Chocolate is always requested when it comes to dessert for family gatherings. So it’s probably no surprise that a number of our favorite holiday pies are laden with chocolate.
Pies are not an everyday dessert but, instead, reserved for special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. So it’s best to use a tried and true recipe worthy of a celebration.
There are numerous varieties and flavors of pies, so there will certainly be one that your family will love.
I’m the lone family member who swoons after a bite or two of coconut cream or pecan pie, but I can only rotate those into the mix every few years. Double-crusted fruit pies are crowd-pleasers, too, whether apple, raspberry, or blueberry.
This ice cream pie is perfect for summer holidays and celebrations, though my crew would eat it in the dead of winter! Made with a cookie crumb crust, chocolate ice cream, and a jar of fudge sauce, it’s super easy to throw together! The only hard part is waiting for it to refreeze!
This French Silk Tart with an Oreo crust has the most luscious, silky, and decadent chocolate filling!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Difference Between Pies and Tarts?
Tarts differ from most pies since they traditionally only have a bottom crust, and straight sides and are baked in a tart pan with removable sides. Pie plates have sloped sides and can have a single or double crust. If you’re short on time, a tart is often a speedier alternative!
What are the Types of Pie?
There are one-crust pies, double-crust pies, lattice-topped pies, deep dish pies, cream pies, chiffon pies, hand pies, and no-bake pies.
What are the Types of Pie Filling?
Pies can be filled with fruit, nuts, custard, cream fillings, and even savory fillings like a chicken pot pie.
