Do you love pie? Then here are all the pie recipes you need for Pi Day, Thanksgiving, or any other pie baking event.  Sweet and savory, baked and no bake, fruit, chocolate and custard, perfect pie crust recipes — we have them all!  

A collection of the best pie recipes: savory and sweet, fruit, chocolate, and custard, baked and no baked - something for everyone!

Thursday is Pi Day!

As a scientist who also dedicated a yearlong series to pies throughout 2018, you knew there was no way I was going to miss up an opportunity to celebrate, right?

Right.

I love pie.  You (presumably) love pie.  I mean, who doesn’t love pie?  So here’s a round up of a whole bunch of delicious pie recipes, just waiting for your Pi(e) Day celebration!

Because there are so many different types of pie, I’ve divided these lists up into categories: fruit pies (my personal favorite), chocolate pies (my husband’s favorite – probably why there are so many of these on my site!), custard pies, no bake pies, savory pies, and at the end, the most important step: pie crusts!

Seriously, there’s a pie for everyone on this list.  And if your favorite isn’t on here, or there’s a pie you had once and have been dying to replicate, let me know!  I am always looking for more pie recipes to share.

I’m often asked about my favorite pie recipes.  These are all listed below as well, but just in case you’re curious about my tastes: these are my personal favorite pies:

Sweet or savory, baked or no baked, fruit or chocolate or custard, we have you covered.  So get to it — Pi Day awaits!
