Cranberry Velvet Pie

Let someone else make the apple and pumpkin pies. You bring along this little gem and watch the other pie-bakers shrivel up with jealousy. You can prepare all the components a couple of days ahead of time and make the pie (or tart) itself 24 hours in advance. It may not be the easiest pie you'll ever make — but it's the best, and most beautiful, Thanksgiving pie there is.

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

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 sliceā€¦or two.
