A Year of Homemade Pies Recipes for Every Season
I love using seasonal produce because it tends to be at the peak of freshness. Plus, it’s more affordable and leaves less of a carbon footprint than buying out of season.
There is nothing that says traditional American dessert more than a home-baked pie. I have wonderful memories from my childhood of both my mother and grandmother preparing homemade pies.
Of course, I am awful at making my own traditional pie crust but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying them at all. I just use a premade pie crust from the grocery store instead of making my own.
If you like making homemade pie crust, you can certainly do that as well. When I do make my own pie crust, this dough roller makes all the difference.
Best pie recipes for spring
In Vermont, spring means rhubarb so that’s definitely my favorite type of pie in the spring. My rhubarb custard pie is one that I make every year.
Depending on where you live, strawberries may also be in season in the spring. This strawberry pie from Really, Are You Serious? is on my list to try soon.

I’m a big fan of easy pie recipes. As much as I love to cook and bake, I’d prefer not to spend hours in the kitchen making one recipe.

Dessert pie recipes for winter
It’s more difficult to find dessert pie recipes in the winter that focus on seasonal produce because not as much grows in my area.
If you have storage available, you can often use pumpkins, winter squash, and apples that are left from your fall harvest in your homemade pies recipes.
You can also try a few of these seasonal pie recipes. Have you ever tried using a pie bird?
