Rating: 3.44 stars
The words "apple pie" conjure warmth, aroma, taste, and togetherness. This apple pie recipe is filled with Granny Smith apples and is tucked into a buttery pie crust. To make this apple pie recipe even sweeter, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

A cross between pie and a fruit crisp, this dramatic dessert is made with just six common ingredients.

Double Crust Apple Pie

Rating: 3.45 stars
Like a lot of filling to pastry in your apple pie? Try this fall recipe that's filled with three pounds of apples. We like to use an assortment of different varieties such as Granny Smith, Rome, Fuji, and Jonagold.

Meyer-Lemon and Hazelnut Tart

A gluten-free hazelnut crust is teamed with a no-bake lemon curd filling and a toasted meringue topping in this bright, tangy dessert.

Coconut-Key Lime Pie

Rating: 3.85 stars
A classic Key lime pie gets upgraded for the holidays with coconut milk in the filling. The dessert is gilded with toasted shredded coconut sprinkled on top of a billowy whipped cream topping.

Pecan Pie

Rating: 3.73 stars
Rich, buttery, and oh-so-simple, the classic pecan pie has earned its place as a Thanksgiving mainstay. It's also a wonderful choice to make ahead of time since it will need several hours to cool before serving. Dollop with freshly whipped and barely sweetened cream to balance out the bold sweetness of this pie. 

Apple Pie

Rating: 3.62 stars
Baking a pie from scratch takes a little patience, but watching your friends and family enjoy the results makes it all worthwhile.

Rustic Apple Tart

Rating: 3.7 stars
The store-bought puff pastry crust makes prep time shorter and still produces a quality tart.

Black-Bottom Pie

The creamy, bittersweet-chocolate "bottom" of this early-twentieth-century icebox pie rests on a graham cracker crust. The pile of ethereal meringue on top includes a hint of rum.

Gabrielle's Honey Pie

Rating: 3.13 stars
For this pie's crumbly crust, Gabrielle Langholtz uses lard rendered from farm-raised pork. For a similarly memorable pie, use leaf lard; it comes from the fat around the pig's kidneys and is famed for yielding flaky baked goods. You can order it from your local butcher.
