Look, we're sure your grandma makes an absolutely kick-ass Thanksgiving pumpkin or apple pie. We just need you to stop everything you're doing right now and look at the masterpieces this woman from Seattle is baking, though.

Lauren Ko has only been in the pie biz for a little over a year, but you'd never be able to tell by looking at what's coming out of the oven at her house. Her desserts are so intricate and artistic, it's hard to imagine digging a serving knife into that beautifully-latticed crust or delicately-arranged fruit filling. Her Instagram page has blown up as a result of her culinary adventures, and she now boasts a following of more than 68 thousand.

"I usually have some nebulous idea in my head for design and then just improvise as I go along, depending on how well the dough or fruit cooperates with my vision. My final products are generally happy accidents, which is why I'm especially stunned by the feedback," Ko told Buzzfeed News.

Scroll down to get inspired, though we can't even begin to imagine how long it would take one of us lazy pandas to make something this extra.
