This traditional pumpkin pie recipe (which is easy, thanks to canned pumpkin) is a tried-and-true crowd-pleaser.
Mile-High Apple Pie
This mega-sized pie isn’t just about looks — it’s packed with fall flavor, thanks to two types of apples and a hidden layer of marzipan filling.
Maple Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet potato pie will never be the same: Here, the basic filling gets kicked up with maple syrup, bourbon and a few grinds of black pepper.
Hazelnut and Chocolate Pie
Using the traditional Italian combination of chocolate and hazelnuts, Giada De Laurentiis’ pie has the crisp, crackly crust of a brownie and the dense, gooey center of a tart.
Four and Twenty Blackbirds Salted Caramel Apple Pie
This sister-run bakery has cornered the market on pies in certain parts of New York City. This layered apple pie has garnered legendary status and is the stuff of holiday dreams.
Momofuku Milk Bar Crack Pie
Aptly named for its undeniably addictive quality, this crack pie starts with a crumbly oat cookie crust that holds the buttery, smooth brown sugar filling. It's so intensely rich that you won't dare share a slice.
Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie with Ginger Cream
The addition of gingersnap cookies gives pumpkin a little kick and the just-ripe banana lends extra sweetness. P.S. Don't scrimp on the ginger whipped cream; it brings everything together for a double hit of gingery goodness.
