A decade ago I did a Thanksgiving countdown listing ten of our favorite (or not so favorite) pies, along with the family stories behind them. This year I did something similar, but on FaceBook, not on the blog. However, I felt it would be nice to have all the Thanksgiving pie possibilities listed in one post, so here you go!
Frosty Pumpkin Pie – Our all-time favorite Thanksgiving pie, basically mix together sweetened and spiced pumpkin with vanilla ice cream and plop into a graham cracker crust.
Mom’s Pumpkin Sundae Pie – Very similar to the above, but with the addition of a caramel sauce.
Pumpkin Pie – The traditional version, and a must for the Thanksgiving feast.
Candy Bar Pie – Our family’s all-time favorite year-round pie – combine chocolate, marshmallows and whipping cream in a walnut crust. This is particularly great because it can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer.
Peanut Butter Pie – Another pie that can be made ahead and stored in the freezer.
Caramel Ice Cream Pie – Have you figured out that we really like ice cream pies?
We also like fruit pies. Here are some of our favorites:
While we love these last few pies, and would eat them year-round, they really are more suitable for summer. Here are some more appropriate options for autumn and Thanksgiving.
Finally, there are a few that we will most likely never have again, and if you want to know why, follow the link and read the story.
