I came across Country Living's list of 50 classic All-American pie recipes. They scoured the country looking for the best in regional pies from Shaker Lemon to Chess to Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie. My favorite out of the bunch was the Lemon-Buttermilk Tart.

I've spent quite a bit of time trying to identify the above photo. Here's what I know -- the photo was taken by photographer Lee Balterman in Chicago circa 1955 and the theater across the street is the Oriental Theater on Randolph Street. I think I've managed to narrow down the possibilities to either Thompson's Cafeteria, Holloway House Cafeteria, or maybe even DeMet's Candies. Regardless, it's a great photo. I love the multi-tiered wire pie racks in the background. I'm always so careful when handling pies but check out how carelessly she's stacked the pies on top of one another. I guess when you're baking them by the dozens you spend less time worrying about slight imperfections.
