Whether you’re craving something salty, savory, sweet, or spicy, this collection of winter pies will surely drive your taste buds crazy.

They’re so good, you’ll want a second slice.

1. Peppermint Pie   

Let’s start things off with an easy-peasy peppermint pie.

If you’re in charge of dessert at your office Christmas party but can’t bake to save your life, you have just found the solution.

This peppermint pie has a sweet and crumbly Oreo cookie crust and an irresistible filling made with marshmallows, whipped cream, and peppermint.

It’s just like chocolate peppermint ice cream but in pie form.

Apart from the flavor, this pie also gets an A+ for its pink, holiday look. 

2. Pecan Pie 

Next on this list is an old-fashioned yet timeless pie. Pecan pie is always present at Thanksgiving and Christmas in our household. 

The combination of nutty and salty pecans and sweet, sticky, and buttery syrup creates such a chewy and decadent filling. It’s southern cooking at its best.

It’s holiday-worthy but easy enough to make any day of the year. It’s such a cinch to make that you can even have the kids help out.

3. Cranberry Pie 

Is it a pie or a cake? Who cares?! All that matters is that it’s delicious.

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

This cranberry pie has a crunchy sugar crust at the bottom, a sweet and tart cranberry filling in the middle, and a crumbly and flaky cake on top.

What an outstanding combination of textures and flavors!

Unlike most winter desserts, this pie isn’t overwhelmingly sweet. Expect nothing but a perfect balance of flavors with this one. 

This pie-cake mash-up is so ridiculously delicious, you won’t mind serving it for dessert and breakfast the following morning.

Buttermilk Pie with Lemon

4. Buttermilk Pie 

Buttermilk pie is another timeless classic. With a buttery pie crust and a smooth and creamy custard filling, it’s simple, yet sensational.

With this pie, you won’t get fancy toppings or festive colors. It’s very straightforward – crust and filling, the end. 

Don’t be fooled by its simplicity. This buttermilk pie will blow your tastebuds away with its flaky crust and luscious custard.

5. Snickerdoodle Pie

If you’re a fan of snickerdoodle, you won’t be able to resist the snickerdoodle pie. It has all the flavors of your favorite cookie, but you’ll get more.

With a buttery crust, a creamy custard filling topped with syrup and cinnamon sugar, and a cream cheese glaze to boot, this pie is any snickerdoodle lover’s dream. 

Each component already tastes great on its own, but together they give you an explosion of flavors. It’s truly a slice of heaven.

Chocolate Whipped Pie with Cookie Crumbles

6. Dream Whip Pie  

If you’ve never had or heard of Dream Whip pie before, you’re missing half your life. Let’s remedy that today, shall we?

Dream Whip pie is a simple yet sensational no-bake pie with a graham cracker crust and a fluffy filling made of powdered whipped topping and instant pudding.

Apart from the irresistible taste, this pie gets extra points for being such a cinch to make. Because the ingredients are mostly pre-made, there’s very minimal effort required.

Plus, this pie is a blank canvas dessert, which means you get to add your own spin to it.

Feel free to switch up the pudding flavors and add your toppings of choice!

7. Brownie Pie 

Just by reading its name, I’m already sold. Who says you need to decide between two epic desserts?

If this brownie pie doesn’t impress your family and friends, I don’t know what will.

In this mind-altering pie, instead of the usual fruit or nut filling, you’ll use a brownie batter studded with chocolate chips.

It really couldn’t get any better than that.

8. Chocolate Orange Pie 

I was never a fan of the chocolate-orange combo, but this pie sure changed my mind. It was love at first bite. 

Here’s how it goes down: Oreo cookie crust is filled with creamy orange filling with bits of fresh orange, and topped with a decadent chocolate ganache. 

Believe me, this chocolate orange pie is a game-changer. 

If you’re not convinced yet, this one might do the trick: there’s absolutely zero baking involved.

9. Winter Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie 

Let’s move away from the dessert pies for a moment and focus our attention on this immaculate shepherd’s pie.

This isn’t your average pie, folks. Sure, it also has that creamy mashed potato crust on top. But instead of a meat filling, it’s all-veggie, and it’s all good.

With a medley of vegetables and mushrooms, the filling is so scrumptious, I’ll bet you won’t even miss the meat. 

Pumpkin Pie

10. Pumpkin Pie 

Turkey may be the star of Thanksgiving, but Let’s face it, it’s not a Thanksgiving party without pumpkin pie.

I’m pretty sure you already have a recipe for pumpkin pie, but still, I insist you try this one.

With its smooth and silky, sweet, and mildly spiced pumpkin filling, it’s worthy of any special occasion.

Best of all, it’s a snap to make. You won’t even need to make the crust from scratch!

11. Sweet Potato Pie 

Here’s another Thanksgiving or Christmas must-have.

If you’re a sucker for sweet potatoes, you should definitely bookmark this pie recipe. 

Mashed sweet potatoes mixed with milk and winter spices make up the filling of this holiday treat. It’s smooth, creamy, and sweet with just a touch of spice.

Together with a buttery pie shell, this pie is impossible to say no to. 

12. Cheddar Pear Pie 

Cheese and pears are a great tandem. You can slice them up, put them on a platter, and call it a day.

If you care to make things extra, I suggest you bake this pie.

There’s really something delightful about the combination of sweet and crunchy pears and soft and salty cheddar. 

With a sweet pear pie filling and a crumbly and melty cheese topping, the fact that this pie is ridiculously delicious isn’t surprising.

13. Apple Pie 

The amount of apple pie recipes both online and off is overwhelming. So, mirror, mirror on the wall, which apple pie recipe is the greatest of them all?

After many, many attempts, I deem this one to be the best. I’m floored by how on point the textures and flavors are.

It’s just as good as the one my grandma used to make.

Cheeseburger Pie

14. Cheeseburger Pie 

It may not look like it, but one bite, pie and you’ll clearly be able to tell it’s cheeseburger pie.

Called the “Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie,” this recipe has been around since the 1970s.

First found at the back of the classic Bisquick box, it has been passed on from generation to generation because it’s that delicious.

Filled with ground beef and cheese, this cheeseburger pie/casserole is every child’s dream come true. 

15. Maple Pie

Any Canadian readers out there? This recipe is for you. This maple pie is the stuff of legends.

The filling contains maple syrup, coconut cream, and tapioca flour. It has a soft, gelatinous consistency that goes incredibly well with the crispy pie shell. 

The distinct maple flavor surely hits the spot. You can throw in some crushed pecans into the mix, too, for added crunch.

Chicken Pot Pie

16. Chicken Pot Pie 

This chicken pot pie screams comfort! Loaded with tender chicken, hefty vegetables, and an outrageously creamy sauce, this pie is bursting with flavor, texture, and color.

Apart from the filling, you’ll also love the flaky and buttery bottom and top crust.

Filled with carbs, protein, veggies, and fat, this pie has all the essential elements of a complete meal.

17. Salted Caramel Pie 

I’m such a sucker for salted caramel. Anything with salted caramel is already a winner for me. This pie, though, is next-level amazing.

This pie filling isn’t just about salted caramel, but chocolate, too. In my world, it’s the most epic flavor combination ever. 

A buttery Oreo crust is filled with caramel and drizzled with chocolate ganache on top.

It’s finished off with a sprinkling of sea salt, completing that salted caramel – chocolate combo.

18. Ginger Pear Hand Pies 

Hand pies are incredible… especially these ones. 

Caramelized pears are made even more special with ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. The autumn and winter flavors are strong with this pie!

Encased in buttery, flaky, crusts, these hand pies are definitely the bomb.

Plus, because of their size, they’re easy to enjoy on the go. You’ll definitely want to take them with you wherever you go.

Peanut Butter Pie

19. Peanut Butter Pie 

It’s not just filled with peanut butter, but with cream cheese, too. I think these two make such an excellent pair. They’re meant to be!

This peanut butter pie isn’t only delicious, but easy to put together as well. It’s so scrumptious, it’s hard to believe it only requires six basic ingredients.

It’s also easily customizable. Chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, crushed Oreos, caramel, chocolate syrup – top it however you please.

20. Chocolate Pie 

Calling all vegan chocoholics, this pie is just for you. Rarely will you ever find a vegan chocolate pie that doesn’t taste vegan.

So what are you waiting for? Bookmark this one already.

This chocolate pie is 100% dairy-free, and 100% delicious. With a decadent cookie crust and an even more decadent chocolate filling, this pie is a dream.

Serve this to your non-vegan friends, and I’ll bet you they won’t even be able to tell.

21. Leek Mushroom Pie 

Leeks and mushrooms are not exactly as exciting as chocolate and salted caramel, but they just as much make a good team.

This pie is sinfully creamy and bursting with umami flavors. The mushrooms are earthy and meaty, and the leeks give you that delicious onion goodness.

It also happens to be vegan, which means it’s for everyone to enjoy.

22. Turkey Pot Pie 

Chicken pot pie is great, but turkey pot pie is the perfect way to use up all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving.

It’s a classic recipe but with a terrific Thanksgiving twist.

Say hello to the post-Thanksgiving treat you didn’t think you needed.

A creamy and dreamy turkey and veggie filling is encased in a rich, buttery, and flaky pie crust. The celebration isn’t over just yet! 

23. Pear Galette 

A galette is a flat French pastry with a fruit filling – in this case, pears. It sounds fancy, and it is, but it’s also simple enough to make yourself. 

In fact, it’s a lot easier to make than a classic pie.

With this free-form pie, all you’ll need is to roll the edges of the crust to ensure the pie filling doesn’t fall over. I like to think of it as pizza, but sweet and more loaded.

24. Apple Cranberry Galette 

If you’re not a fan of pears, try this apple cranberry galette, instead.

The sweetness from the apples combined with the tartness of cranberries is divine.

It amazes me how it looks so stunning, it seems like it took hours to prepare. But in truth, all you’ll need is 30 minutes of prep time. The rest is up to the oven.

25. Raisin Pie

If you cringed at the name, I get it. Still, though, give it a chance. You’ll think it’ll disappoint, but it won’t!

In fact, don’t be surprised if your taste buds yearn for more of this raisin pie.

Trust me, I have served it even to the most stubborn raisin hater I know, and they still loved it.

26. Treacle Tart 

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this dessert probably sounds familiar. Treacle tart happens to be Harry’s favorite dessert!

And I completely understand why. This British pie has a buttery shortbread crust filled with a sweet, gooey, and lemony filling.

Treacle, also known as golden syrup, gives it a kind of sweetness you can’t get anywhere else. 

Pro-tip: don’t substitute golden syrup with corn syrup. While they look similar, the taste and consistency aren’t the same.

27. Eggnog Pie 

Can any dessert give you more Christmas vibes than eggnog pie? I don’t think so.

This pie is richness and creaminess overload!

There are no other ingredients apart from the eggnog filling and the graham cracker crust, so the eggnog flavor really shines through.

It’s basic, but it’s also brilliant.

28. Walnut Mincemeat Pie 

This walnut mincemeat pie is an easy, two-step recipe. It doesn’t taste that way, though. 

If you’re not familiar with this British ingredient, mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruits and spices.

Traditionally, the mixture also contained some type of meat – hence the name. But nowadays, most recipes just use beef suet.

Apart from mincemeat, this pie also has chopped walnuts, which add a wonderful crunch to the soft and chewy filling.

29. Tourtiere 

Tour tie what? Tourtiere is a French-Canadian pie that consists of a traditional pie crust and a ground meat filling.

This savory treat uses a variety of meats – from pork and beef to venison.

For this recipe, you’ll use a combination of pork and beef. It’s a fail-proof combo that always yields a rich and flavorful result. 

The filling also contains mashed potatoes, making the tourtiere super hearty and satisfying.

30. Butternut Squash Pie   

Butternut squash is sweeter than pumpkin, so if you’re a sweet tooth, this recipe is for you.

Flavored with brown sugar and cinnamon, this cozy, warming pie is pure winter perfection.

It’s such an easy recipe that calls for basic ingredients.

And because butternut squash is available in most stores, it’s so ideal for spontaneous gatherings.

Whoopie Pies

31. Whoopie Pies

There is a special place in my heart for these whoopie pies. I definitely saved the best for last.

Whoopie pies are made of two soft chocolate sandwiches bound together by a white, pillowy filling. 

It’s called a pie, but it’s really more of a cookie-cake-sandwich combination.

Whatever category it’s under, it really doesn’t matter. All you’ll care about is how ridiculously delicious it is.
