31 Delicious Pies for Pi Day
Caramel Cream Pie with Crispy Rice Topping

Mountain Rose Apple Pie
Rebecca Masson of Houston’s Fluff Bake Bar tops her dense and delicious apple pie with a thick layer of crisp, buttery crumble.
Salted Caramel Pie
For this easy caramel pie, the filling is sweetened condensed milk sprinkled lightly with sea salt and baked until thick and gooey, then chilled in a simple graham cracker crust.
Lattice crust is perfect for this cherry, raspberry and blueberry pie.
Flaky Pear Pie
Dulce de leche, bananas and a thin layer of chocolate make this decadent banoffee (banana-toffee) pie from baker and cookbook author Kamran Siddiqi a standout.
Deep Dish Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie
This strawberry rhubarb pie recipe is classic and perfectly tart-sweet. The dough can be made with just butter, but swapping in some lard yields an even flakier crust.
Chocolate Cream Pie
Coconut Custard Pie
Smooth and sweet, this coconut pie is comforting as ever. And it just takes 30 active minutes to make.
Spiced Apple Pie with Cheddar Crust
Chef Marcus Samuelsson updates the apple pie–cheddar combo by hiding the cheese in the flaky crust. The filling is tangy and assertively spiced; Samuelsson includes cardamom, a common sweet seasoning in his native Sweden.
Pumpkin Cream Pie in a Chocolate Crust
Georgia Peach Pie
When you slice into this delicious pie, don't be surprised by the gap between the filling and the top crust. This happens when a pie is baked at high heat because the crust sets before the fruit in the filling has cooked down.
Mom’s Mincemeat Pie
Chef Grant Achatz balances the spicy-sweet fruit filling in his mincemeat pie with rum and brandy; a dollop of crème fraîche would be unorthodox but excellent.
Deep-Dish Caramel Apple Pie
Brown Butter Pecan Pie with Espresso Dates
Lemon Meringue Pie
A homemade version of creamy sweetened condensed milk gives the tart lemon custard in this pie an especially luscious texture and flavor. The billowy Italian meringue topping browns beautifully under the broiler if you don't have a torch on hand.
Passion Fruit Ice Cream Pie with Ginger Crust
This isn't the kind of ice cream pie you'd make for a kiddie birthday party. Instead of a plain cookie crust, this is a crispy, chewy one with crumbled gingersnaps, dried pineapple and candied ginger.
Butterscotch Mousse Pie
With a butterscotch pie base topped with a homemade vanilla cream, all you'll hear will be sighs of dessert-filled satisfaction.
Banana Cream Pie
Coconut Cream Pie
Blueberry Pie with Rye Crust
This sensational blueberry pie has small circles cut out of the rye crust, which not only looks dramatic but also allows moisture to evaporate from the fruit filling as it cooks, deepening the flavor.
Chess Pie with Crème Fraîche and Vanilla
Southerners love chess pie for its sweet and buttery custard filling. In this version, crème fraîche adds a mellow tang and vanilla bean gives the sweetness some character.
Old-Fashioned Apple Pie
This is a purist’s pie that tastes of nothing but apples, with just a hint of spice and butter.
This pie, which combines honey and dried lavender in a silky filling, topped with crunchy sea salt, is best with a mild-tasting honey such as clover, which really lets the lavender shine.
