Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to think about pie!
Apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and all the other pies we love to make for the holiday. Because we all know that Thanksgiving is All About The Pie. Right? So I have put together a list of some of the best Thanksgiving pies I’ve found, beautiful to look at, amazing to eat, and each of them says Thanksgiving, holidays, and fall treats to me.
In my family I am the pie maker.
And, like most people, I have my favorites, the pies I choose from year to year. However, I love to get new inspiration and try new twists on the classics or even go back to basics and try a classic the way someone else makes it. There are always tips and tricks and little family secrets to learn!
Since I know I’m not the only one obsessed with pie, I decided to put together a list of some of the best pies I’ve come across recently. And I hope one of these will become a family favorite in my family or in yours! Because Thanksgiving is coming soon and it’s time to make some Thanksgiving pies.
Here I have classics, like apple pie and pecan pie (and both of these recipes are old family favorites too!). Pies which should be classics, like chocolate cream pie and pear pie, the other fall fruit we all know and love. And pies which are a little bit different, for when you want to break out and do something new, like a chocolate pumpkin tart or a cranberry gingersnap pie.
Are you the pie maker in your family? Or maybe you hope to be? Either way, I think you are going to find some amazing pies to try out this Thanksgiving.
