Did you know that February is recognized as Great American Pie Month? This surprised us too. But, this gives us a great excuse to bake and devour some delicious pies. In case you love trying to new things, especially when it comes to baking, try one or more of these unique pie recipes.

  • Apple Pie with Cheddar Cheese Crust. You probably know some people who like to put a slice of cheese on top of their apple pie. Well, this recipe just incorporates the cheese into the crust.
  • Schadenfreude Pie. Schadenfreude is a feeling of joy you get when others suffer. When you serve this to your guests, they may suffer from how good this pie is. This dark, rich pie is heavy and best eaten in small slices and pairs well with vanilla ice cream and a large glass of milk.
  • Pink Lemonade Pie. Nothing is happier than a bright pink piece of pie. Mix concentrated lemonade with cream cheese and other delicious ingredients to create this frozen pie delight.
  • Grasshopper Pie. Bring back this vintage classic pie and impress your guests with this minty, creamy dessert. It combines marshmallows and whipped cream with a hint of crème de menthe for a refreshing treat.
