Patti LaBelle's Sweet Potato Pie

Patti LaBelle's store-bought version of sweet potato pie shot to viral fame in 2015 thanks to YouTuber James Wright Chanel's side-splitting, and powerful, singing review. But the Godmother of Soul actually learned her original recipe from her best friend and hairstylist Norma Gordon Harris. This recipe makes a lot of filling so your pie will be super thick — and it really lets the flavor of sweet potatoes shine.

A splash of booze and a hint of molasses deepen the nutty flavor of this luscious pie.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving isn't complete without this rich and creamy treat — the champion of Thanksgiving desserts.

It's got the same creamy texture as pumpkin pie, plus an easy stir-and-bake assembly.

Spiced Apple-Cranberry Lattice Pie

Juicy fresh cranberries add refreshing tang to the classic dessert.

Chopped Oreos and microwave-melted chocolate form the base for the crowd-pleasing pie that has a no-bake filling.

Nigella Lawson's No-Bake Orange Tart

Pumpkin who? Guest may forget all about the classic after a taste of this ultra rich tart from chef Nigella Lawson.

Caramel Apple Pie

Caramel Apple Pie

Gesine Bullock-Prado

By adding just one more ingredient (heavy cream) to a traditional apple pie filling, this dessert becomes a glorious gooey caramel apple pie.

If you love brownies and classic pecan pie, then you'll fall head over heels for this gooey dessert.

Bonus recipe:

Making a homemade tart or pie crust is super easy with chef Curtis Stone's five-ingredient recipe.
