November is upon us, and you know what that means! Turkey and stuffing. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Pie and pie. Candied yams and broccoli casserole. Cranberry sauce and dinner rolls. Pie and pie.
Yup, it’s time to break out those tastefully stretchy pants and indulge in the one day of the year when gorging ourselves is not only accepted, it’s encouraged. Did we mention there will be pie?
Clearly, pie is one of our favorite parts of Thanksgiving, and since you’re here, we’re guessing you love it too. The only caveat we have is that sometimes, the same pumpkin and pecan pies do start to get a little old. I mean, we’d never turn a slice down or anything, but we’re definitely open to exploring other options this year.
And options we have. These updated versions of Thanksgiving pies will give Grandma’s recipes a run for their money. The best part? They’re deceptively easy to make.
