Chocolate Pies for Pie Day

We were just reminded that today is National Pie Day, and since we are still trying to find the perfect chocolate pie we rounded up a few recipes on our must-try list.

From left, Chocolate Cream Pie at Leite's Culinaria. This is one of those ultra-tested recipes from America's Test Kitchen and we're keen to check it out. We're looking for that light, silky texture. Next up: Dark Chocolate And Orange Tart With Toasted Almonds and Bittersweet Chocolate Pudding Pie With Creme Fraiche Topping, both from Epicurious. The second one sounds like an extra helping of chocolate heaven.

Ginger Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust - This favorite pumpkin pie gets much better as it sits; plan for an extra day of fridge time to let the ginger flavor emerge. After two days it's hot with ginger spice!

Abby's Blueberry Pie - For when summer comes round again.
