Thanksgiving Pies | Biscotts

Baked Short Crust Pastry Pie

We know that the turkey is the main act on Thanksgiving, but pie for dessert is an important follow-up. Can you even imagine a Thanksgiving dinner without a slice of pumpkin pie? Would you even want to? Fortunately, there is no reason to miss out on dessert this Thanksgiving, not when you can serve one or more of these yummy Thanksgiving pies.

 

Thanksgiving Pies

Classic Pumpkin Pie

 

Serving pumpkin pie for dessert on Thanksgiving is practically a requirement. Today, pumpkin desserts come in many forms, but they can’t quite take the place of a classic pumpkin pie. With its cinnamon, nutmeggy flavor and traditional crust, pumpkin pie always tastes good. When it comes to pumpkin pie, the only decision is how much whipped cream does your slice need? Are you the kind of person who likes a little pie with your whipped cream or a little whipped cream with your pie?

 

Apple Pie

 

Like pumpkin, apple is another traditional Thanksgiving pie. It’s a great alternative for those who don’t like pumpkin. Apple pie is the perfect blend of sour and sweet while the cinnamon seasoning can be soothing for those who may have overdone it by eating too much turkey.

 

Banana Cream Pie

 

This may not be a classic pie from your childhood, but banana cream pie is becoming a common Thanksgiving Day dessert. It is the perfect choice for guests who didn’t get enough rich food for dinner. Banana cream pie is a tasty indulgence that’s sure to be the perfect dining finale.

Nontraditional Thanksgiving Pies

 

If this is the year that you want something a little different, then try one of our salted caramel or butterscotch pudding Thanksgiving pies. The caramel one is bound to hit the right note with its blend of salty and sweet while the butterscotch pie is just different enough to be a refreshing replacement for traditional pie choices.

 

Something Different for Dessert

 

Take a completely different dessert route this year by serving something like lemon, mango mousse or coconut custard tart instead of pie. Tarts satisfy that sweet craving while offering a different consistency and flavor combination. Tarts come in a special crust that is bit saltier, so they can seem a little less sweet than other desserts.

Frightening Caramel Apples

Caramel apples are a traditional Halloween goodie. It’s a treat that combines something healthy with something delicious and gooey. Today’s caramel apples are more than just apples and caramel. You can get them with caramel and chocolate as well as covered in cookie or candy crumbles. They even come in white chocolate and cinnamon, which is likely to remind you of a mouth-watering cinnamon roll.
