I love pumpkin pie! Love it, and I could eat it year round. The only problem, I am the only one that does. This year I will forgo pumpkin pie and enjoy other options that I am baking for my family.
My husband prefers anything chocolate and/or cheesecake. For his Thanksgiving dessert, I am making a cheesecake. Plus we have some lovely blueberries in the freezer for a lemon blueberry sauce, to go with.
My daughter prefers Pecan Pie, so that is what I am making for her dessert, this Thanksgiving. Pecan Pie has become a tradition for her dessert request each year. Don't get me wrong, I am not about to pass up a slice of Pecan Pie (or any pie for that matter.....), but let's be honest it is not pumpkin....
My Son - in - Law is not a fan of pie, period. So I am making a cake for his Thanksgiving dessert. I know just the one, it has a touch of chocolate, a little spice, and stays moist. My guess is, every one of us will probably get in eating some of the cake.......
One Thanksgiving many years ago I made a selection of pies to offer my guests, two pumpkin pies, one sweet potato pie, and one carrot pie. It was fun to try the different flavors, side by side.
I like having a selection of desserts when we have guests, and Thanksgiving always includes guests. Especially now that we live on the peninsula, even when the kids come home, they are guests.
If you have the same dessert story or something even close, I have a few suggestions for alternative desserts you might want to serve, in place of pumpkin pie.
|Refreshingly different and delicious Carrot Pie|
|Nova Scotia Cream Cake|
|Cranberry Blis Bars, yes just like the coffee house!|
|Pear Creme Pie|
|Brown Butter and Fruit Skillet Cobbler|
I hope you give these delicious desserts a try, if not this Thanksgiving, the next time you have family and friends at your table.
