Creative (and Easy-to-Make) Pies to Bring to Your Next Party
None of these tasty desserts are meant to be eaten hot—which means you can easily make them ahead of time. Just pop the crust in the oven until golden, pile in the fillings, chill and enjoy.

A Double-Pretzel Pie
Another version of the crushed-up, salty crust comes from Duff Goldman and Sara Gonzales' new book, Duff Bakes: Think and Bake Like a Pro at Home
. The wonder ingredients here are the finely ground crumbs from both long, thick pretzel rods and peanut-butter-filled pretzels. Inside this flavor-bomb of a crust, you spread melted chocolate, then pastry cream and bananas; then, finally, whipped cream.
