Fall in love with these irresistible autumn pies, from Pumpkin Streusel to Pecan Cheesecake.
Maple Pumpkin Pie with a Message
To use up the leftover pumpkin, try adding some to a breakfast smoothie, or stir into pancake batter. Or combine with a splash of half-and-half, season with sage, and toss with pasta.
Double-Crust Apple PieA double crust seals in the apples' natural juices as the pie bakes for full-on apple flavor. Tossing the apples with apple juice keeps them from browning as you peel and slice them, and it adds a boost of apple flavor.
Pumpkin-Pecan Streusel PieCreate the chunky texture by leaving those extra-big blueberry-size pieces in the streusel mix.
Hazelnut, Pecan, and Bourbon Pie
For depth of flavor, Kir Jensen roasts the pecans and hazelnuts before adding them to the filling. She likes to roll her cornmeal pastry extra thick, so it's more substantial.
Warm Apple-Buttermilk Custard PieThis twist on traditional apple pie consistently earns 5-star ratings from our online reviewers. The creamy buttermilk custard makes for truly indulgent apple dessert that's not overly sweet, either. For a flaky piecrust and a crisp streusel, be sure to keep them both chilled until just before baking.
Pumpkin Streusel PieClassic pumpkin pie gets a tasty facelift from a homemade oat-and-walnut streusel topping, while the pastry leaves add great fall flair.
Sweet-Potato Pecan Pie
We adapted this recipe from Devil's Teeth Baking Company to create a border that shows off the bright filling. To completely cover the pie, just double the topping.
Pecan Cheesecake PieWe think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship: crunchy chopped pecans and tangy cheesecake. This 8-ingredient recipe is not only easy to prepare, but also a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
Pear, Walnut, and Maple Syrup PieSweet pears truly shine in fall desserts, and this pie is no exception. Smooth and mild Comice pears are paired with the deep, nutty flavor of toasted walnuts and sweet maple syrup for a wonderful addition to your holiday dessert table.
Cheddar-Apple PieTart and tangy, sweet and spiced, this intensely flavored homemade apple pie is thickly layered into a sharp cheddar cheese-enhanced crust. It's a gluten-free remake of an American classic!

Five-Spice Sweet Potato PieIn this pie, humble sweet potatoes are dressed up with five-spice powder, a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. If you can't find five-spice powder, pumpkin pie spice makes a fine substitute.
Maple-Walnut Cranberry Pie
While the buttery, maple-scented filling is inspired by classic pecan pie, we swap in toasted walnuts and add chopped fresh cranberries for a beautiful pop of color and tart flavor contrast that cuts the sweetness.
Butterscotch Pecan Pie from PieLabThe butterscotch flavor is subtle, adding an interesting twist without overwhelming this Southern classic. And the experts at PieLab have ensured that the filling fits the piecrust perfectly.
Lattice-Top Apple Quince Pie
Portland pasty chef Michelle Vernier cooks the fruit ahead so the pie won't collapse in the oven.
Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding with Bourbon-Pecan Hard Sauce
These creamy pumpkin bread puddings are baked in pie dishes so they're like a hybrid dessert; the lattice top is actually made of strips of butternut squash.
Caramel Apple Pie with Pastry Cutouts
Zoe Nathan of Santa Monica's Huckleberry Bakery tops her pies with a variety of cutout shapes; for this one, you'll need a 2 1/2-in. apple-shaped cookie cutter*.
Our Easiest Pumpkin Pie Ever
TIP: For a crisp crust (no more soggy bottom!), use a metal pie pan and prebake your crust with pie weights.
Turtle Pumpkin Pie
This is pretty much the same as the Kraft Turtle Pumpkin Pie (or the Publix Turtle Pumpkin Pie, depending on where you look).
