Pi Day — March 14 — might be seen as a silly holiday to some, but we see it as the perfect excuse to bake a pie (although, to be honest, we never really need one). If you’re suddenly in the mood to bake something sweet, we’ve got you covered. These are our 10 most popular pie recipes that span from classic to modern and everything in between.

1. How To Make the Easiest No-Bake Chocolate Cream Pie

This decadent pie gets an extra dose of chocolate, thanks to an Oreo crust. The crust doesn’t even need to be baked, so you can get to eating sooner.

2. Key Lime Pie

This recipe calls for Kermit’s Key Lime Juice, which, after much experimentation, proved to deliver the ultimate results. Luckily it’s easy to buy online.

3. How To Make Kentucky Bourbon and Walnut Pie

One bite of this bourbon-spiked chocolate and walnut pie will leave you swooning. To gild the lily, we spiked the whipped cream with bourbon too.

5. French Silk Pie

French silk pie might sound complicated, but it’s simply a luscious combination of chocolate mousse in a butter pie crust with plenty of whipped cream topping.

6. Classic Blueberry Pie

7. How To Make Banoffee Pie

Banoffee pie is a classic British dessert that consists of a toffee filling and a topping of lots of fresh banana slices — there’s really nothing not to like here.

9. Mini Apple Rose Pies

These mini apple pies are the perfect choice for a potluck or party because no one has to share. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re extra eye-catching.
