Four Unique Pies for Your Holiday Table

As we rush toward Thanksgiving day, I though it would be a good idea to share some of our favorite and unique pies that you can make to finish out your dinner.  Each of these pies reflects the flavors of the season, but with some unusual ingredients that will have your friends talking about your amazing culinary skills.    Here are our picks for unique pies for your holiday table.

Coconut Bean Pieslice of coconut bean pie

This pie isn’t light and creamy like a coconut cream pie, but it’s delicous.  It reminds me of a pecan pie with added coconut in place of the pecans.  None of our taste testers guessed that it contained beans.

Navy Bean Pie

This is the Patty Cake’s Pantry’s version of the bean pie, and is a great substitute for either a sweet potato or pumpkin pie.  If pumpkin prices are beyond your reach, cook some navy beans and give this delicious pie a try.  You’ll be glad you did.


Pecan Pinto Pie

pecan pie with pinto beans looks like pecan pie. No one will guess your secret.

This recipe is made from traditional pecan pie ingredients but contains pureed pinto beans in the filling  I promise you that no one will notice.  The beans add extra fiber and protein without detracting from the taste.   This is one of my favorites.

Ice Potato Pie

Similar to a traditional sweet potato pie, but made with mashed russet potatoes, this is a delicious and easy pie to make for the holidays.  Your friends and family will be surprised to learn that you can make such a delicious pie from plain potatoes.

That concludes our list of unique pies for your holiday table.  Each one of these is certain to impress your holiday dinner guests.  In our family, everyone has a different favorite.

Give them a try and let us know what you think.
