Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With 12 Dreamy Cream Pies (Recipes)
Would you care for some dessert?
Let's make something silky smooth, sweet and EASY. How about a luscious cream pie? If you've ever had one before, you know how addicting and amazing they are!
If you want to keep things super easy, you can always grab some Cool Whip and a store-bought pie crust for a real cinch of a recipe, or you can spend a few extra minutes crafting an absolute masterpiece. Either way, we see this as a win-win situation.
1. Butterscotch Cream Pie with Gingersnap Crust
We love this easy cookie crust! By the way, if you don't have time to make your own brittle, you can buy it, leave it out, or just use any type of toffee-esque candy you like. The options are limitless!
2. Favorite Banana Cream Pie
You can't go wrong with this classic! If you want it to be nice and rich, swap out the two eggs for four egg yolks, and make sure you give the filling plenty of time to thicken. Delicious!
3. Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie
A little ground red pepper and espresso powder take this chocolate cream pie to new and exciting flavor-packed territory, but if you prefer a more classic version, feel free to omit.
4. Earl Grey Pie
If you are a fan of Earl Grey, you will LOVE this pie, which is complemented perfectly by earthy, bright pistachios and sweet vanilla.
5. Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie
Pretty much all you need to know is in the title. If you're a canned (or fresh) peach addict who goes nuts over summer cobblers, consider branching out to this delectable pie for a welcome change of pace.
6. Grammy’s Lemon Cream Pie
Anything made by Grammy is automatically 10 times better than any other recipe. Sorry, other recipes.
7. Dark Chocolate Stout Cream Pie
The boiled-down beer adds a nice deep, malty, chocolaty complexity to this all-over stupendous pie. Why didn't we think of that?
8. Boston Cream Pie "Pie"
What makes this creamy dessert extra special? It gets topped with chunks of pound cake. It's pretty hard to go wrong with that!
9. No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Pie
Did you say Oreo crust and chocolate cream??? We are so there.
10. Easy Strawberry Cream Pie
If you're looking for a refreshing, fruity dessert to throw together in a matter of minutes, thaw a bag of frozen strawberries, and grab some cookie crumbs, instant pudding mix and cream cheese. Oh, and don't forget the crucial last step, which is to serve it with a tired smile and pretend that you spent HOURS making this thing. Nobody will be able to tell the difference.
11. Nutella Chocolate Cream Pie
We love that the filling and crust come together in minutes and only require a handful of ingredients! Feel free to swap out the hazelnut spread for your favorite smooth peanut butter or cookie butter though, if you're more in that kind of mood.
12. Caramel Cream Pie
We love this super-easy recipe because CARAMEL (hello gorgeous!) and also because it uses a bunch of delicious shortcut ingredients, like marshmallow cream, condensed milk and an easy graham cracker crust. Still tastes like a million bucks though!
