5 Pinterest Pie Recipes That Will Make Everyone Thankful

With Thanksgiving just two weeks away, we need to start thinking about what we will be eating and cooking for our family, friends, or just for ourselves! Personally, pie is one of my favorite dishes because it is something I only really eat during the Thanksgiving season! I went through Pinterest and picked some pies that looked the most delicious so I could share it with the readers to try! None of these recipes are mine, so each title has a link to the original recipe layout and more tips.

Chocolate Crack Pie

Prep Time : 15 minutes // Cook Time: 40 minutes // Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1 (4 oz.) bar semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 pie crust for a bottom-crust-only pie {Make your own or store-bought. If using a store-bought frozen crust that comes already in a foil pan, use 'regular' not 'deep dish.'}
  • whipped cream for serving {optional}


  1. Lightly spray an 8-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Fit pie crust into the bottom and up sides of pie plate; set aside.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate together in a small saucepan over very low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and immediately add sugar; stir until well combined. Allow to stand about 3 minutes to cool slightly.
  3. Place eggs in a mixing bowl; beat lightly with a fork or whisk. Add chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees on the bottom oven rack for 30 minutes. Move to top oven rack and bake for 10 minutes more. Cool to room temperature.
  5. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

Brown Sugar Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes // Cook Time: 1 Hour and 50 minutes // Total Time: 2 Hours and 10 minutes


  • Sweet potatoes – Baked, for the reasons I mentioned above.
  • Unsalted butter – At room temperature so it is easier to mix in.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Whole milk or evaporated milk – Do not use a milk with lower fat content.
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg (freshly grated is great if you have it), cloves.
    • You could also use a little pumpkin pie spice instead. I recommend doing 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
  • Salt
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust – Homemade pie crust or store bought. Cookies & Cups has a nice pie crust recipe you could use.
  1. Bake the sweet potatoes: Heat your oven to 400F. Wrap the sweet potatoes in foil and bake them on a cookie sheet until soft, about 45 minutes. Allow them to cool when done.
  2. Skin sweet potatoes: Once cooled, remove the skins from your sweet potatoes. You can do this by just pulling the skins back and scooping out the soft sweet potato flesh.
  3. Heat oven to 350F.
  4. Make the sweet potato pie filling: Mash the sweet potatoes and room temperature butter together in a large bowl. Whisk in the sugars, milk, eggs, vanilla, spices and salt. Keep whisking until the filling is well combined.
  5. Bake your pie: Pour the filling into an unbaked pie crust. Bake for 50-6o minutes. You will know your sweet potato pie is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The pie will rise while baking and then deflate after it cools.
  6. Serve. You can serve it warm or chilled. If you chill your pie you can add a dollop of whipped cream or marshmallow fluff on top!

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
