So here’s the thing about pies. They are incredibly delicious to eat but can be equally intimidating to make. Fear no more! I’ve compiled 7+ easy pie recipes to boost your pie confidence.

Bonus Starter Recipe! No pie can be made without a great crust. Check out the recipe for my All-Butter Blender Pie Crust.

Pies are an incredible way to experiment with different flavors. But the best thing about them to me is their versatility. I can’t think of many things—savory or sweet— that wouldn’t taste good in pie form.

Green tip: Eating seasonally is one of the best (and most delicious) ways to support local and decrease your carbon footprint. Local foods have less associated transportation costs and fuel emissions. Simply put, eating seasonally = less environmental impact.

No matter the season, there’s a pie for that.

Instructions
 

Oreo Pie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt your butter in the microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until it is completely liquified.
  • Add Oreos and melted butter to a blender, and blend on high until Oreos are completely crushed.
  • Transfer Oreo and butter mixture from the blender into a 9-inch pie dish, and use clean hands to press the crust mixture into the pie dish, pinching it up the sides.
  • Bake the crust for 8 minutes, remove from the oven, and place on a cooling rack to cool while you make your chocolate mint pie filling.

Chocolate Mint Pie Filling

  • Bring your oven temperature down to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Heat your cream over a double boiler until it starts to simmer. Remove from heat, and pour into a heat-safe bowl with chocolate chips. Mix until chocolate chips are melted. (Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly smooth, the chocolate chips will continue to melt in the oven!)
  • Put your chocolate and cream mixture in the freezer for about 10 minutes to cool down. Once your chocolate/cream mixture is cool, use a hand mixer to whip it until it starts to bubble.
  • With the hand mixer on low, add your sugar and cocoa powder and continue to mix until your mixture thickens.
  • Fold in peppermint extract and egg with a spatula until pie filling mixture is smooth.
  • Pour your filling into your Oreo pie crust and bake for 40 minutes. Allow to cool and set for about 30 minutes before diving in.

Pro Tips

  • Using a blender is the easiest way to crush your Oreos and mix them with your melted butter. If you don’t want to use a blender, you can also put the Oreos inside a bag and use your rolling pin to crush them!
  • If you don’t have a double-boiler, use a heat-safe glass or stainless steel bowl inside of a larger pot of boiling water.
