4. Whiskey Makes It Better Pumpkin Pie
After many years of experimenting it turns out that the secret to pumpkin pie is whiskey! Not enough that it becomes boozy, just enough to give it a tiny almost unidentifiable something extra. That said, the whiskey isn't strictly necessary, but like the title says, it definitely makes it better.
5. Squash Pie
Who says pie is just for dessert? Pie is a beautiful thing because it can be made sweet or savory. This pie, from True Food Kitchen, is a little bit of both, but airs on the savory side. This would make a great side dish to any dinner, or even a main course.
