Just like our beloved Threes Boston Cream pie is rich and delightful and full of inspiration.
— Lemon Meringue Pie--Type 4 — The Individualist –
Sensitive and dramatic, the best pie for an Enneagram Type Four needs to stand out in a crowd because she loves that she is uniquely herself and there is no one exactly like her. Lemon Meringue is a pleasure for the palate. Unique and light, and oh so indulgent, the Lemon Meringue Pie is flair itself, just like the Fours we know and love.

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie is healthy with an amazing twist on the traditional, melding well with the motivations and depth of the Five.
—Shepherd’s Pie–Enneagram Type 6 – The Loyalist –
Engaging in their daily interaction, the Enneagram Type Sixes are committed to whatever they are involved in. Shepherd’s pie is the perfect meal to sit down to after a day of fulfilling obligations and working hard at whatever they are passionate about. Sixes work hard, and shepherd’s pie is filling and goes above and beyond a typical pie. Sixes and shepherd’s pie are both a rich take on a classic.

– Raspberry Pear Tart--Type 8 – The Challenger
The pie for an Enneagram Type Eight needs to match well. An Eight is willful and decisive, just like you need to be to make a tantalizing tart. Tarts might take a little more effort than a traditional pie, and take time to create, but the end result is so worth it. Similarly, it takes more effort sometimes to be in relationship with Eights, for whom conflict equals connection, and more time to establish that relationship. Raspberry pear tarts are bursting with flavor, just like Eights are bursting with intensity.
– Apple Pie –Enneagram Type 9 – The Peacemaker
Reassuring and agreeable, nothing says home like an apple pie. Enneagram Type Nines likewise are comforting. Type Nines pick you up when you are down and cheer you up, just as a warm piece of homemade apple pie with cinnamon ice cream makes you feel cozy and loved. Apple pies are as easy to make as the Nine’s easy going style. Both seem nurturing and feel like family.
