The flavors of Christmas are here—and we couldn’t be happier! You can brighten your day with a peppermint mocha and a Holiday Pie from McDonald’s. Here’s everything you need to know about the popular treat that’s back for the holiday season.
What Is a Holiday Pie?
It’s like the classic Baked Apple Pie, except instead of apples and cinnamon you’ll find vanilla custard tucked inside flaky, buttery crust. It’s also glazed with sugar and topped with rainbow sprinkles for a burst of color. When it comes to flavor, think sugar cookies.
When Can I Get One?
Like the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, the Holiday Pie release date is kept under wraps. McDonald’s HQ has tweeted that release dates are up to the local restaurant owners/operators and encouraged pie lovers to ask at their local McD’s.
However, not too long ago, somebody tweeted about seeing the holiday dessert at a local restaurant. McDonald’s confirmed the rumors, saying Holiday Pies are back for the season. So watch for the pies near you!
The Holiday Pie is only available at McDonald’s for a limited time, though. In years past, some locations sold out, so we’ll be hitting the drive-thru ASAP. In the meantime, we’ll be making this Nutella hand pie recipe and maybe a copycat Shamrock Shake.
