Thanksgiving Pies :o)

This year, everyone seemed to ask me to bring pies for whatever Thanksgiving events we were participating in, so I made a new one for each event just so you could have lots of fun new recipes. Enjoy!

Mom found this recipe and asked me to bring it to dinner. Very good. Kind of like my magic cookie bars - in a pie with bourbon! Yummy! :o)

Kentucky Derby Pie

9 inch unbaked pie crust
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract or 2 tbs. bourbon
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Hershey's Chocolate Chips
1 cup pecans
Festive whipped Cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In small mixer bowl cream butter, add eggs and vanilla or bourbon. Combine sugar and flour together, then add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden. Cool about one hour. Delicious served warm & garnished with Whipped Cream. Serves 8.

This is a new recipe for me, courtesy of Amy Jackson. I brought this as an experiment, and my dad says that it is his favorite dessert ever!

Whitestone Pie


My cousin asked me to bring pumpkin pie for my mom's side of the family's Thanksgiving dinner. Always a classic. Also my best friend, Dick's favorite. :0)

Pumpkin Pie


I made these for our Arkansas Traveler potluck Thanksgiving dinner - they were a huge hit!

Pecan Pie
1 cup Karo Corn Syrup (Dark or Light or 1/2 of each kind)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 1/2 cups (6 oz) pecans (whole or chips whichever U prefer)
1 unbaked 9" deep dish pie crust

Melt butter and add sugar, beaten eggs, karo syrup, & vanilla. Mix well with spoon and add pecans. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven on center rack for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 2 hours.

Ok, so I didn't make this one - my aunt did, but it's definitely worth including. Yum! :o)

Lemon Meringue Pie

3 3/8 ounces Jell-O Lemon Pudding and Pie Filling
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups water
3 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
baked 9" pie shell
6 tablespoons sugar

Combine pie filling, sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan. Blend in egg yolks, then add remaining water. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a full boil, about 5 minutes, stirring twice. Add lemon juice and butter and blend well. Pour into baked pie shell. Beat egg whites until foamy throughout. Gradually add remaining 6 Tbsp sugar, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until meringue stands in stiff peaks. Spread over pie filling. Bake at 425 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes, or until meringue is delicately browned. Cool at least 4 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
