15 Best Holiday Pie & Dessert Recipes

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it is officially pie season. So whether you want to stick to the classics or try something a little less traditional, you’ve come to the right place. From pumpkin and apple to cranberry-pear and sweet potato cheesecake, we’ve got you covered. Happy baking!

First up, a vegan version of the quintessential Thanksgiving pie.

1.áVegan Pumpkin Pie

2.áHalf-the-Calories Deep Dish Apple Pie

The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance. Plus, a slice has just half the calories of the standard version. Sweet!

3.áTipsy Maple Pecan Pie

Maple sugar and maple syrup stand in for the standard refined sugar and corn syrup in this tasty recipe. Oh, and then there’s the tipsy part — a splash of bourbon. Cheers.

4.áVegan Pumpkin Streusel Cheesecake

This simple-to-make vegan holiday dessert will satisfy family and friends who love cheesecake with a dense texture and rich pumpkin flavor.

 

5.áRustic Apple Pie with Apricots & Figs

A simple folded-over crust and dried apricots and figs add to the rustic appeal of this simple dessert.

 

6.áVegan Chocolate Cream Pie

Pumpkin and apple tend to get the spotlight during the holidays, but don’t forget the chocolate lovers.

 

7.áSweet Potato Cheesecake with Ginger Pecan Crust

Sweet potato + cheesecake + gingersnap pecan crust = delicious.

 

8.áGingered Cranberry-Pear Cobbler

Cranberries add a festive tartness to this tasty pear cobbler.

 

9.áVegan Pumpkin Cheesecake with Hemp

Hemp seeds are fast becoming one of the most popular healing foods out there and a great option for vegans. With more protein than milk or eggs, hemp contains tons of omega 3 and 6 essential fats. And it makes a mean vegan cheesecake.

 

10.áClassic Sweet Potato Pie

Pumpkin just doesn’t appeal to everyone, so that’s where this alternative traditional holiday treat can come in handy.

 

11.áRaw Vegan Pumpkin Pie

This raw vegan pie tastes exactly like pumpkin — but there’s no pumpkin in it!

 

12.áPersimmon Almond Cake

Just five ingredients are used for this vibrant (flourless) holiday cake (the recipe also links to another tasty option — Clementine Cake).

 

13.áButternut Cheesecake Bars

Why should pumpkin get all of the attention? Give butternut squash a try on the dessert roster with these creamy cheesecake bars.

 

14.áChocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Chocolate and pumpkin lovers can agree on this winning combination.

 

15.áButternut Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Another dessert option for butternut squash? This tasty confection with delicious creamy frosting.
