Pie is one of the most versatile desserts you can have in your repertoire – once you’ve mastered the basics of a flaky pie crust, you can fill it with virtually anything in your kitchen and it will be delicious. Try one of these autumnal pies this fall!
All-Butter Pie Crust
The key to a delicious pie lies in the crust, specifically an all-butter pie crust. This recipe from Alison Roman and Bon Appetit comes out well every time and makes the perfect base for all of your pies. Pro tip: grate your butter using the large side of a box grater. Grating the butter ensures it’s already the perfect size to incorporate into your flour, saving you time and making the dough even easier to work with.
Cranberry Apple Crumble Pie
This pie recipe combines apples, cranberries, pistachios, and ginger into a pie that’s nothing like you’ve ever tasted before. Plus, the crumble on top saves you from making a lattice top and adds a sweet, crunchy depth to the dish.
Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
If you’ve never had pumpkin and chocolate in a dessert, this decadent pie is the perfect introduction to this heavenly pairing. For an extra depth of flavor, add a little flaky salt such as Maldon to the top of your finished pie.
Pumpkin Pie With Speculoos Cookie Crust
This insanely delicious twist on classic pumpkin pie uses the “cookie butter cookies” for a crust and swirls in vanilla bean crème fraîche for pumpkin pie like you’ve never had it before.
Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie
Another take on pumpkin pie, this recipe uses gingersnap cookies for the crust and tops the whole thing off with candied pumpkin seeds. Want to take a pumpkin pie to the next level? Make homemade whipped cream with maple syrup instead of sugar to top your pies!
Maple Apple Pie
Maple syrup in the filling and a walnut-crumble topping offers a unique twist on this fall classic. Since you want the maple syrup flavor to be prominent, be sure to use good-quality real maple syrup in this pie.
