Life of Pie

thanksgiving dessertsWith my favorite holiday of the year just over 2 weeks away, my mind is in dessert idea overdrive. From pies to cakes to tarts, the ways to finish Thanksgiving dinner on a sweet note are endless. Though I’m constantly scouring magazines and food blogs for the latest turkey day dessert recipes, I often find myself going back to my old standbys: the family favorites and the recipes that hold the sweetest memories for me. Because isn’t this holiday season all about making memories and sharing laughter with your nearest and dearest? As I help plan my family’s menu for this year’s feast, I’ll keep this idea in mind instead of fretting over creating a flawlessly crimped pie crust (although that would be nice to finally master!) I’m looking forward to making one of my all-time favorite desserts, chocolate pecan tart, and I’d love to know what tried and true (or new!) recipes will be gracing your table come November 27th. Let them eat pie!
