Pecan Pie

Rating: Unrated
Rich, buttery, and oh-so-simple, the classic pecan pie has earned its place as a Thanksgiving mainstay. It's also a wonderful choice to make ahead of time since it will need several hours to cool before serving. Dollop with freshly whipped and barely sweetened cream to balance out the bold sweetness of this pie.

Tomato Slab Pie

Spiced Pear Pie with Buckwheat Crumble

Pie is essential on the Thanksgiving dessert table but it's nice to have an option that's a little outside the standard pumpkin-pecan lineup. This recipe for a seasonal pear pie from renowned Southern chef Scott Peacock fits the bill. Peacock takes the humble crumble pie to the next level by folding buckwheat flour into the streusel topping, creating a nutty, more wholesome flavor for this pear-filled stunner.

Apple Rose Tart

Apple tarts deliver a more concentrated apple flavor than the more common double-crust pies, and you don't have to wait hours for them to cool. Using different apple varieties pays off in both taste and beauty here. A peeled Granny Smith makes a tart center; unpeeled Pink Ladies give the outer petals a delicate blush. A mandolin makes quick work out of thinly (and evenly!) slicing the apples, and a little grated ginger mixed with apricot jam provides a spicy-sweet base that lets the fruit truly blossom.

Corn, Tomato, and Zucchini Galette

Need a sensational vegetarian main dish? This galette with buttery pastry filled with roasted summer vegetables and a mustard cheese sauce is just the thing. Most of the time is hands off, while dough chills or tomatoes roast, and the dough and the sauce can be made ahead if you prefer.
