It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s pie season. And while we love a good pumpkin-flavored treat, restricting your pie repertoire to pumpkin alone is a mistake—especially with decadent-sounding options like spiced pear, gorgonzola, and toasted walnut pie or gooey collapsing chocolate bourbon pecan pie (seriously) readily available. Here, some of our favorite sweet and savory fall pies that won’t make you miss the pumpkin.

Malted Walnut Pie

The malted walnut filling of this pecan pie-inspired take makes for a less sweet version of the classic pie. Paired with white chocolate and garnished with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream, it’s a pinch healthier than the original!
