Naturally, when you think about a Thanksgiving dinner spread, you picture pumpkin pie somewhere in the cornucopia. The history of pumpkin pie is pretty interesting if you’re a dedicated foodie — the pumpkin was first used in Europe in the 1500s, and within that century, it became widely planted and harvested. Back then, they were called “pumpions,” named after the French “pompon,” which is a reference to their round shape.

But you know what’s more fun than talking about pumpkins? Eating pumpkins. Sure, you can make pumpkin-flavored cakes, or any pumpkin flavored dessert, really, but what is more classic than the pumpkin pie?

Lucky for us, Pinterest is the perfect place to search for the exact kind of pumpkin pie recipe that you want to bake, AND, with their new app update, there is an option to checkmark each Pin after trying out the recipe. Once you check the checkmark, you’re able to add tips and photos to suggest improvements or alterations. This means you can also see and learn from other peoples’ comments and recommendations, too.

Basically, what we’re saying is that Pinterest is poppin’ with a plethora of pumpkin pie recipes and how-to’s. Here are our faves:
