Thanksgiving is known for having its famous turkey dinners for families to share each year. However, it is no secret that having pies for dessert is definitely the main focus on Thanksgiving Day.

Aside from the classic Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, there are many other pie choices that you should consider for the upcoming holiday.

  1. Bourbon-Pecan Pie

This delicious Southern pie tastes of dark caramel, toasted nuts, and a bit of bourbon. The alcohol evaporates when you bake the pie, and when fully cooked, the pie has a gooey consistency. The scrumptious bourbon-pecan pie has an intensely sweet vanilla baseline when baked properly with both light and dark corn syrup.

  1. Double-Crust Apple-Apricot Pie

The Double-Crust Apple-Apricot Pie is an exciting spin on the classic apple pie. With a baked apple center, dried apricots are added to enhance the flavors of this dish. Topped off with orange zest, this dish is the perfect twist to the apple pie and will be an exciting edition to your Thanksgiving dessert.
