The Most Googled Thanksgiving Pies in Every Southern State
Thanksgiving desserts, how we love thee.
If you're anything like us, this time of year you're all about pie. Perhaps you use your mom's tattered-and-splattered recipe card, or a dog-eared recipe from your favorite cookbook. But in 2018, there's also a pretty good chance you're heading to Google for your pie reconnaissance.
In a new post on Google's blog, The Keyword, the search engine giant took a look at all things Thanksgiving, including desserts. Interestingly, they found pie preferences vary by state, and broke down the most-searched pies ahead of Thanksgiving by state. While the majority of the South (and America as a whole) was all about pumpkin pie, there were a few outliers. First, our friends in South Carolina are all about apples, with apple pie being the most-searched-for pie in The Palmetto State. Meanwhile, over in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, pecan pie reigned supreme with the highest number of searches.

Now, if only we could stop endlessly searching for various pie recipes and settle on which showstopper we're going to whip up this year. Alas, happy baking.
