Updated for 2020! Who says that just because you follow a special diet, you can’t have your pie and eat it too? If you’re wondering what dairy-free dessert to serve for the holidays, you’ve come to the right place! Every year, I update this listing of dairy-free pies with even more incredible recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and beyond. It includes delicious holiday pie recipes to suit a variety of free-from needs plus additional crust recipes and tips for toppings. Vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, paleo, raw, or just dairy-free pies, we have a recipe or three for you to bake, and for your entire family to enjoy.

Every year I check the links on this post (let me know if you get a bad one that I missed!), and I add some new recipes for dairy-free pies. And to make navigating even easier, I’ve added these jump links. Just click on the section you want to jump straight to it:

Over 75 Dairy-Free Pies for the Holidays

Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsOf course, all of the following pie recipes are dairy-free (lactose-free, casein-free, whey-free, milk-free, etc.). Plus, the recipes are gluten-free as noted, as long as you use a gluten-free pie crust. See the crust recipes near the end of this article for some great options. Also, for the dairy-free pies labeled as soy-free or optionally soy-free, where margarine is called for, use Melt Organic or Earth Balance Soy-Free for a good dairy-free and soy-free margarine option that bakes up beautifully.

Now, onto those holiday recipes for dairy-free pies. I’ve highlighted some my personal favorites! And you can find recipes for more of my favorite dairy-free pies in Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook – the new 2nd edition!
