Desserts are clearly the favorite course at our family’s holiday gathering (there are dozens upon dozens of good dessert recipes in the AllSpice recipe library). We tried our best to narrow down the list to our favorites, categorized by pies, cakes, cobblers, and other delicious treats.
Repeat after us: “Pies aren’t scary.” Baking a pie can feel like a daunting task, but it really doesn’t have to be. Here are a few of our favorite pie recipes for the Thanksgiving spread (we left pumpkin off the list since pumpkin pie recipes are a dime a dozen):
- Apple Pie: Apple pie is always a classic. For you pie purists out there, we know… we cheated in our recipe and used premade pie crusts. Making your own isn’t difficult if you want to go all in. The big debate with apple pie? To cheese or not to cheese? We’re team not-to-cheese 100%!
- Pecan Pie: Who doesn’t love a nutty pie? Pecan pie beautifully combines the flavor of pecans with vanilla and just a touch of citrus.
- Peach Hand Pies: We’re taking a stand. Hand pies are real pies…just portable! Peach pies are the best pies according to AllSpicer Rory. And with this hand pie variety, he’s got a free fist, so we’re not going to argue with him!
You can’t go wrong with a good cake. And the flavor options are literally endless. Here are a few we love from the library: More
