I am a huge fan of non-traditional holiday pie recipes. Apple, pecan, and pumpkin pies are overly done. Now cranberry pie bites? Oreo and pumpkin slab pie? GIRL. Count me in.
This post is sponsored by Fred Meyer and QFC stores, however, as always all opinions made are mine alone.
You Can’t Have Thanksgiving without Pie
Do you have any warm memories around Thanksgiving? The first thing that comes to mind when I think about Thanksgiving is being in charge of making the fruit salad and the pies growing up. I always shied away from making up the pumpkin pies because I didn’t like trying to get them into the oven without spilling all of the pumpkin-y goodness.
That kind of avoidance is what led me to experiment with new more non-traditional Thanksgiving pie recipes and I have put together SO many favorites over the years.
how to make the best thanksgiving pies
Whether you go with traditional or non-traditional Thanksgiving pie recipes, you need a good base. Most all pies require some kind of crust, and here are two of my favorite recipes from Fred Meyer.
First up, the super traditional crust. It has a secret ingredient that seriously sets it apart from any other pie crust recipe. Cream cheese! Seriously. It makes for such a tasty pie crust.
Then the second pie crust recipe I want to share is this gluten-free one that is from Fred Meyer as well.
I am not the most versed when it comes to gluten-free baking (though I am starting to learn in prep for a trial GF diet change!), but this recipe is highly rated & looks fantastic. I’ve never had a bad experience recreating a recipe from the Fred Meyer website, so I’d say this gluten-free pie crust recipe has to be a win!
What about the best pie filling?
After the crust comes finding the best quality ingredients for the fillings and you’re going to need to check out Fred Meyer for them. A great deal of the best Thanksgiving pies are made up of fresh fruits, and the quality you’ll find at any Fred Meyer or QFC store is incredible. When it comes time to get those Thanksgiving pies and desserts going, I always make sure to stop by my favorite Fred Meyer store for all of the ingredients I will need.
Last year I shared a live feed of my holiday shopping at my local Fred Meyer store and it was so fun to talk about the many scores you can get at Fred Meyer. They always have everything I need, but their amazing food quality is what keeps me coming back. They believe in putting their best, high quality foods first and forward and it really shows if you take the time to browse their expansive offerings.
Recently they have been putting out a lot of new offerings to their produce department under their Simple Truth and Private Selection labels and it is giving me ideas for a ton of new holiday recipes! Especially holiday dessert recipes.
