The first mentions of pies were seen in the Egyptian culture, which then made its way to ancient Greece. And as extravagant and celebratory pies might seem today, this dish was once considered a humble man’s fare, like a shepherd's pie for instance.

Eggless Banoffee Pie
This is the perfect, quick and easy dessert for all of you non-egg-eaters. Typically made with a buttery biscuit layer topped with silky caramel filling, fresh banana slices and a generous amount of whipped cream. For an added pleasure, the pie is frequently topped with a generous amount of chocolate shavings. The combination of sweet and chewy caramel, creamy banana, and crunchy base makes banoffee pie a beloved treat for those with a sweet tooth, just like me!

Blueberry Pie
Fun fact: Did you know that wild blueberries from Maine, USA, were used to make blueberry pie for the very first time? This traditional dish highlights the acidic and sweet flavours of blueberries, baked inside a buttery, flaky pie crust, with a dash of lemon juice or spices. It goes great with a dab of whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, making it a favourite during summer months when blueberries are in season.

Homemade Apple Pie
Homemade apple pies are the most comforting dish there is, in my opinion. It is a popular American dish that is made with soft apples flavoured with cinnamon and baked in a light, golden crust. Served warm with a side of strong cheddar cheese or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, apple pie is merely a classic dessert that makes you feel cosy. The easiest thing to ever make for family dinners, give it a try and I promise you won't be sorry.

Keto Chocolate Pie
A rich treat ideal for low-carb diets is keto chocolate pie. Rich dark chocolate blended with cream cheese or coconut milk to create a creamy texture makes up its velvety filling. It has a delightfully sweet flavour without added sugar, thanks to the use of keto-friendly sweeteners like erythritol or stevia. Keto chocolate pie is the ideal treat for anyone looking for a guilt-free chocolate treat that still adheres to a ketogenic diet.

Keto Pecan Pie
This pie features a rich and nutty filling made with fresh pecans and a touch of natural sweetener to keep the sugar content low. The crust sports a blend of almond flour and butter, creating the perfect base for this savoury-sweet masterpiece. Occasionally, a sprinkle of sugar-free chocolate chips adds a luxurious twist. You absolutely must try this keto pecan pie, to satisfy all your dessert cravings while keeping your diet on track!
