With so many delicious Thanksgiving pie recipes, how to choose? All of these will be hits!
I didn’t realize that I had 36 million friends, but anyone who claims apple pie as their favorite can’t be bad! Pie is the classic dessert that must end our Thanksgiving meal. No matter how you protest to Grandma that you couldn’t possibly eat another bite, you know she’s going to cut you two big slices.
Now, you could stop at the store and get one of those boxed pies. But I have a feeling that the pies I’m about to show you will change your mind.
Show up to the meal carrying any of these Thanksgiving pies, and you’ll be everyone’s favorite relative. Besides, Uncle Marvin can’t talk about politics if his mouth is full. (We hope.)
Dig In To These 15 Thanksgiving Pie Recipes
Let’s start with the obvious. No Thanksgiving dinner is complete without a classic pumpkin pie. Cover mine with plenty of whipped cream!
If you like a classic homemade pumpkin pie, you’ll love this recipe.
Next up, let’s talk apple pie. It’s all American, and my personal favorite. The tricky part about apple pie is that many people prefer to eat it in a specific way. So I’m including three different recipes so you can find the one that best fits your crowd.
Easy Skillet Apple Pie
Is it just me, or is the idea of baking a traditional apple pie right in your cast iron skillet amazing? I think I love my cast iron skillet even more than my crock pot. Kick your apple pie up a notch with this recipe.
Dutch Apple Pie
Do you prefer a crumble topping on your apple pie? Want a little more to your filling than just apples? Then you want this recipe.
Salted Caramel Apple Pie
I’m a huge fan of salted caramel. This recipe adds it to your pie for a delicious twist on the classic. Make some extra salted caramel to dip your apple slices in over the long weekend. You’ll thank me for that tip.
Have you heard of transparent pie? Me neither. But it looks delicious. It’s got George Clooney’s stamp of approval, so that has to mean something!
Chocolate French Silk Pie
This pie is rich, so you’ll want to serve thinner slices. That means more to go around! Be just a little bit suspicious of anyone who doesn’t love chocolate.
Another rich but delicious choice is butterscotch pie. It’s amazing, but just a bit different, so you probably won’t duplicate someone else.
I’ve had trouble pulling off a good custard pie. Maybe that’s because I’ve tried complicated recipes. I love the simplicity of this recipe. The instructions are just what you need to create the perfect custard pie.
Orange Creamsicle Pie
Do you remember orange creamsicles from your childhood? Bring all of that fun back with this amazing pie! Bring some nostalgia for the crowd. You won’t believe it, but this recipe is just 3 ingredients and a crust. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
Lemon Meringue Pie
My Grandma made the absolute best lemon meringue pie. But this recipe from The Prudent Homemaker (one of my favorite blogs) looks pretty incredible. Don’t worry…meringue sounds more intimidating than it really is. And Brandy will tell you just how to do it.
Key Lime Pie
Lemons and limes make a great pair. If you want to end the meal on a fresh, slightly tart yet still sweet note, go for the key lime pie. You’ll love the simplicity of the graham cracker crust.
Cream Puff Pie
I’ve always been a huge fan of cream puffs. The picture of this pie alone makes me drool. I’ll be adding this one to my own menu to try soon. With a drizzle of chocolate on the top, this pie looks amazing!
Deep Dish Cherry Pie
For my family, no real celebration can be complete without a cherry pie. It’s the cherry on top of the desserts! Fill that pie to the brim with this deep dish recipe.
Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Pie
Confession time…I don’t think I’ve ever had peanut butter pie. But look at the list of ingredients here…chocolate, cream cheese, cinnamon. I count those as my favorites! This recipe looks like another must try. (Especially if you’re a chocolate/peanut butter combo lover!)
Kentucky Pecan Pie
Another Thanksgiving classic, pecan pie is a beloved end to the meal. This recipe is nice, because it doesn’t call for as much sugar. The pecan flavor really shines in this pie.
Your loved ones are going to adore these Thanksgiving pies!
Choose your favorite recipe to try. And this year, you can insist that Grandma try a piece.
