It’s just not Thanksgiving without it, right? Try Bobby Flay’s recipe, which has lots of spice, a crumbly graham cracker crust and a bourbon-maple whipped cream.

Deep-Dish Apple Pie

Ina Garten does not mess around when it comes to apple pie. She uses an oversize pie dish, which means there’s room for 4 pounds(!) of Granny Smith apples between the crusts.

Apple-Pumpkin-Pecan Pie

You might call this ultimate mash-up pie the dessert for people who can’t decide what they want. We consider it the treat that ensures you never have to choose.
