Even though we love our traditional holiday pumpkin, apple, and pecan pies, this year it is time to try something new. Here are four easy to make recipes that are both delectably nostalgic and conveniently modern.
A Meatless Mince Pie will replace the carnivorous standard and secretly please your inner vegetarian. It is an easy decision to keep apples on the table and bake a new recipe or two.
Butterscotch Apple Pie will make you question why you never put meringue on top of your apples before now and butterscotch is the perfect mid-century flavor profile to make the combination swoon worthy.
The third pick is Custard Snow Pie. No, you do not need snow as an ingredient, but it sure is tasty to eat by the fire while snows falls outside. A touch of coconut wrapped in creamy vanilla custard and meringue atop a light, flaky crust, this dessert is discreetly elegant with just a touch of sweetness.
The fourth pick is for the chocolate lovers, a classic Chocolate Chiffon Pie with a salted caramel sauce and dark chocolate shavings. Decadent. Recipe Here
If you can’t decide, why not make all four? To make it easy, they all use the same crust recipe. This is the same crust that I was raised eating and am pretty sure I look just as forward to the cinnamon sugar baked trimmings as the pies.
