Beyond Apple: 7 Other Lovely Fall Pies to Make Right Now

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Apple pie is one of the quintessential signifiers that fall has arrived. You start craving soups, hot tea, and a warmly-spiced slice of apple pie. But before you set your sights unwaveringly on your favorite recipe, there are other early fall pies that deserve a little attention, too.

Depending on where you live, you can still find plenty of plums and raspberries in markets right now, and I personally think a gingery pear pie rivals apple any day. Experimenting with creamy ricotta fillings or fall-inspired cheesecakes? Yes, please. So before we all jump head-first into pumpkin desserts, I propose we take a moment to use up all of that of-the-moment fruit and look beyond apple, if just for a moment.
