If there is one dessert that is typical of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, it definitely has to be pie. Various pies are popular throughout the country, and you will likely see at least one on each table around the country when the big meal is finished.

Here are four wildly popular and traditional pies that you’ll find on Thanksgiving tables every year.

Apple Pie

Apple pie is a Thanksgiving favorite that combines crust with an apple filling that includes sliced apples (usually green), cinnamon, and sugar. It’s even more delicious when topped with vanilla ice cream.

Sweet Potato Pie

If you find yourself in the south of the United States, there are some largely regional pies that are absolutely worth trying. Sweet potato pie is an intriguing twist on pumpkin pie, replacing the traditional filling’s vegetable with this sweet tuber.

Pecan Pie

Another southern regional pie, this pecan version is unbelievably gooey and rich. You might not be able to eat a lot of it, but every bite that you’re able to have before becoming overwhelmed by the sweetness is to die for.

Pumpkin Pie

Well, if there’s one pie that’s emblematic of Thanksgiving above all the rest, it has to be pumpkin pie. This dessert, which is made with a filling that combines pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and eggs, among other ingredients, is a fall favorite.
