Most families have not just one pie at their holiday table, but several. This dessert, though it might play second fiddle to pumpkin pie, is quite delicious in its own right. I like to sprinkle some chocolate chips on the crust before filling and baking, which brings this already rich dessert, well into the decadent category.
Pumpkin pie is a must-have on everyone's Thanksgiving table. I love this recipe because the custard is soft and smooth and doesn't require the use of canned milk. But it's also simple enough that my children can practically make it all by themselves. Brown sugar gives it plenty of rich caramel flavor, while its comforting aroma says, "Welcome home." You'll definitely want to save room for a slice…or two.
These savory scones make hearty snacks for midday or even a breakfast on the run.
These delicious treats add a little citrusy zip to dessert or snack time. They can be prepared whenever you have time, then tossed in the freezer and pulled out when you need them, which makes them perfect picnic fare.

Cobbler usually evokes thoughts of cooler days when the desire for comfort food runs high. When the cobbler is made with berries, though, it's all springtime to me. This cobbler is little on the cheating side, using canned biscuits in lieu of homemade dough and frozen berries replacing the usual fresh. My husband is just crazy about this and all but one of the kids consumed it like there was no tomorrow. I like it for the intense flavor from so few ingredients.
