Rustic Apple Tart

Rating: 3.5 stars 257
The store-bought puff pastry crust makes quick work of this delicious apple tart. 

Pecan Pie

Rating: 3.5 stars 443
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. 

Black-Bottom Pie

Rating: 4 stars 33
The creamy, bittersweet-chocolate "bottom" of this early-twentieth-century icebox pie rests on a graham cracker crust. The pile of ethereal meringue on top includes a hint of rum.

Pumpkin-Cheesecake Pie with Gingersnap Crust

Rating: 4 stars 164
Spicy gingersnaps stand in for the more traditional graham crackers in the crust of this Pumpkin-Cheesecake Pie, and make an excellent foil for the rich pumpkin-cream cheese filling. A border of meringue piped into leaves and bruleed with a kitchen torch takes the pie to the next level.
