4 PIE RECIPES FROM THE CONSUMER REPORTS FAMILY TO YOURS
We asked some of our colleagues in food and sensory to share their favorite pie recipes in honor of Thanksgiving. It's our small way of giving thanks to you!
- •Maxine's pick: Butterscotch Pretzel PieA little non-traditional for Thanksgiving, but the combination of sweet butterscotch and salty pretzels should please everyone at your table. From the "Been There, Baked That" blog: http://beentherebakedthatrecipes.blogspot.com/2012/11/butterscotch-pretzel-pie.html

- •Claudia's Pick: Pecan PieThere's a reason why the Silver Palate Cookbook is on so many shelves, and why its pecan pie is on Claudia's table. http://www.thedailymorsel.com/2011/11/pecan-pie/
