We know that pecan is not America’s number one choice when it comes to Thanksgiving pie, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great dessert. With its buttery crust, crunchy pecans and ooey, gooey filling, this pie has the ability to make the most annoying family member seem totally likable ― a much-needed quality by the time dinner’s over.

Sure, there are a great many pecan pies out in the world that have given this pie a bad name ― those with too much corn-syrup filling and not enough pecan flavor should be wiped from the surface of the earth ― but what we have for you below are 18 pecan pie recipes (and pecan pie-inspired recipes) that are truly unforgettable. It’s time to give this pie another chance.
