What to Plan Now: Thanksgiving Pies

What to Plan Now: Thanksgiving Pies ~ here’s what I consider to be the best Thanksgiving pies for you to drool and dream over…but don’t dream too long, because time flies during the holiday season, and Thanksgiving is just a blink away.

In your heart of hearts you know it, even as you pull that big golden bird out of the oven on Thanksgiving day, everybody’s eyes are going to be squarely planted on your dessert table. It’s just human nature, and so you need to make sure all your bases are covered. I’ve got lots of pumpkin, of course, and pecan, but there’s other wonderful inspiration here too, so let’s get to it ~
