If you are looking for a sure-fire way to make your party a hit, you’ve come to the right place. These pies are the ultimate Christmas treat!

1. Mincemeat Pie

Mincemeat or mince pie is a savory pie hailing from across the pond. It’s a traditional British pie served during the holidays. 

The buttery and flaky crust is filled with a mix of dried fruits and spices and baked to golden perfection.

I’d gladly eat this pie even if it weren’t Christmas.

Fun fact: mince pie goes all the way back to the 13th century, during the time of the Crusaders.

Originally called Christmas pies, they were shaped into ovals to represent the manger that Jesus was born in.

A depiction of the baby Jesus was also placed on top of the pie. 

The filling – a combination of mixed meats, fruits, and spices – represented the gifts Jesus received from the three Magi. 

Centuries later, the pies have gotten smaller, rounder, and sweeter.

2. Pumpkin Pie

If you’re craving a sweet autumn treat, this pumpkin pie is all you need. This pie is proof that nothing beats the classics.

Rich and custardy with a perfect balance of flavors: that’s what you can expect from this pumpkin pie, and more.

The combination of sweet pumpkin puree, ground cinnamon, cloves, and ginger gives such a heartwarming and soul-soothing experience.

Plus, this recipe is insanely easy to make. You need not make the crust from scratch. Store-bought is absolutely fine!

3. Pecan Pie

If you’re looking for the perfect pecan pie recipe, look no further. This is a winner right here!

The crisp crust with an ooey-gooey filling and a toasty pecan topping is just heavenly.

You’ll be surprised at how a simple mixture of sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla creates such complex flavors that complement beautifully with pecans.

This pie also has the flakiest and most buttery crust ever! And that’s no exaggeration.

If you’re making pie, you might as well go through the extra effort of whipping up the crust from scratch. Trust me, it’s worth it.

4. Candy Cane Pie

Candy cane is perhaps the most Christmas-y candy there is, so it only makes sense to serve this pie during the holidays!

This peppermint pie is a certified crowd-pleaser.

How can anyone resist? It has an Oreo crust, sweet cream cheese filling, and a crushed peppermint topping.

What a wonderful explosion of flavors and textures. It’s a new fun take on the classic cheesecake, and I am sold.

And did I mention that this pie requires zero baking? Yep, no need to be an expert baker to nail this one. If I can do it, so can you!

5. Macadamia Coconut Tart

Give your pecan pie a tropical twist! This macadamia coconut tart is ridiculously rich, buttery, and downright addictive.

One spoonful will whisk you away to the tropics.

If you’ve never tried the combination of macadamia nuts and coconuts, now is the time. This pie is every sweet tooth’s dream. 

Crisp and flaky golden crust is filled with a mixture of brown sugar, butter, vanilla, macadamia, and flaked coconut.

The nutty and chewy filling tastes insanely delicious with the buttery crust. It’s so delightful.

6. German Chocolate Pie

German chocolate pie is every chocolate lover’s dream.

Think of it as a hybrid of German chocolate brownie and chocolate pie.

A rich, chewy, and ooey-gooey filling is loaded with toasted pecans and chocolate in a golden crust. I really couldn’t ask for more.

Here’s a fun tidbit: German chocolate cake doesn’t have any German roots at all.

Rather, it was created by an American chocolate maker named Samuel German.

So don’t be fooled by its name. This dessert is 100% American.

7. Treacle Tart

Ever wonder why treacle tart sounds so familiar? Well, if you have read the Harry Potter books, it’s Harry’s favorite dessert!

Treacle tart is a traditional British dessert served during tea time. It consists of a buttery shortbread crust and a lemon-flavored filling.

The base of the filling is made from lemon zest, breadcrumbs, and treacle, hence the name.

Treacle is a sweet and golden syrup made with sugar, water, and citric acid.

Once combined and cooked, the ingredients create a thick, buttery, and caramel-y mixture. 

8. Eggnog Pie

Love eggnog? Then this eggnog pie is a must-try! 

Christmas isn’t complete without eggnog, but why not switch things up a notch?

Elevate the traditional holiday beverage into a lip-smacking, jaw-dropping pie.

Thick and creamy eggnog is nestled on a bed of sweet and buttery graham cracker crust.

Finished off with a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon, this is the ultimate Christmas dessert.

Don’t worry, there’s no extra effort required to make this pie. It’s so easy, you don’t even need to bake it!

Just pour your eggnog mixture into a graham cracker crust and pop it in the freezer.

9. Hazelnut Pie

Attention all Nutella lovers: this pie is for you. Cream cheese and Nutella come together to make one insanely rich, creamy, and nutty pie.

The combination of hazelnut and cream cheese creates such bold and mind-blowing flavors!

Here’s the best part: it’s a no-bake pie! Hurray for hassle-free recipes! 

All you need is to stir together softened cream cheese, Nutella, and powdered sugar, and your filling is done.

Don’t you wish all desserts are just as easy and full of flavor?

10. Salted Caramel Pie

The drool-worthy combination of sweet and salty makes this pie impossible to resist.

Do you want your dessert to be a definite showstopper? Drizzle it with salted caramel.

That’s my strategy, and it always works. Case in point: salted caramel pie.

There is no way you can say no to this pie, and here’s why.

It combines the goodness of chocolate, caramel, and sea salt to make one spectacular confection. It has so many decadent flavors in just one pie.

The Oreo pie crust adds another layer of sweet and buttery flavors, giving you one heavenly treat.

11. Coconut Macaroon Pie

Give your Christmas a tropical flair with this decadent coconut macaroon pie.

Coconut macaroons are rich and buttery bite-sized snacks flavored with shredded coconut.

Now, imagine all that goodness in pie form. That’s what this next dessert is all about.

It has a flaky crust and a rich custard filling loaded with sweet coconut flavor.

The coconut gets toasted as it bakes, giving it a crisp texture and a much deeper flavor. 

Plus, this pie couldn’t be easier to make. The filling comes together in just one bowl, and there’s no need to make the crust from scratch.

12. Lemon Meringue Pie

Sweet, tangy, and velvety custard is set in a crisp and buttery pastry crust and topped with mounds of fluffy meringue.

Lemon meringue pie is a Christmas classic that never fails to disappoint.

It’s perfectly sweet, mildly tangy, and 100% refreshing. With that bright yellow filling, it’s like eating a slice of sunshine.

That golden-brown toasted meringue looks stunning, too!

13. Coffee Pie

Your favorite coffee flavors are infused in this smooth and creamy pie. This coffee pie is the perfect way to start the day.

Rich, creamy, and loaded with just the right coffee flavor, it tastes amazing and smells like heaven, too.

The crust is sublime as well. To me, when it comes to a smooth and creamy filling, you can’t go wrong with a rich and buttery crust. 

Sure, graham cracker works great, but crushed Oreo cookies are even better.

The rich chocolatey flavor just works incredibly well with coffee.

14. Cranberry Pear Pie

Sweet pears and tart cranberries come together to make this irresistible fruity pie.

There’s just something so amazing about the combination of sweet and tangy. It’s the ultimate refreshing flavor!

That’s why pears and cranberries work so well together.

With the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, this pie is not just sweet and tart, but also perfectly spiced. How cozy and warm is that?

Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this cranberry pear pie will bring even more Christmas cheer.

15. Buckeye Pie

Chocolate and peanut butter? Now that’s what I call a match made in heaven.

You’d better make at least two of this pie, because it’s sure to disappear in a snap.

The combination of rich chocolate and sweet and salty peanut butter is simply irresistible.

The filling is so unbelievably good that it doesn’t even matter what crust you use.

Whether it’s store-bought, pre-baked, or made from scratch, it will be fantastic.

16. Turtle Pie

Turtle pie is a classic dessert that’s packed with amazing flavors and complementing textures. It’s so good, one slice won’t be enough.

This pie has a buttery graham cracker crust with a creamy filling topped with pecans, chocolate sauce, and caramel. 

Just imagine all those flavors in one bite. So sinfully delightful!

It’s such a simple pie, to boot. Since you’ll use a graham cracker crust, baking is not required.

The filling only calls for cream cheese, powdered sugar, whipped cream, and chocolate spread.

Once you have all the elements ready, all that’s left is to assemble and chill. It couldn’t get any easier than that.

17. Snickerdoodle Pie

Snickerdoodle pie is just as fun to eat as it is to say.

Is it a cookie, a cake, or a pie? It doesn’t matter! All you need to know is that it’s outrageously delicious.

A super soft and buttery snickerdoodle cookie is topped with a sweet syrup, cinnamon, and cream cheese glaze. It’s Christmas in a pie!

18. Best Black Forest Pie

This is the most dreamy and decadent black forest cake in pie form. Just when I thought black forest cake couldn’t get any better, I tried this pie.

It’s made with fudgy chocolate, sweet cherries, and fluffy whipped cream in a flaky crust. Help! My self-control just got thrown out the window.

19. Rum Raisin Apple Pie

This simple addition transforms the classic apple pie into a classy, boozy, heavenly treat.

The spiked raisins give the apple pie such a beautiful contrast of texture and flavor. It’s crisp, chewy, sweet, and mildly bitter, all in one bite.

Sounds like absolute heaven to me.

20. Dutch Pear & Nutmeg Pie

Sweet, juicy, and perfectly spiced pears are baked in a fresh pie.

Just the thought of eating this pie while I’m curled up on the couch in front of a fire is giving me joy.

Dutch pears and nutmeg together create such warm, cozy autumn flavors.

Add a soft and flaky crust to the equation, and you’ll get one heck of a comforting pie!

21. Rocky Road Pie

If rocky road is your favorite ice cream flavor, you’ll love this pie.

Cocoa powder, cream cheese, and melted chocolate are mixed together to make a super-smooth, rich, and decadent filling. 

The graham cracker crust adds a crisp and buttery contrast to the sinful chocolate.

Covered generously with mini marshmallows and almonds, this rocky road will take you to eternal bliss.

22. Plum Pie

Sweet red plums are flavored with cinnamon in this crisp buttery pie. It’s a simple recipe that yields stunning flavors. 

The cinnamon, sugar, and plums together create a beautiful harmony of flavors.

The rich and buttery crust is the perfect vessel to hold in the crisp and syrupy filling. 

23. Chocolate Brownie Pie

Can’t decide between brownie and pie? Well, who says you can’t have them both?

Brownies are already pretty good on their own. This chocolate brownie pie, though, is heaven-sent.

Combining two well-loved classics, this chocolate brownie pie is a certified hit.

The flaky crust is filled with a sinful brownie batter and loaded with chocolate chips.

It’s a fool-proof recipe to make your Christmas merrier and brighter.

24. Cranberry Orange Custard Pie

This fruity pie combines the goodness of cranberries and oranges. It’s the most refreshing pie that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Buttery crust filled with a sweet and tangy custard. The orange zest and cranberries make this pie extra bright and tangy!

Plus, just look how gorgeous this pie is. The red hue of the cranberries makes it perfect for the holidays.
