It goes without saying that traditional autumn activities are something special. Hopefully, trying out fall pie recipes is at the top of your list of things to do this year. This is a classic way to enjoy the season’s best flavors while pleasing your sweet tooth. Not much can beat the tastiness of a homemade pie, after all.
Personally, I love the versatility of autumn pies. You can make a savory pie recipe by focusing on ingredients like butternut squash and rosemary. Alternatively, you can sweeten things up by using apples, maple syrup, and chocolate. Nuttier elements like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice are amazing for emphasizing wonderful autumn vibes.
To top it off, baking pies gives you the perfect reason to visit your local orchard or farm. If you do not have one nearby, consider traveling to another town or state. This type of trip offers you the chance to soak up the crisp autumn air while enjoying views of gorgeous fall foliage. By the time you leave, you will have fresh apples, pears, and pumpkins to use in your next pie. You might even be lucky enough to find local honey or maple syrup, too. Keep reading for 21 autumn pie recipes to help you get the most out of this glorious season.
