I’m in charge of the second dessert at our Thanksgiving celebration this year. I normally am. But here is the thing: we are already having pumpkin pie – and I’ve tried all kinds of other desserts in the years past and I’m at a loss of what to bake this year. We’ve had pecan pie, bread puddings, cheesecakes, chocolate pies, lemon meringues, and now I’m just stuck. I want traditional fall flavors, not something that I would make in the spring or summer. I want seasonal ingredients – and something that isn’t going to overwhelm me in the kitchen.. So I ask you friends… what to bake?!
Maybe an apple pie with a cheddar crust? A pear tart tatin? A maple walnut pie? What would you want on your table?
