10 Fall Pie Crust Designs

Happy fall y’all! Pie season is officially here. (I personally think it’s pie season, year round…but that’s just me).

If you’re anything like me, you have a lot of pie in your future. Between apple picking, Friendsgiving, and Thanksgiving—your oven is about to be in overdrive.

Which means you need insta-worthy pie crust ideas…naturally. Take a peak at a few of my favorite autumn inspired pie crusts. Hap-pie baking.

For these fun crust designs, you’ll find a few tools very handy:

Fall Banner

Throw some leaves and pumpkins on your pie and top it with an adorable fall banner.

Don’t Stop Be-leaf-in’

No such thing as too many leaves. All you need is a bit of patience and a lot of pie crust dough.

Hap-pie Thankgiving

Puns on pie are always a good idea. Letter cutouts are essential, unless you have the hands of a surgeon.

Pumpkin Toppers

Pumpkin pie may not have a top crust, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a few embellishments. I love these with leaves, pumpkins, and cranberry decorations.

Cheddar Sweet Corn Pie

If you haven’t noticed, I like to put *everything* in a pie pan. Especially things that aren’t conventional pie. (See: tater tots, dirt cup chocolate pudding, & thanksgiving leftovers). Cause honestly, rules were meant for breaking. Plus it’s 10x more fun to eat a pie.

So today I bring you: cheesey corn pie. Essentially a corn casserole, but way more enjoyable because you get to eat it in pie slices. It’s full of cheese, has a little crunch, and a whole lot of deliciousness.

Brunch Tequila Coffee Cocktail

Unless you live under a rock…you know it’s National Coffee Day. Which is great, cause I have a million things to do around the new apartment, and could use the extra caffeine boost today. Pretty sure I’m about to enter Home Goods like a tornado.

And to make the errands a little more enjoyable, I’ve got this coffee cocktail to pair with your brunch. It’s inspired by the most delicious brunch cocktail I’ve ever had at the adorable Rose Café in Venice Beach. Who knew tequila and cold brew we’re such a great pair.

Cold Brew Coffee Pie

Fellow caffeine lovers—today is a monumental day. Pour yourself a big cup cause it’s National Coffee Day. Not sure who made that designation…if it were me, I’d give coffee at least it’s own month. But nevertheless, as loyal coffee fans we can’t miss out on an opportunity to do what we do everyday celebrate coffee.

I’m taking it a step further today (surprise, surprise) and giving you this glorious cold brew coffee pie. Since you’re already drinking your morning cup, you might as well switch it up with an afternoon coffee cocktail too.

Toasted S’mores Pie

It’s the first full week of fall, and it definitely feels like it in Chicago. There’s the slightest chill in the air which has me dreaming of apple cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking.

Just because bonfire season is ending doesn’t mean we have to wait for s’mores until summer. Snuggle up with a cozy sweater and your kitchen torch, cause we’re about to eat s’mores pie all year long.

I’m Back!

I’m baaack.

Summer has been crazy fun & crazy filled so there was less pie baking and more sunscreen wearing, vacation having, and apartment moving. But my hiatus is coming to an end just in time for the sweater wearing, dessert eating days of fall.

While my oven preheats for a few new recipes, I’m going down memory lane with my favorite pies. Follow along on Instagram: @thepieblog
