Autumn is here (in the northern hemisphere at least). As the nights draw in, the temperatures drop and we start thinking about upcoming events such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Bonfire Night, we also begin to crave heartier, more filling food.

Enter the pie. The perfect receptacle for seasonal foods from the harvest, yummies such as pumpkin, apple, pear, fig and cranberry, the humble pie is a tasty and warming desert that is sure to impress your family and guests.

What better way to show off your creative culinary skills than a perfectly patterned pie for Thanksgiving?

This is beautiful. The only problem is that you won't get a lot of pie crust on each slice when eating. Eating the flaky golden pie crust is one of the best parts of eating pie.

It's a pity to finish this awesome work with a "homemade" tag done with an industrial stamp
