Although pumpkin pie is a seasonal favourite, there are a lot of people who don’t love it. That said, there’s no sense getting stuck in a year-after-year trend of relying on the pie recipe. There are so many other amazing flavours you can work into a pie, from tart rhubarb to classic apple to tangy mincemeat. Here are five recipes to make your new holiday season go-to.
1. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
For those who didn’t grow up eating this pie, it might sound a little odd. But combining the sweetness of strawberries with the sourness of rhubarb creates an amazing flavour. Plus, the lattice work on top of this recipe is so easy to pull off, but looks like a million bucks.

2. Chocolate Pecan Pie
Expecting a dinner guest who you know prefers cake over pie? This is the perfect cake-adjacent alternative, thanks to the chocolate, butter, and pecans. It’s also a super speedy dessert to throw together, and aside from the pecans, you should already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen.

It’s perfect if you’re a cheesecake lover, and even better if you don’t like using an oven, because this one is no-bake. Another great recipe if you need to throw a dessert together in a pinch.

Even though it’s a classic, there’s a secret you might not know: the best apple pies are made with an assortment of apples, from Granny Smith to Cortland to Empire. Mix it up when you attempt this recipe and taste the results for yourself.

5. Mincemeat Pie
Despite the name, this pie contains zero meat. Mincemeat is actually a combination of dried fruit, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. It creates a kind of meat-like flavour, but still fits the bill of a fruit pie. You might be surprised by how much you like it.
