|Eggnog Pumpkin Pie|
Good morning, how was your weekend? Did you get your prep work done for the Thanksgiving holiday? We are making our plans and finalizing the menu. As I mentioned previously, I really love all of the side dishes but I also love dessert.
|Pumpkin Pie Cake|
Last week I mentioned a few Thanksgiving desserts but today I wanted to focus on my favorite dessert pumpkin.
|Pumpkin Pie with Leaves|
Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert ever.
|Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes|
|Pumpkin Pie with Maple Whipping Cream and Pumpkin Seed Brittle|
As I always make traditional pumpkin pie, I was thinking of branching out this year and trying something new.
|Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Torte|
|Pumpkin Pie Spectacular|
Don’t get me wrong, I am still going to make pumpkin pie, just in case I do not like the other options, but I feel like I should branch out, be a little open minded.
|Pumpkin Cheesecake with Candies Pecans|
There are so many great options using pumpkin: mousse, flan, cheesecake and ice cream to name a few.
|Pumpkin Mousse Trifle|
|Pumpkin Pie Bread|
I think I may make the cheesecake that is pictured above, it is from Southern Living and I had it last year at a friends, it is scrumptious!
|Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream|
Then again I have wanted to try a pumpkin “dump” cake.
|Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting|
What will you be making?
|Double Ginger Pumpkin Flan|
|Pumpkin Pie Bars|
I would love to know if you are making traditional pumpkin pie, or some other variation? For those of you that do not like pumpkin, and there are a few, what will you be making?
|Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Pie Topping|
On a side note, did anyone watch The Dust Bowl on PBS? My father in law lived through the dust bowl, his family lost their farm and he has told me incredible stories of what it was like. Watching this documentary by Ken Burns I have to tell you that in a million years whatever I imagined was nothing compared to the years and years of suffering these people survived. It truly is a miracle that anyone did survive. If you have not had the opportunity, I highly recommend it.
I hope you have a wonderful week, enjoy your travels, your family, friends and life!
