For a culture that cherishes simplicity, their pies are out of this world. They’re rich, sweet, and mouth-wateringly incredible. 

Perhaps that’s because they also value craftsmanship. When they make something, they want to do it right. With these Amish pie recipes, you’re guaranteed to have foolproof treats.

1. Shoofly Pie

Shoofly pie is such a classic. It combines richness with crumbly perfection. It has a luscious filling with a buttery streusel topping that adds a delightful contrast.

Crafted with tradition and love, every bite resonates with the heartwarming flavors of Pennsylvania Dutch country.

It should be the first on your list to test out if you’ve never tried it. 

2. Amish Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is ooey, gooey, and delicious. I love the salty, nutty crunchiness of the top over the soft, melt-in-your-mouth center.

The rich, buttery crust is incredible, too. Pecan pie is a classic. And this recipe is one of the easiest. 

It uses a handful of common ingredients and not much else. Give it a try if you’re in the mood for something warm and comforting. 

3. Amish Peanut Butter Pie

Amish peanut butter pie is rich, creamy, and delightfully nutty. Every bite is like a shot of peanut butter straight into your veins.

As long as you’re a PB fan, you’ll love it. 

4. Amish Whoopie Pies

Whoopie pies are famous in certain parts of the world, but not everyone has tried one. If you haven’t, think of them like oversized Oreos, only soft and chewy. 

They feature two large, fluffy, cake-like chocolate cookies with a vanilla frosting center. Some people compare them to Moon Pies, but that’s not really accurate. 

They’re much lighter and cakier than Moon Pies. However, the chocolate cookies and vanilla frosting have a similar taste.

5. Amish Sugar Cream Pie

This pie keeps things simple. It includes butter, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and cream. And that’s about it flavor-wise. 

It tastes like eggnog, only in an edible pie form. Don’t let the simplicity of the ingredients fool you, though. This pie is indulgent, super sweet, and unbelievably rich. 

A small slice is all you need!

6. Amish Coconut Cream Pie

Homemade coconut cream pie is one of my all-time favorites. There are plenty of store-bought varieties out there.

But none of them taste as good as the homemade version. It’s a simple recipe. It requires fewer than 10 ingredients, but it packs a punch. 

It’s sweetly tropical, silky smooth, and lusciously creamy. Its flaky crust is the perfect complement to the soft, fluffy filling. 

7. Apple Schnitz Pie

If you want a truly authentic Amish pie, try this recipe for apple schnitz pie. It’s a staple of after-church dinners and hits the table almost weekly in many communities.

The word schnitz simply means “slices.” So, this pie is an apple pie made with sliced apples instead of pie filling or apple chunks. 

Thinly slicing the apples makes them tender, with a slight crunch on the initial bite. With its sweetly tart apple-cinnamon flavor, this pie is perfect for fall and summer. 

8. Amish Oatmeal Pie

These certainly aren’t the oatmeal pies you buy from Little Debbie. This oatmeal pie is 100% homemade and 1,000% fantastic. 

It uses only eight ingredients and takes about 5 minutes of hands-on prep work. After that, the oven does the hard part. It’s sweet, rich, and will remind you of pecan pie without the nuts.

9. Amish Apple Pie

Here’s another fantastic Amish apple pie recipe that everyone should try. This one is for double-crusted apple pie.

It features the winning combination of apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. But honestly, the buttery crust is the real star of the show here. 

10. Amish Brown Sugar Pie

Brown sugar pie is just what is sounds like. It’s a pie flavored with brown sugar and not much else! The filling is simply brown sugar, flour, evaporated milk, butter, and cinnamon. 

Add a topping of heavy cream and powdered sugar, and you’re all set. It’s hard to believe a simple pie tastes so phenomenal. 

11. Amish Chocolate Pie

Calling all chocolate lovers! This silky-smooth chocolate pie has a decadent filling that’ll melt in your mouth. 

You’ll love the rich chocolate, buttery crust, and indulgent whipped cream topping. Everything about this yummy pie screams “over the top!” But that’s okay. 

If we can’t enjoy a slice of pure bliss occasionally, what’s the point of eating?

12. Amish Buttermilk Pie

Amish buttermilk pie is quick, easy, and has been around for decades. The ingredients list is simple: pie crust, sugar, flour, eggs, butter, buttermilk, and lemon extract. 

You probably have everything you need to make it right now. It comes together in 10 minutes but needs another hour to bake. 

It’s the ideal dessert to top off a healthy, hearty dinner. 

13. Impossible Pie

I didn’t understand this pie’s name the first time I made it. After all, it certainly isn’t impossible to make. It’s quite the opposite. 

Do they call it that because it tastes so impossibly good? Or perhaps because it’s so impossibly easy to make? 

Both are true. But that’s not how the pie got its name. Rather, chefs called it the “impossible pie” because it somehow makes its own crust! 

Simply blend all the ingredients together and pour them into a pie dish. As the pie cooks, it makes its own crust surrounding the filling. Cool, right? And just wait until you taste it! 

It’s impossible to stop eating after the first bite.
