9 Thanksgiving Pies with a Jewish Twist

Pie season is here, and it’s putting us in the mood for a pie infused with our favorite Jewish flavors! If you’ve overdone it on pumpkin spice (we certainly have!), try adding something new to the recipe, like sesame seeds or even tahini. The recipes below show that there are so many ways in which tahini, coconut macaroons, pomegranate kernels, halvah or even labneh can be folded into these classic American desserts.
