Pie is an all-year delicacy, but is mostly made during the holiday season. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I am sure you ate multiple pieces of pie; I know I did! I have done some research and found that the most common flavor of pie for Thanksgiving is Pumpkin, with Pecan and Apple as close seconds. If you want to make some pie for the holiday season, here are some helpful recipes for the top 3 pie flavors!

Pumpkin Pie:

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, spices and salt in medium bowl until smooth. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake 15 minutes.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking 35 to 40 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
  5. Let cool, and enjoy!

Pecan Pie:

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter, water, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Gradually beat in cooked syrup mixture. Stir in salt, vanilla, and pecans. Pour into pie shell.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until filling is set.
  5. Put pecans on the top as garnish and enjoy!

Apple Pie:

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium)3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Crust:

  • 1 9 in pie crust

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
  2. In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.

    Not only are pies a yummy dessert for Thanksgiving, but they are also a special treat for Christmas or just when you’re craving something sweet! I hope you make use of these great recipes and contribute a scrumptious pie to your Christmas diner.
