Bake a Pie for Thanksgiving | Life as MOM

As far as I’m concerned, Thanksgiving is all about the pie. Cookies may reign at Christmas, but pie is where it’s at come Turkey Day.

And can I say that it’s better to make pie from scratch? It really truly is. Those pies you buy at the grocery store or even Marie Callendar’s just don’t stack up against the real deal.

Pie is not hard. Pie is easy. It’s easy as pie.

Seriously. There’s a reason for that saying. My Gramma John’s pie crust is literally fool proof. I promise.

Be sure to hop on over to Ultimate Recipe Swap for more pie. Here are some of my favorite pies to make at Thanksgiving:

Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie

Nanna’s Apple Pie

Sweet Cherry Pie

Slab Apple Pie

Mixed Berry Pie with Cinnamon and Lemon

Homemade Chocolate Cream Pie

  1. These look delicious! I’ll be trying the Pumpkin Streusel one for sure. How do you freeze these? Bake first?

    • The pumpkin and chocolate are not freezer-friendly, though you can make the pie crusts ahead of time. The others need to be frozen prior to baking. Several of them have those kinds of directions on the recipe post itself.

    • @Bryttin, our family loved this streusel pumpkin pie. even the non-pumpkin eaters tried some and liked it. =)
