10 Slab Pie Recipes Perfect for a Crowd
Reimagine pie with these easy slab pie recipes. Not familiar with slab pie? It's basically the easier, more informal way to make pie. And it also happens to be ideal for serving a crowd. You'll need a rimmed baking sheet (this set from Rachael Ray is an Amazon best seller) to get started. Instead of fooling with finicky pie pans, simply bake your pie in the sheet pan and cut into 'slabs' or bars for easy serving. You may never go back to round pies after trying these 10 easy slab pie recipes.
Apple Slab Pie
This recipe makes serving Dutch apple pie easier than ever. "Needed a quick dessert with apples and tried this," says reviewer Nikki. "Everyone gave great compliments."
"This is a creamy pudding-like pie. It has thick chocolate filling, thick cream cheese filling, a butter/nut crust, and is topped with whipped cream," says recipe creator Nancy Scott. "Definitely not for those who are on a diet."

Pretzels, cherry pie filling, and whipped topping are layered in this simple yet satisfying dessert. "The whipped cream mixture is sinfully good," says reviewer Devin Marie.
Finnish Blueberry Pie
Nothing says summer like this blueberry slab pie (served with a hearty serving of whipped cream of course). Recipe creator BlueberryPirakka says, "This pie, with its sugar cookie-like crust, is simple to make and stores well in the fridge or on the counter during cool weather up to 2 days. It can be served hot, cold, plain, or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side."
Sweet Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie
A homemade blueberry filling and cream cheese spread are layered on top of a pecan crust for a simple, from-scratch dessert. "I loved how easy it was to get it out of the pan without it falling apart as well — presentation was lovely," says reviewer Terri Postnikoff.
Autumn Apple Slab Pie
Recipe creator Kim says it best: "Apple pie with the addition of walnuts, raisins, and warm spices in a large quantity? Yes, please! Tastes like autumn in a pan!"

Tieton Apricot Tart with Basil Custard
"This big dessert was made for a big picnic in Tieton, Washington from locally grown fresh apricots," says recipe creator cheesemite. "Tart apricots and lightly-sweetened custard with a hint of basil layer onto a rustic whole wheat and almond crust. Store tart in the refrigerator until ready to serve."
