The Best Thanksgiving Pies bakeorbreak.com

To me, Thanksgiving is a pie holiday. I just love to see a beautiful display of pie deliciousness after the big meal. Of course, I can get behind a lot of other desserts, too, but let’s focus on pie.

I’ve gone through the archives and put together a collection of pies, tarts, mini pies, and more pie-like things that are perfect for Thanksgiving. And if you’ve been overloaded with pumpkin this season, you’ll be happy to see that this collection is 100% pumpkin free!

I hope you’ll find just the pie (or pies!) to make your Thanksgiving extra special and delicious!

Brown Butter Pecan Pie | Bake or Break

Brown Butter Pecan Pie is a simple twist on a classic. Those extra few minutes it takes to brown the butter are 100% worth it for a richer, nuttier flavor.

Chocolate Chess Pie

Chess Pie has long been one of my favorite desserts, and this Chocolate Chess Pie is a rich, fudgy version that is a must for chocolate lovers!

Apple Pie Bundles on parchment paper

These little Apple Pie Bundles are a fun alternative to traditional apple pie. Individual desserts like these are so great for a simple grab-and-eat dessert option.

Cranberry Pear Pie

Cranberry Pear Crumb Pie features some of the season’s best flavors with the often overlooked pears plus sweet, tart cranberries. This one is always a crowd-pleaser!

Chocolate Hazelnut Pie in a brown and white pie plate

If you’re looking for a pecan pie alternative, try this Chocolate Hazelnut Pie. We already know how good chocolate and hazelnuts pair with each other, and this pie is a delicious celebration of that fantastic pairing!

Mixed Nut Tart on a white pedestal

Mixed Nut Tart takes my long-standing pecan pie recipe and turns it into a nut lover’s dream. I love the look of it baked in a tart pan, but you can also you a traditional pie pan for this recipe.

Apple Cranberry Crumb Pie

For something a little different in the apple pie department, this Apple Cranberry Crumb Pie is a real winner. The tartness of the cranberries goes so well with the sweetness of the apples and plenty of spices.

Caramel Peanut Butter Brownie Pie

Caramel Peanut Butter Brownie Pie doesn’t feature flavors I specifically associate with this time of year, but it’s so very good that I’ll take any chance I can to make it. With chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter, it’s positively jam-packed with flavor!

Cream Cheese-Filled Pear Tart

If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe, try this Cream Cheese-Filled Pear Tart. Store-bought puff pastry is one of my favorite short-cut ingredients, and it makes for a wonderfully delicate crust for a fantastic filling.

Macaroon Tart

I’m a big, big fan of coconut, and this Macaroon Tart is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. It’s reminiscent of a chess pie, but with a sweet coconut twist!

Pecan Hand Pies on a dark surface

These Pecan Hand Pies are another great grab-and-eat pie option. They’re made with one of my favorite pastry doughs and have a less gooey filling than traditional pecan pie. (No corn syrup, either!)

Cranberry Cheesecake Pie

Cranberry Cheesecake Pie is always one of my most popular recipes this time of year. And for good reason! It’s cheesecake, it’s pie, and it’s wonderfully delicious!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Pie

The combination of pecans, chocolate, and coconut is one of my favorites, and you’ll get plenty of it in this Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Pie!

Brown Butter Chess Pie

I love the simplicity of chess pie, and this Brown Butter Chess Pie keeps that simplicity with just one extra step of browning butter. As much as I love the original, this may be my favorite chess pie!

Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie | Bake or Break

For a rich, gooey pie, it’s tough to beat this Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie. There’s a layer of chocolate ganache underneath all of that gooey, oat-filled deliciousness.

Apple Pecan Cream Cheese Tart

Apple Pecan Cream Cheese Tart is one of those desserts that looks elegant and impressive, but it’s really simple to make. You won’t need to make a traditional pie crust for this one, either, as it uses a graham cracker crust!

Peanut Butter Chess Pie

Peanut butter lovers, you won’t want to miss this Peanut Butter Chess Pie. If you’ve got peanut butter in your pantry, then odds are you have everything you need to make this pie!

Hot Fudge Pie | Bake or Break

Hot Fudge Pie is a fantastic chocolate delight. It’s thick and fudgy and just all-out delicious!

Deep Dish Pecan Pie | Bake or Break

If you can’t get enough of all that sweet, gooey filling in a pecan pie, then you’re going to love this Deep Dish Pecan Pie. It’s made in a springform pan so that you can have much, much more filling!

Classic Apple Pie | Bake or Break

Classic desserts are classic for a reason. Classic Apple Pie is a Thanksgiving staple, and I know I’ll never turn down a slice!

Pecan Cheesecake Pie is two great desserts in one. Anytime pie meets cheesecake, I’m so there.

Caramel Chess Tart | Bake or Break

While there’s technically no caramel in this Caramel Chess Tart, it has a wonderful caramel flavor, thanks to plenty of brown sugar.

Mississippi Mud Pie | Bake or Break

Chocolate is welcome at every celebration in my book, and this Mississippi Mud Pie is a fantastic option. I just love all those sweet, rich layers!

Apple-Pear Butter Pie | Bake or Break

Whether you make your own apple butter or prefer store-bought, this Apple-Pear Butter Pie with Gingersnap Crust is such a great way to make delicious use of it. And that gingersnap crust is the perfect pairing for that sweet filling!

Apple Crumb Pie

Apple Crumb Pie offers all the things you love about apple pie but without an elaborate pie crust topping. Just a simple crumb topping is all you need to top this pie!
