Pies, both savory and sweet, are popular meals and desserts. We asked around and here are the top 5 most popular pie flavors. Some of them might surprise you!
Pumpkin pie isn’t just delicious, there’s an entire holiday weekend dedicated to eating it. You can buy them in stores year-round or pick up a jar of canned pumpkin and bake one at home. The best addition to pumpkin pie is homemade whipped cream. Yes, it’s easier to buy a can of the stuff, but beating the cream yourself brings you to a whole new level of food satisfaction.
What goes best with vanilla ice cream? Chocolate sauce? Sprinkles? Nope, it’s apple pie. This pie is so popular that there is even a fast-food version of it at MacDonald’s. Almost every diner and restaurant has some version of apple pie on its menu. And in the fall, you can head to an apple orchard to pick your own apples.
If you’re from the southern states, pecan pie probably brings back some fond, childhood memories. This syrupy sweet pie also goes well with ice cream. And if you’re really looking to indulge, heat up a slice in the morning and eat it with your coffee or tea.
Pot Pie (savory)
Pot pies are savory meals found all over the United States and England. The most popular is chicken pot pie, but there are also lots of other versions, such as lamb and beef. For those who like a bit of spice, you can throw a bit of cayenne pepper or hot sauce onto this pie for extra flavor.
Key Lime Pie
Want to balance out all that sugar in your pie? Try a bit of lime juice! Key lime pie is the perfect balance of sweet and sour. It leaves your mouth feeling refreshed and clean. While there are many key lime-flavored candies and snack bars out there, stick to the pie version for the freshest ingredients and most authentic lime taste.
