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

No Thanksgiving is complete without the pumpkin pie. This timeless dessert has been remade with a twist. What happends when you combine 2 favourites – Salted Caramek + Pumpkin Spice. Magic!

Made with creamy pumpkin puree, a blend of warm spices, and rich caramel sauce, it’s the perfect representation of this season’s flavors.

While sweet pies often steal the show, don’t forget about savory options. Tourtière is a classic French-Canadian meat pie filled with a delicious mix of ground pork, veal, or beef, seasoned with spices like cinnamon and cloves. It’s hearty, flavorful, and perfect for those who prefer savory over sweet.

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.

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.

Made with dairy-free butter and almond milk, this pie retains all the classic apple pie flavors without compromising on taste.

For those who avoid gluten, a gluten-free sweet potato pie offers the perfect blend of flavors and textures. Using a gluten-free crust made from almond flour or oats, this pie showcases the deliciousness of sweet potatoes

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!
