I’m sharing my favorite unique pie recipes. I’ve taken your favorite classic desserts and gave them a unique twist, flavor, or presentation. You’re in for a treat!
Pie is one of my favorite desserts. Over the years, I’ve made many kinds of pie, including some that are a bit unusual. I’ve even had a Year of Pie on Inspired by Charm. Not long ago I shared A Collection of My Favorite Pie Recipes. Today’s post features more of my Creative and Unique Pie Recipes: skillet pies, hand pies, slab pies, and mini pies. Right now, this post offers 10 pie recipes, but I plan to add more as I continue to create one-of-a-kind pies.
Let’s get into these delicious and unique pie recipes!
Skillet Pie Recipes:
If you’re a fan of apple pie but dread making crust, this pie recipe is for you. It uses a tube of pizza dough(!) and precooked apple chunks; all of that is finished off with a delicious crumb topping. This pie may be the best dessert pizza ever!
This is a quick, down-and-dirty, no-fuss blueberry pie recipe that will satisfy your sweet tooth. What makes the pies unique is that they’re baked in single-serving cast iron skillets. Cute and tasty for the win!

Hand Pie Recipes:
If you’re craving the taste of summer, this on-the-go dessert is for you. Rounds of dough are folded over so the edges can be crimped to keep all of the strawberry goodness inside. I used my go-to pie crust to make this pie recipe, but you can opt for a store-bought variety.
Did you know that you can make hand pies in an air fryer? These adorable round pies are filled with a couple of tablespoons of berry jam and some fresh berries. Putting them together is so easy and clean-up is a snap!
I made this fun and flavorful pie by cutting dough in the shape of a cat face. You could use any large cookie cutter that doesn’t have a lot of detail or freehand a simple design. For the filling, I went with mixed fresh berries, but feel free to substitute your favorite fruit to make this pie recipe your own.

Slab Pie Recipes:
To make these beauties, you roll out puff pastry and spread it with a generous filling of apples, dried cranberries, cinnamon, and sugar. Another piece of puff pastry goes on top to seal in all that yumminess. After baking but before slicing, the slab pie is drizzled with a buttery sugar glaze.
This pan pie recipe is an easy and interesting way for you to serve the quintessential fall dessert. Different-sized dough circles complement the modern look of the angular pieces of pumpkin pie. A dollop of whipped cream dusted with cinnamon finishes off each slice.
Mini / Bite-Size Pie Recipes:
With its rich key lime flavor, graham cracker crust, and whipped cream garnish, this mini pie will hit the spot whenever you’re wanting a little sunshine in your life. I used bottled key lime juice, which takes the tedium out of making this unique pie recipe. Because the pies are in jars, they’re also a breeze to pack for your lunch, a picnic, or even an afternoon snack.

Almost anything tastes better when served in a cute jar, and this blueberry creation is no exception. Each little pie is made with a store-bought dough that you fill with a blueberry mixture and top with a star dough cutout. Before going into the oven, the top crust is lightly brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with coarse sugar.
If you’ve been reading IBC for a while, you know about my fondness for peanut butter. (If you love peanut butter as much as I do, check out more of my favorite peanut butter desserts HERE.) This unique pie recipe has a flower-shaped chocolate(!) crust that is baked and then piped with a filling made from PB, cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip. All of that deliciousness is drizzled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with chopped peanuts!
Thanks all … for now! Happy Pie Baking!
