Hope you like whipped cream! A Family Feast’s white pie employs the pillowy topping to cut through some of the pie filling’s sweetness. It also happens to look like a mountain of fluffy snow … how festive!
This Grandbaby Cakes recipe features just a whisper of cooling mint to complement the rich chocolate filling. To quickly and effectively crush your peppermint garnish, put peppermints in a thick sealable plastic bag, wrap the sealed bag in a kitchen towel, and smash the towel-wrapped bag with a chicken tenderizer until the mints are broken into small pieces. Make sure there’s no air in the bag before you begin!

This no-bake recipe from Love from the Oven is a great choice for last-minute holiday gatherings. It’s also ideal for serving alongside Christmas dinner when your oven is already occupied. Don’t forget to dust the pie with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.
This Barefeet in the Kitchen creation is a study in textures, from the crackly sugar crust on the bottom to the juicy cranberries in the center and the silky ice cream on top. Thanks to its rustic nature, this pie is also quite versatile—use fresh or frozen cranberries, gluten-free or all-purpose flour, and top with any flavor of ice cream that suits you.
