Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and the desserts that are made for this holiday are a big part of the experience. The Class of 2020 and the Class of 2018 were both given a survey where they voted on their favorite kinds of pie.  Crowd favorites included Apple, Pumpkin, and Key Lime pie, but why not try something new with these nine recipes?

Though Katherine Fernandez (‘19) only enjoys a few kinds of pies, chocolate cream pie is one her her favorites.

“I really don’t like pie that much but, I like chocolate cream pie because I love chocolate and pie. The texture of the filling is smooth and I love it, the pie is cool and refreshing,” said Fernandez.

“Chocolate Pecan Pie is my favorite, it reminds me of the holidays. My mom makes it every year,” said Kimpland.

This recipe requires more baking compared to the other pies. It consists of making smaller hand pies which can be harder to make, and precision is important during the process.
