According to History.com, pumpkin pies have been a staple of Thanksgiving dinners for centuries,

By the early 18th century pumpkin pie had earned a place at the table, as Thanksgiving became an important New England regional holiday. In 1705 the Connecticut town of Colchester famously postponed its Thanksgiving for a week because there wasn’t enough molasses available to make pumpkin pie.

Taste of Home lists apple pie and peanut butter pie as the most popular in the United States. It also created a map of the most popular pie in each state for Pi Day, which was back on March 14. Weirdly enough, Google search data shows that New York's favorite pie is coconut cream. While coconut cream seems a little odd to me, it's not as bad as some of the other states,

Meanwhile, there were some very interesting pies that won a few states, such as sour cream raisin pie in Nevada, North Dakota and South Dakota, and crawfish pie in Louisiana.
