Thanksgiving Pies & Dessert
Obviously the turkey and stuffing and sweet potato casseroles are a star when it comes to most Thanksgiving tables. Though, they have many sidekicks with a sweetened touch! You are going to love all of the Thanksgiving pies we have gathered for you today!
Dessert is not only something that I love to prepare, it’s my favorite part of the entire meal on Thanksgiving! Well, it may be a tie between mashed potatoes and dessert, actually! This Caramel Apple Bread Pudding is a common Thanksgiving breakfast OR dessert in our house!
What Pie Do You Eat On Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving is full of options on what to eat. You’ll find anything from pumpkin pie, apple pie, or pecan pie to the more basic desserts like cupcakes, brownies, and cookies! You could even go with a dessert dip!
There is no “rule” for what makes something a Thanksgiving dessert but there ARE some pretty common and traditional ones you’ll see quite often!
Pecan Pie is a classic southern pie that is a hit during Thanksgiving but is great any time of year! It’s a pie that is made with pecans or pecan halves combined with a sweet and gooey filling made of sugar, butter, and eggs. We love when it has a super flaky pie crust to bite into. Pecan pie is definitely one of the sweetest pies you’ll likely try.
So, here is an interesting fact for you that you can bring up at the dinner table! Have you ever wondered how many Pumpkin Pies are eaten on Thanksgiving each year? I bet you didn’t know that every Thanksgiving, about 50 million Pumpkin Pies are eaten!
Do you have any idea how much pumpkin pie spice and pie filling that is? While there are plenty of different variations of the traditional pumpkin pie recipe, I am sharing a handful of the best!
