The best part of Thanksgiving is the pie. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. OK, it's a fact I made up, but I still think it's true. Everyone could use a few easy apple pie recipes for Thanksgiving tucked in their back pocket for when the perfect pie occasion comes along. One of those occasions is finally here (Thanksgiving), and it's time to celebrate by baking as many as you possibly can.
I believe there are only two types of people in the world — those who like pie, and those who don't. If you fall in the latter camp, this roundup isn't for you. If you are a sane normal person in the former camp, I welcome you with open arms. Apple pies are the most traditional of the fruit pies, but that doesn't mean they are boring. There are all sorts of easy tricks like adding caramel, or making it a deep dish, to make the dessert just as exciting as its biggest rival: cake.
Note: In my head, cake and pie are arch enemies. Cakes have a monopoly on birthdays, but pies have a monopoly on holidays, and doesn't everyone enjoy Thanksgiving more than they enjoy getting old? I thought so.
I did the searching for you, and am happy to present a list of my favorite apple pie recipes for this holiday and the next. Happy eating.
