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.

Inspiration and Ideas

Five-Spice Pumpkin Pie with Phyllo Crust

Try this deep-dish pumpkin pie when you need to please both traditional and modern palates at the Thanksgiving table. Adding Chinese five-spice powder to the filling may seem unorthodox, but two of its components (cinnamon and clove) can already be found in standard pumpkin-pie spice. The dramatic crust is delightfully easy to create—just brush butter onto sheets of store-bought phyllo and layer them at different angles in the pan. Finish with freshly whipped cream, and you'll have one mighty fine, crowd-pleasing dessert.

Easy Peach Potpie

Capture that fleeting moment when peaches are flavor-rich and flawless with a pie that won't keep you in the kitchen. Bake them into a vanilla-bourbon nectar, top it off with a flaky round of pastry, and serve warm without breaking a sweat.
