Most Delicious Time of the Year

Pumpkinpiesu1117810l Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday.  Sure I love casseroles and fresh-baked rolls, but it’s the desserts that are to die for.  I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, but I do have a ginormous desire to stir, mix, fold, fluff, roll, and bake any recipe I can find.

This year, I’m going to my fiance’s house and have offered to bring some kind of dessert.  Apparently they have a pumpkin pie recipe that they’re bringing back into the dessert rotation, one with a meringue top, that sound divine, only no one has the recipe!  Anyone have meringue-topping tips to share?

For now, I’ve been checking out the abundance of pumpkin pie recipes on  I’ll be honest, I’ve never made, or even tasted, pumpkin pie before, so I’m almost overwhelmed by the amazing array of flavor combinations there are out there.  There’s Classic Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pie with Maple Cream and Sugared Pecans, Pumpkin Streusel Pie (pictured above), Soy Milk Pumpkin Pie, Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie, and even a Frosty Pumpkin Pie, served frozen.

The worst part?  They all look amazing.  What desserts do you most look forward to for Thanksgiving?  I’m an apple pie girl, myself, but I’m looking forward to a big slice of pumpkin pie this year.

    How is it possible that you’ve never tasted pumpkin pie? It’s so traditional for this time of year. I didn’t think there was anyone in America that hadn’t tried it. I think you’ll like it. My family makes a pumpkin cheesecake that is so good. We look forward to it all year. Have a happy thanksgiving.

    My grandmother’s pound cake … I can never bring myself to add as much butter as she does. It’s delicious.

    I was disappointed when I used your recommeded cooking time on my turkey, from the Nov issue. My 19 lbs turkey according to the magazines schedule should have been done in no more that 4 hours, when it actually took 6. My temp was correct and the cook book also said about 6. I wish I had checked another source before planning a 4 pm dinner time, we ended up eating at 6:30
