Are you a woman or a man who does too much? Are you once again going to make the mistake of hand-decorating your gift wrap with a hand-carved potato stamp and homemade inks? Will you polish the floors on your hands and knees like your nana showed you in preparation for the holiday party? Will you don a fancy hat? Then for the love of Christmas, please don't try to bake, too. Angst tastes bitter. Leave the pies to the pros. Please. To make it nice and easy, Michelle Gayer and the nice people at Salty Tart are baking — fast and furiously but also carefully and lovingly — several kinds of pies to serve to those you love on Christmas Eve and Christmas. Pick yours up at Hola Arepa on Monday, Dec. 21, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Here's what's on the roster: 

Meyer Lemon Shaker Pies

Butterscotch Chiffon Pies

Chocolate Peppermint Pies

Apple Hand Pies and Cheesy Potato Hand Pies

Salty Tart said it best themselves: "Be there, or be pie-less." (And nobody likes a pie-less party).
