30 Peculiar Pie Recipes

From Asian Noodle Pies to Bug-Infused Holiday Pies

— July 6, 2015 — Lifestyle
Apple pie may be a 4th of July staple, but why not shake things up a bit with one of these peculiar pie recipes? From sweet desserts to savory dishes, these unusual pie recipes are perfect for any time of day.

Traditionally, most pies feature a flaky golden crust and a sweet fruity center. However, a sweet dessert pie does not necessarily need to be filled with fruit. For example, you might want to fill your pie with a nutty chocolate spread for an indulgent after-dinner treat. If you're not a fan of chocolate, you can use cream for a dessert that mimics the rich taste of cheesecake.

Beyond sweet pies, there are other peculiar pie recipes that make use of more savory ingredients. Shepard's pie and chicken pot pie are some of the more traditional dinner-ready pies dishes. Yet there are also pies made from corn chips, rice noodles and even minced insects. While these more unusual pies may not be for everyone, they certainly put a novel twists on a classic flaky dish.
