“How many pies should we bake, dad? There are only 5 of us for dinner.”



“Two. Because there is nothing better on God’s green earth than apple pie for breakfast.”

“Ah yes, of course.”

We are making two apple pies for Thanksgiving this year, both with cranberries. The plan is for me to make make the pie dough on Wednesday and for dad to make the pies on Thursday morning, before the turkey goes in. For those of you still deciding what pie(s) to make, assembled is a collection of Thanksgiving pie recipes from Simply Recipes, and links to several delicious sounding recipes from other food blogs.

    I hate pies!*

    Growing up Mom wanted only two things for Thanksgiving, mincemeat pie and pecan pie. There was always a discussion about it being pronounced Pee-khan not pee-can as the pee-can is what you keep under the bed.

    *however, being married to an Englishman means I still have to make them for him.

    Thanks for mentioning me. My strategy this year will be prayer, actually. I have two cranberry tarts, one apple pie and one pumpkin cheesecake to make before noon on Thursday and got back from work too late last night to start. Can we say Baking All-Nighter? I hope you have a lovely T-Day Elise!

    Our pie strategy is to have a pie night extravaganza (it’s tonight!), where we’re inviting 50 friends over to eat pie at our house. Each family (there are 15 coming) will bring a pie to share, and we’ll also be providing the wassail. Everyone can sample all the different types of pies they want, and everyone goes home happy. That way, we won’t have to make lots of pies that we’ll have to eat all by ourselves on Thanksgiving and the days following. It sure saves calories, if you are counting them! We’re making a pecan-butterscotch chip pie to share. Mmm pie.
