Thanksgiving means coming together with friends and family to share a meal and give thanks. No matter who you celebrate Thanksgiving with, you're bound to be doing some eating, and possibly a lot of cooking. Thanksgiving pies can often end up being last on the list when you're preparing a big meal for a large group. Before you run to the supermarket for a last minute, store bought pie, consider making one of your own.

You don't have to slave for days preparing a pie that tastes as good as it looks. In fact, many pies can be made a couple of days in advance to save you prep time. With the right ingredients and a simple recipe, you can whip up a delightful, beautiful pie for your entire family to enjoy. You'll have one more thing to give thanks for this year: Easy baking without the fuss.
