60 Thanksgiving Pie Recipes to Impress a Crowd

What's Gaby Cooking

If Thanksgiving is the Super Bowl of food holidays, we like to think of pie as the starting quarterback. It’s just not Thanksgiving if it doesn’t end with something sweet in a crust, like pumpkin pie in cinnamon roll pie crust, a puff pastry apple galette or a blood orange tart with toasted meringue. Here are 60 of our favorite Thanksgiving pie recipes—from tried-and-true classics to new ideas that just might become your next family tradition.
