I’m pretty sure their identity as the “lazy, easy pie” is what makes them so appealing to the masses. No transferring of dough, no crimping, no perfection needed.

You may have noticed that I’ve started including weight measures wherever possible. You may have even been a little annoyed by this practice (as I once was).
