It’s the All-American dessert: a warm, fresh-baked pie. Filling? Your choice… and we’ve got all kinds of options for you. Here, we steer you toward 12 must-try, gluten-free pie recipes.

Over the years, Gluten Free & More has published a book’s worth of pie recipes. And thanks to the data we’ve rounded up, we can tell which ones our readers have visited most often.

So before you set your next dinner menu, take a look at the pie recipes here, find your favorite flavors, and fire up the oven.

Actually, in most cases you’ll first want a gluten-free pie crust (often spelled online as one words: piecrust). So let’s start there—with these old standby recipes that readers seem to love: Classic Gluten-Free Pie Crust Recipes.

And now… on to our reader-favorite pie recipes, counting down from No. 12 all the way to No. 1, a classic pie that won’t surprise you in the least, we bet.

12. Gluten-Free Dutch Apple Pie:

A flaky crust filled with warm apples and topped with cinnamon streusel makes this Dutch Apple Pie the ultimate fall dessert. The perfect balance of sweet and spicy, it will cause apple dessert enthusiasts to swoon. This recipe is also scrumptious as a traditional 2-crust apple pie.

11. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse Pie:

“Melted chocolate,” says Food Editor Beth Hillson, “imparts a deceptively rich taste to this light dessert.” She then delivers instructions for both crust and filling for her 9-inch Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse Pie.

Our only advice: double up and make two; this one is bound to go fast.

10Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Raspberry Pie:

The big attraction here is the mix of chocolate and raspberry in the filling, but buckwheat flour and cocoa powder add to the effect. You can make our gluten-free egg-free as well.

7. Gluten-Free Apple Cranberry Pie:

A perfect blend of sweet and tart, this gluten-free apple cranbery pie is sure to be a holiday hit. Cover it with a flaky gluten-free crust or lattice (as shown) for a classic look. In a hurry? Sprinkle it with Gluten-Free Crumble Topping or enjoy it as an open gluten-free pie.

6Allergy-Free Blueberry Pie:

Author and bakery owner Diane Kittle used wild Maine blueberries in creating this mouth-watering pie. If you can’t find Maine ’berries (which are smaller and sweeter than most that you find in stores), standard ones will work, too.

5Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Boston Cream Pie:

A gluten-free butter cake serves as the base for this amazing dessert. The double-layer pie includes recipes for complementary vanilla pudding and chocolate ganache. (Note: the cake can be made just as effectively with a butter replacement, if you prefer.)

4Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Crustless Pumpkin Pie

As an alternate to a pie with a classic crust, how about this option? Jules Shepard’s Crustless Pumpkin Pie is simple and tasty, and can be made two days ahead of time and stored in your refrigerator.

The flour naturally forms a cake-like crust around the edges of the pie.

3. Gluten-Free Pecan Pie:

A light, flaky gluten-free crust combines with a decadent filling—without dairy, eggs or corn syrup. (If you’d like to use corn syrup, add ½ cup corn syrup instead of coconut nectar.)
