Published: November 21, 2008 at 10:41 AMDon't get me wrong, I love apple pie. But, the question was about Thanksgiving. Pumkin is so autumn. While you can get pumkin pie out of season, I most associate it with fall and Thanksgiving. Although apple is also a fall fruit, you can get it anywhere, anytime.

Published: November 21, 2008 at 10:56 AMPumpkin is good, but I am always a sucker for Apple Pie when done right. A good mix of sweet and sour. Golden Delicious apples seem to make the best pies in my experience. We always pick some every fall from a local orchard. But pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and others are right there too.
Published: November 21, 2008 at 1:51 PMPersonally I love most of these listed, but I had to go with Pumpkin Pie. It is truly a favorite that is always served at my family's table on Thanksgiving. Though another that is not listed is my Grandma's homemade coconut cream pie which can only be described as heavenly.

Published: November 22, 2008 at 7:43 AMPumpkin pie is amazing, but I had to choose pumpkin roll cake. To me, that is truly a once year dessert that only happens on Thanksgiving.
Published: November 22, 2008 at 10:12 AMYou know the old saying, Ben: "An apple pie without some cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze." Whether you like it or not, that saying will now be running through your head all season....
Any other time of the year I would agree with apple pie...but Thanksgiving is sacred. Pumpkin Pie rules the roost.

Cool Whip, though? Eww. Say no to trans fat. Real whipped cream is soooo easy to make and so much tastier.
