- Basic ingredients. These pies don’t call for fancy bells or whistles. You can make most of these recipes with ingredients that are either already in your pantry or easy to come by in stores.
- Pies for every taste. Whether you’re a full-fledged sweet tooth or are after something more classic, there’s a pie recipe here for just about everyone.
What Are the Different Types of Pie Crust?
Before we dive in, let’s talk pie crust real quick. Depending on the type of pie you’re baking, the right crust makes all the difference. Here are some common types of pie crust you’ll find in the recipes below:
- Flaky Pie Crust: This is a no-fail all-purpose flaky pie crust. It’s the perfect recipe for beginners, as it’s made with an egg that helps bind the crust together (no falling apart when you transfer it to the pan), and it makes the softest crust.
- Gluten-Free Pie Crust: Very similar to the above, but made with gluten-free ingredients. This homemade crust is just as soft and buttery, and 100% suitable for gluten-free desserts.
- Graham Cracker Crust: This is a type of pie crust made from crushed-up graham crackers and butter. It’s a popular choice for no-bake pies since there are rarely raw ingredients in a graham cracker crust. For more details, check out my tutorial on How to Make a No-Bake Crust.
- Oreo Pie Crust: A style of pie crust made from crushed Oreo sandwich cookies. Perfect for recipes that call for a bit of fudgy crunch.
More Tips for Making Perfect Pies
Here are some last-minute pie-making tips for the best homemade pies, every time:
- Keep flaky pie crust cold. Whether you’re making your pie crust from scratch or using a refrigerated pie crust from the store, cold is key to a perfect, flaky crust. Keep the pie dough chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
- Fill the pie enough. Raise your hand if you’ve ever poured pie filling into the crust before baking, only to have a skinny pie emerge on the other side. Chances are, you’re not filling – or even overfilling – your pies enough. Most no-bake and top-crust pies can go right up to the brim and then some. The exception to this rule is uncovered pies (i.e. pumpkin pies), which shouldn’t be overfilled as they may bubble over in the oven.
- Use pie weights when par-baking a crust. This is a simple hack for smooth, even crusts without any warping or bubbling. Lay a piece of parchment over the crust before baking, and fill it with either store-bought pie weights, or use dried beans. After the crust is baked, lift out the weighs with the parchment paper.
- Let your pies set completely. This goes for both baked and no-bake pies. As tempting as it is to carve into a freshly made pie, resist. Cutting into a hot or cold pie too early will lead to a big ol’ oozy mess.
