9 Vegan Pies We Want in Our Faces Right Now

With the official baking season ahead of us, we’re already set for second helpings of these top-notch pies.

Our board shorts and bikinis are ready to be folded and tucked away in a drawer, and we're ready for our big sweaters to emerge from our under-the-bed organizers, because our favorite time of year is finally within reach—the time for pie. Few things signal the festiveness of autumn and the holiday season like baked goods. And whether they’re berry-based, creamy and custardy, or the quintessentially seasonal, there are very few problems that can’t be solved with pie. So bust out your grocery lists, because you’re in for some serious Instagram insPIEration.
 

1. A feat in perfect crust, the only way you could possibly improve upon @studiocapsula_photography’s deep-dish vegan apple is with a big scoop of vanilla coconut milk ice cream and a drizzle of vegan caramel sauce. Excuse while we wipe our chins.
 

2. Who says sugar should get all the fun? @alex_strg’s homemade fennel and tomato pie, made with creamy almond milk-tomato sauce, is a savory slice we wouldn’t turn down for dinner (as long as there’s dessert, too)!
 

3. Seriously, it feels like Chicago-based baker @piepiemydarling is taunting us with this Cookie Monster pie—with its rich chocolate cream topped with ganache, vegan whipped cream, mini chips, and crushed Oreos in a chocolate chip cookie crust. Windy City, here we come!
 

4. We don’t know how @slaveyaterzieva managed to make such a perfectly golden brown, cross-hatched sour cherry pie, but we do know it’d be oh-so-sweet to sneak a slice—just a little one!
 

5. See, when we try to combine zucchini, sweet potato, spinach, vegan chicken, tomatoes, cheese, and cashew pesto, it almost never comes out looking as pretty as @theveganbeachlife’s puff pastry pie. Beach Life, can you therefore please just send one or two of these (a week) to our VegNews headquarters? Please and thank you.
 

6. @happy.yumyum puts a spin on ordinary pumpkin pie by using Japanese pumpkin (otherwise known as kabocha squash), coconut syrup, perilla seeds, rolled oats, coconut oil, and roasted cashews as the topping. Forget tradition—this unique pie has our name written all over it!

7. Famed NYC macaron maker/everything-baker @sweetmaresas’ personal pear pecan frangipane tarts are filled with sweet, almond-based custard-like filling, then topped with sliced glazed pears—for an elegant, jaw-droppingly beautiful pastry you’d expect to find at a French patisserie.
 

8. @soyvegana_jenny’s marvelous vegan pie is made with almond custard cream, delicate pastry crust, and more than 70 fig slices. Go figure!

 

GOUDEN GALETTE! 💛 Prinsjesdag, terwijl Lex en Max 👑 vandaag de Gouden koets verruilen voor een glazen variant, kwam er bij mij toch echt een Gouden Rolls Roys 🚕 uit de oven paraderen over een rode loper. Met twee twinkelende ogen geniet ik van dit kleurrijke tafereel 🎨 waar menig koning of koningin toch wel jaloers op zou zijn! 😉 Deze Gouden Galette spant toch wel de kroon! Wat is deze verwennerij ontzettend lekker! Met enkele voedzame ingrediënten maakte ik deze Kanjer, waar je iedereen mee kan verrassen! Het geheime ingrediënt? De perfecte melen combinatie, aromatische specerijen en de Medjoul dadels zorgen vooreen gebalanceerd geheel. De vulling van frisse mango, bramen en gebroken amandelen maken de Galette helemaal af! 😊🙌🏼 Serieus, ik denk toch wel dat mening Hollands en Argentijns hart hier sneller van gaat kloppen! Durf jij het aan? 😇 Het recept staat nu online! 👆🏻 Ik ga snel aan het werk, er staat weer een drukke dag met de kids op school te popelen! Ik ben er klaar voor! Fijne dag vandaag! 😘 #ohmypie

9. We have @oh.my.pie to thank for this Golden Galette—stuffed with fresh mango, blackberries, crushed almonds, Medjool dates, and gingerbread spice. This glorious pie has us feeling the warmth of summer as we head deeper into fall.
