, you'll find the 100 best pies I have discovered around the state — which includes my five favorite fried pies and seven of the best Possum pies you'll encounter.

I know I've missed some. There have to be more great pies. But if nothing else, my research has brought me to this simple and strong conclusion. We, as Arkansawyers, like pie. We like it better than cake, than sundaes, than just about any other sort of concoction on the dessert menu. Pie is found in almost every Arkansas restaurant in some form or another. It's on Asian buffets and in Mexican groceries — and yes, in our convenience stores and on the counters at just about any sort of establishment you can imagine.

The idea of a sweet filling in a crust is just as native to us as having gravy with our biscuits and ice in our tea.

Check out the seven best Possum pies I found in the state — and then head over to Tie Dye Travels for a recipe to make your own. And if you have a pie recipe you'd like to share, now's the time to share it.

I'll share my ten favorite pies on KARK News at Noon today. Tune in if you wish.

Oh, and feel free to argue with me about the list. I'd love to find pie elsewhere.
