We do both pie _and_ cake, and usually throw in banana pudding and pumpkin cheesecake for good measure. Everything worth doing is worth overdoing, right?

That's the one that I usually follow. It sounds SLIGHTLY complicated if you make the crust but it's TOTALLY not. Plus, if you didn't want to make the crust you could always buy a frozen store bought crust.

It's ridiculously easy.

One year I made an apple pie, with a double cheddar pie crust, that took me about 2.5 hours and then a pecan pie that I made in about 15 minutes (not including baking times). My apple pie was not that great and my pecan pie ruled. Since then = ALWAYS pecan pie.

For Thanksgiving, my family usually bakes cakes. We normally have chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and yellow cake with chocolate frosting. For Christmas, my grandma bakes her amazing sweet potato pies.

Sweet potato pie is one of my favorites. We always had sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie which made it hard to determine which pie was which. The test was in the taste. In the South, at least in our household, sweet potato pie was made using vanilla flavoring and not the other pumpkin pie spices. It is so fantastic! My grandmother was German and used her own recipe. When I made a pie for a Thanksgiving dinner at the home of a friend, my friend's mom could not believe it--she was from Jamaica and that is how they made their sweet potato pies. It was definitely a hit at dinner.
