The controversy all started on Thanksgiving when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders baked a pecan pie.

CNN Political Analyst and White House Correspondent for Urban Radio Networks April Ryan was suspicious:

I am not trying to be funny but folks are already saying #piegate and #fakepie Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it. I am getting the biggest laugh out of this. I am thankful for this laugh on Black Friday! https://t.co/ifeSBlSZW7— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) November 24, 2017
Sanders offered Ryan a pie of her own to prove she baked it herself:
She tweeted the ingredients and the whole baking process, along with a spicy jab at Ryan:
Today was the big day:

Sanders and Ryan are usually at odds, but they shared a nice moment today:
It's nice to see everyone getting along, even if it's just for a few seconds. Merry Christmas!
