12 Non-Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving

Check out 12 Non-Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving!
by Natalie McLaury at Foodie.com
At 28 years old, I have yet to host Thanksgiving. I have no doubt my time will come and until then, I'm pretty okay with being the sous chef and letting either my mom or my father-in-law, both fantastic cooks, do the bulk of the cooking! This year we'll be with Ryan's family for Thanksgiving and Ryan will actually be smoking a turkey to serve alongside the traditional roasted turkey. An aunt has the desserts covered, but our family abides by the law that there's no such thing as too many desserts, so I'm contemplating what I can contribute to the table next week.

I'm already pretty sold on remaking the Pumpkin Layer Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and I know Aunt Julie will be bringing Banana Pudding (non-traditional for Thanksgiving, maybe, but the best) and her famous chocolate cookies. Even with all of those options, I can't help but think we need some pie. It's Thanksgiving after all! I know a lot of you don't like pumpkin pie (don't worry, we can still be friends) and since our bases are covered when it comes to a pumpkin dessert, I've instead put together a collection of non-pumpkin pies that can be found on Foodie.

A few years ago I made the Salted Caramel Pie and I'm still pretty partial to that one, although part of me says we're already abandoning the traditional desserts so maybe we should go for the crowd-pleasing Reese's Fudge Pie! From chocolate pies to pecan pies to Biscoff pies to pie milkshakes, I have some serious decision-making to do before next week!
