McDonald’s Holiday Pies Are Officially Back, and Just in Time for Christmas

McDonald's Holiday Pies are here for the season! But they won't be around for long...

The flavors of Christmas are back—and we couldn’t be happier! Now, you can brighten your day once again with a peppermint mocha and a beloved McDonald’s Holiday Pie. Here’s everything you need to know about the popular treat’s comeback for the holiday season.

What Is the McDonald’s Holiday Pie?

It’s like the classic Baked Apple Pie, except instead of apples and cinnamon you’ll find vanilla custard tucked inside a flaky, buttery crust. The treat that has been a McDonald’s classic since 1999 is 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 typically kept under wraps. This year, though, the less than $2.00 Holiday Pie has already been spotted by Instagram users, and the rest of the internet followed suit to the drive-thru for a bite.

The McDonald’s Holiday Pie is only available for a limited time, and you may want to check with your nearest location to make sure they have it before you head out. In years past, some locations sold out, so we’ll be hitting the drive-thru ASAP.

Don’t have a McDonald’s near you with this treat on the menu? Try our Nutella hand pie recipe or a copycat Shamrock Shake instead. You can’t go wrong either way!
