I could have listed my favorite main courses, delicious side dishes, elegant centerpieces. But no. If I had to choose my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal, it would absolutely have to be the pies! Not just one. There should be a selection. Now in our home, the Thanksgiving meal is just set for our immediate family of 5 and yet I will still have 2 pies there – beckoning to me throughout the meal. And for special occasions and holidays, it cannot just be any whipped topping. The real thing for me! Here are some traditional favorites for your pie-baking (and eating) pleasure.
The photo shows my oldest daughter at 3-years-old, just after she had taken a mini-scoop of pumpkin pie – hence the paw print in the pumpkin pie pictured.
What is your favorite pie at Thanksgiving? Do you use any old family recipes or do you like trying lots of different recipes?
