    National Pie Day is coming up on January 23rd! I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any excuse I can get to make and eat some of my favorite pies.

    While pie day may be focused on eating pies as desserts, don’t forget that you can also eat pies like shepherd’s pie on pie day and rightly say you ate pie for a meal.

    Berry Pie

    However, if you have a sweet tooth and you’re looking for pie recipes for desserts, here are a few to get you started and help you celebrate.

    Amazing Apple Pie

    This apple pie is my go-to, because it always turns out flavorful and delightful. Plus, apple pie is a classic!


    • Pillsbury Premade Refrigerated Pie Crust (1)
    • 1 Cup Sugar
    • ⅓ Cup Flour
    • 1 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
    • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
    • ⅛ Teaspoon Salt
    • 8 Thinly Sliced Granny Smith Apples

    Pie Topping:

    • 1 CupFlour
    • ½ Cup Firm Margarine or Butter
    • ½ Cup Packed Brown Sugar


    1. Preheat the oven to 425°.
    2. Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Then, stir in thinly sliced apples (without skin).
    3. Put pastry on a 10 inch pie plate. Fill in the apple mixture till it is close to overflowing.
    4. Mix up the pie topping with the flour, margarine/butter, and brown sugar until it is crumbly. Carefully top your pie with the mixture.
    5. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cover with aluminum foil for the last ten minutes to prevent burning.

    I love eating this pie while it’s warm, and you can top it with either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Either way, you’ve got yourself a delicious apple pie.

    Old Fashioned Pecan Pie

    Pecan pie

    When I think of the winter months, I often think of pecan cookies and pecan tassies. But of course, there’s an option to make pecan pie too, so it’s a perfect addition to this Pie Day collection.


    • Pillsbury Premade Refrigerated Pie Crust (1)
    • 4 Eggs
    • 1 Tablespoon Whipping Cream
    • 1 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
    • ¾ Cup Light Corn Syrup
    • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (Melted)
    • 2 Tablespoons Grand Marnier Liqueur
    • 1 Teaspoon Orange Extract
    • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
    • 1 ½ Cups Chopped Pecans, Lightly Toasted
    • ⅔ Cup Pecan Halves


    1. Preheat your oven to  350°F.
    2. Place your pie crust in a 9-inch glass pie plate.
    3. In a small bowl, beat one of the eggs and the cream with a whisk. Brush this egg mixture over the edge of the crust.
    4. In a separate medium bowl, beat the remaining three eggs. Stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, liqueur, orange extract, and salt with a whisk.
    5. Stir in the chopped pecans.
    6. Pour the mixture into the crust-lined pie crust. Arrange your pecan halves around the outer edge of the filling.
    7. Bake your pie on a lower rack for about 50-55 minutes or until the filling is set. Allow your pie to completely cool on a cooling rack.

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

    Not all pies need to be baked! Here’s my favorite no-bake chocolate peanut butter pie.


    • 1 9 Inch Graham Cracker Crust
    • 1 3.9 Ounce Box of Instant Chocolate Pudding
    • 1 ¼ Cup Milk
    • ¾ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
    • 1 - 8 Ounce Container Cool Whip
    • Peanut Butter Cups For Topping, Optional


    1. Whisk your pudding mix and milk, then add in your peanut butter. The mixture will be thick.
    2. Fold in your cool whip until the mixture is fully blended.
    3. Pour your mixture into your graham cracker pie crust. Top with chopped peanut butter cups and then put in the fridge. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours in the fridge, or overnight. After it’s set, it’s ready to eat!

    Tip: I sometimes use Kit-Kats instead of peanut butter cups, and it tastes equally good.
