Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we couldn't be more excited for the big day. When Turkey Day finally arrives, don't forget to pace yourself. Sure, the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes are great, but dessert is where it's at! We're huge fans of the classic pumpkin pie, but come to think of it, we're huge fans of all the dessert pies, especially when they're served hot and topped with ice cream.
With the pie in the sky in our eye, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found plenty of great pie recipes that'll make your holiday sing. Just don't forget the ice cream and/or whipped cream!
There are two schools of thought on pie: some people love to make everything from scratch, including the crust; others are fine with a store-bought crust because it saves time & energy. No surprise here, we're fans of both options, so long as they lead to delicious pie. Alright, let's make some pies!
