When it comes to Thanksgiving, the sides always seem to take the spotlight. But I’m here to tell you that any of these 35 Thanksgiving Pies might just steal the whole show! 

Want to try a new twist on a classic? Indulge in maple pecan pie, dark chocolate pecan pie, or bourbon pecan pie! Looking for traditional pies? Go for good ole pumpkin pie or apple crumble. Ready to mix it up? Treat yourself to coconut cream pie, spiced pear pie, and so much more!

From chocolate lovers to those that prefer a creamy custard to anyone that appreciates a flaky crust or beautiful lattice top, this list has everything you need for an unforgettable dessert table. Treat yourself to one (or five) of the best Thanksgiving pies this holiday season!

1. Pumpkin Pie

Sometimes, you just can’t beat a traditional pumpkin pie! Ditch the sweetened condensed milk found in some recipes for a traditional spiced whipped pumpkin filling on top of a flaky, buttery homemade crust for an irresistible treat.

2. Sweet Potato Pie

Add a little Southern flair to your table with an easy, oh-so-delicious sweet potato pie! Simple ingredients like baked sweet potatoes, butter, milk, eggs, and sugar come together for some old fashioned delight.

3. Apple Crumble Pie

Get ready for the juiciest apple pie filling bursting with fresh flavor nestled in a flaky butter crust and topped with the perfect crisp crumble! Best of all, it’s super easy to make with everyday ingredients.

4. Peanut Butter Pie

This silky filling is melt-in-your-mouth delicious and perfect for the peanut butter lovers in your life! Whip it all together, pour over your choice of pie crust, and watch this dessert be devoured in seconds.

5. Maple Pecan Pie

There’s nothing quite like brown sugar and maple syrup to create that deep, rich flavor we all love! Sticky-sweet pecan filling is balanced with a sprinkle of sea salt and served over a buttery crust for pecan pie perfection.

6. Banana Cream Pie

Treat yourself to a creamy custard pudding made from scratch layered with fresh-sliced bananas and a rich vanilla layer. Serve over your favorite crust, top with mounds of whipped cream, and enjoy!

7. Coconut Cream Pie

Want to know the secret to the best coconut cream pie you’ve ever had? Ditch the stringy sweetened coconut and use shredded coconut instead! It has the perfect flavor without being too strong plus the most amazing, luscious texture.

8. Salty Honey Pie

The honey and melted brown sugar give the creamy custard-based filling the most amazing caramel flavor! It’s scrumptious without being overly-sweet, and the flaky sea salt sprinkled on top turns it into utter perfection.

9. Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie

Chocolate lovers, rejoice! This pecan pie gets an added layer of chocolate for pure Thanksgiving dessert bliss. You can use dark, milk, semi-sweet, or white chocolate to make your perfect pie.

10. Dutch Apple Pie

Granny smith and pink lady apples with a touch of cinnamon come together for a rich apple pie filling that has just the right balance of tartness. Serve over a flakey crust and finish with plenty of butter crumb topping!

11. Bourbon Pecan Pie

Take your pecan pie to the next level with a touch of warm spicy bourbon! The mellow smokiness really amps up the sweet and salty flavor of this old-fashioned classic for a dessert you’ll want to make again and again.

12. Butternut Squash Pie

The moment you find fresh butternut squash from your local store, farmer’s market, or in your own garden, you have to try this recipe! The fresh squash puree is brighter, sweeter, smoother, and generally knocks the socks off canned pumpkin puree.

13. Spiced Pear Pie

Did you know that pears peak in fall and winter? Put the harvest to good use with this delightful recipe! Ginger and honey add to the fruit’s subtle sweetness while the buttery black walnut crumb topping balances out the flavor.

14. Chocolate Cream Pie

With a pre-made crust, instant chocolate pudding, and creamy whipped topping, this will be one of the fastest pie recipes you ever make! Best of all, there’s no baking involved, leaving your oven free for the rest of your feast.

15. Snickerdoodle Pie

The secret to this incredible pie is pouring a homemade cinnamon syrup over the cake-like filling so that the flavors swirl and meld as it bakes, leaving a sugary, crunchy layer on top!

16. Chess Pie

The sweet, rich flavor of brown sugar takes chess pie to a whole new level. Best of all, you only need a few everyday ingredients and about 45 minutes to whip it up. Top with Reddi-Wip and enjoy!

17. Cranberry Pear Pie

Juicy pears, tart cranberries, sugar, and spices will make this wonderful holiday pie a fast favorite! Finish with a braided top or lattice pattern and serve with vanilla ice cream for a total showstopper of a dessert.

18. Apple Butter Pie

Who can resist a custard-based pie made with cozy apple butter and topped with a layer of cinnamon sugar? The crackly crust on top is simply irresistible, and it all bakes in a gluten-free pie crust that tastes every bit as amazing as a traditional crust.

19. Pecan Cream Pie

Classic pecan pie gets a lighter twist thanks to the fluffy filling made with cream cheese, fresh whipped cream, and pecans. The only thing you have to bake is the crust, then everything else sets in the refrigerator!

20. Caramel Pie

For the kind of custard-style caramel pudding pie that would make any southern grandma proud, you have to try this homemade recipe. The creamy and decadent texture is downright heavenly!

21. Apple Slab Pie

Never heard of a slab pie before? It’s an all-butter pie dough baked on a baking sheet and served in squares for the perfect shareable dessert! You can rest assured that all forks will be drawn for dibs on the last piece.

22. Maple Walnut Pie

This pie may look like your classic pecan, but trust me when I say it has a flavor profile all its own! With maple syrup in place of corn syrup and less sugar, it has a creamy, slightly sweet filling with a crunchy, nutty top that’s beautifully balanced.

23. Kentucky Derby Pie

Have you ever wondered what a chocolate chip pecan cookie served in a flaky crust would taste like? You’re about to find out! Top with whipped cream or scoop of ice cream for a decadent dessert that will have everyone reaching for seconds.

24. Butterscotch Pie

Homemade golden-sweet butterscotch pudding filling over an easy spiced Biscoff cookie crust and topped with whipped cream is the kind of fall treat you’ll be dreaming about all year long!

25. Cranberry Orange Custard Pie

If you’re looking for a unique pie to enjoy during the holiday season, try silky sweet custard laced with orange zest and tart cranberries served in a perfectly flaky pie crust. It’s stunning to look at and even better to eat!


26. Apple Cranberry Pie

The sweet, juicy apples and tart cranberries pair together beautifully inside a crispy and flaky golden crust! I highly recommend serving this pie warm with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

27. Gingerbread Cream Pie

This simple pie made with vanilla pudding and warm spices is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert table! It only takes about 15 minutes to prep and can be refrigerated until you’re ready to serve.

28. German Chocolate Pie

This no-bake German chocolate pie with a decadent Oreo cookie crust is heaven-on-earth for chocolate lovers! A coconut pecan topping makes the sinfully sweet pie one you’ll want to whip up all year round.

29. Cranberry Cheesecake Pie

Layers of sweet, tangy cheesecake and a tart homemade cranberry filling finished with a crunchy cinnamon sugar topping is an irresistible way to shake up your traditional holiday dessert menu!

30. Caramel Apple Pie

Tart apples and caramel are a match made in heaven! Bake them together into a flaky pie crust with a crunchy crumble topping, then drizzle with the rest of the caramel sauce after the bake for a truly divine dessert.

31. Lemon Meringue Pie

You’re going to love this homemade lemon pie topped with a quick homemade meringue! It’s full of wonderful lemon flavor that will satisfy in any season. Best of all, it only takes about 10 minutes to prep before baking!

32. Sweet Onion Turkey Pie

Who says pies are only for dessert? This savory Thanksgiving pie is fantastic to make with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving! Mix with caramelized Vidalia onions, eggs, and seasoning with a touch of Tabasco sauce to help balance out the richness of the pie.

33. Turkey Pot Pie

Another great way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey is in a delicious filling alongside potatoes and veggies baked between two layers of flaky, buttery homemade pie crust! This is one the whole family is sure to love.

34. Spinach Ricotta Pie

This recipe is a great way to shake up your Thanksgiving sides! Buttery crust, spinach, and plenty of cheese can also be served as a meatless meal and is a delicious option for vegetarian guests.
