The 49 Best Pie Recipes to Make for Every Single Season
Cake is great and ice cream is nice, but there’s one dessert that reigns supreme…in our humble opinion, at least: pie. Why? Because it’s impressive, nostalgic and adaptable to every season. And don’t get us started on the merits of a flaky, buttery crust. The choose-your-own-adventure dessert will always hold a special place in our sugar-obsessed heart, so we wrangled up the 49 best pie recipes—sweet and savory alike—to bake for fall, winter, spring and summer. (Yep, we’d eat pie every day if we could.)
2. Gluten-Free Apple Rose Tart
It’s almost too pretty to eat. (We said almost, didn’t we?)
3. Mini Apple Tarts
The secret to baking these cuties? Mason jar lids instead of a traditional tart pan.
4. Biscuit Dough Pumpkin Hand Pies
No messy slicing, minimal cleanup and zero fuss. We’re in pie heaven.
5. Easy Apple Galette
A galette is basically a freeform pie for lazy bakers. Swoon.
6. Mini Mason Jar Apple Pies
The individual portions are just the right amount, and the whole mason jar packaging is a lot cuter than a standard pie dish.
7. Mini Cranberry Potpies
The only thing better than pie? A pie all to ourselves, of course.
8. Ginger Cherry Pie
Sour cherries work best in this pie (and it’s OK to use frozen or canned), but sweet ones will work in a pinch. Take your time with the gingerbread lattice—it’s worth the wait.
9. Mini Caramel Pecan Pies with Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust
What looks impressive but is actually ready to eat in under an hour? These lil’ guys.
10. Apple Tart with Soft-Pretzel Crust
Save this one for a rainy Saturday. It’s definitely a project, but the results are delish.
11. Fig Tarte Tatin
It all comes together in a single skillet, the most work you’ll have to do is slice some figs, and the results are sticky-sweet dessert bliss.
12. Goat Cheese, Apple and Honey Tarts
Permission to eat itty-bitty pies before you’ve even had dinner, granted.
13. Cinnamon Meringue Pie
Fruit options are sparse in that awkward period between winter and spring, but don’t let that stop you from making a stunning dessert.
14. Banoffee Pie with Honeycomb
Wait, you’ve never heard of banoffee? This magical British dessert (made from bananas, toffee and whipped cream) should be first on your to-bake list.
15. The Ultimate Chicken Potpie
Is it a casserole or a pie? One bite, and it won’t matter what the correct answer is.
16. Brownie Pie
Winter isn’t the most bountiful season for fresh produce, but that’s OK. You always have chocolate to warm your heart.
17. Baklava Pie
Greek baklava is crunchy, gooey, flaky and sweet. This pie is all that and more.
18. Peanut-Butter Freezer Pie
You don’t even have to turn on your oven. And it only requires eight ingredients, almost all of which you probably have on hand.
20. Caramel-Chocolate Macadamia Tart
You can go ahead and file this one under “gorgeous and secretly easy,” thanks to the press-in chocolate crust.
21. Sea Salt Butterscotch Tart
Whoa, this pie is plant-based and gluten-free? Better believe it.
22. Vegan and Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Ginger Tart
With a fudge-like consistency and irresistible combination of rich dark chocolate and zingy ginger, don’t expect any leftovers.
23. Muffin-Tin Lemon Meringue Tarts
Fruit might be sparse during the colder months, but did you know it’s actually when lemons are in-season? Take advantage with these tart tarts. (Heh.)
24. Neapolitan Pie
This pie looks really simple at first glance. But slice in and you’ll reveal a trifecta of custard goodness.
25. Savory Breakfast Pie with Bacon Lattice Crust
This one’s best served with a few Bloody Marys on the side.
26. Banana Tarte Tatin
Tarte tatins are traditionally made with apples. But we love breaking tradition (and we also love caramelized bananas).
27. Chocolate-Caramel Pretzel Tart
This tart has a secret. The crust is made from crushed up pretzels for a treat that’s as easy to make as it is to eat.
28. Beet and Goat Cheese Tart
Use store-bought puff pastry and the whole thing will be ready to serve in about an hour.
29. Chocolate-Chip Cookie Tart with Chocolate Ganache
This recipe combines our two passions (chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, of course) into one seriously decadent dessert. Add a swoop of whipped cream on top and it’s like sliceable milk and cookies.
30. Asparagus, Pea and Ricotta Tarts
This begins with store-bought dough and the first green produce from the market, and ends with you enjoying every last crumb.
32. Strawberry Pie with Strawberry Crust
If there’s a pie destined to grace your Instagram feed, it’s this one. Even better, the crust is dyed with actual fruit instead of food coloring.
33. Mini Strawberry Ice-Cream Pies
This looks fancy, like it took a lot of effort. But all you have to do is roast strawberries, crush graham crackers and add a scoop of ice cream.
34. Whole-Wheat Feta Tart with Caramelized Onions and Herbs
Gather up all the fresh herbs you can find and toss them with a bunch of feta for this savory stunner. Serve it with a side salad and dinner is done. (Easy, right?)
35. No-Bake Coconut Cream Pie
This tastes like a tropical vacation but you don’t have to leave your kitchen or heat up the oven.
36. Key Lime Pie with Coconut and White Chocolate
The ideal key lime pie nails the sugar-to-lime-juice ratio, so it’s not too sweet and just tart enough to make your mouth pucker. Like this recipe, for example.
37. Berry Galette
Sure, you could add those fresh berries to your oatmeal or a smoothie…but you could also do better. And by that, we mean pile them into a pie crust (homemade or not) and bake until juicy.
38. Cherry Slab Pie
Behold, the slab pie. It’s the ultimate way to serve pie for a crowd, and it happens to have our ideal ratio of crust to filling.
39. Lemon Pie with Blueberry Meringue
Come on, look how pretty it is. You know you want to make it.
40. Blueberry Crumble Pie
When life hands you copious amounts of blueberries, there’s only one thing to do.
41. Zucchini Ricotta Galette
Same goes for zucchini.
42. Mini Peach Tarts with Goat Cheese and Honey
When we’re not eating fresh peaches straight over the sink with juice dribbling down our wrists, we’re probably putting them in these sweet and spicy tartlets.
43. Cherry Tomato Galette
If you thought you loved pizza, wait ’til you try this guy.
44. Everything Bagel Tomato Galettes
We’d choose this over a bagel any day. Is it brunch yet?
45. Gluten-Free Pistachio Apricot Tart
Why should gluten eaters have all the fun? This one is worth waiting for peak apricot season.
46. Puff-Pastry Plum and Thyme Galette
Galettes are easy enough to make as-is, but add a skillet to the mix and they’re even simpler.
47. Mini Apricot Meringue Pies
If you want to go in for seconds, your secret’s safe with us. They are mini, after all.
48. Vegan and Gluten-Free Apple Blackberry Crumble Tart
You could use any fruit to fill this almond and pine nut crust, but apples and blackberries are a nice mix of late summer and early fall.
