Happy Thanksgiving! 

Thanksgiving dinner without pie would be a True Crime.

So let’s take a pie poll. Which is the best: pumpkin, apple, pecan, sweet potato, mince, or something different? 

Please vote for your favorite pie and feel free to include the recipe, too! 

One of the many blessings I give thanks for is being part of the terrific Kill Zone community. 

Wishing you and yours a day filled with love, fellowship, and good food.

  1. My favorite is black walnut pie, followed by sweet potato. And then key lime, triple lemon, and blueberry custard. I used to be the one who brought the pies. 😊

  2. Pumpkin is traditional for Thanksgiving but this year, we’re having apple since we had extra apples around.

  3. Good morning, Debbie. And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Favorite pie: Pecan
    Recipe: Get out of the kitchen and let my wife work her magic.

    Today, I’m thankful for many things, including this TKZ family, and people who will read what I write without telling me how crazy I am.

    Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Debbie & TKZers!

    I love all of the above. Haven’t had minced since my childhood, but I can still taste the awesomeness. Favorites are pumpkin, apple (we’re having caramel apple pie a la mode today), and pecan.

  5. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without my Mom’s pecan pie. The turkey is in the oven and our feast is 4 hours away.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  6. Pumpkin pie has never been a favorite of mine, though I don’t mind it with a large dollop of whipped cream.

    But give me good old Apple, warm, with a scoop of vanilla on top.

  7. It’s a three way tie between pumpkin, pecan and sweet potato pie for me, Debbie. I haven’t had mince meat pie since I was a child. It was the speciality of a great grandmother of mine and was a recipe on my mom’s side. Since lost, sadly.

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. That’s a great question, Debbie, one that I am uniquely qualified to answer, as a common sewer…I mean connoisseur…of fine food.

    For holidays…pumpkin is tough to beat. For the rest of the year…the difficult though not impossible to find custard pie.

    That said, I’ll paraphrase what Robert Mitchum said about beer: “Any pie at the bottom of the refrigerator in the morning is good pie.”

    Happy Thanksgiving, Debbie, and Happy Thanksgiving to one and all who visit these pages and make them what they are.

    • LOL, Joe! Glad to have a true expert weigh in.

      Custard pie is difficult to make–that’s probably why it’s hard to find. My attempts have been middling.

      Have a wonderful turkey day!

  9. #1-Cherry pie made from scratch, no canned cherry pie filling, please!


    Both with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (whipped with my mixer, not the pretend stuff in the freezer case! 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
