According to a new study (now this is really serious, can't you tell?) conducted by Sheraton Hotels of all folks (they have a pie promotion running), pie is on the brains of Americans. Apple pie, especially.

The Four Points Pie Portrait is a new annual examination of how Americans eat their pie. It's filled with fascinating little tidbits of trivia. For example, according to the research, 47% said that when they thought of pie the word comforting came to mind and 39% said the smell of pie conjures up happy memories.

In terms of flavors, 17% favored apple pie, 11% picked pecan pie, and chocolate and pumpkin pie tied for third with 10% each.

One in 5 even admitted to eating an entire pie by themselves, no flavor specified.
