What’s Your State Pie? Alternatives to Pumpkin Pie

There are plenty of foods to get excited about in preparation for Thanksgiving: perfectly roasted turkey, smooth and silky mashed potatoes, creative yam dishes, and tart and tangy cranberry sauce. But honestly…

I've never been a big fan of pumpkin pie.

There. I said it.

Don't get me wrong, I love pumpkin. Pumpkin cookies, cake, pancakes and even soup, but pumpkin pie has never been a favorite of mine.

Thank goodness there are an array of wonderful and different pies. Banana cream is definitely up my ally along with anything chocolate. We have a great assortment of pies here in the good old U.S.A. In fact, a piece of pie can give someone a sense of state pride. If I said I live in a place where the peach pies are in abundance, where would I be?

So- for those of you who share in my distaste for pumpkin pie, take a look at the list of pies below. This list was created on the premise if every state had a state pie. Would you have put down a particular pie for your state?

Maybe your "state pie" will tickle your fancy and become a new Thanksgiving tradition. I sure hope some peach pie will suffice as a new Georgia resident.

Enjoy and get pie happy!
