What could be better than pie? It’s one of America’s favorite desserts but when you add a pour of bourbon or a bottle of ale to the recipe, you’ve got a truly winning combination. From beer and wine to brandy and bourbon, each of these pie recipes features a different sip. Whether your favorite slice is light and fruity or heavy and rich, you’re sure to find your perfect pick. The following are the shining stars in the confection universe and the addition of booze in each one highlights what we love most about dessert: pure indulgence.

1. Biscoff Pie + Maple Whiskey Mallow Fluff: Step away from the oven. This pie comes together in the fridge and gets a quick browning of the marshmallow topping just before serving. The featured flavor of Maple Crown Royal is a real crowd-pleaser. (via Country Cleaver)

2. Pineapple Pale Ale Cream Cheese Tart: This dreamy dessert screams summer. A simple crust is heaped with a delightful filling of pineapple, toasted coconut, almonds and pale ale. One bite and your mouth will be transported to a tropical vacation. (via The Beeroness)

3. Strawberry Moonshine Fried Pie: What’s better than a fried pie? A fried pie packed with strawberries and moonshine, that’s what! This fried and true recipe breaks the traditional hand pie mold with a sugar coating that is to die for. (via Garden + Gun)

Unlike average grasshopper pies, this recipe calls for the cutest topping ever — chocolate-covered marshmallows and crumbled chocolate cookies. (via The Moonblush Baker)

12. Mini Sweet Potato Hand Pies: We can’t resist mini desserts and these are truly killer. Mouthwatering sweet potatoes pick up major flavor from bourbon and maple syrup to create a magical filling hugged by a perfectly flaky crust. (via Peanut Butter and Peppers)

13. Bailey’s Brownie Ice Pie: Would you believe us if we told you there’s a pie that features cookies, candy and booze? Believe.

14. Peach Bourbon Hand Pies: As soon as you find ripe peaches, there’s no better use for them than to combine them with bourbon, wrap them in a savory crust and make a hand pie that travels anywhere with ease. They’re as convenient as they are delicious so double-fist these bad boys and head out to enjoy these mini pies on the run! (via Shared Appetite)
