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

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

To showcase the very best in cozy fall flavors, this decadent apple pie uses a mix of different varieties such as McIntosh, Cortland, and Granny Smith. A buttery homemade caramel and delicate lattice top crust puts it in the running to be a blue ribbon winner. The pie will need about four hours to chill, so it's best to make this pie the day before or the morning that you need it. 

Cinnamon-Swirl Apple Slab Pie

This fun, cinnamon-scented twist on apple pie can feed a crowd while wow-ing them at the same time. The same homemade pie dough forms both the base crust and the topping—the magic happens when a sweetened cinnamon-butter is spread on half of the dough and rolled up like a log and chilled. Once sliced into swirly rounds, they're shingled on top of the baking sheet of spiced apples and baked until golden brown and bubbly. You can find a step-by-step photo guide to assembling the top crust here

Apple Pecan Pie

This mash-up recipe combines two holiday dessert favorites: apple pie and pecan pie. Delicious on its own, this pie also pairs well with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Bird's-Nest Pudding Pie

We like to think of this dessert as the turducken of pies -- spiced, cranberry-stuffed apples are baked in a pie shell, surrounded by cake batter. It's inspired by the bird's-nest pudding in Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic "Farmer Boy."

Apple Pie Bread Pudding

Day-old brioche works best for soaking up the custard mixture in this hybrid dessert. The sweet-tart apples are a nice counterpoint to the rich pudding.

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.

Double Crust Apple Pie

Rating: 3.5 stars 88
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.

Best Apple Pie

Rating: 3 stars 121
To ace this American tradition, we combine different varietals of apples that each have their own nuanced flavors and textures in the filling for this apple pie. The sublime result is a bold, aromatic filling bubbling inside a golden-brown double crust. This pie takes about an hour of hands on making and an hour to bake but allow time for the apples to meld with the sugar and spices before prepping the filling and making the pie—and allow plenty of time for the pie to cool before slicing and serving.

Mile-High Apple Pie

Rating: 3.5 stars 252
Resist the urge to cut into this pie before it has cooled completely so the juices have time to thicken. This pie tastes even better the day after it has been baked.

Apple-Raspberry Pie

This familiar fruit-filled dessert is a close cousin to classic apple pie. We started with a standard all-butter piecrust and our favorite cooking apples, then added raspberries to the mix. You should be able to find fresh berries in your local market; if not, frozen ones will do.

Apples spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg serve as the filling for this double-crust Thanksgiving pie. A generous sprinkling of sanding sugar before baking makes the top sparkle.
