Mini Pumpkin Pies by Fed & Fit

A classic recipe but bite size. Perfect for the smaller, more intimate gathering we are all having for Thanksgiving 2020. The recipe is for 15 mini pies, but there are instructions to pair it down to 10 pies or 5 pies depending on your needs!

Healthy Sweet Potato Pie By Eating Bird Food

A bit sweeter than pumpkin pie, crazy simple AND the recipe calls for a store bought pie shell? Sign me up!! I’m all for simplicity–especially during Thanksgiving when there are so many recipes being pulled together at once.

No Bake Vegan Banana Cream Pie by The Roasted Root

Y’all–Max will lose his mind over this pie. He’s a banana lover and his favorite desserts use some sort of banana, cream (sometimes chocolate) combo. His birthday is in December so I’m planning to make this sometime between now and then! Would be a fun mix up for Thanksgiving too!
No Baking needed AKA won’t take your oven space on turkey day.

S’mores Pie By Brown Eyed Baker

Speaking of delighting the ones we love, our kids will adore everything about this pie. S’mores are there ultimate dessert and this way they get to indulge without the hassle of starting a fire outside. I plan to use gluten free graham crackers for the crust to keep it gluten free. I’m also subbing maple syrup for the corn syrup to keep it Paleo-ish
