A pie or two is a given at our house on Thanksgiving, but we also love indulging throughout the year. I’ve selected The Best Holiday Pies to come out of my kitchen, suitable for any celebration!
Best Holiday Pies
Chocolate is always requested when it comes to dessert for family gatherings. So it’s probably no surprise that a number of our favorite holiday pies are laden with chocolate.
I’m the lone family member who swoons after a bite or two of coconut cream or pecan pie, but I can only rotate those into the mix every few years. Double crusted fruit pies are crowd pleasers, too, whether apple, raspberry or blueberry.
I love searching for new inspiration each year, like this post on Favorite Thanksgiving Pies! What’s your favorite pie?
Two More Favorite Holiday Pie Recipes:
Since it’s only days until Thanksgiving, it would be remiss of me not to share my favorite Pumpkin Pie. It’s basically the recipe on the back of the Libby’s pumpkin can, but with an extra egg and heavy cream used in place of evaporated milk. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a slice of this gem topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream. Plus for another taste of the tropics, I adore a good Key Lime Pie!
