Pies, Pies, Pies

If you're a last minute-baker like me and you're still looking for dessert inspiration for your Thanksgiving feast - look no further! Here are some tried-and-tested pies, tarts (and one shortbread) that will be happily welcomed to any holiday table. P.S. If you're looking for new reasons to make fun of me, click here.

1. Apple Pie
This is the classic, and this recipe will wow just about everyone. Use pie dough scraps to make decorative cutouts if you're feeling crafty.

2. Quadruple Berry Pie
This juicy dessert is more of a summer staple - but if you use a frozen berry mix - defrosted and patted very dry, it will be a welcome surprise after dinner.

3. Pumpkin Cheesecakes
Ok, not a pie, but still a perfect addition to the banquet - pumpkin and cheesecake are a great combination.

4. Pear-Filled Shortbread
Also not a pie, but a seriously, sweet, seriously delicious, unique dessert. 

5. Snickerdoodle Pie
This is a slightly off-the-beaten-track pie, but delicious nonetheless - and really amazing when served warm.

6. Mini Apple Pies
My last pie suggestion is the ultimate in last-minute desserts - and the quickest option  here. Storebought crusts (and even store bought pie filling - I won't tell) make these a snap to whip up.

Have a great weekend!
