It's tough to go wrong with a good pie on Thanksgiving. If you're in the mood for something other than the traditional apple or pumpkin pie, Cat Cora has just the thing for you.

The celebrity chef, author and restaurateur showed "GMA" how to make her grandmother's white chocolate pecan pie.

"You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, any chocolate that you love," Cora said. "I actually love her white chocolate pecan pie because it's the first one she ever made for me."
