Blackberry Pie

While this pie is a favorite in Washington state, it is also a classic across the country. The cut-out crusts update the look of the old standard, but the taste is just as sweet, tart and velvety as you remember.

Get the Recipe: Blackberry Pie

The Best Lemon Meringue Pie

It's the stuff of dreams: a classic sweet and tart dessert with a foolproof meringue topping that won't weep! We use mostly butter in our from-scratch pie dough, but add a little vegetable shortening as well — we found that this combination creates a crust that is both tender and flaky.

Get the Recipe: The Best Lemon Meringue Pie

Three-Flavor Diner Pie

Why settle for one kind of pie when you can have three? In this showstopper, creamy banana, peanut butter and chocolate puddings are kept separate by chocolate cookie walls so you get all the flavors in one beautiful slice.

Get the Recipe: Buttermilk Pie

Deep-Dish Vegan Apple Pie

Extra-virgin coconut oil is a great substitute for butter in both the pie dough and the apple filling to make this all-American fruit pie vegan-friendly. We use a mix of apples for the filling: The Golden Delicious keep their shape and are a nice contrast to the soft McIntoshes, and the Granny Smiths give a nice tartness.

Get the Recipe: Deep-Dish Vegan Apple Pie

Nectarine-Raspberry Slab Pie

Baking this free-form pie (it's technically an oversized hand pie) on a preheated baking sheet or pizza stone helps make the bottom crust extra-crisp and flaky. Play with your fruits and swap in peaches or blackberries if you'd like.

Get the Recipe: Nectarine-Raspberry Slab Pie

The Best Key Lime Pie

A Floridian classic, this bright, creamy and tart dessert is so simple to make it will become a regular at your summer get togethers. Key lime juice is the star of this pie, adding a slightly more floral note than regular limes. But not to worry if you can't find fresh Key limes or the bottled juice — you can use standard limes with equally delicious results.

Get the Recipe: The Best Key Lime Pie

Pretzel-Crust Cherry Chocolate Pie

You get a hefty dose of chocolate in this sweet-and-savory pie thanks to a layer of chocolate-covered pretzels that lines the bottom. A baking soda wash gives the crust a pretzely tang.

Try substituting your favorite liqueur in place of the water or coffee when you’re making this decadent chocolate pie. Kahlua, Chambord and Grand Marnier are all great choices.

Get the Recipe: Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream Pie

Dutch Apple Pie

There may never be an answer to what a true Dutch apple pie is. Some recipes add cream to the filling. Some call for making a deep-dish pie with a lattice top, and others top it with streusel. After a visit to a Pennsylvania Dutch diner, we decided to go with the streusel for a sweet and crunchy topping.

Get the Recipe: Dutch Apple Pie

The Best Apple Pie

We love using a variety of apples in our pie; it adds both flavor and texture and makes every bite a little different. Vodka in the pie crust makes the dough easier to work with, and since the alcohol burns off during baking, it doesn't impart any flavor. But feel free to use bourbon or apple brandy instead to complement the filling.

Get the Recipe: The Best Apple Pie

Slab pies are perfect when you’re hosting and need a lot of servings. They’re just as easy to make as their round counterparts but can feed up to twice as many people.

Rhubarb Custard Pie

Rhubarb, technically a vegetable, is known for its very tart flavor and the fact that only the stalks are edible. There are many varieties of rhubarb which account for how the stalks vary in color from a deep red to a pale green. Although the flavor is delicious on all kinds, this pie looks prettiest with the red-stalked varieties. Look for thinner stalks, they will be more tender and less fibrous than thicker stalks.

Get the Recipe: Rhubarb Custard Pie

The easiest way to put a spin on coconut custard pie? Bring another tropical flavor to the party! We like lime — it just tart enough to give the pie a sweet and refreshing flavor.

Get the Recipe: Apple-Berry Twist Pie

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

We use a few vegan-friendly stand-ins for this can't-believe-it's-vegan pie. Unrefined coconut oil provides a flaky, buttery texture for the crust, and silken tofu lends creaminess to the filling.

Get the Recipe: Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Pecan Pie

This classic pecan pie is spike with a little splash of bourbon — to really bring out the sweet and nutty flavors in the filling. Baked in a buttery homemade crust, this pie is sure to become one of your go-tos for fall holidays and winter weekends.

Get the Recipe: Apple Cranberry Pie

Our version of this classic pie has all the chocolate flavor you’d expect. We use it in the crust and the filling. We even drizzle chocolate sauce over the top of the finished pie!

Get the Recipe: Mississippi Mud Pie

Ever wondered how bakery pies get their crackled sugar crust? The technique is surprisingly simple — just brush your pie with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar before baking.

Get the Recipe: Sour Cherry–Apple Pie

Coconut Matcha-Cream Pie

Matcha tea adds a shocking green color and delightful floral notes to a classic coconut cream pie filling made with coconut milk and chewy flakes of coconut meat. The tropical sweetness of the custard is the perfect foil for the tea's herbal bite.
