It's almost Thanksgiving and that means pie! Here are 15 delicious Thanksgiving pie ideas that will make you want to skip the turkey and get right to dessert.
What kind of pie will you make this Thanksgiving? Pumpkin is fine, but certainly not the only kind you can make. There are so many great pies out there: with fruit, custard, pudding, and more!
Here are my best pie recipes for Thanksgiving. There are traditional flavors here like apple and sweet potato, but also some different types of pie like Fruits Of The Forest and one of my all-time favorites, Cinnamon Pie.
How many pies should I make for Thanksgiving?
One 9-inch pie has eight slices—however, while one pie might technically feed everyone at your gathering, it's always fun to have a few options. That can mean two or three kinds of pie. (Or more... our grandmother Frechette often made dozens!)
It can also mean adding in some non-pie options (see my ideas for Thanksgiving desserts that aren't pies here.)
And don't take on all this work yourself! Ask for help: your guests will happily contribute pies or other treats for the dessert table.
Your pie crust should be delicious too!
