This Pecapplekin Pie Combines 3 Favorite Holiday Pies Into 1

Nothing says Thanksgiving quite like pumpkin pie. Or pecan pie. Or, wait, some people enjoy apple pie on Turkey Day, too. Hmm. So what’s a host to do?

How about you make all three?

Don’t worry. I am not asking you to make THREE pies for the big day. There’s not enough Pinot Grigio in the world to help you cope with that level of stress! Nope, instead I am talking about the most clever holiday baking recipe ever to circulate the internet: the Pecapplekin Pie.

Yep, you read that right. Three pies stacked into one. Three pies coming together to create the most epic Thanksgiving dessert ever known to mankind.

I know, it sounds a bit out there! But, think about it: Pumpkin, pecan and apple. These flavors of fall are already harmonious. Why not combine them into one scrumptious, heavenly pie? Not only will it be unique, but you will save yourself the time of making more than one pie!

Check out the video above and get the recipe from People.com.

Not everyone is loving the idea of the the Pecapplekin Pie. GQ writer Joshua Rivera calls it “an assault on a sacred national holiday tradition.”

While it may be too non-traditional for your tastes, one Twitter user made the good point that this clever recipe could help prevent holiday arguments. Which, let’s face it, after this election season, the last thing anyone wants is more arguments at the dinner table!

Shoofly Pie And 5 Other Old-Fashioned Pie Recipes Worth Bringing Back

Food trends are ever-evolving, paving the way for new dishes while the old ones get forgotten.

Well, we aren’t ready to let certain recipes be forgotten forever. Take these vintage pie recipes, for example. Although they may not be as popular as apple pie, there’s a reason these old-fashioned pies were once beloved.

Besides, knowing how trends go, it’s only a matter of time before what’s old is new again and every hip restaurant in town starts serving slices of vinegar pie.

So, go ahead and resurrect an oldie but goodie and try one of these six lesser-known but oh-so-delicious pie recipes.

Lemon Buttermilk Pie

This classic custard pie delicately balances sweet and sour. It uses just the staples — flour, buttermilk, sugar, eggs and butter — but it delivers a taste that will have you wondering why you hadn’t tried it sooner.

Get the recipe at Macheesmo.

Chocolate Chess Pie

Chess pie is a super-sweet Southern classic with two distinctive ingredients: cornmeal and vinegar. This chocolatey version takes the traditional chess pie up a notch, thanks to the addition of rich cocoa.

Get the recipe at Spicy Southern Kitchen.

Shoofly Pie

Shoofly pie comes from the Pennsylvania Dutch, and it gets its name from the flies that are attracted to its sweet, molasses scent. There are two versions of shoofly pie, one with a wet bottom and more of a custard consistency, and one with a dry bottom that is more cake-like.

Old-Fashioned Vinegar Pie

There’s that vinegar again. Vinegar pie sounds funky, but it was a staple back in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s time. In fact, you can find a recipe for vinegar pie in the “Little House on the Prairie” cookbook.

Twitter user @frenchcritter tried their hand at baking the vinegar pie and it looks like it came out perfectly!

It resembles a cream pie, but uses much less expensive ingredients (like vinegar). You won’t believe how light and creamy this pie turns out.

Sweet Potato Pie

Sure you’ve had pumpkin pie, but have you tried sweet potato pie? It is a favorite dessert in the southern region of the U.S. and is simple to make.

This buttery, vanilla-flavored pie is made with sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar and evaporated milk, making it a creamy fall dessert that rivals its pumpkin counterpart.

Get the recipe at Sage Trifle.
