With so many delicious Thanksgiving pie recipes, how can you 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 (right?!). 

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.)

Apple Pie

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.

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.

Transparent Pie

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.

Butterscotch Pie

Another rich but delicious choice is butterscotch pie.  It’s amazing, but just a bit different, so you probably won’t duplicate someone else.

Custard Pie

I’ve had trouble pulling off a good custard pie.  Maybe that’s because I’ve tried complicated recipes.  

This recipe asks you to scald the milk, which turned out the perfect pie!  Our whole family loved it!

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.
