Cook's Illustrated Fool Proof Crust Recipe
This is really just an excuse to be a bit nerdy and enjoy pie. If you are going to have a great pie you need a great crust. The recipe above is pretty fool proof and (as a mater of chemistry thanks to the vodka) makes a very flaky crisp crust.
As far as which kind of pie to make, do whatever makes you the happiest. Kick ass and have fun. With Winter Storm Stella hitting the northeast, this is a great day to make and eat some pie.
