30 Amazing Pie Recipes for Thanksgiving

This is the first year I have decided to do some taste testing of pies before I officially baked for Thanksgiving. My favorite of all holiday pies is my stand by, but with a slight ingredient twist, Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.  

My second pie I tried this week was a Pumpkin-Chocolate Cheesecake Pie I found in the November 2008 Better Homes and Garden Magazine. I tore it out and am just getting to it now.

Really probably just found it after all these years. I will be sharing the pumpkin pie recipes as well as 18 amazing pie recipes to get you in the mood to bake or just eat.




First things first. Had to show you the middle too.


Basically a layered pie with both a cheesecake and pumpkin pie layers. It is simple to make,  I actually made both of these pies before heading to the bus stop.


VERDICT:  They liked the pie but want to stick to regular pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. If I made it again I will add more flavor to the cheesecake layer.
