The highlights of a Thanksgiving feast figure prominently in November’s top five reader-favorite recipes, from The Post Food section’s Recipe Finder database:

1.  Tiffany MacIsaac’s Double-Crust Apple Pie. The executive pastry chef shared the secrets of her favorite pie to make at home, which include a Gala apple filling that is pre-cooked, a pie crust dough that contains vodka, and a final sprinkle of salt and sugar.

2.  Brussels Sprouts California Style. It’s made bright with pomegranate seeds, pistachios and lemon juice.

3.  Mama’s Pecan Pie. From cookbook author Virginia Willis; as we’ve mentioned before, the pecan-to-goo ratio is what makes this rendition a standout.

4.  Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Onion and Apple. An apple cider reduction sweetens this dish.

5.  Herb-Crusted Roast (Butterflied) Turkey. The bird cooks faster and stays juicy.
