If you are looking for some ideas to spend time with your best friend, why not embark on a pie baking marathon together! Or just pick one pie recipe that you can make together and then shamelessly binge while watching your favourite TV shows. Better yet, we’ve put together a list of 12 pie recipes that all combine different types of fruits or sweets that were just made to be together, just like you and your best friend!
1. Lemon Raspberry Pie
Are you and your best friend the type who bought sour skittles just to dare each other to eat the mass of sour sugar left at the bottom? If you are a pair of sweet and sour lovers, then this lemon raspberry pie is perfect! It combines a creamy sweet and sour lemon, with juicy raspberries, into a perfectly delectable pie!

2. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Even if you’ve never been one for rhubarb, this pie might just be the one that changes your mind. The sweetness of the strawberry balances out the sour/tart taste of the rhubarb that many people dislike, into a perfectly balanced flavour. So, if you and your bestie are the perfect match when it comes to balancing out each other’s sour days, then this pie is for you!

3. Dark Chocolate And Cherry Pie
Are you and your best friend chocolate lovers? Then this pie might just be the one for you (if you also like cherries!). By combining a bittersweet dark chocolate with dark cherries, it creates a delicious balance in flavour that isn’t too icky sweet, but also isn’t too bitter. It’s a perfect way to get both of your chocolate fixes, without the guilt or sweetness overload of eating an entire pie together!

4. Peach Raspberry Pie
When it comes down to how perfectly matched this combination is, peaches and raspberries are the fruit combination to salt and pepper. The juicy peaches provide the majority of flavour in this pie, but with the added raspberries it gives a nice balance of slight tartness that really makes this recipe worth making with your bestie.

5. Peanut Butter And Chocolate Pie
I mean really, if we’re compiling a list of sweets that were meant to be together, then we can’t leave out the classic peanut butter and chocolate combination! This recipe detours slightly from the classic look of a pie, but with a chocolate base, a peanut butter centre and chocolate ganache on top, we guarantee there won’t be a crumb left behind!

6. Citrus Cranberry Pie
You might not think to put cranberries as the main ingredient in a pie, but this surprising combination of tart cranberry is balanced towards its sweeter nature thank to the addition of a little citrus from the added lemon and orange. So, if you and your best friend are a pair of besties that surprise people, this pie will be the perfect choice to bake!

7. Caramel And Apple Pie
Fair grounds know that caramel dipped apples are among the best parts of the fair, so why not transfer that same blissful combination into a pie? It’ll smell and taste just like the fair! And it adds a whole second layer of flavour compared to a classic apple pie. So, if you and your best friend like apple pie, but want to switch up the recipe, go for this one!

8. Maple Pumpkin Pie
Calling all Canadian best friends! And no, you don’t have to wait until the fall to bake this delicious pie, but if you are looking for some fall activities to do with your best friend, then this is a perfect idea to keep in mind! The added maple syrup adds a touch of home and an extra rich boost to the spiced pumpkin pie.

9. Mixed Berry Pie

10. Bourbon Pecan Pie
Why not add a little boozy fun to the mix and turn a regular pie into the perfect addition to a girl’s night in! Pecan pie on its own is a pretty potently delicious pie, but adding a little (or a lot!) of bourbon to the mix not only brings out even more flavour, but it adds a nice smoky taste to the pie as well.

11. Pear Date Sesame Pie
They say three’s a crowd, but there’s nothing crowded about this pie. The combination may not seem like something that you would put into a pie, let alone add all together, but when baked as one the flavour speaks for itself with how well it works. And hey, maybe you have more than one best friend! So, this is a perfect pie to bake with all your best friends!

12. Banana Rum Cream Pie
Another perfectly boozed up pie recipe, just waiting to be made and shamelessly devoured for a bestie get together. Banana cream pie can stand on its own as a favoured and delicious pie, but add a splash of rum and it just gets better! You can even try out different rums, either spiced or double up on the banana flavour and go for banana rum. Or maybe this is the perfect time for a tipsy bake off to find the perfect combination!
