Pie is a staple around the holidays, but it often gets overlooked other times of the year. It's a rib sticking dessert that appeals to the meat and potatoes kind of valentine who wants a sweet indulgence with plenty of substance. If pie is your guy's idea of a great dessert, it can be an easy prep choice. Nowadays, you can get frozen as well as refrigerated pie crusts that take the angst out baking.

The pie recipes we've selected are either classics or add a quirky twist to varieties you'll recognize. Any one of them is bound to get his attention -- in a good way.
