Pumpkin pie may be a love-it-or-hate-it dessert, but few can contest the fact that it has a rightful place at the holiday dinner table. Whether you're eating out for Thanksgiving, hosting your own meal or heading over to someone else's house, this seasonal treat is a staple on the menu—and, in our opinion, a better alternative to a PSL. After all the turkey has been eaten and all the bottles of wine are empty, here are the pumpkin pies you'll want to be sinking your fork into.
