What’s Your Favorite Holiday Pie?

Hey Ya’ll,

I’ve often heard it said, that there’s nothing more American than apple pie…

So I guess it makes sense that during the American holiday season, pies become the grand finale and shining star of Thanksgiving dinners and holiday spreads all over the United States.

In fact, the Pilgrims and early settlers brought their pie recipes with them to America, adapting to the ingredients and techniques available to them in the New World.

The very first American pies were based on berries and fruits pointed out to them by the Native North Americans.

As a kid growing up in Texas, I remember my mom having these great pie plates that had a different recipe for different pies printed on them. Now they are being sold as vintage on websites like Etsy! Anyhow, we had a set of three and the cheesecake was always my favorite… yum!

So, on the heels of Thanksgiving Day, I thought it would be fun to do a “Pie Poll”, by having all of you answer a few questions in the comment section below.

1) What is your favorite kind of pie and do you like to bake it yourself or buy it from a specific store?

2) Do you like to eat your favorite pie à la mode (with a scoop of ice cream) or all by itself?

I can’t wait to hear about your favorites and find out how each of you and your families celebrate the holidays with classic American pies. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. My favorite is pecan pie, and I’m going to try to make it for the first time tomorrow. And I eat it without ice cream, so I can taste it better! 🙂 (I’m also making pumpkin pie, just to have variety.) Have a great Thanksgiving!

      • The pecan pie was so yummy! Although I got pretty scared once I counted the calories. Lol. And as for the pumpkin– everyone liked it (except me because I don’t like pumpkin pie). 🙂 What pie did you have?? I did have a great holiday– hope you did too!

        • Haha, funny you should say that… I am not actually the biggest fan of pie either! No pumpkin for me, but I do have a BIG time sweet tooth…so I too have regrets about all of the high-calorie desserts consumed over the holiday!

          • Ha ha! You only mentioned pie, so I didn’t tell you everything else I ate. I also made vanilla cupcakes, spice cake, and butterscotch cookies. 🙂

          • Lol, baking is serious stuff, Brian. I have plans to make 10 different types of desserts (mostly cookies) for Christmas. It’s a secret for now, though. Come visit sometime– I posted some of the stuff I made in previous years. 🙂
