Thanksgiving Desserts: Perfect Pies
Pie should really get its own annual marketing campaign: “The Official Dessert of Thanksgiving.” No one would contest it; after all, it’s exceedingly rare to see a Thanksgiving table that doesn’t contain at least one variety of pie. Pumpkin, apple, chocolate silk, pecan … There’s no denying that Americans are wild for our favorite flavors baked up in a buttery pastry crust.
The classics are classic for a reason—almost everyone loves them. But even small tweaks to tradition can elevate perennial favorites to cult status. We’ve picked 11 of our favorite pies, from traditional sweet potato in a graham cracker crust to an apple number made even more heavenly with the addition of rich caramel sauce. So when the turkey has made the rounds and your guests are ready for more, fire up the coffee maker and set out the plates—it’s time for Thanksgiving pie.
