It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving at our house if not for pumpkin pie, apple pie, and of course the turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. Well, and the Pumpkin Curry Soup. And… I’ll spare you our long holiday menu. However, traditions are a hallmark of holidays. Food traditions are no exception.
Our dessert table is robust for Thanksgiving. Always, always, always we have pumpkin and apple pies. Libby’s Pumpkin Pie is our tradition. And then… we play a little. Many years I’ve made turkey cut-out cookies and others bring anything that appeals to them that year.
This Pear Upside Down Cake is an incredibly moist and tender cake with amazing fall-inspired flavors of maple, cinnamon, and cardamom. It's a simple cake with a delicious flavor you'll love during pear season.
"This Easy Puff Pastry Apple Tart is seasonal, simple, and scrumptious! Store-bought puff pastry makes this dessert quick, easy, and approachable for even the most novice of home cooks. And just look how gorgeous it is!?!"
My husband’s German family calls this Oma’s apfelkuchen, which translates to "Grandma’s apple cake." They’ve been sharing the recipe for more than 150 years. I use Granny Smith apples, but any variety works.

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic fall dessert that's simple to make, soft, utterly delicious, and filled with warm spices. The velvety Cream Cheese Frosting makes these simple bars a standout favorite.
This Double Chocolate Baked Donuts recipe is amazing. My favorite, hands down. It's light and tender, filled with 2 layers of chocolate plus a third layer of glossy, decadent chocolate glaze. A touch of espresso just sweetens the deal.
