It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only two days away! Last year at this time I was almost to my due date with my fourth child. In fact, I went into labor on the night of Thanksgiving. (I really just wanted to sleep.) But this will be my little turkey’s first Thanksgiving dinner and I’m so excited. (Although that is the first time I’ve ever called him that. I’m just really getting into the holiday.) To top off my excitement we have been enjoying our first snow fall of the year. The chill in the air declares the season!
I thought it would be a good idea to share some suggestions for the holiday, and as I was compiling a list of ideas… it became very clear where my priorities lie. The following are some tried and true sweet treats I can suggest without hesitation that you could proudly serve your family. At least I will be serving most of them to mine.
A classic rustic dessert: Sweet Potato Pie
A tasty twist on a long time favorite: Maple Pecan Pie
It’s a sweet bread, actually being served with dinner: Cranberry-Pecan Pumpkin Bread
A decadent family tradition: Pumpkin Cheesecake
It’s just the best: Mom’s Apple Pie
Okay, this is not a dessert but I had to add it because I will be eating this goodness during the parade and food preparation so it clearly evokes the day: Smoky Cheeseball
Happy Baking & Making!
