4 pie recipes that change from apple pie

The origins of the pie date back to ancient times, where the first versions of this pastry were prepared with a simple pastry crust covered with fruit. The Greeks and Romans were known for their pies made with honey, fruit and cheese. Over time, the pie has evolved to include a multitude of variations, each with its own regional and cultural characteristics. From a simple apple pie, to strawberry pie, to exotic fruit, chocolate or dried fruit pies, today there are endless possibilities to satisfy all palates.

Variations of apple pie

For a change from the traditional apple pie, opt for a selection of fresh seasonal fruits to garnish your pie. Varied flavor combinations like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwis, mangoes and pineapples. Fresh herbs like mint, rosemary or verbena reveal the flavors of fresh fruit so don't hesitate to add some in the preparation, or just when eating. The tarts can be served hot or cold, alone or accompanied by whipped cream, ice creams and sorbets, or different coulis.
