Every Single Pie Recipe You Could Ever Want

Updated October 14, 2019
Cream pies, fruit pies, slab pies—you name the pie, we have a recipe for it. From classic recipes like all-American apple pie and pumpkin pie to creamy banoffee pie, and even some new favorites like mini French silk pies, we can’t get enough of this classic party treat. And thanks to trusty Pillsbury pie crust, making it really is “easy as pie.” You still get a beautiful, buttery, flaky pie crust that’s easy to decorate, but you don’t have to deal with any of the fuss that comes with mixing and rolling the dough from scratch. Now that you have every excuse to put a pie in your face, pick one of these awesome recipes and get baking!

Many beginner bakers are a little intimidated by pie—pies with pretty fluted edges and lattice tops are easy on the eyes, but look like they took a lot of work. Plus, achieving a perfectly golden pie crust can often seem like a challenge as well. But none of this has to be hard! Armed with a few pie crust pro tips, you can have your pie in blue ribbon condition without a lot of baking experience.

First, make sure you are working with your pie crust on a floured surface. If you are cutting pie crust into strips to make a lattice top or are using cookie cutters to cut pretty shapes to put on top of your pie, flour will make the dough much easier to handle.

Second, brush your pie crust with a little bit of milk or egg before baking. This will give your pie crust that warm, golden color. Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the milk or egg. You can also sprinkle a little bit of sugar on top for added texture and sweetness.

Finally, to avoid a burnt pie crust, check your pie after it has been baking in the oven for about 20 minutes. At this point, you can add aluminum foil around the edges of the pie to prevent any excess browning or burning.
