Best Pie Options to Make for the Holidays This Year


Spooky season has come and gone, and now many are looking to the holidays for the next round of holiday glee. We will surround ourselves with family and friends to gorge ourselves on scrumptious dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes. But when all is said and done and everyone is gathered around the TV for the football game, they’ll need something sweet to tide them over. This is where pie comes in handy. It’s the most iconic holiday dessert, and there are a lot of them to choose from. How can you decide which ones to make for your guests? Here are some of the best holiday pie options to make this holiday season.


All hail the great pumpkin! Pumpkin pie is the king of Thanksgiving dessert but can also be enjoyed during the Christmas season. Offering a creamy and rich experience that simply cannot be matched, this dish is an absolute must on this fall holiday. It just wouldn’t be the same without it there to fill our stomachs after the feast is over--be sure to add a hefty dollop of whipped cream on top for good measure.

Caramel Pecan

Another outstanding pie choice this holiday season, pecan pie is great for those that want a little crunch in their dessert. Not only that, but when you turn a basic pecan pie into a caramel one, it transforms that experience into a gooey, sweet, crunchy treat that can’t be beaten. While not the staple pie of Thanksgiving, it is very much adored and is often seen next to the great pumpkin on the dinner table (and rightfully so).

Sweet Potato

You’re already making sweet potato casserole, why not use the leftover potatoes for a pie? Topped with marshmallows, this is a fitting pie to prepare for Thanksgiving feasts. Sure, it can also be made for Christmas, but there’s just something about it that makes it taste great after turkey and cranberry sauce.

Chocolate Cream

Who doesn’t like chocolate? This smooth, chocolaty slice of heaven is more than welcome at our dinner tables. Full of creamy chocolate filling and topped with whipped cream or meringue, you can expect this plate to be licked clean.


This delicious pie isn’t just for the Fourth of July. Sweet, fruity, and baked to perfection, apple pie is among the most popular dessert options on nearly every holiday, and the same goes for Thanksgiving. Sprinkled with a little cinnamon and sugar, it is a great choice if you need a dish to satiate sweet cravings this holiday.

Need to Make Room for More?

Feeling stuffed but haven’t tried every flavor yet? It might be time to make some room for more by getting some physical activity in. Doing squats, lifting weights, and running on the treadmill are all great ways to burn off some extra calories so that you can continue to eat the food you love. Cardio is one of the best ways to lose unwanted weight, but if you aren’t much of a runner, you can opt for walks, cycling, swimming, or playing a sport with your friends. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes when performing long periods of physical activity so you don’t develop heel spurs or bunions, otherwise, you’ll need to seek medical treatment from a trained professional, such as those at Northwest Surgery Center. If you need a quick boost to get the blood pumping then head outside with your family and play a game of backyard football, this way you’ll all feel like you got some physical activity and did something as a family as well!

Dig in!

Whichever assortment of pies you decide to make for this upcoming holiday season, you can bet there won’t be any leftovers. What’s that? You’re hungry for more? There are countless other pies to choose from, like cherry, coconut cream, blueberry, and lemon meringue! These are just a few of the best, so try a slice, try two, try them all! Your guests will leave full, satisfied, and looking forward to next year’s feast.
