Good morning! As I mentioned a few times this week I am trying to come up with some menu ideas for Thanksgiving and although I love the potatoes and the yeast rolls to me the meal is all about the dessert!
After all what would a meal be without something sweet and sugary to cap it off; probably better for our waist line but one does not worry about that during the holidays. Or at least I don't.
My favorite dessert hands down is homemade pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream. It always reminds me of home and spending time with my mother and grandmother on the eve before Thanksgiving making pie after pie after pie. I like it chilled and made with extra spices but I do not like it made with roasted pumpkins.

Lucky for me a couple of my siblings do not like pumpkin pie, they prefer the traditional apple pie or my grandmother's Slab Apple Pie, leaving me a piece of pumpkin or two for a midnight snack.

What are your favorite Thanksgiving desserts? Pumpkin? Apple or Pecan Pie? Do you make your own or do you have a special bakery that you get them from?

I personally enjoy the entire ritual of making pies, the crust the peeling of the apples or the toasting of pecans and it is even more enjoyable when sharing that tasks with family and friends.
If you do not like apple or pumpkin pies but prefer something of the chocolate variety, check out Once Upon A Chocolate Life or visit my Fall Pinterest Board.
Have a great day!
