6 Best Pies for Thanksgiving



Adds up to big savings

Thanksgiving is already next week! It’s hard to believe with the weather still so sunny outside. Nevertheless, whether you are looking for some classic or unique pies this year, check out these “6 Best Pies for Thanksgiving” that will cut down some planning time.
Leave Your Guests with a Delicious Memory

When you think Thanksgiving pies, you probably think of pumpkin pie, apple crumble pie, or pecan pie. But it doesn’t always have to be like this. This list of pies will provide these classics and others that you’ve never heard of. Your guests will be looking forward to next year’s thanksgiving dinner already!

To purchase ingredients or buy pies right off the shelf, visit Walmart, Longos, Buy-Low Foods, Legends Haul, or Nesters Market. Make sure to use the Moola app, available on both the App Store and Google Play to save more.

The Perfect Dessert That’ll Have Your Guests Craving for More

If your guests are bored of pumpkin, butternut squash will make a great alternative. Fresh butternut squash puree is much smoother than regular pumpkin puree and will be less of a messy job.

With a pie this silky smooth and creamy, some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream will be the perfect pair.

Apple pies are indicative of the seasons changing and the leaves falling. It would be a crime to not include this classic favourite on our list. For this pie, we have the typical buttery and flaky crust and cinnamon-spiced apples. But here’s the twist – salted caramel inside.

This updated version of the traditional apple pie will blow your socks off. We won’t judge if you keep on making this pie all year round!

Got a sweet and salty tooth? This pie has a sweet layer of coating accompanied with smoky bacon, buttery pecans, and spice from the bourbon.

This is not the choice for dinner with your vegan friends or those who prefer sweet pies. However, it is possibly the most American pie we can get, with pecans as the only tree nut indigenous to America and only whiskey produced in America being able to be classified as bourbon.

Want something that looks fancy but isn’t difficult to make? Take a look at this traditional French-style tart or pie that consists of a sweet tart crust, fresh and juicy pears, and creamy almond cream filling.

Tip: the best pears for this tart are Bartlett and Anjou.

If you’re looking for a light and delicate option that won’t make you stuffed, go for this chiffon pie! The roasted sweet potatoes give this pie a sweet, rich flavour and the Italian meringue adds beautiful, silky volume.

Feel free to simplify this recipe by purchasing a pre-made pie crust or cheating a little bit by using graham crackers.

This is by far the craziest pie on this list. As described, it is “like a Key Lime Pie that married the fresh and tangy cranberry”. But the gingersnaps, butter crust, and walnuts are the perfect combination of flavours to go with the fruity and tangy cranberries.

Plus, the crust doesn’t need to be rolled. Just press the crust into the pie dish to be baked for approximately 15 minutes. Simple and beautiful!

Desserts That Will Make You Dream of Pie, Pie, and More Pie

Thanksgiving is the time of the year to make more memories and eat together with your loved ones. With these pies, you will be sure to make an impressionable taste on everyone’s minds this year. Don’t be afraid to try some of these pies out and add your own flair to them!
