Q:Any suggestions for Thanksgiving desserts that can be made way ahead of time (2+ days)?
A: Are you kiddin' me? Pretty much any pie can be made ahead! I like the classic apple and an extra-smooth pumpkin, but really, any pie on this page will do you just fine. Store it in the fridge, then serve at room temperature—or, if you like, crisp it up in a warm oven for half an hour before serving.
