I LOVE desserts and am especially fond of homemade pie. In today’s post, I’m featuring A Collection of My Favorite Pie Recipes. Is your mouth watering? Mine is!
Please know that most of these pie recipes can be made with store-bought crust. Because I usually prefer to make my crust from scratch, I’ve also included my go-to pie crust recipe for your convenience.
My Favorite Pie Recipes:
Go-To Pie Crust
I perfected this recipe during IBC’s Year of Pie and have made this crust countless times since then. The recipe calls for butter and Crisco (the best of both worlds) and comes together in a food processor. You’ll find this crust fairly simple and almost foolproof.
Apple Pie with All-Butter Crust
This was the first pie recipe I made during the Year of Pie. What sets this pie apart from other apple pies is the buttery crust. To experience bliss on a plate, serve your slice warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie
My family eats this pie at many gatherings, and it reminds me of my grandparents who grew rhubarb in their garden. The strawberry and rhubarb filling has just the right balance of sweet and tart. For textural interest, there’s a flavorful crumble topping. If you’re a fan of rhubarb, you’re going to enjoy this pie.
Blackberry Pear Pie
This beautiful pie recipe combines the flavors and colors of summer (blackberries) and fall (pears). I used cookie cutters to cut out dough leaves for the top crust, but you can use other shapes or freehand your cutouts. Before going into the oven, everything is brushed with egg and cream and sprinkled with sugar.
Cranberry Pecan Pie
Cranberries are a tasty twist in this pie recipe. They add color and tartness that exquisitely complement the sweetness of the classic pecan filling. Your holiday guests are sure to be impressed with this delicious dessert.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
I can’t seem to get enough of rhubarb desserts. (I even did a rhubarb recipe roundup. You can find that HERE.) In this pie, the pairing of a wide lattice crust with the strawberry-rhubarb inside is hard to beat. I’m certain your family will love this special treat as much as mine does.
More Delicious Pie Recipes
All of these pies are made with alternatives to the standard pie crust. These are great when you’re in the mood for something different.
Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie
You’ll want to bake this pie recipe in a clear glass pan so folks can see the crust. The “cinnamon rolls” are store-bought pie dough that you sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, roll up, slice, and then spread out in the bottom and along the sides of the pan. For the finale, there’s a crumb topping with a swirl of cinnamon icing.
Graham Cracker Cream Pie
True to its name, this pie has a delicious graham cracker crust. It’s filled with vanilla custard and covered with a fluffy meringue that’s browned to perfection. You’ll see and taste why this pie recipe is so popular with my family.
Cinnamon Roll Butternut Squash Pie
This pie recipe has a fancy top crust that will get the attention of your guests. But don’t worry, it’s easy to make. You can use your favorite pumpkin pie filling or if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, do what I did and make a butternut squash filling. I promise everyone will be talking and posting about your pie in a good way!
Blueberry Cream Pie
This is no ordinary blueberry pie. A generous layer of creamy custard is smothered with a homemade filling bursting with blueberries. And the graham cracker crust has a surprise in it-coconut for you and yours to enjoy!
BONUS Pie-Inspired Recipe:
Cinnamon Sugar Pie Crust Cookies
Have you ever wondered what do you with excess pie dough or craved a cookie but had none in the house? Turn that dough into a crunchy cookie by cutting it in strips (or seasonal shapes like I did). Sprinkle the shapes with cinnamon and sugar; then bake.
