Pumpkin Pie, Who? These Are the Best Pecan Pie Recipes for Thanksgiving (1)

Looking for some easy pecan pie recipes to grace your Thanksgiving dessert table? You've come to the right place! Here, we've rounded up the best pecan pie recipe ideas we could find in the hopes that you'll bake and serve one up as soon as possible. Whether you're hoping to impress your guests with a delicious homemade pecan pie on your Thanksgiving menu or are just craving a fall dessert for a weeknight dinner, we guarantee you won't regret going the homemade route. After all, store-bought pie might be nice, but a homemade pie recipe can be flat-out extraordinary.

Not super confident in the kitchen? Not to worry: We've got options for every level of baking experience. Just try a slow cooker pecan pie recipe (yup, you read that right!) for make-ahead, time-saving decadence. Conversely, if you consider yourself more of an expert, opt for a more challenging recipe, like our favorite chocolate pretzel pecan pie. Whatever you choose, we're here to warn you that once you make one of these easy twists on the classic Southern dessert, your family will be begging you to make it on an annual basis (if not more regularly!). Dark chocolate, bourbon, sweet potatoes, rich molasses, and more additions will please your palate and keep you coming back for more.
