12 Yummy Gluten Free Holiday Pies!


Holidays seem to be the hardest time for anyone eating gluten free, but no worries – I assure you that your meals can still be tasty and full of variety! This collection of 12 Yummy Gluten Free Pie Recipes are part of my 144 Gluten Free Mix and Match Holiday Guide, coming soon…

Recipe Allergy Key:

  • GF = Gluten Free
  • *GF = Original Recipe requires modifications to be Gluten Free – don’t worry I provide the necessary changes!
  • DF = Dairy Free
  • EF = Egg Free
  • SF = Soy Free
  • V = Vegetarian

While I have tried to eliminate or identify all potentially gluten-containing ingredients, I may have missed some. If you are unsure if an ingredient or product contains gluten, please check the label.

I’ve also created a Pinterest board featuring these 12 pie recipes. Enjoy!

We all love pumpkin pie in this house. Being dairy and refined sugar free is a healthy, added bonus. But, I must admit, it’s the picture of the little munchkins that lured me into this page 🙂  GET THE RECIPE

3. Peanut Butter Pie

Confession. I can (and have) eaten peanut butter pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All in the same day. I can’t help it. Peanut butter pie is addictive! Try these gluten free sandwich cookies for the crust. If you add the mini peanut butter cups, check the label first. Some are gluten-free but some aren’t. GET THE RECIPE

4. Apple Perishky (Pie By The Yard)

What a great idea! Pie by the yard. Add this to my list of “Wish I had thought of it”. If your gluten-free crust crumbles, just squish it back together and keep moving along. I have yet to meet a person that will turn down a pie just because the crust is a little “rustic.” GET THE RECIPE

5. Coconut Cream Pie (Gluten and Dairy Free)

I love coconut cream pie. LOVE. I also love my stash of Mason jars and these little pies look so cute in them! Plus, if anyone makes excuses as to why that can’t come to Christmas dinner, you can bribe them with “Everyone who shows up gets their very own pie!” Although the recipe is no-bake, it’s NOT no cook, so plan ahead. The custard gets cooked on the stovetop and then chilled. Try Schar gluten free shortbread cookies for the crust. GET THE RECIPE

7. Blueberry Pie

Blueberries are not just tasty, they’re extremely healthy. Plus, and I may have mentioned this like a million times, but I have a bad memory so I’m posting again, “Michigan is the number one state in highbush blueberry production“. My dad is addicted to blueberries, he planted them all over his back yard. We eat a LOT of blueberries, especially in pie form!  GET THE RECIPE

8. Best Pecan Pie Ever, NO grain, gluten, refined sugar, dairy, or soy!

All these pies are making me so hungry. Oh, I love my pecan pie. Being gluten-free and refined sugar free makes it extra special. Don’t forget, nuts are one of those super-brain-boosting foods, so don’t pass-up the pie 😉 GET THE RECIPE

9. Luscious Lemon Tarts (gluten and grain free, paleo)

These little tarts are pretty enough to give as gifts. Who wouldn’t love a little homemade, lemon pie?! GET THE RECIPE

10. Flaky All-Butter Gluten-Free Pie Dough

I use butter for all my gluten-free pie crusts. It seems to hold them together well, while baking-up nice & flaky. Most people will never even know it’s GF if you don’t tell them. GET THE RECIPE

11. Egg Nog Cheesecake

Eggnog in a cheesecake? Gimme! I use Kinnkinnick graham crackers for all my recipes, even s’mores. They’re the best gluten-free graham cracker I have found yet. Be careful which brand of eggnog you buy, some are loaded with bizarre fillers & thickeners. GET THE RECIPE

12. Biscoff Pie with Maple Whiskey Mallow Fluff

OK, you know I like booze in my pies. And cupcakes. And pork chops. Don’t let the idea of whiskey in a pie drive you away. Any pure vanilla extract contains alcohol. Plus, if you compare the price of a bottle of whiskey to a bottle of vanilla extract, you will see why I go for the whiskey every time. The Biscoff spread does contain wheat because it has crushed-up cookies in it. Use your favorite nut butter and crush-up a few gluten free cookies. Good to go. GET THE RECIPE
