Apple Cider Pie
Nothing says autumn and Thanksgiving like fresh apples. Add in the warm comforting spice of cider and you’ve got a riot of flavor and sensation for my taste buds. While we love old fashion apple pie, it’s fun to give things a little twist. So this recipe for Apple Cider Pie from Dorothy of Crazy For Just is the perfect pie for apple lovers.

Sweet Corn Pie
You may or may not know that sweet corn in a pie is a thing, but it is down South. And if you think corn and butter and sugar aren’t delicious as the filling of a creamy pie you haven’t had a pie.

Old Fashioned Candy Roaster Squash Pie
More vintage southern pies! If you can find a Candy Roaster Squash, you’ll be in for a treat when you make this pie. With a consistency similar to sweet potato or pumpkin this pie is delicious and also very healthy (since you are getting your veggies in!). This may not be a surprising recipe for cooks out there who are already preparing butternut squash like sweet potatoes or carrots with cinnamon and brown sugar, but if this is new to you – we promise, it’s quite tasty!

North Carolina and Virginia are known for their peanuts, and since they are in season during Thanksgiving it’s the perfect time to make this only-in-the-South dessert for Thanksgiving. There are so many great recipes for this pie, but we love Wendi of Loaves And Dishes recipe.
She uses a cracker crust (We like Ritz!) which creates a nostalgia for the peanut butter crackers we had as kids. It’s so good!
