We all know that pie is one of our greatest inventions as a human race. Even for those of us who don't require dessert after every meal, it can be tough to turn down a slice of pie. Summertime feels like pie season to us, and so in honor of the impending official first day of summer, we'd like to present you with the best pies, ranked in order of excellence.

To clarify, these views do not reflect the whole of HuffPost Taste as a pie-eating collective. My colleagues have already guaranteed that they will have some choice words for me should I not list their favorite pie in the top spot. I'm sure that you, dear readers, will have some as well. Go ahead and let me have it in the comments.
