While the popularity of other sweets rise and fall, there’s one iconic dessert that never goes out of fashion: pie. It’s the burger of the dessert world, a true stayer (we’ve also got you covered for America’s best burgers, by the way). But in their pursuit to make the best pies in America, top bakers aren’t just resting on the laurels of the nostalgia that comes with a slice of warm apple pie—they’re gussying up fillings with house-made caramel, fusing classics into delicious new favorites and even giving back to the community. Trail the sweet scent to the bakeshops below for exceptional pies, from the best bakeries in Chicago to the best bakeries in New York and everywhere between. Finishing scoops of ice cream, not included (but highly recommended). Follow Time Out USA on Facebook; sign up for the Time Out USA newsletter
