I bet most of you have your holiday menu finalized by now, but just in case there are a few people like me who are having a hard time deciding what to bake, I thought it’d be fun to do a holiday pie round-up. I’m lucky to have a large family who (for the most part, haha!) enjoy being together. We usually go to one grandma’s house for lunch and the other for dinner. It’s probably no surprise that I bring a dessert, huh? 😉 Usually, I’ll bake two or three desserts at least. Although, I’m hoping that eventually they’ll give in and let me brine the turkey. I’m nothing if not persistent, so they’re bound to give in soon, right??
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and remember to count your blessings. I know I have so much to be thankful for this year. I hope your biggest worry this year is overeating! #firstworldproblems =)
And now some delicious pies, in no particular order…
Cherry Pie – Because there’s nothing more American than cherry pie and everyone loves the classics.
Caramel Pie – If you need a quick and easy pie, this pie is the way to go. Store-bought dulce de leche + store-bought graham cracker crust + cool-whip + mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Dessert in 5 minutes.
Classic Cheesecake – Everyone loves cheesecake and it’s definitely a plus that it can be made a day (or two) in advance.
Pumpkin Crumble Tart – For those times when you want traditional but with a twist.
Peanut Butter Pie – The classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate. What’s not to love? Added bonus is the make-ahead factor.
Key Lime Pie – A classic tart layer, topped with a cream cheese layer. Maybe it’s not traditional but you won’t have any complaints I promise.
Apple Pie – Classic, all-american pie. Delicious and definitely Thanksgiving worthy. Amen. 😉
Apple Berry Pie – A twist on classic apple pie.
Brown Butter Butterscotch Pie – Flaky crust filled with a brown butter butterscotch filling and topped with a classic meringue. Did you catch that brown butter part?? Yeah…
Peach Pie – Another classic fruit pie.
German Chocolate Pie – A great twist on classic pecan pie.
No-Bake Oreo Pie – Quick, easy, make-ahead, and everyone loves oreos! They’re milk’s favorite cookie =).
Chocolate Cream Pie – Rich, chocolate filling with classic meringue. I make this almost every year.
Coconut Cream Macadamia Nut Pie – I also make coconut cream pie at least every other year, but I might have to mix it up a little with this coconut cream pie remix.
And some pies from around the web that I love…
Sweet Potato Pie – Way better than pumpkin pie and I love this recipe!
Chess Pie – Another of Jordan’s favorite pies. Chocolate chess pie is good too, of course ;).
Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie – I made this last year and it was a hit – especially with the pumpkin pie lovers.
