There is no better way to end Thanksgiving dinner than with one of these easy Thanksgiving pies. And the best part is you don't have to be a baker to make any of these recipes. Many start with a frozen or refrigerated pie crust (which is, frankly, the hardest job of making any pie), and even the ones that call for a homemade crust are super simple to prepare.

I'll share with you my recipes for all the classics - pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, etc. - plus some new twists on old favorites. And don't worry about the chocolate-lovers. There are plenty of great choices for them, too.

  • Pumpkin Pie Recipe - This is my go-to recipe for a basic, easy pumpkin pie. Although you can substitute half and half or whole milk for the cream, the pie won't be as rich if you do. I recommend you go for the cream. It's Thanksgiving, after all.

  • Apple Pie Recipe - A refrigerated pie crust makes quick work of this apple pie. Use golden delicious or McIntosh apples for this apple pie.

  • Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe - A layer of pumpkin custard is topped with a layer of pecan pie filling in this doubly delectable Thanksgiving pie. This recipe is perfect for family members who can't decide between pumpkin or pecan pie - now they can have both in every bite.

  • Pecan Pie Recipe - Thanksgiving pies don't get much easier or sweeter than this simple pecan pie. This recipe has just seven ingredients. Serve topped with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  • Double Layer Pumpkin Pie Recipe - Is it a pumpkin pie or is it a cheesecake? It's both, and this pie is sure to become a staple at your Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Recipe for Apple Pie - A touch of maple syrup gives this recipe a rich fall flavor. Your guests may not be able to put their fingers on why this apple pie tastes so extraordinary, but I am willing to bet they will ask you for the recipe.

  • Chocolate Pecan Pie - The chocoholics at Thanksgiving dinner will adore you when you serve this pie. It's rich and sweet and guaranteed to lead to some belt-loosening after the meal. The best part is this pie can easily be made a day or two in advance and it will still taste great for Thanksgiving.

  • Pumpkin Pie with Maple Crumb Topping - For this unique pumpkin pie, a creamy pumpkin custard is topped with a maple streusel topping. The result is like a party of textures in your mouth.
