20 Best Thanksgiving Pie Recipes

By Camille Styles

It’s the eternal Thanksgiving debate at our house: try out a “new twist” on the traditional desserts (me), or stick with the classics (pretty much everyone else). The men in our family look forward to my mom’s perfect pecan tart all year long, and my sister and Phoebe are major pumpkin pie girls. Though I may get seduced by the sexier caramel layer cakes and pumpkin tiramisu parfaits spotted in my favorite food mags, I’ve got to admit that at the end of the day, it’s hard to beat a wedge of homemade pie with a dollop of whipped cream and cup of coffee. Luckily, within this roundup of our favorite fall pies, there’s something for both the traditionalists and adventurers among us…
