In honor of the 4th of July, we decided to go with an all-American battle this week and nothing is more American than a thick slice of homemade apple pie. (Except maybe for ribs, or hot dogs, or potato salad).

And who else would we turn to for an all-American apple pie battle? Arizona's most popular pie maker, Rock Springs Cafe and Chow Bella's Pie Social 2012 winner for best presentation, Urban Beans.

Can a little Downtown Phoenix coffee shop take down what some Arizonans consider "the best pie ever"? We're about to find out.
