Pecan Pie Cake

How is pie so amazing? Let’s count the ways.

It’s seemingly more rustic than cake, somehow a bit more rough and tumble. It’s deceptively simple and it can feel almost healthy (but not too healthy). It makes you feel closer to former generations. It’s so totally southern. It’s good. It’s . . .

The point here is, we’re on a quest to find some of the best semi-traditional Thanksgiving chocolate and pecan pie recipes the Internet can offer.

Here are just a few of our favorites below ranging from traditional grandma-approved dishes to the unorthodox cake/pie combo.
