24 Favorite Holiday Pie Recipes
Frango Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Pie
This decadent pie is a favorite at Macy's on North State Street in Chicago. Stir in candy from a box of famous Frango Mints (order at Macys.com ), or use solid mint-flavored chocolate candies from the grocery store.
Chocolate Cream Pie
The filling of this chocolate-crust pie is luscious, but not too rich. (Think old-fashioned chocolate pudding.) A bit of sour cream in the whipped topping balances the chocolate perfectly.
Pumpkin Chiffon Pie
A spiced filling, made from whipped cream, creates a lighter-tasting version of traditional pumpkin pie. The gingersnap crust adds more kick than classic crusts.
Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Coconut Pie
This classic pie recipe comes from Miss Aimee B's Tea Room in St. Charles, Missouri.
Chocolate Eggnog Swirl Pie
Serve your Christmas eggnog in this creamy pie, swirled with chocolate. The recipe is from the Elsah Landing Restaurant in historic Elsah, Illinois.
Spiced Cherry Pie
Bring all-time favorite cherry pie into the holidays. Although we tested it with refrigerated piecrust, you can use your own homemade crust, if you like. The filling gets a tasty boost from cinnamon and allspice.
Peppermint Brownie Pie
This rich blend of two favorite holiday flavors -- chocolate and mint -- might start a new dessert tradition in your house. Can't find the mint-flavored pieces? Use regular chocolate chips and add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract to the batter.
Harvest Pie, Sweet Potato Pie and Sweetie Pie
The holiday Pie Fest at Southmoreland on the Plaza, a historic 13-room inn northeast of Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, features several dozen pies including Harvest Pie (front of picture), Sweet Potato Pie (left) and Sweetie Pie (top).
Harvest Pie blends the tastes and aromas of apples, cranberries and baked spices.
Sweet Potato Pie has a soft filling with just a touch of sweetness. Pie lovers with a serious sweet tooth need to try the Sweetie Pie, full of melted chocolate, butterscotch, pecans and coconut.
Caramel-Pecan French Silk Pie
Caramel and pecans form a gooey base for this chocolate dream pie. Make this decadent pie at least a day ahead so it has plenty of time to chill before guests arrive.
Black-Bottom Pecan Pie
Holiday shoppers stop at Miss Aimee B's Tea Room in St. Charles, Missouri, for a slice of this pie, with its gooey brownie layer.
Pecan gets a chewy-good twist in this recipe from an Augusta, Missouri, restaurant.

A crust of crushed chocolate sandwich cookies holds a rich filling of chocolate ice cream, coffee ice cream, whipped cream and flavorings.

Fancy Almond Cream Pie
A vanilla pie gets a holiday makeover with almonds and a cherry garnish.
This gooey-rich pie blends the flavors of walnut, coconut and chocolate.
Cherry pie is the specialty of Betty Reichle, mother of Southmoreland on the Plaza co-owner Mark Reichle. Her filling has a hint of cinnamon and almond. And she weaves a handsome lattice crust on the top. "I make points with Mark when I make this pie," she says.
This creamy rum-spiked yuletide pie makes an impressive holiday-dinner finale.
