There’s a lot of debate about what makes Thanksgiving food so special. Is it the turkey or the sides, the stuffing or the sweet potato casserole, the meal itself or the leftovers the next day? These are tough questions that we’re not yet prepared to answer, but one thing we do know for sure is that we wait with bated breath all year long for the pie.

Pumpkin, pecan and even apple make us happily test the limits of our stomachs after an epic feast. They are worth every painful bite, but they aren’t the only pies worth baking up this Thanksgiving. We’ve rounded up 20 must-try pies, many of them classic, some of them new twists, and all of them a perfect ending to a beautiful holiday meal and weekend.
