When it comes to holiday pies, classic flavors are always appreciated… but fun ones are an easy way to add some spice to the season! We offered some tips on the best ovens for baking holiday dishes – now put them to the sweet treat test with four of our favorite ideas for holiday pies.
When you’re using your Miele or Monogram oven, pumpkin pie is a must for many households during the holidays. We love this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, which includes a surprising secret ingredient: freshly ground black pepper added to the pie filling. Give it a try to give your classic pumpkin pie a unique twist this year!
Another classic choice for holiday pies is boldly nutty pecan – though not if anyone with a tree nut allergy is coming to dinner, of course. The Pioneer Woman has a delectable recipe with her own tweak to the classic style: finely chopping up the pecans.
Blueberry and Cranberry
Cranberries are a traditional accoutrement among holiday pies, but to combine them with blueberries is to take your pie game to the next level! Give it a try with this recipe from Completely Delicious. Why does she love this recipe so much? Because the blueberries soften that classic cranberry tartness – you won’t be surprised to see guests who normally aren’t fond of cranberries grabbing a second slice of this one!
Cheesecake?! It’s true: cheesecake isn’t a pie. It is, however, a very fun spin on the concept of holiday pies – and nothing says “the holidays” quite like gingerbread! We’re intrigued by this recipe from Tastes of Lizzy T, which is a great choice for making ahead of time as cheesecake tends to taste even better after it’s been cooled in the fridge over night.
It’s just not a holiday party without holiday pies crafted in the heart of your home: the kitchen. For even more inspiration for all things connected to the kitchen, stop by your local Monark showroom.
