9 holiday pies pecan blueberry cheese cake and pumpkin

I love Thanksgiving – it is actually my favorite holiday to gather friends and family around the table. It’s the holiday that is the most relaxed. No hustle and bustle of presents. And the candy from Halloween is almost gone by then.

Thanksgiving is about great food, conversation, and time together. Oh, okay, and well, football, too.

I love that my hubby and kids play in a Turkey Bowl with other family and friends every year. Then come back here to a table spread that is to die for. Each year, we rotate on where we spend Thanksgiving, but this year, I am so excited to be able to host it on our house.

While my hubby is trying to convince me to skip the turkey this year and do rotisserie chicken, one thing that won’t be missing from our table is pie. Lots and lots of pie. In the search for the best of the best, I found my favorite, and today I am sharing them with you.

It is never too early to start planning your Thanksgiving feast because you may want to try 1, 2, or 5 of these out before then. Enjoy! XOXO San

Pie baking tips for this holiday season:

How do you know when a pecan pie is done?

Follow baking times indicated in the recipe. Typically a traditional pecan pie is 30 to 35 minutes. You will know your pecan pie is done at the first signs of solidity in the center of the pie. To check this do not shake the pie! Instead insert a knife in the center of the pie, if it comes out clean then it is done. There should not be an “eggy” like batter sticking to the knife. You can also check the internal temperature of a pecan pan, it will be done with the cooking thermometer reaches 200 degrees F. (93 degrees C.) I just use the knife method.

Can you store pecan pie at room temperature?

You should plan to refrigerate the pecan pie unless you’re planning to serve it within two hours of baking.

What pies do not need to be refrigerated and which pies do?

Always refrigerate cream, custard, pumpkin, mousse, chiffon, or any other pies containing eggs or dairy, once they cooled. They will last for two days this way.  Fruit pies can stand at room temperature for two days and be fine. Hope this helps.
